Shipping & Delivery Times

At Pet Threads, we’re happyto offer you fast & affordable shipping options. We have two warehouses, one positioned locally within Australian and another international warehouse in Asia. Some items are housed only in one, not both, of our warehouses – if you place an order with items housed in both warehouses your order will be split and delivered separately. Orders with items housed locally will incur a shipping cost if your order is under $50 AUD, items housed internationally are always shipped free!

All items dispatched from our international warehouse take a total of 13 – 20 working days to be delivered; this includes dispatch time. Internationally dispatched items may leave our international warehouse at different times and your order may be split into separate deliveries. You will receive separate tra

Outside metropolitan areas guaranteed service is to and from townships only. If your item is for an address outside the Express Post network, AusPost will use the fastest possible transport links, but it won’t be covered by AusPost’s Next Day Guarantee.

Express Shipping orders made on a Friday will be most likely delivered on a Monday. Australia Post does not offer weekend delivery.

If you have purchased items from different warehouses, your order delivery will be split and you will receive two tracking codes separately. Please expect your items to arrive at different times, but within the estimated delivery window as specified at checkout.

We do not exchange items in the traditional sense, however you may ‘exchange’ your goods by:

Deliveries

If you are not home when the parcel addressed to you is delivered, one of the following things will happen:

If possible, it will be left in a safe place at your house (e.g. near your front door or hidden behind a bin) and then they might leave a card under your door telling you where it is.

If there is no safe place to leave the parcel, or the postie needs someone to sign for it, they will take it to the closest Australia Post collection point which is usually a retail outlet or business hub and leave a card under your door telling you where to collect your parcel from.

 

Change of address

We know you want your order fast so our team at the warehouse aims to process and pack your order as quickly as possible. This means that if you need to make changes to your order (including your shipping address), we can only do so if it hasn’t left the warehouse.

To change your shipping address, please contact us.
