After dispatch from our delivery providers

Any locations and times in this policy are just a guide. Please note that once your order is dispatched from our delivery providers, boxfox can’t guarantee delivery dates or times.

Your shipping address not accepted at checkout

  1. If during a purchase you have received notice that your shipping address is invalid or notes that boxfox cannot ship to your chosen address, it usually means the shipping address has not been correctly entered into the appropriate address fields.
  2. Please ensure all fields are completed correctly. All Unit/Apartment/Suite numbers must be input to the field named (Apartment, Suite, etc) and not in the (Address) field.
  3. Further, the (Address) field should only include your active street number and street name (not your suburb).
  4. Re enter your shipping address as per the above guidelines and you should then be able to proceed to checkout


PO Box Deliveries

Note: We do not recommend PO Box deliveries.

If you have no option for an alternate business or residential address, you will incur fees over and above the shipping costs paid at time of purchase.

PO Box deliveries are not available for Direct Freight Express. 

Please note any failure to deliver to PO Box services, along with any redirections or returns to our warehouse will incur charges.

Please ensure that you provide a physical street address when completing your shipping details. This includes business name if you are delivering to a business. We much prefer that you use a business or residential address for deliveries.


Delivery Addresses – ATL (Authority to Leave)

If you use a private address, you automatically agree to an ‘Authority to Leave’ goods if no-one is there. Please note that our delivery providers cannot contact you before OR during delivery or be at your address at a set time. Please follow the carriers tracking information, which we provide on dispatch, and be available to accept your delivery.

Please note that it is essential to provide accurate and up-to-date delivery address details during the checkout process. To ensure successful delivery, we rely on the accuracy of the information provided. In case the address provided does not match the Google location, a fee for redelivery will be charged to cover additional shipping costs.

Additionally, please be aware that redirecting your order through a third-party service such as DFE or Australia Post may result in further fees due to the additional handling and processing involved.

What happens if no-one is at the receiver's premises to accept goods when the driver arrives? 

In the event of failure to deliver a consignment by DFE due to no access for ATL (Authority to Leave) or no one present to accept delivery, charges will be applicable for futile delivery AND when a redelivery is made. It is the responsibility of the recipient to ensure accessibility and availability during the scheduled delivery time via the tracking information from our third-party carrier. These charges are necessary to cover the costs incurred by our company for the failed delivery attempt, including transportation, labour, and administrative expenses. We kindly request your cooperation in providing accurate information and suitable arrangements to avoid any inconvenience or additional charges in future.

About Australia Post Parcel Post

  • Deliveries nationwide
  • Cost-effective and reliable service
  • Track your parcel from purchase to delivery via convenient notifications
Authority to share your email and mobile phone details

When you choose Parcel Post you also consent to boxfox sharing your email and mobile phone details so that Australia Post can provide tracking notifications.

MYPOST: From 5 October 2023, Australia Post will send digital notifications* to advise of an attempted delivery, instead of leaving a paper card.

These notifications will let you know that we tried to deliver and the reason why it couldn't be completed, and when your parcel is ready for collection at the post office or a nearby collection point. These will be sent via email, SMS or through the AusPost app. If you use the app, you'll also get a one-off QR code specific to that parcel. 

Simply show the notification, the QR code (for app users) and suitable ID at the Post Office to collect your parcel. Your parcel will still be kept at the Post Office for 10 business days for you to collect, and we'll send you a reminder on day 5 if your parcel hasn't been collected.

Don't worry if you are not a MyPost customer, you'll still get a paper card.
