SHIPPING – Shipping Policy Update March 2015 – Like all businesses, LifeCell Australia is subject to the market & economic forces of the day. The significant depreciation of the $AUD against the $USD over the past 6 months has had a major impact on the cost base of the LifeCell products and is something that we have no control over. We have, and will continue, to resist an increase in the retail cost of those product to our customers. However, it has forced us to review the last remaining area of our “Free Shipping” policy. Consequently, we have now been forced to introduce a minimum shipping charge for all orders shipped within Australia & New Zealand.
1. The threshold for our existing charge of $8 has been lifted to $100 order value.
2. All orders over $100 will now attract a shipping cost of $10.
We do this with reluctance, but trust that you will understand the dynamics behind this decision.
Orders received before 1.00 pm AEST Monday to Friday will generally be packed & shipped that day. (If it is not a public holiday) Australia Post advise that delivery times may vary, but are generally within 3 business days to QLD, NSW, VIC, ACT and within 5 business days to WA, NT, TAS, SA.) Overseas orders are shipped via Air Mail or Express Courier. Shipping times can be dependent on the services (Customs, Postal) of the receiving country. If you experience delays you can contact our Customer Service department at 1300 850 533 (Australia), 0800 886 047 (New Zealand), or email us at email@example.com
