The site is rather skimpy. The terms are only accessible when one is placing an order and one has to indicate one has read and understood those before proceeding with the checkout. It is advised that one does so as it talks about what goods can be returned and what cannot, expiration dates and other matters that could have been clearly outlined in a separate and easier to read page. . As such although the subject is buried in the terms and for some people might be difficult to read even if they read it at all. The privacy and disclaimer policy are also buried within the terms only. Also no FAQ has been provided so if you have any questions you will need to contact the company and ask directly.
Having said that the one review I could find was a positive one.
"Having dealt with Survival Supplies Australia for the first time I was frankly surprised by their level of professionalism and customer service. I have purchased from quite a range of online suppliers over the last few months, and I must say that these guys have turned out to be by far the best. They are prompt with returning your email inquiries, and super-fast with turning around your order once you have sent it. They even tossed in a few freebies to put the icing on what was a great shopping experience. I highly recommend them."
