SHIPPING CHARGES, METHODS & PROMOTIONS

Delivery Fees

Shipping is calculated based on size, weight and destination location.  Shipping fee options will be displayed during checkout before payment is made. You must ensure you enter the correct spelling of the Suburb, and ensure the correct Postcode is listed. Postcode and Suburb errors will mean the shopping cart cannot offer you a shipping price. Any changes made to the order or the delivery address after placing the order may incur additional charges.

We cannot deliver to PO Boxes or Parcel Lockers.

Courier Options (Within Australia Only):

We use multiple carriers for our delivery services.

  • Fastway – for most metropolitan locations
  • Toll Ipec – for remote/regional locations
  • Star Track – for outer metro/regional locations
  • TNT – for outer metro/regional locations
  • Australia Post – Only on rare occasions
  • Select ‘Pick it up yourself’ to organise your own courier

Selecting Your Preferred Courier:

If you want us to use a specific courier you must select the carrier and also add note in comment field during the checkout process i.e. Use Toll only. If you don’t add the note – we may elect to ship with another carrier if circumstances suit.

 

Delivery failure: 

You must verify your information is correct before placing your order. If the address provided is incorrect and the package is returned, you will be billed for the additional shipping charges in order for your delivery to reach you. You agree to this by placing an order with us, we reserve the right to pass on applicable charges to you if you provide wrong address information. We also require a contact phone number, which may be used by the courier to arrange delivery. If we and our delivery partner, have been unable to deliver or get in touch with you after 7 days or 2 attempts to contact (whichever is sooner), we reserve the right to cancel your order. In these circumstances we will refund you the price of your order, less the delivery and handling fees incurred by us

Shipping Insurance (only applicable for deliveries within Australia)

For your convenience and peace of mind we offer Shipping Insurance for a small fee during checkout. This is not mandatory. We do our very best to ensure orders leave our premises in secure and well packed parcels to minimise all possibility of breakages, but there is no way we can guarantee this when orders are shipping across Australia.  Shipping insurance is calculated approximately 3% of total order cost.  By taking out shipping insurance you are automatically covered for any breakages in transit or lost orders. Shipping Insurance is not available for international deliveries.

Damaged In Transit

If insurance protection is selected and you have found damaged items, you must advise us by email within 24 hours of receipt of delivery. Please see our Claims Process here. Upon receipt the order number and proof of damage (by way of clear photos of damaged product and shipping cartons), Glassware Imports will more often than not apply a credit coupon to your user account for the value of the damaged item(s). The type of remedy we offer will depend upon the circumstances. We will discuss this during the claims process. We do not automatically reship damaged product because often the value will be far less than the courier fee. We have also found that more damage occurs when we send small light weight parcels.

In the case of lost orders, we will dispatch your order in our next cycle.

For more information about the claims process and timelines for submissions please refer to Claims Process here 

If the product is damaged during delivery and you have not elected to apply insurance cover during Checkout, then Glassware Imports is under no obligation to credit damaged items.  

Additional Shipping Charges

Due to many possible variables of an order, on-line shipping charges may not calculate properly during the check-out process. In this case, 

  • if additional shipping charges are applicable we will contact you for further approval.  If you do not accept the additional charge we will cancel your order without penalty and refund you accordingly. 
  • On occasion if we find we can ship your order for less than the nominated online charge, we will do so and credit the difference to your online user account.
  • On occasion for extra large orders sometimes a special truck needs to be booked with a tailgate if there is no forklift at the destination. Additional charges for this will apply and we will always contact you first for approval and payment before dispatching.
