Shipping – Warranty – Returns
PLEASE NOTE: We do send to PO Boxes or Parcel Lockers though some larger items may not be accepted. If you can please include your full shipping address as well as your PO Box number, and you can add a note when you are in the Check Out page. We can then do our best to get your parcel safely to you in as short a time as possible.
PLEASE NOTE: YOU ARE ACCEPTING ALL TERMS AND CONDITIONS, INCLUDING OUR DELIVERY TERMS AND CONDITIONS WHEN PLACING AN ORDER ON THIS SITE, OR WITH OUR SALES TEAM.
We can generally dispatch your order within 1 business day of receiving full payment during normal business times of the year. There may be exceptions such as Christmas and New Year when this will be longer. We will contact you directly should there be any issues around our delivery service or potential shipping delays. All Items are currently shipped from our Melbourne warehouse.
Unless otherwise arranged and agreed with the Sales Team, all orders will be shipped together. This Includes back-ordered and advance order Items. If ordered with an In-stock Item, the entire order will be shipped as one order once the outstanding stock is available.
We deliver door to door Australia Wide* (*door to door delivery only applies to areas where a carrier will deliver to. There may be cases in REGIONAL or REMOTE areas where delivery stops at a service centre or the nearest storage facility. In these cases customers must then arrange to have their goods collected at their own cost. Please designate a shipping address closest to your destination, e.g. general store or shipping depot closest to you)
Our shipping charges are based upon either the product(s) cubed weight or the product(s) dead weight. The heaviest is used to calculate the shipping charge.
We may provide an approximate delivery time frame once your order ships. However we advise on all interstate orders and regional areas to allow a minimum of 10 business days, and 20 business days as a worst case scenario to allow for circumstances beyond our control, and also for peak season delivery periods such as Christmas.
In all cases, customers MUST keep the original packaging until they are happy with their order, do not discard the packaging until you are satisfied that you are happy with all of the items delivered.
We will, when required, pass customer email and mobile phone details to courier companies for the purposes of providing tracking notifications.
We may validate addresses to ensure that deliveries go smoothly. If we identify a postal address on your Order that is entered incorrectly, is incomplete or doesn’t follow the format used by carriers, we may make minor adjustments to the address – such as abbreviating a state name (e.g. from ‘Queensland’ to ‘QLD’), fixing a typo, or ensuring that your suburb name matches your postcode.
CHANGE OF ADDRESS
Any change of delivery address made once your order has been dispatched may incur a surcharge, this is set at that time by the carrier and will need to be paid for prior to any delivery address changes being applied to the delivery. Please also note that the delivery charge may be greater to a different postal address than the original price paid. If this is the case, the difference in price will need to be paid for in addition to any surcharges and also in advance of any changes being made.
Our delivery company will require access to the delivery address, if access is not available for a large truck then alternative arrangements will need to be made. You must notify us of any potential access/delivery issues when placing your order. If the carrier cannot gain access to the delivery address to deliver, there will be additional re-delivery charges to be paid prior to the re-delivery.
FOR LARGER ASSEMBLED OR PART ASSEMBLED LARGE ITEM ORDERS, THE DRIVER MAY REQUIRE ASSISTANCE UNLOADING THE VEHICLE FOR DELIVERY. THE DRIVER CANNOT DELIVER ITEMS UP STAIRS OR STEPS, OR VIA LIFTS. THIS IS IN ACCORDANCE WITH AUSTRALIAN HEALTH AND SAFETY LEGISLATION.
If assistance is not available, then a tail lift truck may be required to deliver the goods. A quote for this will be provided at that time, and must be paid for prior to any delivery being made.

If any items are damaged, delivery of that Item(s) can be refused or MUST be marked on the carriers records as DAMAGED. No Exceptions. Do not sign the carriers documents until you have Inspected the goods.

Ourselves or the carrier will endeavour to contact you either prior to or on the date of delivery should this arise. We cannot and will not accept claims or liability for damages, costs etc arising from the non delivery under any circumstances.
