Shopping with 4x4 Down Under: Dale and the Guys couldn’t have done any more to provide a fluid and smooth transaction. The Winch was even at more door within 24 hrs how’s that for service and post Covid too.
Warm Evo 12s

Great looking Winch finish is very good quality. Haven’t had the opportunity to use it in Anger as yet but given it’s a warn what more do you need to say!

Thank you for the great review James. Pleased to know that you are happy with your new Winch. Please feel free to contact us should you require anything else.

Shopping with 4x4 Down Under: Absolutely fantastic
Quickest delivery time ever!

I ordered the Warn VR-Evo Winch from 4x4 Down Under on a Friday at 11:30, it arrived that afternoon at 3:30 so for service and delivery a definite 10/10. I have only run the winch in and out as yet because of lockdown but it came as advertised and in excellent condition. I would definitely buy from these guys again, a big thank you to Dale and the team at 4x4 Down Under.

Hi Matt! Thanks for the great review. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you ever need anything else.

Why Shop at 4x4 Down Under?

We know that you have a lot of options out there, and we’re incredibly grateful that you’re considering spending your hard earned money with us. We like to think we stand out from the crowd in a few ways.

Excellent & Honest Service

We try and provide the best pre and after sales service possible. If you have a question we’re here to help, and if we don’t know the answer we’ll tell you and then do our absolute best to find the answer for you. We’re also here to guide you to the best possible outcome for you. A lot of stores will simply try to up-sell you on the most expensive option. That’s not how we operate. We want to build a relationship with our customers, and the only way to do that is by being honest and direct.

4x4 Down Under is built on honesty and integrity. For example when you make a purchase with us we only charge your account once we confirm the product is ready for dispatch. Although we like to guarantee everything on our store is available we’re not perfect and mistakes do happen. If something turns out to not be available we’ll let you know immediately and you have the option to cancel your order or wait for more stock to arrive. Should you not want to wait the order is voided, and there’s no waiting a week to get your money back (it’s instant!).

Aussie and Proud!

We're Australians, and we like to support our fellow Australians, which is why all our products are sourced locally from the official Australian distributors. Nothing is imported directly and we don't stock any grey imports. This also means that all manufacturer warranties are fully honored by the brands themselves.

No Sales Gimmicks 

When you shop at 4x4 Down Under you don’t have to worry about:
  • Annoying and dishonest ’Sales Timers’ that simply reset every few hours and are there to coerce you into buying.
  • Dishonest “low stock” labels, another coercive sales gimmick.
  • False “John just bought a…” alerts. Our customer alerts (bottom left) are 100% true and we're proud of them.
  • Being bombarded by trust badges and labels everywhere you look that mean nothing. 
  • We don't spam! Your information is safe with us. It will never be shared or sold, or used to fill your inbox with garbage.

Fast Shipping with Insurance!

We've partnered with some of Australia's best couriers and freight agents to ensure your purchase reaches you in super-quick time. Once your order has been dispatched you'll receive tracking information which will allow you to track your order online every step of the way. And if something should happen to your order while in transit you can rest assured that it's insured and you won't lose a dime!

If you still have any doubts feel free to give us a call on 1300 76 86 41, or contact us here. We'd love to hear from you.
