Unattended Delivery Addresses & Authority to Leave
Deliveries are generally made Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. As such we recommend you use a business address or an address where you, or someone you designate, will be available to sign for your delivery.
Alternatively, you can give Authority to Leave (permission for your parcel/s to be left somewhere near the front door) on your parcel/s. If you have requested a signature upon delivery and no one is available to sign, your parcel/s will be taken back to the depot and a card will be left to organse alternative arrangements. Re-delivery can usually be arranged however this will normally incur an additional charge at your expense. If no signature has been requested, at the discretion of our courier services the parcel/s may be left at the given address in a safe spot, or taken to the depot and a card left to organise alternative arrangements.
We have accounts with several national delivery companies including (but not limited to): AusPost, Toll IPEC and Couriers Please to deliver our products around Australia. The services available and used for your order will depend on the destination, size, and weight of the items and delivery time frame.

Some orders we are unable to deliver to a PO Box or Parcel Locker due to restrictions put in place by Australia Post on parcel sizes:

If you provide us with a PO Box or Parcel Locker delivery address and we are unable to deliver your order to it, we will contact you as soon as possible to make alternative arrangements.
