Deliveries are made Monday to Friday via Australia Post & Startrack. Hamper deliveries will not be made over the weekend or public holidays.
Cut off times for our orders are 12:00pm Australian Eastern Standard Time.
All orders received Mon - Fri before 12pm Australian Eastern Standard Time will be promptly dispatched the same day. Any orders that we receive thereafter or over the weekend, will be dispatched the following business day or based upon your chosen delivery date.
Whilst the majority of hampers are arriving within the delivery time frame, we advise selecting a date 1-2 days earlier when choosing your delivery date. We understand that this may result in your hamper being delivered earlier than expected, however should you wish we are able to place custom stickers on the shipping box informing you recipient not to open their parcel until your chosen delivery date eg: If it's a birthday gift the sticker will read "Happy Birthday. Please do not open until .......".
How to choose your gift delivery date?
Please be aware each state has a different delivery timeframe for your gift hamper to arrive. To give you a better idea on the delivery timeframes to certain locations visit www.auspost.com.au or www.startrack.com.au.
When choosing your delivery date, please note that the day you place the order IS NOT calculated within your delivery time frame. Please allow the following business day as your start date. Weekends are also NOT calculated within your delivery timeframe. Only Monday - Friday, therefore, allow extra days for delivery.
How is Shipping Calculated
Lifes A Hamper has a flat shipping rate of $13.95 for standard delivery only. Express shipping and Startrack are available at an additional cost and are based on location which will be calculated for you at checkout.

Whether or not to give Authority to Leave.
If you select "Authority to Leave" at checkout, please ensure the location is safe and secure as Lifes A Hamper will not take responsibility should something occur to the hamper.
Choosing Authority to Leave
Allows the hamper to be left in a safe place on the premises with no signature required.
Choosing No Authority to Leave
This is the best option if you are unsure about the area, or if the recipient lives in an apartment/unit complex. Calling cards are no longer used within Australia Post so please ensure you provide your recipient's mobile number in order for them to receive safe drop notifications for their delivery. It is the responsibility of the recipient to collect their hamper from the post office.

Hampers that are returned back to us due to incorrect or incomplete details can take up to 2-3 weeks for us to receive back. Please be aware that any products or packaging that needs replacing will incur a replacement fee. Hampers will not be dispatched until the replacement fee has been made.
We appreciate your understanding in this matter as we take great pride and care in the appearance of our hampers.
If you are sending a hamper to a hospital, we strongly suggest gathering as much information on the recipient's location including Ward and Bed Number. Please ensure the recipient has not been discharged from the hospital prior to sending the gift or on the delivery date. Redelivery fees will apply for incorrect or incomplete address details.
During peak periods delivery delays can occur, therefore we strongly advise you allow extra time when placing your orders to avoid disappointment.
