Goods Sent By Freight Companies
‘Organature’ is not the freight company. ‘Organature’ obtain freight charges from a transport company on your behalf and in some instances, if available, transit insurance. These charges are paid by ‘Organature’ on your behalf and appear on your invoice as a separate freight charge for re-imbursement. Organature is not responsible for transit once the parcels have been picked up by the transport company from our despatch.
TNT gives estimated delivery dates, however they do not guarantee it will get there on that date. The time they deliver is between 8:30am-5:30pm. If you are not home when they deliver they are supposed to leave a note and it is then up to you to make contact with TNT to arrange delivery. If redelivery is needed the cost will be at your expense. Organature will call for credit card details any time up to 4 weeks after delivery.
Air Road Direct has many different options. If requested they can call before delivery. If you would like it left then it can be arranged. They will give a delivery date and there are options to have it delivered in either the morning or afternoon, however there will be an extra charge for this service. If you are not prepared to pay the extra then they will deliver between 8:30-5:30. As above, if not home they will leave a note then it is up to you to arrange delivery. If redelivery is needed the cost will be at your expense. Organature will call for credit card details before redeliver will occur.
Number of parcels; Our operation is from three different locations, which is one of the reasons why freight/postage cannot be combined. Freight company’s charges are based on volume/weight and combining several parcels will not freight any cheaper. Most bedding and linen are sent by post, mattresses and furniture by freight from two different locations. Sometimes they may arrive at same time. With each separate delivery the parcels are marked with the number of parcels if there are more than one. Sometimes the freight company do not deliver all parcels at the same time. Please wait a few days before contacting us for follow up.
To Safeguard Your Interest
Whether the outer packaging is damaged or is not damaged; do not automatically sign in the space provided. Instead, write across the delivery receipt “Pending Final Inspection” and sign under that wording. The parcel may look perfectly ok on the outside but rough handling can cause damage to the actual product. Should you after opening find damage, email the consignment number, shown on a label on outside of package, to firstname.lastname@example.org together with short explanation and photos of all damage(s). Transport companies will not honour any complaints and/or claims if these procedures are not followed and finalised within 24 hours. If goods are damaged and you have signed without wording “Parcel Damaged Pending Final Inspection” claims are no longer honoured. If you give permission to leave goods at a certain point on your property and there is any damage, claims will not be honoured by transport companies or their insurance providers.
Bedding And Other Items Sent With Australia Post
In most instances an Australia Post label with the wording “DO NOT SAFE DROP”, is on the parcel. This means that the parcel is not allowed to be left at your property unless you are home to receive it. If this is the case, they are to leave a card notifying you of the parcel and take it back to your local Post Office. Unfortunately there are occasions when Australia Post do not leave a card and we suggest if you have not received your parcel within 7 working days (allow 10 days for W.A.) you contact your local Post Office.
Packaging For Maximum Protection
All ‘Organature’ items transported by freight are triple packed for weather protection. Firstly in an organic calico bag, then plastic bag followed by the outer carton. Other goods are packed, firstly in an organic cotton bag or in true cellulose film depending on product, then the outer carton or heavy duty paper.
