Delivery Terms & FAQ

IMPORTANT: Please take the time to carefully read all Delivery Terms and Delivery FAQs and watch the video further below (from one of our suppliers) to ensure there are no hidden surprises with your order or delivery. Please note we will not be held responsible for any issues with delivery due to customers making ordering mistakes or not reading our terms and FAQ prior to ordering. 

Fast Shipping

We aim to offer the fastest possible shipping service within Australia. From the time you place your order, our team will be working tirelessly to have your products dispatched as promptly as possible. We work collectively with the most efficient courier services in Australia to have your product delivered to you within a reasonable timeframe.

We only ship within Australia, not internationally.

We are strictly unable to reserve stock until an order has been paid for and finalised. For larger items like fridges, we make use of our suppliers' Australian warehouses to facilitate transportation and minimise expenses, allowing us to offer you cost savings.

Shipping Costs

Shipping costs for smaller items are automatically calculated during the order checkout process based on your order's weight and delivery destination. In the case of larger items, shipping costs are typically calculated and invoiced after placing your order. These costs are determined by the delivery service, weight/volume, and delivery destination, and this information will be provided at the shipping stage of the order checkout.

If you require a shipping cost before placing your order please see our Request a Quote page.

It's important to be aware that rural addresses, or addresses requiring barge or off-mainland access, such as islands, or those with unforeseen delivery hazards like steep driveways or locations not on ground level, may incur additional costs from our couriers that are not initially shown at the checkout. Once we identify that your address falls into one of these categories, we will promptly reach out to inform you of any additional charges.

Additionally, please note that while some products may indicate "free shipping" on Google Shopping, they may still be subject to a shipping quote or cost during the checkout process or after order completion on our website. This discrepancy is due to the limited software syncing capabilities offered by Google Shopping.

Transport Companies & Services

    Orders may be shipped via a variety of transport companies including Australia Post, StarTrack, First Express, Couriers Please, Air Road, FedEx, Toll, TNT, SeaRoad, Big Post and Cope Sensitive Freight.

    • All courier services are registered and trackable with a signature on delivery and include transit cover.
    • We will provide you with tracking information as soon as your order is dispatched from our warehouse or a supplier's warehouse.
    • All deliveries by default are a standard kerbside/door-to-door commercial address service and will only be unloaded onto a loading bay or placed outside of your premises. Standard deliveries will not be taken through doors, inside buildings and most certainly not up/down any flights of stairs or ramps.
    • If you have any special delivery requirements other than our standard kerbside/door-to-door service (including delivery to residential addresses for larger items), then please email us at info@commercialequipmentonline.com.au with your detailed requirements.

    • If you require anything other than a standard drop-off to your front door or loading bay, please contact us.
    • For larger items such as fridges, we advise our couriers to contact you before delivery and before the driver is expected to arrive at your premises. This helps to minimise any issues with delivery because if a redelivery is required then additional costs will be incurred. 
    • If you are not at the location at the time of delivery, or 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 may be charged a re-delivery fee or a futile pick up fee. However, some smaller products may be sent to the local post office or a courier depot for collection and will not redeliver.

    Order Collection

    Commercial Equipment Online is primarily an online business that utilizes multiple suppliers and third-party warehouses around the country. Therefore collections can not be arranged for larger items.

    Some smaller items may be available to collect from our Seventeen Mile Rocks, Brisbane warehouse and if interested in picking up an order please email us.

    Delivery Times

    When your order has been processed and payment received, your order will usually be dispatched within 1-3 business days (please note: we are not open on weekends).

    We deliver Monday to Friday and during regular business hours only. Please see the below approximate delivery times after your order has been shipped from our warehouse or our supplier's warehouse:

    2-5 business days for metro Brisbane, Sydney & Melbourne
    2-7 business days for Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Northern Rivers, Adelaide, Wollongong and Newcastle
    5-10 business days for Perth and Hobart
    5-14 business days for all other regions

    Delivery times are expected but not guaranteed by couriers or suppliers. Delays may occur due to COVID-19-related delays, and occasionally due to a supplier's warehousing backlog. 

    If you have any questions please contact our friendly customer support at info@commercialequipmentonline.com.au=

    Missing, Faulty or Damaged Items

    If your order has any items that are missing or that arrive damaged or faulty, please notify us strictly within 24 hours of delivery. Failure to contact us within 24 hours may result in us not being able to assist your missing, faulty or damaged items, as our suppliers require us to contact them within this time frame, and in turn, they are required to contact their transport and insurance companies within a certain time frame. Please see more information about orders received damaged in the Delivery FAQs below.

    Please email info@commercialequipmentonline.com.au with your order details including detailed photos or videos of the product and packaging, so we can promptly address the issue. 

    As an online retailer, most returns need to be sent to our supplier's warehouse. It's important not to dispose of the product packaging and to keep it intact, as this may be required for proof of damage or to return the damaged product.

    Delivery FAQ

    Will I be able to fit the item through my door and into its final position?

    THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! Please don't assume a new appliance will just simply fit in your intended final position because the old one did. Check and double-check both the item dimensions and the packed dimensions to ensure it will fit in your desired location. Please watch the video below from Nisbets, one of our suppliers.

    Can I schedule a delivery date and time?

    Larger items and orders are predominantly shipped directly from our supplier's warehouse, which helps to reduce delivery costs as there is no double handling of freight and our suppliers have more favourable shipping rates. Delivery dates for your order are subject to the supplier's and courier's schedules and are usually out of our control.

