Shipping Terms and Conditions
Domestic (Australia) Shipping
We DO NOT guarantee shipping to destinations in Australia unless you choose to add Signature on Delivery.
All deliveries are in accordance with Australia Post’s terms and conditions.
It is up to you to allow enough time for your package to arrive.
We will dispatch your order within 48 hours of receiving it, although usually we do this within 24 hours, and often quicker. Due to circumstances beyond our control (flooding etc), there might be a longer delay in despatch but we will notify you if this is the case.
However! In 99.9% of the cases in our experience, Express Post delivers from despatch in Northern NSW to Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane within 24 hours (Sydney) and 24-48 hours Brisbane and Melbourne. Most other major metro and regional (e.g. Bendigo) areas receive our Express packages within 3 days.
This section covers the below items. It is very important that you read this.
If you have a problem with a delivery, please contact us before doing anything, so we can work with you to sort it out!
- Shipping guarantee (delivery)
- Shipping time frames
- The extent of our responsibility for your package
Our packages are shipped internationally on the following basis.
- We do not guarantee shipping (delivery time or delivery) to international destinations from Australia.
- All packages are shipped using Australia Post – we do not offer FedEx or UPS as there are no outlets within 100km (sorry!).
- In general, we ship internationally with Australia Post Parcel service which has a 6+ business day delivery.
- If you need it faster, choose International Express. Yes it’s expensive and Australia Post should be castigated for their ridiculous rates.
- Be aware international customs and your local postal service can play a role in delaying packages, and we cannot control, nor take responsibility for, delays caused by international customs nor postage delays by your local postal service.
- Therefore, the extent of our liability ends at Australian borders.
- We ship with tracking numbers that allow Australia Post to track packages to international destinations (usually at a worst case to inbound customs points). For example, from Australia to the USA, Aus Post can track to arrival at LAX.
- If however, local postal services (USPS for example) do not scan the package–and they are under no obligation to do so–we are unable to track your package internally within your country.
- In the event that your package doesn’t arrive, we will endeavour to do our best to track your package and obtain recompense, but cannot take responsibility for lost packages outside Australia. By accepting these terms you release us from all liability for lost packages and indemnify Velonomad and Tim Marsh from claims or chargebacks or credit card disputes for non-delivered packages.
- Further, you commit that you will not dispute a credit card charge related to a lost package or package that arrives either a) your departure date, b) your preferred date or on a date that you consider inconvenient.
- We do not guarantee delivery times outside Australia but take the greatest care in ensuring your package is delivered as quickly as possible.
- You agree to release us from responsibility for ensuring your package is delivered on time, as we are bound by Australia Post and international carriers’ delivery time frames.
Now that the nasty stuff is out of the way, here’s a summary:
- If you want a guaranteed delivery option, please choose a signature on delivery option at checkout. This ensures someone signs for it, and gives us complete visibility.
- If you want something faster, choose the International Express option (AUD$42 for SIMs). There’s no guarantee on delivery times, or insurance, or tracking (this depends on your postal service scanning it: sometimes they do, sometimes not), but most packages (i.e. 99% in our experience) are delivered in about 5 calendar days. Again, we can’t take responsibility or liability for delays or lost packages.
All packages must be returned by prior agreement. That is, we can’t accept a package returned by the customer without prior agreement.
If your SIM arrives after the date you wanted it, we will accept its return, and refund your money, minus a 20% restocking fee (this is standard practice). Return shipping will be at your cost.
All return SIMs must be shipped registered and insured.
Remember, the SIM credit does not expire, so you can keep for your next trip, or sell on ebay, or, of course, return to us, subject to the conditions above.
Faulty SIMs will be subject to a full and complete refund of all your costs and shipping.
