**Please note, Australia Post have advised Express Post remains the fastest postal service, but the next-business-day guarantee is currently suspended.
This change is necessary due to:
- COVID-19 health and safety regulations applying to workplaces
- fewer passenger flights (which we usually rely upon to carry many of our parcels)
- ongoing COVID-19 disruptions
They will reinstate the next-business-day guarantee as soon as they can.
The Home Maven currently ships Australia wide. We currently do not offer international shipping.
We use Australia Post to ship all orders.
Please note, Australia Post is currently experiencing significant delivery delays due to the high volume of parcels in the network, extended Covid-19 restrictions and limited flights. Please see below link for delivery times for each state and territory.
We cannot guarantee the quality or the timeframe of the delivery services of any third-party service providers. However, we will be responsible for resolving any issues with our delivery providers should they arise.
At certain times of the year, we have items available for pre-order. They will have an estimated arrival date into the warehouse, which may be earlier or later than anticipated.
Please note, any order that has a pre-order item and an in-stock item in it, will not be shipped until the pre-order item has arrived.
If you would like the in-stock item delivered immediately, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, to arrange shipping. Please note, there will be an invoiced fee of $8.95 to have the item shipped.
If you have any special shipping instructions, such as ‘Authority to Leave’ please provide details in the order notes box provided at the bottom of your cart page.
Customer will need to be available at the delivery address to receive their order unless ‘Authority to Leave’ is stated in the order notes box. If customer or representative is not available, re-delivery or pick up from courier depot (or local post office if Australia Post delivery) will need to be arranged directly between customer and courier.
Parcels may be left unattended at the delivery address when marked 'Authority to Leave' if the delivery provider deems it safe to do so. The Home Maven holds no responsibility for goods left unattended at a delivery address when the parcel is marked 'Authority to Leave'.
Please ensure you enter the correct shipping address. If we have got the delivery address wrong we will refund or replace your purchase. If you have got it wrong, then we do not take responsibility for delivery addresses that are provided to us incorrectly.
