Delivery prices and times for these items will be discussed for confirmation with the Customer after an Order has been placed.
We will use reasonable endeavors to ensure its delivery agents meet delivery estimates. However, OzCoolers cannot be held liable for any delay in delivery.
The risk in the Goods transfers to the Customer at the time of delivery but the title will not pass until payment has been made in full for the Goods in question. Customers are advised to notify OzCoolers immediately if Goods are delivered in damaged or soiled packaging.
Goods delivered are used, stored and installed at the Customer's own risk and OzCoolers will not be liable for any damage, loss or disruption caused by the same unless caused by OzCoolers' negligence. Where installation/disconnection services have been ordered by the Customer, further charges, terms, and conditions may apply as communicated by OzCooler to the Customer before delivery.
All large refrigeration and flat packed Goods are delivered to the front door of ground floor locations only. The delivery person/driver may at his/her discretion assist with delivering the Goods to a location within the premises nominated by the Customer, at the Customer's sole risk.
If the Customer will not or does not accept delivery when the Goods are ready for delivery or OzCooler or its agent cannot affect delivery because OzCooler or its agent consider at the time of delivery that delivery would be hazardous or would be contrary to their policies, industry practice or statutory requirements or because the Customer has not provided OzCoolers with appropriate instructions, documents, licences or authorizations to properly, legally and safely effect delivery of the Goods, risk in the Goods passes to the Customer, the Goods will be deemed delivered, and OzCoolers may store the Goods until actual delivery, in which case, the Customer will be liable to OzCooler for all related costs, such as re-delivery charges, storage, and insurance.
Warranties and Returns
Goods delivered may be returned for a refund, exchange or replacement 5 working days provided they are returned unused, in a saleable condition and in their original packaging. Returned items are subject to a restocking fee (15%of the unit value). Certain Goods cannot be returned for hygiene purposes. Certain Goods such as wine corks must be returned in adequate postal packaging for health and safety reasons. The cost of returns may be refunded in whole or in part to the Customer at OzCoolers discretion.

Large Goods such as fridges must be visually inspected by the Customer on delivery for damage and an acceptance of delivery docket completed noting any damage that resulted from delivery. Goods that are missing, delivered faulty or defective by OzCoolers may be replaced, repaired, refunded or exchanged at OzCoolers' discretion provided OzCooler is informed in writing within 28 days. You (the customer) are liable for any shipping costs for BOTH directions (from the facility it was ordered from to you, and back to the stockroom). The total cost of the purchase price minus these fee charges and expenses will then be refunded or sent back to you when the facility processes your product(s) (item must be returned within 30 days, new, unused, and in original packaging). Refunds will only be provided to the same credit card that you utilized when putting in your order. Certain Goods may be disposed of in accordance with OzCoolers safety instructions for replacement, refund or exchange with OzCoolers' prior approval.
