If you’ve clicked on this tab, you’re obviously looking for a reason or two on why you should shop for your gaming goodies at Gamer Gear Direct, rather than those other online stores.
And we’ll (not so) humbly say there’s lots of reasons we think you should shop with us…and not hand over your hard-earned cash at one of those big box retailers like Harvey Norman or JB Hi-Fi.
First up, we’ve got a policy here at Gamer Gear Direct we like to call…
100% customer happiness guaranteed (we mean it!)
OK, so the above title might sound a little corny to you, but it’s true.
We’ll bend over backwards to ensure you are 100% happy and satisfied with everything you buy from us.
We want you to tell your friends and family about your experience with us (and hopefully that’ll mean they visit our website, too).
And the only way you’re going to do that is when you’re happy with our service, right?
See, we’re not one of those big box electronics stores with a multi-million marketing budget. Those companies treat you like a number. Because they can afford to! They’ve got money coming out of their ears.
We’re different. We’re a small Aussie business. Every single potential customer that hits our website is precious to us (that includes you).
So, again, we’ll do everything we can to make sure you’re over the moon with your Gamer Gear Direct shopping experience.
Do you think Harvey Norman can promise that kind of service? Probably not.
But look, you don’t have to take our word for Here’s what our customers are saying about us…
Ashley Woolnough says: ‘I want to say a huge thank you to Blake and the team at Gamer Gear Direct. The service has been absolutely impeccable from the moment I first looked at items to the moment they were delivered. I bothered Blake quite a bit, but nothing was too much trouble and he went above and beyond to help me. 5-star service’.
Joe Platt had this to say: ‘Just want to say how awesome the gaming chair is that we bought. Amazing quality, helpful service and the fastest delivery of an online purchase. Arrived Next Day!’
And this from B. Richardson: ‘Purchased an Audeze headset and it arrived inside two days. Thanks for the fast shipping and great service!’
That’s not an exhaustive list, either. There are plenty more happy customer stories we could share with you.
But let’s move on…
Five-star customer support. We’re just an email, phone call or live chat away. We’re here to help you day or night
‘Officially’ we’re around to support you and help you out with your questions and queries between normal business hours (Mon to Fri, 9am to 5pm).
But just between us…we’re pretty much here to help you out around the clock, 7 days a week.

If you need a hand with anything just email us, call (03) 9000 0545 or open the live chat function and we’ll help you in any way we can.
