Pricing, Shipping & Returns

Payment
The Pac Fire website accepts PayPal, Credit Card (through the PayPal interface) and Direct Deposit as forms of payment. Goods will not be shipped until payment is received and cleared through the Pac Fire bank account.

On occasion, orders will be held after payment has been made for the arrival of stock. This is to save customers on freight. Customers will be notified as quickly as possible if an order is going to be held for the arrival of stock – notification will come via email or as a note on the online order.

Pricing
Prices on the Pac Fire online store exclude GST and freight charges and are subject to change without notice.

Shipping
Please allow 5 business days from payment for your order to be dispatched. Occasionally, an order will be held for the arrival of stock. This is to save customers on freight. Customers will be notified as quickly as possible if an order is going to be held for the arrival of stock – notification will come via email or as a note on the online order.

Customer will be notified of shipping via email, as well as a note on the order. This communication will contain the name of the shipping service as well as a consignment note number for tracking updates.

It’s important to note that Pac Fire’s responsibility for the goods ends when the elected freight provider has taken possession of the goods.

If you are not home at the time delivery you can issue an “authority to leave” allowing our carriers to leave the package unattended at your address without a signature. Pac Fire will not be responsible for any lost or stolen packages.

If no “authority to leave” has been issued or the carrier feels leaving the goods is unsafe, the order will be returned to the carriers depot for a short time then forwarded back to Pac Fire. Additional freight charges will apply for a returned or declined delivery.

At this time, Pac Fire cannot accept deliveries to a PO Box or Locked Bag though our online store as this attracts a freight surcharge from our couriers. Please email sales@pacfire.com.au or call 1300 731 800 for more information on our freight policy or to process an order to a PO Box or Locked Bag.

While we always strive to ensure on time delivery, there might be instances when the package may be delivered past the confirmed date.
