Does the Hamper Emporium Deliver and Offer Express Delivery?

Author: Nicole Adler   Date Posted:23 March 2019 

The Hamper Emporium offers numerous delivery options to customers who want to order some Australian food hampers for a special occasion. If you want to know more about these delivery options for your Australian food hampers, please read our overview below.

What Is the Standard Delivery?

Undoubtedly our most popular delivery option for Australian food hampers– the free standard delivery – available for all customers residing in Australia. To take advantage of this free delivery option, the only thing customers need to do is select this delivery option when checking out their  gift hampers.

Please note that delivery times of Australian food hampers may vary on your location. For example, customers living in Sydney will have a different delivery time for their Australian food hampers than customers residing in Melbourne. Below, you will find a complete overview of delivery times, so you can make an informed decision when choosing the delivery option for your gift baskets.

  • Customers residing in the Victoria, Queensland, New South Wales Metro Areas: 1 to 3 business days.
  • Customers residing in the Tasmanian and South Australian Metro Areas: 3 to 5 business days.
  • Customers residing in Perth, Darwin and other regional areas: 5 to 8 business days.

The delivery dates for your Australian luxury gift hampers are usually quite accurate, but there can be courier delays when a busy period occurs; for example, the holiday season. If you expect a busy season for packages, please consider potential delays and order your Australian luxury gift hampers ahead of time to ensure a timely delivery.

What Is the Express Delivery?

Our Express Delivery option is used by customers who need their Australian luxury gift hampers quickly. However, customers must also consider a variable delivery time based on their location. Delivery times always depend on how far you live from the Hamper Emporium warehouse. To give you a better idea of the delivery times you can expect with the Express Delivery option, we have created an overview of estimated delivery times below.

  • Customers residing in Sydney Metro: same day of ordering (if order is placed before 1 pm on a business day, otherwise the hamper will be delivered the next business day).
  • Customers residing in Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra and New South Wales: next business day.
  • Customers residing in Darwin and other cities outside major cities: 1 to 3 business days.

What Are the Additional Considerations for Gift Hamper Deliveries?

Please note that all our estimated delivery times are based on the idea that your order is placed before 1 pm on a business day. If you order after 1 pm, your order will be shipped the next business day, since the Hamper Emporium gets a courier collection only around this time.

How Are Chocolate Hampers and Other Perishables Shipped?

Many customers ask us how we can guarantee the freshness of our hampers with perishables. Good examples of such hampers are our chocolate hampers, because if these chocolate hampers are not properly packaged or transported, the chocolate inside these chocolate hampers could melt. Fortunately, the Hamper Emporium takes measures to ensure their chocolate hampers, and other Australian luxury gift hampers containing perishables, are not affected by the transport process and arrive safely on your doorstep.

What Should I Know About Christmas Hamper Delivery?

When ordering one of our Christmas hampers, please consider that delays may occur during the holiday season; therefore, we recommend ordering your hamper well before Christmas. To ensure our customers get their hamper on time, we also have cut-off dates during the holiday season. These dates are different for every region, since delivery times may vary on your location.

To ensure everyone gets access to the best Christmas hampers this holiday season, we have decided to extend the delivery time for Christmas 2019. This year, we allow delivery up to Christmas Eve. So, customers ordering one of our best Christmas hampers a little later can still benefit from our amazing products.

The extended delivery time on our best Christmas hampers is also available to businesses who want to benefit from corporate branding. Please note that corporate branding does take some time to implement, so we always advise to choose one of our best Christmas hampers with corporate branding with some time to spare.

What Do I Do If I Want to Return a Delivery?

If you are not happy with your gift hamper, the Hamper Emporium does accept return deliveries. To make this progress go smoothly, we recommend contacting our customer service team before you send your hamper back, especially in the unlikely event you have received a damaged or faulty item. The Hamper Emporium takes pride in the quality and presentation of its Australian luxury gift hampers, hence why we aim to provide our customers with the best possible service, even if the customer wishes to return their delivery.

Customers who want to return their delivery must contact the Hamper Emporium. Then, one of our representatives will send you a return label, which covers the cost of the return shipping. Before using the return label to send back the damaged or faulty item, the customer must provide photographs, so we can understand the extent of the damage or issues with the product and can prevent similar problems in the future.

Please note that returning a delivery is only possible within 30 days after the dispatch of your order; this also applies to replacements, refunds, credit or exchanges. Therefore, please inform us within this period if you wish to return the item.

Can I Cancel a Hamper Order?

When the Hamper Emporium receives an order, the hamper is dispatched within one to four business hours. If you have made a mistake during your order, or wish to make some changes, it is advised to call us immediately. Customers must also consider that orders cannot be cancelled as soon as they have been picked up by the courier, or if your hamper is already in transit.

Customers can send their hamper back if they are unhappy with their order, or if they had a change of mind. This must be done within 30 days after dispatching the original order. In exchange, the customer can choose to replace their hamper for another one, get store credit, or get a refund. Of course, this only occurs when the hamper has been returned to our warehouse. As soon as the hamper is received, our representatives will send you an email.
