We want your products to arrive quickly and at the best shipping rate we can offer. Shipping charges are calculated based on the product size and cross-referenced with your postcode and delivery address. Estimated shipping charges are from our Sydney Distribution Centre.
Delivery costs for individual products can be viewed by entering your postcode in the “calculate delivery” box seen on each product page. The final shipping charge for your order will be shown once your postcode is entered during the checkout process.
We attempt to dispatch your product within 24hrs from placement. Depending on your location, delivery of your order may take 5-10 working days, so if the goods are required for a specific day or event, please ensure you place your order well in advance to ensure the goods arrive in time. The estimated delivery times are in business days (Monday through Friday) excluding Public holidays. On most occasions Hunter are able to deliver your goods sooner than this estimate. The delivery times provided by Plum Play are estimates only, Plum Play will not be held accountable for late deliveries.
Once your order is dispatched, Plum Play will email you the tracking number that can be traced by visiting Hunter Express.
The track and trace service provided by Hunter will provide you with an ETA date for delivery, if no-one is available to take delivery on this date, they will leave a card in the mailbox requesting you to phone them to arrange a suitable time and date for re-delivery. If you don’t contact Hunter Express within 72 hours they will return your items back to us and you may be charged for re-delivery.
To avoid missing out on receiving your delivery the first time, we suggest the following options:
Leave a note on your front door with your name, consignment number and an “Authority to Leave” i.e. “leave under the carport”, “at front door”, “behind side gate” etc. Do not leave an “Authority to Leave” unless you are comfortable that it is safe.
Please note: it is at the driver’s discretion whether they adhere to the request and Plum cannot be held responsible for placement of goods on your property or if the instructions are not followed through.
Alternatively if you will not be home on the ETA day but you will be home the day after, you can contact the Hunter Express customer service team on 02 9780 4099 in advance of your delivery date requesting they hold your package until a suitable day when you will be home to accept delivery.
The special instructions box on the delivery page of the checkout is used for any instructions to help make it easier for the driver to make the delivery of your order for e.g."Last house at end of driveway"
"Office hours 9-5"
“leave under the carport”
“leave behind side gate”
Drivers are unable to grant specific requests such as "Deliver between 1-2pm".
Plum Play cannot be held responsible if your instructions are not followed. Customers who give authority for their order to be left unattended at their delivery address will only be replaced if the order is proven lost in transit by our delivery company. Plum Play accepts no responsibility for lost or stolen goods, once the courier has delivered your item and left it as per your request.
In addition, Plum accepts no responsibility should the driver not adhere to the instructions offered. This is at the delivery drivers discretion.
Always accept delivery. If you refuse delivery you may be charged a re-delivery fee for your order.
Check all items have been delivered before signing. If for example two out of the five items only have been delivered, please sign accordingly for two out of five, this can be written on the con-note above your signature. DO NOT refuse delivery; the rest of your items will be on its way, they may have just been delayed at one of the Hunter Express transport hubs.
