Shipping & Returns
OUR SHIPPING POLICY
Any item with the "Free Shipping" truck displayed to the right hand side of the price ships to ACT, NSW, VIC, QLD and SA metropolitan areas for free (that's most items on our website)!!
Free Shipping is not available to WA, NT, Far North QLD, TAS or any non-metropolitan or remote location within Australia, as determined by us. Shipping charges to these locations will be displayed in the cart during checkout.
We reserve the right to withdraw our freight free policy at any time.
Discounted freight may be available for large orders. For a custom freight quote, please contact us prior to checkout.
Dispatch policy and shipping addresses
Orders will be dispatched from Canberra, ACT by Startrack, Australia Post, Tattam Express or Fastway Couriers. Some orders may be dispatched directly from our supplier in order to shorten delivery time - you will be notified if this applies to your order. Please allow up to 2 days for dispatch and 2-8 working days for delivery. Orders are covered by transit insurance. It is your responsibility to supply us with your correct shipping address. Couriered items cannot be sent to PO Box addresses.
Items sent by courier are delivered during business hours and require a signature for confirmation of delivery. We therefore strongly recommend you nominate a WORK ADDRESS or similar for shipping. If there is no-one at the delivery address when the courier attempts delivery, you may be charged a re-delivery fee.
We ask you for a valid shipping address, email address and your best contact phone number during checkout. As a service to you, we like to make contact with you prior to your order being sent to confirm these details. No goods will be dispatched until these details have been confirmed.
Items damaged in transit
DO NOT sign for a package if you suspect it is damaged. Signing for an item means it has been received in good order, and any damage is no longer the courier's responsibility. If your item is damaged, you must call us (02 6282 3199) or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to notify us within 24 hours. So we can help you best, please include your name, address, items ordered and a brief description of the apparent damage. All items will be assessed by us on a case by case basis.
Goods sent by courier can be tracked using the usual "track-and-trace" feature on courier websites. You will find your Tracking Number and courier website address printed at the bottom of your shipment confirmation email.
Minimum Order Fee (MOF)
To cover freight and handling costs, all orders under $50 attract a MOF of $10 per order. You won't ever pay the MOF when the subtotal of your cart exceeds $50. To avoid the MOF, simply ensure the subtotal of your cart is greater than $50 prior to checking out.
Request for additional identification
For some high-value orders, we may ask you to provide additional identification to confirm credit card information. You will be notified by us by telephone or email if this confirmation is required. We appreciate your understanding as we try to minimise fraudulent transactions.
OUR RETURNS AND REFUNDS POLICY
Subject to the requirements of law, Better Music will not refund or exchange an item if you change your mind; please consider your purchases carefully.
If your item is found to be faulty due to a manufacturing defect, and is within the manufacturer's warranty period, Better Music will repair or replace your item. See the Returns Procedure below. If your item cannot be repaired or replaced, we may offer you a store credit or issue a refund.
Items found to be faulty due to abuse, mishandling or any sort of misuse will not qualify for warranty repair or replacement.
Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonable foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
To return an item for warranty assessment, and so we can serve you best, the following procedure must be followed. We reserve the right to refuse the return of any item that does not comply with this procedure.
1. E-mail us at email@example.com to notify us of the faulty item. Include your name, best contact phone number, invoice number, product name and fault description.
2. We will reply to you within 3 working days. If your return is approved, we will give you return details and the return address. This address may be Better Music, the authorised repairer or other authorised third party. We may also request further information to process the return.
3. Return freight costs are to be paid by the customer, and cannot be refunded.
4. Every returned item must be undamaged, unused and in as-new condition, in its original packaging, with all accessories included, if applicable.
