SHIPPING & RETURNS

SHIPPING IN AUSTRALIA

All SMALL ORDERS are sent via courier which may take 3-5 business days for metro areas and up to 10 business days for regional locations. If you are not home to receive your parcel and the driver feels it’s not safe to leave, a calling card will be left and you can collect your parcel from your nearest post office.

PLEASE NOTE:  We will not in any circumstance deliver goods to a post office box.

All MEDIUM ORDERS are sent via one of several freight carriers. Our standard agreement with our carriers does not include a call to arrange delivery and the delivery details shown on the carrier websites are estimated and we cannot take any liability for late deliveries. We do not send items to a PO Box. We recommend you to provide a street address for delivery. Usually a signature upon delivery is required for proof of delivery. However, if you are not going to home at the time of delivery, please leave a comment at checkout to advise if it is ok to leave the item at the door. If you choose to do this, then you’ll do that at your own risk.

If, for any reason, our shipping partner is unable to successfully deliver your order they should leave a card with further delivery instructions. In these situations, we  reserve the right to charge you for any additional costs incurred (e.g. shipping) or to cancel the order, in which case, we will fully refund you the net amount (i.e. the amount you paid minus shipping or storage costs).

All LARGE ORDERS (e.g Furniture) are mostly shipped using a two men delivery service. Once your order has left the warehouse you will be notified via email. The carrier will typically contact you in order to arrange a delivery time. Upon delivery, the driver will carry your furniture and place it inside your home. Please note that it may not be advisable to give an authority to leave large items at your door as we will not be held liable for any loss.

Please contact us first if you would like to check if your location may be subject to unusually high freight charges.

REGIONAL DELIVERIES

A ‘door to door’ service is not possible in some locations throughout Australia. (e.g. farms, addresses outside of regional towns, etc.)

Also, if goods are too heavy or large and a driver cannot safely pickup or deliver the goods on their own, the consignment must be dropped off and picked up from a local depot by the customer.

We make every effort to recycle packaging materials where possible. In order to minimise packaging, we may pack some of your small items together. For example, if you order 4 different items, they may be packaged together in one cellophane bag or box. This also helps prevent the items from getting squashed in transit.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

Our shopping cart is not setup to reflect international shipping costs at this stage.
