All Orders Within Australia
United Tackle Australia uses Star Track, Fastway and Australia Post as its primary carriers for domestic deliveries. Orders are generally dispatched within 24-48 hours of being received. If there are any problems with your order that may prevent prompt dispatch, you will be contacted within 48 hours.
Shipping times can vary from 1-7 business days depending on the size/weight of your order and your delivery location. Most orders arrive within 1-3 business days, however heavy and/or oversized items can take longer due to service level restrictions from carriers (usually 3-7 business days to most areas).
Shipping & Handling charges are caculated automatically at checkout for all orders from 0-25kg weight. Orders over 25kg actual or cubic weight will be quoted manually after your order is placed. We always try to use the carrier that offers the quickest, most reliable service for the goods being carried, and the area being delivered to.
Our couriers deliver all over Australia however some more remote area's are covered using Australia Post or Australia Post Contractors. These area's are known as 'On-Forwarding Areas'. If you are in an 'On-Forwarding Area', your parcel will go to the nearest courier depo within their network and then be passed onto Australia Post for the final leg of the journey. Australia Post have much more strict guidelines to parcel sizes than some couriers, and parcels over 1.2m in most areas will not be carried by Australia Post. If you live in an 'On-Forwarding area' and plan to purchase an item that will be longer than 1.2m, please contact us to discuss freight options so we can arrange to get your parcel to you as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Please note that under no circumstances does United Tackle Australia give our couriers Authority To Leave (ATL) for parcels. If a parcel is being shipped to a residential or business address and does not fit inside a standard mail box (for Aus Post shipments), it must be signed for on delivery. This is a security measure to minimise any risk of your parcel being lost or stolen. It is advised that you choose a delivery address where someone is available to sign for/take delivery of your parcel.
*External territories such as Cocos-Keeling Islands, Christmas Island, Norfolk Isalnd etc. have seperate freight rates to those stated above. Please contact us for a freight quote if required.
