Delivery / Authority To Leave

All orders are delivered between 9am and 5pm on business days. In some cases, courier service may deliver parcel outside of these hours

All packages delivered by courier need to be signed for in order to accept the package. Should an ATL (Authority to Leave) be stated on the purchase notes by the buyer then the buyer accepts all responsibility for missing packages left by the courier.

At the time of order you will be required to provide a contact phone number, which may be used by the courier to arrange delivery. Noting:

  • Your order will be delivered to the delivery address provided by you. Please double check your delivery information to ensure it is correct. To ensure the fastest delivery and to avoid non-delivery we strongly recommend using a business address as your shipping address.
  • Please note courier services are not able to deliver to PO Box addresses and therefore we may not be able to service orders with PO Box addresses.

Once the order leaves, we cannot be held liable for any lost, missing or damaged goods or parcels. Any such event should be disputed by the customer directly with the courier company. Risk passes to the customer once the goods are consigned to the courier.

 

Undelivered Orders

If you are not available at the time of delivery – Our delivery partner may leave a card at the address. You may need to contact the courier company to arrange for re-delivery or they may indicate an address where your parcel can be picked up.

Noting:

  • If a pickup address is given, it will be the customer’s responsibility to pick the order up.  The customer has 5 days to do so before the order is automatically re-directed back.
  • If Babies.com.au and our delivery partners are unable to finally deliver your order due to your error or fault after 21 days or 3 attempts (whichever is sooner), Babies.com.au reserves the right to cancel your order. In these circumstances we will refund you the price of your order, less the delivery fees incurred by us. If multiple attempts have been made to deliver your parcel, additional costs may be incurred.
  • A Signature may be required at point of delivery – Anyone at the delivery address who receives the goods and provides a signature will be presumed by Babies.com.au to be authorised to receive the goods.
  • An ‘authority to leave’ can be granted to the delivery partner to leave your parcel at the shipping address without a signature in the event that no one is available at the delivery address to accept the order. Please note that if ‘authority to leave’ has been requested by a customer, the delivery driver can at his or her discretion decide not to leave the order unattended if they feel it unwise to do so.
  • “Authority to leave” and instructions for the delivery driver to leave your order in a secure place – Babies.com.au accepts no liability for orders not received by a customer where an ‘authority to leave’ was granted.
