Delivery Information

Your goods can be delivered to you – Here’s how it works….

Small packages and boxes

When using third party providers for delivery, Abbeys insist on parcel tracking and expect the courier to communicate directly with you via SMS or email to advise of your delivery status. Deliveries are collected from Abbeys on Tuesdays and Thursdays and should be delivered to most parts of Australia within 7 days.

Our rate includes the careful preparation and packing of your item to ensure it says safe during transit.  Please note that most couriers, including Australia Post, are currently experiencing significant delays nationwide.  Delivery will most likely take longer than you are used to – and may take up to 14 business days.  Thank you for your patience.

Furniture and large orders with multiple boxes

Your furniture and bulk items will be delivered by the Abbeys team or our engaged carriers. Abbeys deliveries can only be arranged for Mondays.  If you require a delivery on an alternate day, please contact one of our recommended couriers (listed below).

What about insurance?

It is the buyer’s responsibility to arrange insurance.

In order to keep your costs down, all parcels and boxes will be sent without insurance unless you let us know otherwise. Please tell us if you require insurance and we will quote and arrange this for you.

Can I arrange someone else to collect my goods for me?

Yes, Collection (also called “Click and Collect”) is strictly by appointment. Please call us to make arrangements or click here for more information.  Make sure the person collecting your goods is aware of our  pick-up process and can quote your buyer number on arrival.

Can I organise my own delivery?

Yes you can!  Here’s a list of our recommended couriers:

  • Local Delivery: Dougs Mini Movers:  0419 508 559 or view website at
  • Local Delivery: Pack & Send: 1300 668 000 or view website at
  • Interstate Delivery:  Mullumbimby Reliable Removals (02) 6684 2198 or view website at

Alternatively you can organise an Uber package service to collect your smaller consignments by downloading the Uber App.  Find out more about Uber packages here

Please note, we will safely pack items for an Uber delivery – this incurs a $15 handling and packing fee.  Contact us on 03 9898 2118 to organise your pick up time.

What if my goods are damaged?

Despite everyone’s best efforts, sometimes damage does occur. We do not accept responsibility for goods once they have left our care. However if damage does occur in transit, please call us within 24 hours of receipt and we’ll do our best to sort it for you.

Please call us for more information.

What will my delivery cost? We have fixed prices for local deliveries.  This includes the careful handling and packing of your item to ensure it reaches you safely.

When you win an item, you will be sent an email confirming your purchase and provided with a link to pay for your items.  It is at this stage you can request a postage / delivery quote to be added to your order, or simply call us to discuss your options. Please note that we can only deliver to your home on Mondays.  If you require an alternate day, please contact one of our recommended couriers above.
