Please note, as we have entered the busiest period of the year, leading up to Christmas/New Year, all couriers are very busy delivering the country's orders around the clock.
This means your delivery time may take longer than usual and we request that all customers keep this in mind when placing new orders. We strongly recommend you to allow for up to an additional week on top of the delivery periods listed below for your deliveries. If you require a specific delivery date, then we recommend selecting the option for a Premium delivery service so that we can book a specific delivery date.
We deliver Monday to Friday, during regular business hours.
After your order has been shipped from our suppliers warehouses,
delivery times are approximately:
3-5 business days for metro Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane
3-7 business days for Adelaide, Gold Coast, Wollongong and Newcastle
5-10 business days for Perth
7-14 business days for all other regions
Delivery dates are not guaranteed and subject to courier availability. Please allow for up to 5 additional business days. More information
Standard deliveries are Kerbside Drop-off (Door-to-Door) only (not delivered inside your premises)- Standard deliveries do not allow delivery date/time reservations
- Please Read our Delivery Information page for more details and common delivery FAQ's
- If you require In-Store Delivery (Premium Delivery Service), removal of old appliances, removal of packaging or a specific day/time for delivery, please complete this form so that we can arrange a private courier.
Once you’ve completed your purchase, our system will process your order and send you an email to confirm we have received your information. In the unlikely event that we have to change anything about your order, we'll be in touch asap.
Your tracking number will be sent a couple days after your order has been processed and you will be able to self-monitor your delivery on the courier's website. If you need any assistance, you can always call or email us for support
We request all couriers to call you the day before delivery to arrange an approximate delivery window. We use private couriers for all deliveries including TNT, StarTrack, Cope Sensitive Freight, AirRoad and others, depending on the items and your location.
If you require removal of old appliances, setup or connection of fridges, dishwashers, combi ovens, gas equipment or even grease traps, we have service partners who offer installation services. For a quick quote, please complete the Appliance Installation Form For more info please visit our delivery information page.
Will the courier call me before delivery?
We request couriers for every order to contact you 24 hours before delivery as well as 1 hour before when the driver is on his way to your premises. Large item deliveries such as fridges will never be delivered without prior contact between you and the courier because the they do not want to turn up at your premises to find no one there to accept the delivery.
Small item deliveries (for items under 45kg) sent with StarTrack will not contact you prior to delivery. This is the same as any other delivery using the Australia Post/StarTrack Network
Can I book a delivery date/time?
In order to keep your delivery costs down, 99.9% of orders are shipped through our suppliers, to leverage their favorable delivery rates. Delivery dates are subject to the courier's schedules and out of our control.
For this reason, if you want to get a more accurate estimated time of arrival for your order, we ask that you contact the courier directly once we have provided the tracking number.
If you need delivery on a specific date/time, we strongly request that you complete the In-Store Delivery Form so that we can request and provide you with quotes from private couriers, who can accommodate your requirements.
Which Couriers do we use?
We use couriers that are reliable, convenient and cost-effective, including Auspost, Toll, TNT, SeaRoad, Couriers Please and Cope Sensitive Freight. We are confident that we offer the best value shipping rates in Australia.
Our standard deliveries include a door-to-door service, so please ensure that there will be someone available at the nominated delivery address to sign for your items and receive the delivery. If there is no one to sign for the items upon delivery or if you refuse to sign for any reason (aside from visible transit damages), you will be charged a re-delivery fee.
For most small item deliveries (Under 45kg), StarTrack or TNT Express will be used
We will send you the tracking information as soon as we receive it from our supplier, once they have shipped your order
Will the item fit through my door and into the final position?
Please don't assume a new appliance will fit simply because the old one did. Check both the item dimensions and the packed dimensions to ensure it will fit in your desired location. It sounds obvious, but if we had a dollar for every time a fridge didn't fit through the door... We'd be at least $37 wealthier this year!
Can the courier remove old units or packaging from the new appliance?
In order to keep your delivery charges minimal, our standard delivery service only drops the item off at your front door. As soon as the courier is required to remove old packaging, old appliances or any additional manual work, they will charge a fee for this.
If you require In-Store Delivery, removal of old appliances, removal of packaging or a specific day/time for delivery, please complete this form so that we can request and provide you with quotes from private couriers, who can accommodate your requirements.
Can you bring the appliance inside my shop or kitchen?
- Standard (kerbside/Door-to-Door) Deliveries are made to the outside of your premises or a loading bay only.
- Standard deliveries are not made to the inside of the building and certainly not up to level 10 and on the other side of the counter.
If you require anything other than a standard drop off to your front door or loading bay, contact us.
We won't sting you and we will find a delivery solution.
If you are ordering more than one large pieces of equipment, especially if they are from different brands, we strongly recommend that you let us arrange a private courier to deliver everything in one go, at a convenient time for you.
Standard deliveries are cheap for a reason, they will not confirm an exact date or time of arrival and expect you to be there from 9am - 5pm. Even though we always instruct the courier to call you an hour before delivery, we all prefer certainty and this is achieved by using private drivers.
What happens if the item arrives damaged?
