Shipping

We are committed to providing the safest and best value for money shipping services.

We use trackable Australia Post satchels for smaller items and Parcel Post or road freight for larger items which will not ship in a satchel. Shipping options will be displayed at checkout and estimated transit times vary according to shipping option chosen. Express post is generally overnight to designated areas. Where post is chosen, we include complimentary insurance for any order over $300 which falls within Australia post size limits. We reserve the right to substitute road freight for Australia Post where it will provide a more efficient service unless otherwise instructed.

Very large items are security wrapped and secured to a protective timber skid. Why do we do this? Freight companies use forklifts on large items whether they’re on a skid or not. Non skid items are frequently dropped. We ship these larger items are shipped with Hunter Express couriers and when purchased brand they are fully insured until signed for on collection.

Please contact us if you would like confirmation on shipping prices on any item or if your shipping quote fails for any reason.

Local pickup from our warehouse in Northcote, Victoria (3070) is also available.

Delivery  
We know you will be excited about the purchase of your new equipment and will want it to arrive quickly, safely and in perfect working order.

If the delivery process does not meet your expectations, we want to hear about it.

In order to make sure your order is received on time and in in perfect condition, it is important that we explain how delivery works:

Delivery Date 
We will provide you with tracking information for your shipment. Our shipping companies all provide an estimated delivery day and we forward this information to you. Please be mindful that all dates specified are estimates only. If nobody is present to accept your order, we may be charged a redelivery fee and we will on-charge this fee to your account.

Make sure someone is home 
Our couriers attempt to deliver to business or home addresses between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee a delivery time. Therefore, if you’re not able to guarantee someone will be available to accept delivery, please nominate an alternative address that is occupied all day. If your circumstances change for the day your machine will be delivered, call Hunter Express on 132252 to arrange an alternate delivery date.  Should the courier not find anyone to accept the delivery, there will often be an additional charge payable by you for redelivery. Equipment cannot be delivered without a signed proof of delivery confirmation collected by the delivery driver.

Correct address
Please make sure you provide the correct delivery address details at the time of ordering. Should you enter the wrong address, you will be liable for any charges we may have to pay on your behalf. Should your item be lost as a result of you providing us with an incorrect address, we will accept no liability for that loss.

Insurance
Any brand new espresso machine or espresso grinder freighted with Hunter Express is fully insured from the time of pick-up to the time of delivery. Insurance on used items and repairs in transit is limited to a total of $1000 inc GST.

If the goods are not delivered and cannot be located within a reasonable timeframe, we will send a you replacement.

If your newly purchased insured product arrives damaged, we will cover the reasonable cost of repair to the goods. Our liability is limited to the value of the goods as it appears on your Tax Invoice at the time of purchase. A signed proof of delivery noting damage is required for us to submit an insurance claim on your behalf.

In the unlikely event that something goes wrong with your shipping, the most important thing is to be patient while we work to solve the problem. You satisfaction is our primary concern

If your order arrives damaged 
For all insured goods, please inspect your package when you receive it from the shipper. If the box is visibly damaged, you MUST inspect the item with the delivery driver and note the damage on the delivery confirmation then contact us immediately and DO NOT USE the machine.

Ensure that you keep all packaging (boxes, shipping labels, packaging material, etc.), as the shipper may want to inspect the package.

If your order doesn’t arrive
It is your responsibility to inform us if an order does not arrive. Once we learn an order has not arrived by the estimated delivery date, we will follow up with Australia post or the courier. Please note that if an insured item is not delivered, we will ask you to wait for a reasonable period before dispatching a replacement item. Replacement items will be dispatched solely at our discretion.

We will not accept liability for any loss or damage arising from a late or uninsured delivery. By placing an order, you agree that a late delivery does not constitute a failure of our agreement, and does not entitle you to cancellation of an order. We will also not accept liability for any loss or damage arising from items lost, stolen or damaged after delivery has taken place.
