RETURNING ITEMS FROM A STOCKIST

Products purchased from a Trove stockist are bound by the terms and conditions of that stockist. It is the customers responsibility to be aware of and understand the return policy of the stockist from which they made any Trove purchase as these terms may vary. It is also the customers responsibility to notify the stockist from where the Trove product was purchased of any issues they may have. Products purchased from a stockist cannot be returned to Trove directly.

 

DELIVERY COSTS

Delivery costs will be calculated at checkout. From time to time we may offer free shipping or promotional offers.

 

SHIPPING TIMES

Trove will use reasonable endeavours to arrange dispatch of your items as soon as possible after you make your purchase with us. If you need it sooner, just contact us and we will do our best to fast track your purchase. The delivery time  and cost will vary depending on your location. Please allow extra time for processing and delivery at peak times like Christmas and Easter and during our season sales. Orders are not processed or dispatched on weekends or Australian public holidays.

Delivery times exclude the dispatch day. Generally, most orders (both local & international) are sent with Australia Post and are therefore bound by Australia Post's delivery times. You can view these by visiting www.auspost.com.au

Once your order has been dispatched you will receive an email notifying you of your tracking information or this information can also be found in your 'My Account' section if you have set-up an account with us. Delivery or tracking enquiries are the responsibility of the customer and can be made at www.auspost.com.au by quoting your tracking number or by other means if we have selected other delivery options for you.

All parcels are dispatched from Melbourne, Australia.

 

SHIPPING METHODS

For delivery of products within Australia we use a combination of Australia Post and other reputable couriers. Trove does not accept any responsibility for shipping times, and we will not refund items that arrive later than required.

Australia wide - all deliveries must be signed for. Risk and title in the product will pass upon you, or any other person in attendance at the delivery address, signing for receipt of the product. If there is no one at the delivery address to receive the product, the product will be taken by the postal service or courier company and a calling card will be left on your doorstep. The courier company may attempt further delivery of the product to you. As this may not always happen, we advise you to keep track of your delivery through the tracking number that can be found online in your Trove account and/or was emailed to you. Our courier providers will return your order to us if you do not arrange to pick it up promptly. Should this happen, you may be required to pay a $10 re-postage fee for re-delivery of your parcel. Trove does not accept any responsibility for goods once they have been collected including any loss or damage in transit. No re-imbursement will be made by Trove in such cases, unless you have chosen our Insured Post or Priority Shipping options, which include insurance for your goods. In this case, we will submit an investigation and your goods will be replaced or reimbursed on completion of this investigation. Postage will not be reimbursed.

 

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

Trove generally uses Australia Post services to deliver products outside of Australia (internationally). Just remember that you may be liable for customs duties in your own country. International shipping is available to selected countries and the charges are calculated at the time of checkout. These charges are set by Australia Post based on weight, height and packing of the products you have chosen at check-out and are calculated automatically. Trove do not dictate or profit from these charges.

Customs Fees: Some countries (UK, the E.U., and Canada in particular) charge Customs fees or import duties on goods ordered from overseas. Please be aware that these charges are the customer's responsibility and are beyond our control and your delivery charge with us does not include any applicable import taxes and customs duties for your order. We advise that you contact the relevant government body in your country (e.g. Customs & Excise) for information on what these charges might be. In compliance with Australian export regulations, we must declare the exact value of all products ordered and mark them dutiable as "merchandise". The law prohibits us from marking any order as a "gift" even if you are placing an order with the intention of sending a gift to a recipient. It is a criminal offence for us to make a false Customs declaration, and we are unable to misrepresent your goods for the reduction of import duties/tax fees. Customs inspections may also result in Delivery Estimate delays.

 

CHANGE OF ADDRESS

Change of address requests must be received within 2 hrs of placing your order by emailing sales@trove.com.au, and must be titled ‘Change of Address’ in the subject field. Please include your full name, order number and corrected shipping address in the body of the email. Orders returned because of incomplete or incorrect address information may incur an additional postage fee to resend.

Trove reserves the right to refuse to exchange or credit any requests.
