When you are filling out your shipping details please include as much detail as possible, we require a company name if the item is going to a business address, full address, email and mobile phone. For example;

A Multitude of staff members could receive your goods and without the information listed above there is a great chance you may not receive your goods during your stay
Authority to leave
Be very careful when authorising a parcel to be left without anyone physically present to receive it. Only allow this if you are 100% certain that the area is safe and easy for the courier to find
Unit blocks with limited access and letterboxes only are very difficult for couriers to assure delivery. Can you use your work or maybe a friends address which may have better access to receive a parcel?

“How long until my item is delivered” is a question we get asked frequently!
Sydney and surrounding suburbs is one to two working days
Brisbane, Melbourne two to three working days
South Australia, Northern Territory, Western Australia and Rural areas nationwide can take five to seven working days.
Please understand that this is a generalisation based our experience over time and once your item is dispatched it is in the hands of the freight companies, my recommendation is to follow the tracking of your item and contact the freight company if you require further information on your delivery.
Depending on the freight company used they have different methods of dealing with an item that they haven’t been able to deliver successfully, in most cases there wasn’t anyone at the delivery address to receive the item.
Australia post will leave a card in your letterbox and you will need to pick your item up at the local post office.
Couriers Please will leave a card to advise you that they will attempt delivery one more time, it is imperative that you contact Couriers Please following the details on your card to organise redelivery, failure to organise and being unavailable for the second delivery will result in your item either being available for pick up at a depot or you will be responsible for redelivery charges.
Toll Couriers will deliver once if you are not available you will be required to pick your item up from a depot or organise the cost of redelivery.
