Shipping & Delivery

Victoria - Level 4 Lockdown Update

As you’re all aware the borders into Queensland and Victoria are heavily restricted, resulting in long delays getting into these states. And with Level 4 lockdown in Victoria, only essential services are operating, and all delivers have to be contactless. There are also no flights across to Western Australia from New Zealand, so parcels are now trucked out each day from Sydney. With this in mind please expect a delay in your order arriving, it won’t be the super-speedy delivery you’re used to from us, due to these delays. We’ll still get it to you, it just might take a bit longer ❤ Our partners and their teams are working hard to get them delivered as quickly as possible under the circumstances. Any concerns or queries on your individual order, please check the tracking link sent to you once your order was dispatched.

This is calculated AT THE CHECKOUT, based on what you've put in your card, whether there are any exclusions and what discounts apply. Please see below for exclusions.

Make sure when you place an order you do so through your account - not as a guest. Guest accounts don't get points, purchase history and the ability to log in to check your courier tracking. If you have an order placed you can check on it's delivery status through your account page after you log in. Just click the "My Orders" tab to get order progress info as well as tracking details if it has been dispatched.

All orders will receive a Shipping notification email which contains your courier tracking details. This gets sent to your inbox at the point at which your order is checked out and ready for the courier to collect from our warehouse.If you can't find the email, log in to your account and check there - as mentioned above.

 


In Stock, Ready to Ship!

 

You can be confident that what you order from us is available for us to dispatch immediately from our Auckland warehouse.

If an item is available on our website to order then it's on our shelves, in our warehouse and ready to send to you.

The exceptions to 'In Stock, Ready to Ship' are items that you order in a custom size or that are clearly 'Pre-Order' or 'Notify Me'. If an item is out of stock, you can use the 'Notify Me' feature to be emailed when the item is back in stock.

On the very rare occasions we come across a damaged or incorrectly counted item of stock when we come to pick your order for dispatch, we'll be in touch, let you know what's going on and work out a solution with you.


Delivery Times

 

We dispatch every weekday to Australia and orders are usually dispatched within one business day of the order being placed.

Delivery time-frame with Omni/Aus are approx 7 – 10 working days.

Please allow an extra 1-2 days for delivery after a public holiday, as there is always a large back-log with both The Sleep Store orders and courier companies. Major promotions can also result in a short delay due to higher order numbers for our team to process.

However please note we cannot guarantee these times. It is important to remember that we are shipping internationally and delays may occur due to flights between New Zealand and Australia, customs and the local courier services or Aus Post in Australia.

More information

 

Which Courier Do We Use?

We use Toll Priority and Omni / Australia Post for our shipping to Australia. Most packages go with the quicker Toll Priority service, however we may need to ship your order with the Omni service if it is heavy or bulky as these are too expensive to ship with Toll.

Signature Required Service versus Authority to Leave

All orders, sent with Toll, under $300 will be sent with an Authority to Leave sticker unless Signature required is noted on the delivery instructions in your order. However, if the order is sent to a Business Address a Signature will be required and any orders over $300 will be sent with Signature required.

Note: All orders sent with Omni/Aus post will require a signature only.

Theft or Dog Issues

If you have had issues with packages or mail being stolen, please let us know so your order is not left without your signature. Please ensure you advise us if you have a dog who could access a package left by the door so we can ensure it is only sent signature required. Sounds crazy but we have had a few packages eaten over the years!

Large or heavy orders

These are generally sent with our slower Omni / Australia Post service. please allow at least 10 working days. Please contact us before placing your order if you have questions

PO Boxes & Parcel Lockers

Any order going to a PO Box or Parcel Locker will be sent with Omni or Australia Post

Urgent Orders

If your order is particularly urgent, please contact us to discuss what is possible and note this on your order. We will do what we can but can't make promises for deliveries outside the timing guidelines above. Alternative shipping may be available through express services such as Fedex however these would usually cost at least 3 times our normal shipping and delivery can still not be gauranteed within a specific time.


Tracking Courier Packages

 

If your order has not arrived in the time frame above, please refer to your automated email containing your tracking number. We are happy to speak with our NZ based shipping agent if necessary however in our experience issues are most quickly resolved by the customer speaking direct to the courier to describe specific features of the home where it may have, or can be left.

If no-one is available to sign at the time of delivery, Toll will take your parcel back to an ADP or their depot. This needs to be collected within 7 days or it will be returned to The Sleep Store. Any issues or to arrange a collection you can call your local Toll on 13 15 31
