covid-19 update

Here is what you need to know in this evolving situation.

 

we are still open

Our online store is still open with orders being dispatched daily Monday-Friday. We are taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of staff and the timely delivery of orders.

 

Delivery Delays

Due to increased demand and social distancing in our fulfillment warehouse orders are taking longer than usual to be dispatched. Social distancing and a reduction in air freight capacity is also causing a delay across the AusPost and Startrack networks, with deliveries to some areas delayed an additional 7-10 business days from the normal delivery time frame (usually 2-7 business days from dispatch).

 

Mother's Day Delivery

For your best chance of delivery in time for Mother's Day we recommend;

Standard shipping by Sunday April 26
Express shipping for Sydney metro by Sunday May 3
Express shipping for rest of Australia by Thursday April 30

 

Please note these timings are an estimate only and you may experience longer delivery times due to AusPost or Startrack delivery issues that are unforeseen or unavoidable beyond our reasonable control. For up to date information please refer to the AusPost website here: https://auspost.com.au/about-us/news-media/important-updates/coronavirus/coronavirus-domestic-updates#deliveries

Please understand the above is subject to change as the situation is evolving daily, however we will do our best to keep our customers informed.

 

contactless delivery

For the time being, Australia Post and Startrack are no longer requiring a signature on delivery or collection. Instead of a signature the postie will ask and record the customer's name and acknowledge delivery in their system. If the receiver is not present, Australia Post orders will be returned to the local Post Office. Upon collection the staff member will ask and record the customer's name, but no signature is required. Startrack deliveries (this includes any orders containing Fragrance Diffusers or Eau de Parfums) will attempt two deliveries. If no one is present to receive the delivery the order will be returned to sender. Once the order is received back into our system the customer will be refunded (approximately 10 working days).

For more information please visit the Australia Post and Startrack websites.

 

Customer Service

Our customer service team are available to answer any questions that you may have. We have a team online who are working from home from 9am-9pm AEDT Monday - Friday via help@glasshousefragrances.com.au. Please note our Head Office is currently closed and calls will be directed to contact our online team.

 

our sydney factory

The health, safety and wellbeing of our people is our top priority. We are following the recommendations of the World Health Organisation and the Australian Government to ensure the actions we take are comprehensive and suitable. Across our Sydney factory we have increased our daily cleaning routines, including more frequent hand washing, use of sanitiser and cleaning of equipment. We have also ramped up production to ensure adequate stocks of your favourite products in the event that our manufacturing is interrupted for a period of time.
