About Us

Where was Aussie Disposals started?
Our first store was in Moe – in 1962.

Are you Australian Owned?
Yes we are – 100% Australian owned.

Why do you sell ex-army products?
They are built tough and last almost forever.  They are built to a specification not a price, so when you need a product to last in a tough environment, an ex-army one may be the one for the job.

Do you have a “community conscience”?
We sponsor such events as the Pajero Challenge run by the Victorian Pajero Club. We also support many local Scout groups, Cadet Corps and other community organisations.

I notice that you sell ski gear?
We sure do.  In the winter months we convert 10 of our stores into Aussie Ski Centres. 
We stock a huge range of clothing and accessories, plus have a huge technical ski hardware department at our Melbourne store.

Is Aussie Disposals all franchised?
We have 13 Franchise stores and the other 26 are company owned.

I am a VIP Member - How do I get my discount when ordering online?
Unfortunately you do not get your VIP discount online at the moment.  If you visit your nearest Aussies store and show them your VIP card they will be happy to provide the discount.

Can I buy everything in your online store or are some items only available in-store?
For security reasons some items, such as knives, are only available in our stores.  Other items that are difficult to send in the mail (such as fishing rods and nets) and heavy items such as fridges and large tents are only available in store.  Any item not available for purchase online is clearly noted.

Do you offer school discounts online?
No, school discounts are currently only available in store.

Why are some goods not shippable?
Some goods are not permitted to be delivered because of health and safety reasons. Other items, like knives for example, require the person to present themselves for identification. Finally, some items are just too big and awkward to ship.
