Clarke Trade Shipping Guide

🚛 OUR SHIPPING IS COMPLETELY FREE AUSTRALIA WIDE! 🚛

 

Orders are generally shipped from our distribution centre, which is located in Melbourne, the next working day after full payment is received.

Clarke Trade is working with multiple providers to ensure the fastest and most cost effective delivery service.

 

How long does it take to deliver my order?

The estimated delivery time frames are:

  • For customers in VIC, approximately 3 - 5 working days;
  • For customers in NSW, SA, ACT, approximately 4 - 8 working days;
  • For customers in QLD, NT,WA and TAS, approximately 7 - 10 working days.

Peak Periods: 

If we expect delays during a peak period or in the unexpected event of an error, we will notify you and take which ever actions may be reasonable or necessary to improve the situation. We will endeavour to get the product to you as soon as possible.

NOTES:

  • Delivery time only starts after buyers’ payments have been cleared and the item has been dispatched from our warehouse (usually 1 working day after receipt of cleared payment).
  • We are unable to guarantee a delivery on any specific dates or times as this is not something our delivery partners would be able to guarantee either.
  • It is the buyers responsibility to provide safe and hassle free access for the delivery.

 

Undeliverable Packages

In the unlikely event that your parcel is returned to us, a representative will contact you via email.

 

Inaccurate address

If there are any address discrepancies with your order or the product is returned us, a team member will be in touch. A re-delivery cost will occur for any products that are returned to us.

 

Unsuccessful Delivery Attempt

If no one is present when the order arrives and it is being delivered by Australia Post, a notification will be left in the mail box for you to pick
up your parcel in your local Post Office. If your item is delivered by Fastway or Allied Express, arrangement will be made in advance to ensure
your item to arrive at your door at your convenience. A re-delivery cost will occur if you are not home at the arranged time.

 

Rejected by Receiver

If your item is a gift, please ensure the receiver knows about it to avoid parcel rejection. A re-delivery cost will occur if parcel has to be resent.

The expected time delivery given by each courier is for reference only. Delivery might take longer than expected due to various