    If you require a more accurate delivery date/time, we ask that you please contact the courier directly once we have provided you with your tracking details. Alternatively, please contact us prior to ordering so we can request quotes from private couriers who can meet more specific delivery requirements.

    Can the courier bring the appliance inside my shop or kitchen?
    • Standard (kerbside/door-to-door) deliveries will be unloaded into a loading bay or placed outside of your premises only.
    • Standard deliveries will not be taken inside the building and most certainly not up any flights of stairs, or on the other side of the counter.
    • If you require anything other than a standard drop-off to your front door or loading bay, please contact us prior to ordering and we will endeavour to find a delivery solution at a reasonable price to accommodate your needs.

    • Most of our couriers will not confirm an exact date or time of arrival and expect you to be at the premises from 9am - 5pm ready for delivery. You can keep an eye on your tracking details so you have an idea of when your order will be delivered. For larger items, we always advise our suppliers to inform their couriers to call you before delivery to minimise any delivery issues, however, this is not guaranteed. If a phone call is required prior to delivery, then this can only be attained by us utilising private couriers, at a higher cost. Please contact us if this is required. 

    Can the courier remove old units or packaging from the new appliance?
    In order to keep your delivery costs down, our standard deliveries include a kerbside door-to-door (commercial address) service that involves only dropping the item off at your front door. Additional charges will be incurred if the courier is required to remove any packaging, old appliances, or perform additional work, and this extra work must be requested prior to placing your order so we can accurately quote you for this, otherwise, the driver delivering your goods may not be able to help you.

    If you require in-store delivery, removal of old appliances, removal of packaging or a specific delivery date/time, please contact us so that we can provide you with quotes from private couriers who can accommodate your specific requirements.
    What happens if the item arrives damaged?

    We ONLY have a 24-hour window to make a freight warranty claim, this is due to our suppliers and courier's Terms & Conditions.

    • PLEASE inspect all deliveries for damages immediately upon receipt.
    • If there is any visible damage, please REJECT the delivery and the courier will return it back to the warehouse of origin. This is the fastest and easiest way for us to arrange a replacement.
    • Shipping damages MUST be reported within 24 hours of receiving your order, with no exceptions. If you report any damage beyond 24 hours we will not be able to arrange a replacement or compensation. This is due to couriers simply denying/rejecting any claims when received more than 24 hours after delivery. Once received, please check immediately, 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.

    • Every order is inspected by warehouse staff prior to being loaded onto a truck for delivery, so it's unlikely an order is ever damaged other than in transit. Occasionally items can move around and become damaged in transit, be damaged by a forklift, or be damaged at the courier depot. 

    • It's the customer's responsibility to check goods for damage and document any damages strictly within 24 hours, with no exceptions.

    Do I need to keep the packaging from my order?

    Yes please keep the packaging from your order for at least 1-2 weeks and do not dispose of it immediately. If a return request is required, our suppliers will not accept any items back if there is no packaging or if the packaging has been damaged.

    What if I purchase more than one product in the same order?
    All products from an order will not always be delivered together or on the same day. As we offer many different products from different suppliers, it is common for products from the same order to arrive at different times or on different days.

    In this case, our support team will contact you and provide an individual tracking number for each product or supplier.

    If you have any special delivery requirements please contact us at info@commercialequipmentonline.com.au prior to placing your order. Please note that there will be extra costs associated with special delivery requirements.
    Do I have to be present to accept delivery?
    Yes, the delivery needs to be signed for and we don't offer Authority to Leave.

    For smaller items that are sent with Australia Post, 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 post office for collection. Australia Post will also not be able to change any delivery information, including the delivery address, once the item has been dispatched.
    Where do we deliver?
    We only ship within Australia, not internationally.
    How much does shipping cost?

    Shipping costs for smaller items are automatically calculated during the order checkout process based on your order's weight and delivery destination. In the case of larger items, shipping costs are typically calculated and invoiced after placing your order. These costs are determined by the delivery service, weight/volume, and delivery destination, and this information will be provided at the shipping stage of the order checkout.

    Which courier companies do we use?

    We use a variety of reliable and cost-effective couriers including Australia Post, StarTrack, First Express, Couriers Please, Air Road, FedEx, Toll, TNT, SeaRoad, Big Post and Cope Sensitive Freight. We endeavour to consistently offer the best value shipping rates in Australia.

    All deliveries by default are a standard kerbside/door-to-door (commercial address) service and will only be unloaded onto a loading bay or placed outside of your premises. Standard deliveries will not be taken through doors, inside buildings and most certainly not up/down any flights of stairs or ramps.

    We will provide you with tracking information as soon as your order is dispatched from our warehouse or from a supplier's warehouse.

    Will I receive a notification before delivery?

    You will receive an email notification with tracking details once your order has been dispatched so you can keep an eye on your delivery.

    For larger items such as fridges, we advise our couriers to contact you before delivery and before the driver is expected to arrive at your premises. This helps to minimise any issues with delivery because if a redelivery is required then additional costs will be incurred by you. 

    For small to medium item deliveries (items under 23kg) that are sent with Australia Post or StarTrack, you will not be phoned prior to delivery but will receive tracking updates via email.

    Can items be collected?
    Products may be available for pick up however, please take note of the following:
    1. We are primarily an online business that utilizes multiple suppliers and third-party warehouses around the country. However, we do have our own Brisbane-based warehouse and if requested we can organise items to be collected.
    2. Collection from our Brisbane-based warehouse may be automatically offered on smaller products at the online order checkout.
    What happens if I change my mind after I have placed my order?
