FAQ's

Home Living Store FAQS

1. Shipping & Delivery

HOW LONG DOES DELIVERY TAKE?

Delivery time varies depending on the supplier, warehouse, your location and the courier logistics. We have a 3 business day handling period, which allows for our admin team to process the order, the warehouse to pick the order and the courier to collect the order. Once your order has left the warehouse, you will receive tracking information to either the phone, email or both that you provided.

If your order is within 50km of our Perth (Cockburn Central) store, we may call you to arrange delivery with our own vans, however if we have too many local orders and determine that a courier would be a faster option we will arrange that instead.

HOW MUCH WILL HOME LIVING STORE CHARGE FOR DELIVERY?

After selecting the product that you wish to buy, our system will automatically generate various shipping options based on your location.

If we have any shipping promotions running, we will advertise them on the home page of the store. These promotions will show as a shipping option at checkout, along with our standard options. If you wish to use the shipping promotion, please select the option provide.

WHAT DOES 'FREE SHIPPING' MEAN FOR ME?

Free shipping means that Home Living Store will pay shipping charges for the relevant order. We find this makes the shopping experience easier for our customers..

We select a courier with acceptable standard delivery timeframes, from a list of options generated by our broker software. We reserve the right to choose, as customers in remote areas may incur a large shipping fee and we require the flexibility to choose a less expensive courier with longer timeframes, as long as they are still acceptable.

HOW CAN I TRACK MY ORDER?

When your order is collected from our warehouse by a courier, the tracking information will be sent to the phone or email address you provided. If you are unable to locate or don’t receive these updates, you can contact us on (08) 6295 0412 and we can locate your order using information you provided when you ordered, such as name, address and contact details.

For bulky or fragile items, the courier may contact you to arrange a suitable delivery time.

WILL I HAVE TO SIGN FOR MY DELIVERY?

Yes, our standard shipping arrangement requires you to sign a delivery form in which you confirm that the product was delivered in a suitable condition (without obvious defects or damage). If you would prefer your order to be left at the door, please find the notes section when placing an order and request this.

WHAT IF I AM NOT HOME WHEN MY PACKAGE ARRIVES?

If you are required to sign, our shipping partner will leave a notice at your home detailing an alternative delivery arrangement. If you have notified us that you would prefer your order to be left at the door, it will be left in a safe place as determined by the courier.

MY ITEMS HAVEN'T ARRIVED YET. WHAT CAN I DO?

As soon as your order has been dispatched we will send you a shipping confirmation to the phone and email address provided. Before contacting us directly, ensure that you check the delivery tracking status of your order.
If you believe the order is taking an unreasonable amount of time and the couriers are not helping you effectively, or if you do not receive any shipping confirmation or tracking status, please contact us at sales@homelivingstore.com.au or (08) 6295 0412.

For bulky and fragile items, the carrier may contact you to arrange a suitable delivery date.

HOW DO I CHANGE MY SHIPPING ADDRESS AFTER MY ORDER HAS BEEN PLACED?

Contact us at sales@homelivingstore.com.au or (08) 6295 0412, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE if you enter incorrect information. If the order is already collected by a courier, or we are unable to contact our warehouse manager before it is collected, there will most likely be additional charges.

We will first try to have the order redirected by the courier. If the courier charges for this, you must pay this charge to have the order redirected. If it is not possible to redirect, you may be required to wait for the order to be returned to sender, followed by paying a shipping fee to have it re-sent. In this case free shipping does not apply and any refund of the order would exclude the initial shipping fee (even if purchased under a free shipping promotion).

2. Brands & Stock

THE ITEM I WANT IS OUT OF STOCK. WHAT NOW?

We try to re-order products which have been popular, to avoid being out of stock, however this relies on many factors. We do occasionally pre-sell products before they arrive, so if you are interested in an item which is out of stock, or want to confirm whether we have stock of an item, please contact us on sales@homelivingstore.com.au or (08) 6295 0412.
We do not always re-stock products, depending on sales rates as well as whether suppliers and manufacturers have discontinued the product.

DO YOU PLACE ITEM(S) ON BACKORDER?

We never advertise products with the intention of them being on back-order. If we sell a product that is out of stock, it is an accident and we will notify you as soon as we try to process the order and realize (generally within 24 hours).

We occasionally pre-sell products, if this is the case it will be advertised on the product listing. We also send emails to all customer who order pre-sale products, to confirm that you are aware it is a pre-sale product.

CAN I PLACE AN ITEM ON HOLD FOR PURCHASE AT A LATER DATE?

Yes, we allow customers to order and we hold products for up to 45 days. In many cases this is due to circumstance such as moving home.
