Damaged/lost via transit

Now and then Mr Postman man-handles parcels. While it is out of our control once your order leaves our care, we pack your orders as well as we could to provide as much padding and support as we can offer for your candles. Unfortunately we are unable to take responsibility for actions of any third party service for losses and damages.

We encourage you to add the Extra Cover option to your order. Please have a read through their policy as this involves a third party and is out of our control. Australia Post and other couriers company have their own process and policy as to how to get your refund to you. Depending on which courier we use, different policy applies.

If you chose not to have extra cover and your items are defective or damaged via transit, please attached the relevant photos and email us for further assessment. Once assessed, we may be able to offer you a store credit within 7 days.

We encourage you to ask for a leaving card or add Signature on delivery with your order as unfortunately we can't be responsible for parcels that are lost via transit. We can help you make an enquiry with the courier company, however once we have fulfilled our end of the service (and can provide proof that we do so) we cannot resend/refund your order.
