Ways to order
There are several simple and easy ways to place an order with Independence Australia. You can see more information about these here.
We understand your time is important, which is why we use our nationwide network to ensure your order is delivered to your door as soon as possible.
How long will it take for my order to arrive?
Independence Australia can deliver products to your door step Australia wide. Once you have placed your order it will be dispatched within 24 hours if the product is in stock*.
From the date of your order, you can expect the following estimated delivery times for products that are in stock:
For metro locations, approximately 1-2 working days; and
For regional locations, approximately 2-5 working days
If you haven't received your order within the above timeframe, it may be on back order (ie. out of stock). For approximate delivery timeframes for products on back order, please contact our Customer Service team on 1300 788 855 or via email email@example.com.
* If an order is placed on a weekend, it will be processed the next business day.
How long will it take for my order to arrive over the Christmas and New Year period?
Our courier services will be operating throughout the Christmas period, excluding public holidays. As this is a busy time of year, please allow additional time for orders to be delivered to avoid disappointment.
Do you have set delivery times?
No, as delivery companies are third party contractors, we generally have no control on delivery times. These companies will service your area up to 4 times per day.
What will happen if I am not home when my order arrives?
Normally the delivery agent will leave a card advising that they attempted delivery and instructions on how you can receive your package.
If you think you may not be home, you can also advise Independence Australia on where you would like the goods to be delivered e.g. "Please leave on verandah if no one is home". This message will be passed onto the delivery agent. Any other special delivery instructions should be provided when placing your order.
