Renovator Store Free Freight Protection Policy
Renovator Store wants its customers to receive their ordered items safely and efficiently. It uses trusted carriers with tracking and very high delivery success. However, sometimes mistakes are made or carriers fail to provide a perfect service.
In the unlikely event that your goods get lost or damaged in transit we’ve got you covered with our Free Freight Protection – we’ll organise a replacement product(s) or part(s) at no additional cost! Terms and conditions apply as per below. Renovator Store requires evidence to its satisfaction of the transit damage or loss before it can action any remedy.
IMPORTANT: You have 5 business days to report any damage in transit under this policy
The protection under this policy strictly expires at 4pm on the 5th business day* after the delivery date (as recorded by the carrier). Therefore it is important the Purchaser carefully inspects the item(s) immediately after delivery and record and report any issues immediately to Renovator Store Customer Service. Any damage not reported in this 5 business day period is not covered by this policy.
* A business day is in reference to business days for Victoria, Australia
Receiving your Order
Most shipments require a signature on receipt. If there is evident damage to items do not accept delivery of those items only and contact Renovator Store immediately on (03) 9544 3003 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If you experience problems with the Carrier or their service that might contribute to damage or loss then please record any information that may assist Renovator Store's requirements below.
Deliveries to collection points, parcel lockers (such as Australia Post's Parcel Lockers) or deliveries without a signature on delivery are deemed to be an "Authority to Leave" and therefore are not covered by our Freight Protection Policy for transit loss or damage once delivered. Deliveries under special instruction by the customer such as re-directions, date specific deliveries, special requirement deliveries, non-standard deliveries, or authority to leave deliveries are at the risk of the customer and not covered by the Freight Protection Policy.
Determining if an item(s) is damaged in transit
Renovator Store will determine whether an item has been damaged in transit at its absolute discretion. Renovator Store will require evidence of the damage during its freight transit. Therefore it is important to record any observed or potential damage - photographs of any package damage and item damage are essential. You must retain the item and all of its product and transit packaging as it may need to be inspected by the Carrier or inspected under our Carrier insurance arrangements.
Determining if an item(s) is lost in transit
Renovator Store will determine whether an item has been lost in transit at its absolute discretion. In most cases before making any conclusions Renovator Store will require investigations into finding the lost item(s) and written evidence from the Carrier that the item is lost and not recoverable. Importantly, an item is not deemed to be lost if any of the following apply:
- The customer supplied delivery address is incorrect or not clear,
- The tracking information for the shipment is still showing it is in transit (or equivalent), and
- The item was accepted or left at the delivery address according to the carrier.
