Warranty and Returns Policy

Further we cannot accept responsibility for any items left unattended at the Customer delivery address.

Certain factors such as order size, weight and shipping address may require us to ship via another method. The Fleet Office reserves the right to change your shipping method in these cases and will provide tracking details for the new carrier once shipped. We use mainly couriers (TNT) however in certain circumstances we have to use Australia Post (PO Boxes).  We ship a variety of hardware in several different box sizes and configurations.  For insurance purposes, we often split down consignments into multiple packages.

The delivery times provided by The Fleet Office are estimates only. The Fleet Office will not be held accountable for loss or damage relating to late deliveries and undelivered orders/items. Orders that are reported as not received/delivered despite tracking number confirmation of delivery confirmation are not eligible for replacement nor will compensation be granted unless proof of delivery failure can be provided. In the event that multiple items are ordered, separate part deliveries may be made when some of the ordered items are not available in stock or on backorder. All reasonable attempts to notify you will be made using the details you provided. By agreeing to our terms and conditions you acknowledge all information set forth under our other Terms.
