Have your delivery timings changed due to Covid-19?
Serving the needs of customers are our highest priority and your health & safety remains of upmost importance.
We are an online store therefore will continue to be OPEN for business and will continue our normal trading hours. Delivery of our baby gifts will also continue within the timeframes outlined here. We would, however, ask customers to reconsider Hospital deliveries and recommend sending to home addresses to avoid delays.
We are monitoring all of the latest developments and taking the necessary precautions, such as increasing quality control and hygiene measures within our packing and dispatch teams
How long does delivery take?
Our Courier deliveries to metro areas in Australia are normally made next day however we estimate 1-3 working days in case of transit and flight delays. For delivery addresses in regional or remote areas please allow an additional 2-3 business working days. Our delivery time frames are based on Business working days (i.e. Monday to Friday)
How much is delivery?
We charge $10.95 delivery via Startrack Premium Courier Service in Australia. If your order is under $25 then the delivery charge will be only $8.00.
Some of our baby gift hampers include free delivery. These gift boxes are located in the Free Delivery Gift Box Category .
Do you deliver to Hospitals?
Yes, we deliver to hospitals providing you are 100% sure that mother and baby will still be at the hospital within our delivery time frame. We often experience issues with hospital deliveries because the patient has been discharged or their name is different. To avoid delays or extra re-direction charges we would ask you to reconsider Hospital deliveries and recommend sending to home addresses.
If you prefer to send to a hospital, then please check that the gift recipient will still be in hospital during our delivery time frames. If possible, please provide us with the registered mother’s full name, room number, and ward. If the recipient is discharged on the scheduled day for delivery a re-direction fee to her home may be charged to you. Therefore, if you are not sure how long mother and baby will be staying in hospital we recommend you address the gift box to their home address instead. Please note that we do not send gifts to the following hospitals - John Hunter Hospital, Lookout Rd, New Lambton Heights NSW 2305 and Mercy Hospital 163 Studley Rd, Heidelberg VIC 3084.
Can I request same day delivery?
We are currently not offering a same day delivery service in Melbourne. We will review the service again in the near future.
Can I request a specific delivery date and time?
Requests for delivery on specific days cannot be guaranteed, however we always try our best to aim for delivery on the requested date. Again you can mention these requests in the ‘Special Instruction’ box during your order checkout process.
Will the driver call the number on my order before delivery?
We may call the recipients number prior to dispatching your order to check their delivery address or to obtain any further instructions needed to assist the courier driver. On some occasions the courier driver may hold a work phone and need to call the recipient if they are experiencing issues. However, they will not call if no one is home; in this instance the box is either left in a safe place or taken to their local post office for collection.
Can I provide authority to leave?
Yes, you can leave an ATL request. If the recipient is not home and there is a suitable place to leave the gift, the courier will leave the parcel at their property. If you have any special delivery instructions such as where the parcel can be left safely, then please inform us in the ‘Special Instruction’ box during your order checkout process or you may send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org .
Am I able to pick up my order?
Yes, you can choose to pick up your order from our warehouse in Carrum Downs 3201. Prior to placing your order please call us first to arrange a collection time, our number is 03 9782 1374
What happens if no one is home upon delivery?
If the recipient is not home and there is a suitable place to leave the gift, the courier will leave the parcel at their property. Otherwise, the courier driver will leave a calling card in their mailbox and take the box to their local post office for collection.
Can I change the address after it has been dispatched?
Once your order has been dispatched we are not able to stop the delivery. We can try to inform the courier company if it is going to an incorrect address. However, these changes may issue a $16.50 re-delivery fee. Please note any changes to an address, re-delivery or re-direction can have a turnaround time of up to 3 days due to the processing systems of Startrack/Australia Post.
What happens if the recipients address is incorrect or they have moved?
If the parcel is still in transit we will contact the courier and arrange for a re-direction of the parcel. This may incur an additional $16.50 delivery fee, and redirection can take up to three business days. If the parcel is on board for delivery, we will not be able to intercept the delivery.
Do you deliver internationally?
We are not delivering gift boxes overseas at this time. Current customs restrictions have made it difficult for us to send our gifts overseas, therefore for this reason, we have decided to only offer deliveries within Australia.
Do you delivery on weekends or public holidays?
Our delivery time frames are based on Business working days (i.e. Monday to Friday) - our couriers do not deliver on Weekends or Public Holidays.
