Our success is linked to your satisfaction.
Packing & Delivery
We do everything we can to pack your order and deliver your products to you as fast as possible.
There may be rare occasions where a product you have ordered is not available in the warehouse. In such cases we will advise you of a new delivery date and give you the option of a similar product or a refund of the products that are not immediately available.
In general we pick and pack within 48 hrs. Anything outside of this time will be communicated to you.
We use the fastest road freight companies in Australia, featuring next day delivery to Melbourne CBD and Brisbane CBD and 5 to 10 day delivery to Perth.
Occasional delays by delivery companies are unfortunately out of our control, however we will do everything we can to keep you informed of the status of your delivery.
If you need your hospitality supplies for an event or by a specific date, please be sure to select the date during checkout or email us directly, so we can give your order the attention it deserves.
If the products you ordered arrive broken, notify us within 24 hrs receipt of goods (including photo's) and we will replace them free of charge - simple as that!
Sometimes our delivery guys get a little excited in the rush to deliver and can break the odd glass or 2, but mostly they are very caring and efficient.

'Standard delivery' is $15 inc GST to most locations in Australia. Simple as that.
Our delivery prices apply to online orders for mainland Australia only. Some online shops charge based on your location, but the reality is that this is not fair to everyone. We love all customers, no matter where you are and no matter how much you spend.
Timing: Our standard delivery timing estimates vary from 3 days in capital cities up to 12 days to Perth. It is the least cost route. By selecting standard delivery, you are telling us that your order is not needed for a specific date and delays are acceptable.
'Priority / Business Critical' delivery is $25 inc GST to capital cities in Australia. You're saved!
When you pay the extra $10, your order gets shoved to the front of the queue (you queue jumper!) and we send with TNT Road Express or Direct Freight. TNT specialises in reliable business to business deliveries so we will need to deliver your order to a business address. Please make sure you state the business/company name of the destination.
Timing: Order before 2pm for next business day despatch. 1-2 business days to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. 2-3 business days to Adelaide, 3-4 business days to Perth. TNT or Direct Freight are used. Capital Cities only.
Authority to Leave (ATL) means that the courier will leave your order at the delivery address when no one is present. If your delivery address is residential and you do not select ATL, and you are not home to receive, you may be charged for re-delivery fees incurred by the courier.
We also offer a Regional Delivery $30 inc GST flat rate option for customers that live outside of large cities. Sending luggage racks to Far North Queensland for example can cost a fortune, but when you order with us, the most you'll ever pay is $30.
If you are off the beaten track our Remote Delivery $45 inc GST flat rate option is applicable to you.We've added this delivery option to cater for customers that live in sparsely populated areas.
We are adding new manufacturers all the time and their locations are all over Australia. Most of the time delivery will be super fast, however sometimes not, but rest assured we are continually doing everything within our ability to get you your hospitality supplies as fast as humanly possible.
We reserve the right to change our delivery fee for extreme regional, remote and outback locations and for bulky products. In the event of excess delivery fees we will contact you directly to advise the options available. Please note that telephone and email orders will be charged the full delivery cost, which is usually more than our online delivery prices. This is to cover our staff's time in manually processing telephone orders.
Returns & Replacements
Change of mind - We understand that things change, therefore returns within 5 days are fine. Depending on the hospitality products being returned we may need to charge a restocking fee equivalent to 20% of the value of the products being returned.
Exchanging - We can avoid a restocking fee by exchanging items, for example if you want to change the size of a glass, simply order the new products you want and inform us you are sending back the products you don't want. When exchanging products, the hospitality products need to be similar in type and quantity. Once we receive your returned products we will refund you.
Return delivery needs to paid for and organised by the customer. All goods being returned must be in original packing and fit for resale. On return of the goods in satisfactory condition, you will be refunded your original purchase price minus the original delivery cost and minus any restocking fees. Customers must accept the risk of breakages in returning for change of mind or exchange.
Products must be returned within 5 days of the original order.
Broken items - Products damaged during transport must be advised within 24 hrs of receipt of goods. We will arrange for free return of such items upon receipt of your advise or RMA form. Replacement products will be sent upon receipt of damaged stock or can be expedited by contacting us.
