Terms and Conditions

Freight & Payment

Our freight pricing structure is applicable as of the 1st November, 2021.

  • ALL AREAS – Freight at cost + GST.
  • Regional areas - Freight at cost and destination surcharges (a follow-on charge only if a subsequent carrier is required as they are the only operator servicing that area). Charges can vary.
  • Orders with clay and plaster may incur additional costs due to excessive weight.
  • Additional Costs as charged by the logistics company:-
    • Hand unload (unpacking from pallet) – from $35 + GST (hand unloads vary).
    • Tailgate unload – $55 pallets and skids which require forklift or pallet jack.
    • Long lengths – over 1.99m (e.g., rails) $12 + GST.
    • Non-Delivery of goods, e.g., if you are not there to receive, we will recharge for redelivery.

As of October 2021, we are experiencing a further 2.80% increase in freight prices and a 14.1% fuel levy set by national agreement. Unfortunately, our platform is unable to accurately predict the cost of multiple products, pallets and heavy shipments. If you have questions about your freight, please contact us.

"Why am I not seeing my freight calculated at checkout?"
We are a wholesaler for bulk supplies, and often the weights of pallets we ship out can be 50kg+. We charge freight at cost what is charged from our freight company due to size, weight and dimensions of what is being sent out. Unfortunately our platform is unable to accurately predict the cost of pallets and heavy shipments like this. If you have questions about your freight, please send an email to sales@schoolartsupplies.com.au.

Payment

For schools, government institutions or organisation with an agreement with us, we supply 30 day accounts. For credit cards, please be advised that your card will be charged once freight is applied.

Delivery times

We have developed a reputation for streamlined supply. Most orders to metropolitan areas reach their destination within a few working days. Please indicate deadlines/ urgent requests. 

COVID-19 UPDATE: Currently, we are experiencing some delays with picking/packing and shipment of orders. Please be aware that some products are taking longer to reach our warehouse to be shipped out and can take longer than usual. If a delay time is excessive we will do our best to be in contact with you regarding the order. You can view our Covid-19 update letter to customers here.

 

Backorders

We have a reputation for streamlined supply, usually within a few days. Please indicate deadline requests. Backorders are minimalised, freight is waivered for backorders, unless excessive in weight or a bespoke product. With lengthy delays, we cannot backorder and ask you to re-order when the product is in-stock on the website. Please notify us if you do not want backorders created.
