Shipping & Delivery
At Horgans we pride ourselves on ensuring your orders are packaged with the highest of standards and delivered by a select group of freight carriers. As these are unprecedented times there are likely to be shipping delays which are out of our control and we apologies for any inconvenience caused. Currently all NSW deliveries will be drop-off only, at the front door. White-glove service is not available until further notice.
Orders are processed Monday to Friday (ex public holidays). Orders received on weekends or holidays will be processed the next business day. Handling times for all orders are generally 3 – 4 business days from the time of order. Slight delays may occur during holiday, sale periods or during COVID restrictions.
A dispatch confirmation email including a track and trace number will be sent once the order has been dispatched. All deliveries are made by registered courier and will require a signature, unless you provide authority to leave.

DELIVERY OF GOODS
All goods are delivered ex-warehouse. Horgans will arrange a freight company to deliver to the purchaser’s address, unless the purchaser states otherwise or selects, when ordering the click and collect service from the St Peters, NSW warehouse. Goods are not shipped from our Brisbane and Melbourne showrooms. Liability passes to the purchaser upon delivery of the goods to the designated address of the purchaser. Liability passes to the purchaser ex-warehouse, if purchaser organises freight ex-warehouse.
Freight is payable at checkout, therefore freight costs are the responsibility of the purchaser, and are additional to the cost of goods sold.
The purchaser must sign for the number of cartons received upon delivery. Horgans will not be held responsible for cartons signed for, but not received. If upon delivery cartons are damaged, we ask that you please mark the consignment note and notify Horgans immediately. Please note that bulky and fragile items require specialist carriers and may take longer to reach nominated destinations. Orders will only be sent directly to purchaser’s client at Horgans discretion.
If the goods are to be delivered to a location other than ground level, then sufficient access must be available by staircase or lift. If delivery cannot be made to the location specified due to the nature of the premises, insufficient access, incorrect detail regarding the access provided or unavailable to meet the delivery, the customer will be liable for all additional costs incurred. If the item(s) is(are) returned, the customer is liable for all additional delivery costs and restocking fees.
