Information about unclaimed packages & delivery schedules

For items packed under 90cm, we use Australia Post and Parcel 2 Couriers. For large scale art over 90cm, we use DHL and Pack & Send Couriers. In the event that the item is a missed delivery, couriers will make three attempts to deliver to your address and you will be sent an email link to pick up the items if you're not available to take the delivery or; to schedule a delivery at your preference which is the receivers responsibility to arrange and manage.

If you miss all delivery times and do not contact the courier, couriers will reroute the item back to our parcel point in Victoria within 7-10 business days of the last missed delivery. If the parcel is undelivered, re-delivery is at your own cost and we can create a new booking and invoice to redeliver your item.
