Delivery Information

Our Shipping Policy

Giant Chemist Harbour Town will seek to action orders received as quickly as possible and expect the majority of orders will be dispatched a day or two after they are received, assuming that the products requested are in stock, it is a business day and that the online order is received before 10am EST. The processing of orders and all deliveries are made Monday to Friday excluding public holidays. On occasion, a product ordered may become out of stock. In this instance we will contact you to provide an estimated time of delivery, offer an alternative product or provide a refund.

Giant Chemist Harbour Town usually uses Australia Post for our deliveries. Please allow the usual Australia Post postage times for delivery. This will vary depending on if you have chosen standard shipping or express shipping.  Sometimes delivery times may take longer than expected during peak promotional periods (e.g. Christmas), seasonal occasions (e.g. Mother’s Day) or due to public holidays. Your orders will be packed into plain boxes and unmarked for privacy and security reasons. Your order will be dispatched as soon as practicable after payment has been received.

Your online order will be delivered to the address provided and a signature will be required on receipt of the order. We suggest that if possible, you provide a work address for delivery. If no one is at home during business hours the parcel cannot be left unattended due to security issues. If no one is at home to sign for the order, a card will be left informing you of the nearest Australia Post branch where your order can be collected during normal business hours. You may choose to have your parcel left unsigned at the delivery address you give us. If you choose this option please remember that we are NOT responsible for the safe delivery of your parcel.

Delivery to Post Office Boxes or Mail Lockers is not permitted.

Should you need assistance, or experience any issues relating to delivery or shipping, please contact us via
