Some Delivery Delays Expected
Our dispatch operations for delivery Australia wide remains open. All orders received before 2pm Eastern Standard Time on a weekday will continue to be dispatched on the same day.
There are no Australia wide restrictions on freight moving across state and territory borders via air or road at this stage.
Due to COVID-19 our Australia wide courier partners are experiencing occasional delivery delays due to reduced staffing at our courier’s depots and an increase in freight moving through the depots. Please note that our delivery time frames are a guide only as some deliveries may take one or two days longer. Please keep this in mind when ordering a hamper with a particular delivery date in mind and order ahead of time as we cannot guarantee delivery on specific days.
We are still dispatching all hamper orders same day if ordered by 2pm on weekdays and our next day Australia wide deliveries are still placed on our express next business day courier service.
We will not refund delivery fees if a delay occurs with your gift hamper.
Some changes in our delivery procedures:
We have been working with our courier partners to ensure the safety and protection of our gift hamper recipients by changing the way they carry out their deliveries.
A signature will no longer be required for a delivery, instead the delivery driver will ask for the recipient’s name and sign on their behalf using a unique identification number on behalf of the recipient. For security reasons, the event may be geo-coded with the date and time registered.
If no one is home to accept the delivery, an authority to leave will take place (the hamper will be left in a safe place at the premises). If there is not a safe place to leave the hamper, a calling card will be left at the front door or letter box, with information for the recipient to call the courier to discuss a new and more suitable delivery date.
Drivers are required to wear a face mask or covering and wherever practicable, maintain a minimum safe distance of 1.5m when delivering and collecting parcels.

ALL Same Day deliveries have an AUTHORITY TO LEAVE order placed on them. This means that if the recipient is not at home, the courier will leave the parcel at the address. If the courier deems it unsafe to leave on the premises i.e. if a driver cannot find a safe, off street and out of weather location to leave the parcel where it will not be damaged or stolen, the parcel will be returned to us and a fee of $15.00 will be charged.
If a Same Day delivery cannot be completed, we will make an attempt to call you, the customer. If you are unable to be contacted we will attempt to contact the receiver. If no contact can be made, the parcel will be returned to our warehouse.
Any attempts to re-deliver will incur a new shipping charge. If your order cannot be successfully and safely delivered that business day, it will be delivered the next business day.
Refunds will not be issued where Same Day delivery had been unsuccessful.
Incorrect delivery information
Please enter delivery details carefully. You must include ALL address details including full street number, street name and Business name if applicable.
It is vital that you ensure you are providing the correct delivery address of your recipient. If you realise you have entered an incorrect address, please call us immediately so we can amend the address if the order hasn't been dispatched. If the hamper cannot be delivered due to an incorrect address, it will be returned to our warehouse in due course. Any attempt to re-send a hamper returned to our warehouse will incur a re-delivery fee of $15 at the expense of the sender. Re-delivery fees are not covered by our Loyalty Club Membership.
If you provide an incorrect, yet legitimate address and the hamper is successfully delivered, we can no longer recall the hamper and will not be held responsible. We will not provide a refund in this circumstance and you will need to purchase another hamper should you wish to send another out.
Authority to Leave
Hampers dispatched to a residential address (provided the address is not a unit or apartment) will have an AUTHORITY TO LEAVE order on it. This means that if the courier deems it safe to do so, a parcel can be left at a recipient’s address if they are not home. This will only be acted upon if a driver finds a safe, off street and out of weather location to leave the parcel where it will not be damaged or stolen. If the driver deems it unsafe to leave the parcel, a calling card will be placed in the recipient’s letterbox for them to call the freight company and arrange a more suitable delivery day/time.
Please note it is the receiver’s responsibility to contact the courier to arrange appropriate delivery. If the parcel remains undeliverable due to no contact from the receiver, it will be returned to us at First Class Hampers. A $15.00 redelivery charge will be incurred to re-send the hamper.
*This section is not applicable for Same Day delivery service.
Our couriers do NOT deliver to PO boxes. Please ensure you provide a complete residential or business address to avoid delays in dispatch.

Your hamper is returned to us…why?
Occasionally a hamper will be returned to us for one of the following reasons:
Please note if delivery has been attempted and a card has been left by the courier, it is the receiver’s responsibility to contact the freight company to arrange appropriate delivery. If the parcel remains undeliverable due to no contact from the receiver, it will be returned to us at First Class Hampers and a $15.00 charge will be incurred at the expense of the sender to resend.
We take extreme measures of protecting your hamper during transit by using super strong shipping boxes and extra large AIRFLOW bubble wrap air pockets. In the unfortunate event that a gift has been damaged through the delivery process, we will offer you a replacement hamper. Please contact us immediately on 1300 131 151 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to organise for the hamper to be returned and a replacement hamper to be dispatched. We will require photos of all damaged items before a replacement is sent so that we can better understand the extent of the damage or issues with the product.
What time will the courier deliver my hamper?
Delivery cannot be guaranteed at a specific time and will be made sometime within business hours.
