Australia Post have advised us of delays within their delivery network due to a significant increase in demand, a reduction in air freight capacity, and health and safety measures such as social distancing at their facilities. More information can be found on the Australia Post website.
Our delivery partners will continue to offer a contactless delivery solution, with no signature required. We apologise for any inconvenience these temporary measures may cause.
Victoria destined Parcels
With the massive demand and workforce capacity constraints, we foresee an additional 3 day delay for deliveries in Victoria. This is both within and into Victoria.
This means, any lodgements made in other States destined for Victoria may be held in those States for up to 3 business days to allow Victoria to work through the present demand.
