Worldwide express shipping
Australian orders will be delivered via CouriersPlease while international orders will be delivered either by DHL Express or FedEx International Priority.
There are restrictions to deliver Dangerous Goods (battery -ies) to remote areas, outlying territories and most islands without road connection to the mainland (bridge, not just ferry). In such case, we will contact you to discuss whether you prefer shipping to an alternate address or a refund. We are also unable to ship to P.O. boxes or APO/FPO address.

Neither of the courier companies that we use (DHL, FedEx and CouriersPlease) guarantees any delivery date, so don’t we. Please make your purchase well in time, especially when you need AirBuddy for your upcoming vacation, plan to move house, sail away, etc. Below table shows typical shipping times based on our historical data of AirBuddy shipments – from pick-up at our factory until delivery to the receiver (incl. customs clearance where required). On rare occasions, delays beyond these timeframes may occur. Once a shipment has been picked up by the courier, it’s no longer in our control and it can’t be called off under any circumstances.

BACKORDER NOTE: We are currently accepting backorders. Unfortunately, our supplier of regulator hoses found a quality deficit and will have to redo the entire (large) production batch. A limited production run of AirBuddies is available with approximately 1 – 1.5 week lead time. Further production runs will be announced as we work through the situation and gain more confidence in the new deadlines from the supplier. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Customs charges - other countries
Orders shipped to customers outside Australia, GST will not apply. The shipment may, however, be subject to import duties, customs fees and taxes at the destination, depending on the laws of the country concerned. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they might be. Since customs policies vary widely from country to country, you may want to contact your local customs office for further information.
Please make sure that you are available on the phone number and email provided with your shipping details. DHL or FedEx (or their partners) will typically assist to process the customs clearance for you. They will need to contact you if they require any information for the customs clearance and to organise your payment of the tax and duty.
Damaged, lost or stolen shipments
We will share with you the tracking number(s) once your AirBuddy has been shipped. Inspect the shipment on delivery before signing the receipt. Should the package be damaged, raise the issue with the courier and notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Open the package and thoroughly inspect the product for damage, defects or missing items as soon as possible. If you do not notify us of any damage, defect or missing items within 5 working days of the shipment receipt, we will assume that the shipment arrived without any damage, defect or missing items.
We are NOT responsible for damaged, lost or stolen items due to any parcel service faults. We will do our best to assist resolving the issue with the courier, but cannot make any warranties.
Please note that the shipping companies usually limit their liability according to the Warsaw or Montreal Conventions and provide limited compensation in case of a damaged, lost or stolen parcel (around $10 – $30 per kg).
