Do you ship internationally?
No unfortunately, we don’t. It’s simply too expensive, with often too much risk. It’s not out of the question that we won’t have this option available in the future, but right now we can’t.
What happens if I’m not home for a delivery?
In the event you or your recipients not at home to sign for the goods we will have the Courier leave a calling card for the persons to collect via a specified collection point. This is most often the local post office closest to the recipients address.
We unfortunately do not offer a re-delivery option as the parcel once shipped is is the secure hands of the Australia post delivery channels and will be held securely until collected and signed for via the Post office branch with 10 business days allocated for the collection prior to the parcel being returned unclaimed.
Unclaimed parcels will be held in situe for a nominal period while we investigate recipients address and details for re-delivery, unfortunately if a parcel is required to be reshipped once returned charges may apply.
Can I waive the signing for delivery if I know i wont be home in the delivery/business hours due to work?
Adding delivery instructions to your order is the best way to have a successful delivery and we ask that you have a safe and secure location for the courier to leave if requested. For example, if you’re not home, the driver can leave it somewhere safe on the property if we are directed to do so, Otherwise, perhaps your work address may be more suitable!
We certainly recommend the signing for goods as we cannot take responsibility once the items are "left" by the courier.
Claims for broken or damaged goods must be reported within 24 hours of delivery. Claims will be reviewed on their individual circumstances and final decision is at our discretion.
Requests for returns for store credit or exchange must be made within 7 days of purchase, It is our best practise to guarantee our product at time of shipment, and the assumption that it is received in perfect order and representative of the goods ordered. Goods of perishable or Goods such as wine are subject to conditions outside of Champagne Galleries control and as such we offer guaranties upon delivery of goods for the quality of the goods purchased.
It should be noted that Cellaring of Champagne and the subsequent condition of goods past the time of delivery is the responsibility of the recipient. Wine is in effect a living entity and as such changes with time and will prove to change vintage to vintage or season to season. UV Light and high heat can affect the quality of Champagne as it does with other liquor and perishable goods. All goods are packed in insulated foam or void fill/bubble wrap, as well as multi layered Cardboard shippers. This is important to insulate and ultimately protect the goods while shipping.
A tax invoice will be supplied if requested, the order confirmation outlines all details of the order as received via email upon completion of your order. Please contact Champagne Gallery via the main page if further information is required.
