COVID-19 - Delivery Notes
Delivery times are now back to normal which is 3-5 business days via regular post. Shipping rates have also been updated & reduced as of April 2021 to offer all our customers the best shipping rates possible nationwide and internationally.
For all local customers, we recommend selecting 'Contactless Pickup' from our store if you require your goods urgently. All click & collect orders will be ready for collection once notification has been sent via email.
For standard deliveries, if your parcel is taking longer than expected to arrive, we highly recommend that you raise an enquiry directly with Australia Post and quote the tracking number provided. Unfortunately once the item leaves our warehouse we have no control of where it is neither can we trace back to get more detailed information on top of what is provided with their website.
We do apologise for any inconvenience caused during this difficult time and are working as hard as we can to ensure deliveries are made promptly.***
We strive to offer you the best shipping options, no matter where you live and have therefore partnered with Australia Post for all domestic and international shipments given that they are the largest freight operator in Australia. Amongst them we also utilise other couriers such as StarTrack and Couriers Please upon request for urgent next day deliveries when requested.
The time frame for order delivery is divided into two parts:
- Processing time (1 Business Day): Order verification, tailoring, quality check and packaging can take up to 24 hours to fully process. From there consignments are then sent out to our couriers to be picked up the following day. *
- Shipping time (3-5 Business Days): This refers to the time it takes for items to be shipped from our warehouse to all local destinations except rural areas (5-8 Business Days). As for international deliveries, this usually takes about 10+ business days via regular Air Postage. For more information on International delivery time estimates, kindly refer to Australia Post's website here.
- Express Shipping (1-3 Business Days): The standard processing time typically applies (1 business day); however provided orders are place by 1pm AEST and under special considerations we can process them within an hour for same day pickup and delivery next day or day after depending on location. Information for express international shipping is available upon request.
- Contactless pick up option now available for customers within Victoria. To opt for this, kindly place your order as per normal and select 'Contactless Pick Up' during checkout. Once your order is ready for collection, we will notify you by email.
