We use a number of carriers to get your goods to you, with the main carriers used being Fastway Couriers, Star Track Express & Australia Post. We always try to use the carrier that offers the quickest, most reliable service for the goods being carried, and the area being delivered to. If you would like to request us to use a specific carrier, please contact us when ordering. Most orders will be delivered vis an express service within 1-3 days, however if this is not possible, we will contact you to let you know how long delivery will take.
Our couriers deliver all over Australia however some more remote area's are covered using Australia Post or Australia Post Contractors. These area's are known as 'On-Forwarding Areas'. If you are in an 'On-Forwarding Area', your parcel will go to the nearest courier depo within their network and then be passed onto Australia Post for the final leg of the journey. Australia Post have much more strict guidelines to parcel sizes than some couriers, and parcels over 1.2m in most areas will not be carried by Australia Post. If you live in an 'On-Forwarding area' and plan to purchase an item that will be longer than 1.2m, please contact us to discuss freight options so we can arrange to get your parcel to you as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Please note that under no circumstances does Bluewater Tackle give our couriers Authority To Leave (ATL) for parcels. If a parecl is being shipped to a residential or business address and does not fit inside a standard mail box (for Aus Post shipments), it must be signed for on delivery. This is a security measure to minimise any risk of your parcel being lost or stolen.
It is advised that you choose a delivery address where someone is available to sign for/take delivery of your parcel.
*External territories such as Cocos-Keeling Islands, Christmas Island, Norfolk Isalnd etc. have seperate freight rates to those stated above. Please contact us for a freight quote if required.
