COVID 19 potential impacts on parcel post for NSW & VIC due to hand sorting - AUS Post notice
By Joining The Sippery, you will get access to our range of wines at member rates, and enjoy free freight within Australia.
Plus, for every case you order online, we will donate $20 to the ASX Thomson Reuters Foundation.
Australia Post will temporarily pause all Parcel Post collections from eCommerce retailers in NSW, ACT and VIC – from 7am Saturday 4 September until 7am Tuesday 7 September. Collections will continue in all other states and territories.
This temporary measure will allow us to responsibly clear record parcel volumes in parts of our network impacted by COVID-19. The safety of our people is our highest priority, and this will help ensure volumes are kept to a safe and manageable level. Our team will continue with processing across the weekend in these areas. We apologise for the inconvenience. Please continue to check auspost.com.au for the latest information on impacts across our network.
Can I still place an order?
Yes. We’re still delivering to all Australian states excluding NT, TAS and Christmas Island and this will continue until we are advised otherwise.
My order is taking longer than usual - what gives?
Due to the increased number of orders we’re receiving at the moment, most delivery times are longer than usual. Auspost are working as hard as they can to deliver all orders as quickly and safely as possible. To avoid frustration, please allow a few more days when placing orders. If your Auspost tracking hasn’t updated within 3-4 business days, please let us know.
I’ve only received some of my order, is the rest coming?
At peak periods Auspost sometimes separate multiple case orders. They will deliver what’s ready to you straight away so that you can get sipping. The balance of your order won’t be far away.
Is it safe to receive orders?
Sure is. Auspost are doing everything they can to ensure the safety of you and their drivers, including contact-less delivery. For more info click here.
Any other questions?
How much does it cost for delivery?
As a member, delivery is free within Australia. We can only deliver to Australian addresses, but we are not able to deliver wine to the Northern Territory, Tasmania or Christmas Island.
When will I receive my delivery?
Depending on where you live, the delivery time will normally be between 5 and 10 working days. Your wine will be delivered by Australia Post in most instances.
I can't have my wine delivered home - what else can I do?
We can also deliver wine to your work place. If this does not suit, you will be able to leave an "Authority to Leave" instruction on your order, or you can collect from your local post office if this is not possible.
What happens if there is nobody around to accept my delivery?
Upon checkout, please be sure to select "Authority to Leave" and also leave clear delivery instructions, such as "Leave by the front door" or "leave at the back gate" when you place your order.
Do you deliver to PO Boxes?
Yes, we currently use Australia Post for deliveries and can deliver to PO Boxes.
What happens if some of my wine gets broken during delivery, or it is not delivered at all?
This is rarely ever a problem. However, if there is an issue with your delivery, we will replace or credit your account for anything you order but do not receive.
