Shipping & Returns Policy
Verde Home & Gifts
We do our best to keep our shipping costs as low as possible for our customers, so that you can enjoy lovely things from anywhere in Australia. As such, we offer a few different delivery options to help minimise shipping cost as much as possible.
All of our online orders are shipped via standard delivery using Australia Post or local courier, unless specified otherwise, and come with an Australia Post tracking number. We do recommend if your item is over the standard Australia Post included insurance amount that you consider taking insurance with your shipping. We cannot take responsibility for lost, stolen or broken items that are caused by the courier or postage system. We cannot refund broken or lost items if the incident occurred with the shipping company.
You can also elect to have Signature Delivery, which we would recommend.
Orders are usually shipped from our store in Hobart within 2 working days from receipt, and standard delivery typically takes 2-7 business days depending on location.
Free shipping in Australia is also available on a range of items in our store as indicated at the checkout and we ship each order via Australia Post standard delivery unless otherwise stated via tracked postage.
When we ship for free, we cannot take responsibility for lost, stolen or broken items that are caused by the courier or postage system. We do recommend if your item is over the standard Australia Post included insurance amount that you consider taking insurance with your shipping. We cannot refund broken or lost items if the incident occurred with the shipping company. Pease contact us if you would like to add additional insurance on your parcel.
Shipping in Tasmania
We generally ship our items using Australia Post, and shipping amount is calculated during the checkout process according to weight, size, and destination. We can ship using Australia Post to the vast majority of Tasmanian addresses, or if Australia Post is unable to deliver or too expensive for larger items, we can also offer courier delivery. If you would like to use a courier service for delivery, please get in touch with us for a quote.
We also offer free local pick-up at our store in West Hobart, and now have a flat rate delivery fee for Hobart and surrounding suburbs.
Flat rate of $13 for these suburbs Hobart, West Hobart, North Hobart, South Hobart, Battery Point, Dynnryne, Sandy Bay, Newtown, Mt Stuart.
Flate rate of $20 for suburbs Mt Nelson, Tolmans Hill, Bellerive, Montaque Bay, Rose Bay, Moonah, West Moonah, Rosny.
Flat rate of $34 for suburbs Lindisfarne, Howrah, Glenorchy, Geilston Bay, Blackmans Bay, Kingston, Ridgeway, Tranmere.
This will be displayed at the shipping section of our checkout page.
We will be adding more postcodes as soon as possible to ensure shipping in Tasmania is as good a price as we can achieve.
For bulky items, heavy items, and furniture, please feel free to get in touch with us for a courier quote - we often find that courier services can be less expensive than Australia Post for these bigger and trickier to send items.
