If a courier attempts to deliver a consignment that has been visibly damaged in transit, it is your responsibility to inspect the items and reject the delivery if any items are damaged.

The products we sell come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.

Where a refund is due, you will receive the refund in the same manner of payment originally used for purchase, within 5 business days of our receiving the returned items (where applicable).

DELIVERY POLICY

When placing your order, you will select form what will usually be a variety freight options. Each option will have an expected delivery date or expected delivery time-frame. This date is not a promised date, nor a commitment to ensure delivery is completed by this date. This is simply a "best guess" by our site based on carrier quoted delivery time-frames, stock availability and average dispatch times. It does not allow for unexpected delays in supply or transit, nor will it factor in some public holidays.

Please select the option that best suits your needs. We reserve the right to ship your order using an alternate method provided it offers an improved delivery speed or standard, or in the event that there are issues with the selected delivery method.