We have a 24 hour window to make a freight warranty claim. Don't say we didn't warn you.
- PLEASE inspect all deliveries for damages as soon as they are received.
- If you notice any visible damage on the box of your item, please REJECT the delivery and the courier will take it back to the warehouse of origin. This is the fastest way for us to arrange a replacement.
- Shipping damages MUST be reported within 24 hours of receiving your order. If you let us know beyond that, we will be unable to arrange any replacements or compensation. This is because couriers will simply deny/reject any claims when received more than 24 hours after delivery. Once received, please check right away, don't leave it for a week or a month or more!
Our deliveries are insured but couriers are very strict and inflexible when claims are made outside of their policy window
Our warehouse teams check every single order before they are loaded onto the truck
Although it's rare, sometimes items move around in transit and inside courier depos and damages can occur
We rely on you, as the receiver to check goods and document any damages
Do I need to keep the packaging from my order?
Please do not dispose of the packaging right after your item has been received. In case of a return request, our suppliers will not accept any items back if there is no packaging or if the packaging has been damaged. After you have checked the items within 24 hours of receiving the delivery (for any shipping damages), please keep the packaging for another week until you have thoroughly tested the equipment.
What happens if I change my mind after I have placed my order?
For more detailed information about returns, please read our Returns Information page
We never like to charge restocking (or other) fees however if we get charged by our suppliers or couriers due to your change of mind, we have no choice but to pass the fees onto you.
It's common sense stuff:
- If you change your mind about an order before it has left our suppliers warehouse, there will generally be no fee.
- If you change your mind about an order after it's left the warehouse and we have to stop it mid delivery and re-route it back to the suppliers warehouse, there will be a fee.
If the couriers have to make multiple attempts to deliver your goods because no one is there to receive them, there will be a redelivery fee.
If you forget to tell us about those 7 stairs leading down to the kitchen then demand the courier to take it down anyway, there will be a fee.
If you refuse to pay extra for those extra stairs and the courier is forced to take the goods back to the warehouse, there will be a fee.
If you return equipment on the basis that it is faulty and it is found to be not faulty, there will be a fee.
How much does shipping cost?To calculate standard delivery costs, please navigate to your desired product page on our website and enter your postcode or suburb into the delivery estimator. To calculate In-Store delivery costs, including any old appliance or packaging removal, please complete the In-Store Delivery Form or contact us via email@example.com
Shipping costs are calculated based on the delivery service, weight and volume of the total order and the delivery destination.
Please note that for international addresses or those that require barge or off-mainland access, such as islands, there will be extra costs not shown at checkout. As soon as we detect that your address is not on the mainland or not on the ground level, we will be in contact to discuss additional costs.
Where can we deliver to?We deliver all our products Australia-wide. We can also arrange any and all products to be delivered anywhere in the world. If you are outside of Australia and would like to place an order, please Contact Us so that we can best assist you.
What if there is more than one product on my order?We always endeavor to combine shipping or try our best to get delivery together on a single day/time. However we offer many different brands from many different suppliers, whose warehouses are located all over the country (and not to mention the challenges of stock availability at present).
If your order includes items coming from different brands and suppliers, these items will be shipped independently and will likely arrive separately. In this case, our support team will be in contact with you and will provide each individual tracking number.
If you have special delivery requirements, would like to ensure all items are delivered together or would like to delay delivery of some or all products, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will contact you to arrange everything. Please note that there may be some extra costs for some special delivery requirements.
Do I have to be at work or home to receive my order?Yes! Due to an increase in theft and credit card fraud over the past couple of years, we do not permit Authority to leave items unattended unless there are special circumstances, such as very rural/remote deliveries.
We understand that this is inconvenient for some however 99% of our customers are small and medium businesses which accept deliveries during regular business hours.
For smaller items that are sent with Australia Post or Star Track, if you are not available to accept delivery, the driver will leave a card at your premises and your order will be taken to the nearest collection center for you to collect. TNT & Australia Post will also not be able to change any delivery information, including the delivery address or add an Authority to Leave, once the item has been dispatched.
Can my order be delivered on the same day I purchase it?Sometimes yes - Depending on your location, the location of the stock and the time of your purchase, REO can arrange for same day delivery. If you require an item urgently, it’s best to call us directly to get everything arranged. Please note that there will be an additional fee for this service and website delivery prices may not apply.
Can items be collected?Yes products can be picked up however please take note of the following:
- REO is primarily an online business which utilizes multiple supplier and 3PL warehouses around the country. Therefore collections from one of our partner warehouses MUST be pre-arranged so that we can get your order ready. You cannot simply arrive and collect without prior arrangement.
- After your order is placed, we need to arrange the collection with our suppliers and their warehouses. This takes time. Please do not go to a supplier's warehouse before we have provided a collection number and a collection window or else you will not be able to collect your items.
You must check the 'package dimensions' of the product(s) purchased to ensure they will fit in or on your vehicle.
Any damages which occur in transportation (by You) such as refrigeration gas leaks and/or breakages are not covered under the standard warranty and the subsequent repair costs will not be borne by REO.
