3. Shipment Locations
3.1. Domestic Only
Essential 4x4 Pty Ltd does not ship internationally at this time. We ship domestic only - anywhere in Australia.
4. Shipment rates and delivery estimates
We endeavor to get your order to you as soon as possible. Once your order is placed, an estimated delivery time will be provided to you. Delivery times are estimates and commence from the date of shipment, rather than the date of order. Delivery times are to be used as a guide only and are subject to the acceptance and approval of your order. Estimated arrival dates are not guaranteed. Weather delays and other unforeseen circumstances may impact delivery time. Unless there are exceptional circumstances, we make every effort to fulfil your order.
(i) Business day means Monday to Friday, except holidays.
(ii) Date of delivery may vary due to carrier shipping practices, delivery location, method of delivery, and the items ordered.
(iii) Products may be delivered in separate shipments.
(iv) Due to energy blackouts, lockouts, strikes, lockdowns, pandemics or natural disasters, packages to and from our facility in 54 The Parade, Warehouse 1, Norwood, South Australia, 5067 may be delayed. We appreciate your patience during this time.
(v) We will not be responsible for wrong shipping address if you provide incorrect information.
5. Tracking Options
Essential 4x4 Pty Ltd aims to provide visibility and transparency throughout the shipment process. Once your order is confirmed and shipped, you will receive a link to track your package.
5.1. Domestic and International
All orders delivered within Australia automatically have tracking.
International orders are sent with DHL. This service comes with tracking and your tracking number will be sent to you once it has been posted. If we are requested to make alternative shipping arrangements we cannot guarantee tracking and will not be responsible for the delivery of orders sent internationally.
6. International Customs, Duties and Taxes
All orders shipping to a destination outside of Australia are subject to the import duties, fees, and taxes of the destination country. Delays in delivery may occur if your package is randomly selected by your country’s Customs Department. Essential 4x4 Pty Ltd is not responsible for any possible customs and taxes applied to your order. We have no control over the process or additional charges associated with the delivery and importation of your order (package) into your country. We do not benefit in anyway from these chargers and we work very closely with our brokers and carriers to ensure as few delays as possible. All fees imposed during or after shipping are the responsibility of the customer. You agree that you are responsible for any duty, taxes, and custom requirements or other like taxes, fees, levies, costs or expenses associated with importing products you purchase from us and shipping them internationally.
If there is any damage to the packaging on delivery, contact us immediately at email@example.com.
8. Missing or Lost Package
There are several reasons why a package gets lost or becomes a deliver exception. We’ve found that, more often that not, the package is either in the building or with a neighbour. Essential 4x4 Pty Ltd politely requests that customers look in common courier hiding spots. Please take a look around and let us know if you find it. If you haven't located your order, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to report missing or lost packages.
If you have any questions about the delivery and shipment of your order, please contact us at email@example.com.
