SIGNATURE ON DELIVERY

The Freak Sports Shipping method is strictly “Signature Required” to ensure your parcel is delivered to you with minimal delay and any risk of loss. If you are not home at the time the delivery reaches your address, the driver will leave a card advising the location of the nearby Australia Post facility that we’ve sent your parcel to.

To collect your parcel, simply take your card, proof of identity (with your signature), and proof of address to the Post Office listed on your card. If you’re planning to send someone else to collect the item on your behalf, remember to fill out the agent authorisation on the card.

To avoid this situation, we highly advise you to have your parcel sent to your work address or other suitable daytime delivery address to ensure that someone is available to accept the delivery. If your address includes a level please ensure you provide us with the company name.

SHIPPING INSURANCE

As part of our FREE Standard Shipping service we don’t offer shipping insurance. Insurance is offered on the check out to some zones, however to to organise shipping insurance to other zones, you must immediately contact us after your purchase and before dispatch as this is the only way we can insure your items at this stage. Our shipping suppliers have a good track record on delivering the orders and we are very pleased and comfortable sending most of the orders without any insurance.

Shipping insurance is not offered on kayak and bulky goods due to awkwardness, weight and size of the item. FSA have selected a few carriers which have a good track record delivering kayaks around the country. If the an bulky item is damaged in transport, FSA will work with freight company and customer to to achieve the best possible reasonable result in customers favour. Any damage on a bulky must be reported to FSA within 3 business days after receiving the item via email or contact form, and preferably inclusive of a few photos.

With these services we offer very competitive rates and to calculate a shipping price, simply add items to your cart and update your country and zip code in the shipping calculator on the cart or checkout page.

Currently we only offer returns from New Zealand and United Kingdom (UK) customers to Australia at the flat rate of $15 from New Zealand and $40 from UK. Rate might be subject change without notice.

DELIVERY DELAYS

Backorders

Product(s) is classified as backorders when product(s) for which customer has paid for in an order, but FSA doesn’t physically have them in stock to be dispatched in our normal dispatch timeframe. FSA allows backers because most of the items stocked can be received within two (2) to five (5) business days and dispatched the same day the item is received. Common reasons for backorders:

  • The product(s) is purchased on backorder, will have “backorder” label under your order summary and it will have approximate shipping time frame on the listing to fulfil your request. FSA will do the very best to stick to our estimates but sometimes the delay can be beyond our control and FSA will notify you by email or phone call. If this occurs you will have the option to keep it on backorder or request a full or partial refund refund for your order.
  • FSA is currently out of stock due to stock variation in physical stock.
  • The product has sold in FSA retail store or another channel before the order was picked as our system allows for backorders across all of our channels.

Unforeseen Events

During the wet season, deliveries to Northern Queensland and other parts of the country may be affected by adverse weather conditions, local expected and unexpected events. In this event, deliveries may take longer than our usual time frame. You can also expect longer than usual dispatch and delivery windows between the dates of 24th December 2014 and 5th January due to Christmas and New Year public holidays. Accordingly, please accept our apologies for any delays with you order.
