Orders are posted via courier services or Australia Post (dependent on the shipping location and availability of shipping services). We currently post orders Australia-wide to a physical street address or to PO Boxes & Parcel locker addresses if desired.
In regards to deliveries made by courier companies, if the first delivery attempt by the courier company is unsuccessful when signature on delivery is requested, some courier companies will attempt re-delivery, however some may leave a collection slip for the gift recipient to collect the parcel from a local collection point. If you have any queries about where your parcel is, please follow up with the courier company directly using the contact details provided on the parcel collection slip. If you have any questions send us an email at email@example.com.
Order Packing & Dispatch Timeframe
At Harry Hoot we strive to package and post all orders quickly and with care. We want you and your gift recipients to receive your packages as soon as possible. We aim to pack and dispatch orders within 1-4 business days of receiving the order and payment, however we do our best to process orders within 1-3 business days where possible.
Please note, for handling time of our CAM CAM baby nests to allow an additional 1 – 2 business days on top of our standard handling time.
Delivery time frames vary depending on the shipping location within Australia. Our orders are dispatched from Brisbane Metro in Queensland (except baby nests and nursing bags, which are dispatched from our Supplier in Victoria direct to our Customer. Transit times will vary from these below and will be quicker the closer your shipping address is to Melbourne, Victoria).
As we are located in Brisbane, delivery of hampers and products (except baby nests and nursing bags as mentioned above) to the Brisbane, Gold Coast & Sunshine Coast areas typically take 0 – 1 business day (sometimes 2 depending on how far south or north of Brisbane the shipping destination is located).
Deliveries to other metro locations on the East Coast of Australia including Sydney & Melbourne are also fairly quick, usually taking 2 to 4 business days in transit on top of handling time (however, at times can take longer due to fluctuating shipping delays due to Covid-19 service disruptions).
Delivery destinations further away will take longer (approx. delivery times below):
Adelaide, SA: 3 business days.
Launceston, TAS: 6 – 8 business days.
Perth, WA: 7 – 9 business days.
Darwin, NT: 8 – 11 business days.
The further away the shipping destination from these capital cities, the longer the transit time will take, usually up to 11 business days. However, if the location is quite rural delivery times may take longer than this. If you would like an accurate delivery estimate specific to the delivery suburb, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org & we will respond within 6 – 12 hours (usually sooner).
If you have a hamper order that is urgent, we have an upgrade to Express Shipping option for an additional fee available at Checkout. Our Express Shipping hampers are prioritised, being packed & dispatched within 0 to 2 business days (depends on the time the order is placed, although usually sent same day or next day from order placement). Express shipping orders are sent from the Brisbane Metro Area and typically take 1 – 2 business days in transit if going to another metro area with the Australia Post Express Service. However, some outer metro & rural areas may take 2 business days or longer. * Please note, due to the current Australia Post network delays, in some cases we are utilising Courier services for some Express Post orders where it may be quicker (mainly in metro areas in QLD, NSW & VIC areas).
