Hunter Valley Hampers 

Due to Covid19 couriers are continuing to experience increased demand. Whilst some deliveries are on time, others are experiencing delays of 3-5 business days on top of their usual delivery timeframes (see below).

 

Fruit Baskets 

To ensure the best quality Fruit Baskets, we can ONLY deliver to the following locations:
Metro areas of:- Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong, Brisbane, Gold Coast and the Central Coast.
Orders must be placed before 9am (Mon- Wed) for same day dispatch, and up to 6pm Wednesday for dispatch on Thursday morning.

Any orders after 6pm Wednesday will be dispatched on the following Monday to ensure your fruit basket does not spoil sitting in a courier warehouse over the weekend. Please allow 2 days for delivery depending on the location.

It is important to note that ‘dispatched’ means leaving our premises on that days courier service, it does not mean same day delivery.  

Unfortunately we cannot control operations once couriers have our parcels.  As always we do guarantee the quality of your fruit basket and will refund or replace if there any issues with quality.  At Hunter Valley Hampers we personally select your fruit fresh daily for every order to ensure the highest quality.

COURIER SERVICES

 

Once your hamper has been crafted, one of our courier partners will be booked to ensure the most timely delivery. Our couriers deliver Monday to Friday during business hours. Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee delivery on an exact day. Usual delivery times are outlined below, however it is always best to allow an extra day or two to ensure your hamper will arrive by the date you require. 

Expected delivery times are also subject to change during times of high demand.

we are currently only dispatching Fruit Baskets to Sydney and Newcastle.


Please note the following:

  • Ordering on a Friday to Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Canberra can mean your delivery will arrive Tuesday as we prefer not to leave hampers in freight depots over the weekend. This is not the case for Newcastle deliveries.
    · Hunter Valley Hampers only delivers to Australian destinations.
    · Couriers may not leave hampers without an adult’s signature, unless authorised (if you have chosen signature required when ordering), so please make sure you provide an address which is attended during business hours.
    · Where possible, please provide a contact phone number for the recipient.
REGIONAL DELIVERIES

Where delivery is to be made to a regional part of Australia or PO box where couriers do not go, the parcel will be sent via Australia Post therefore delivery times may be longer than those stated above.

 

 

 

Flat Rate Delivery

Delivery to all areas of Australia is $15 per location. There may be additional shipping costs if multiple shipping cartons are required.


Christmas Delivery

Christmas is a busy time of year and demand on courier services and product supply is higher than usual. To ensure your hamper gift arrives in time, please place your order well in advance of Christmas.
To guarantee delivery of your gift by Christmas, you will need to ensure your order is placed as early as possible in December. Our deliveries will be made in line with Australia Post services.
