Frequently Asked Questions
- (Q) - How quickly will you ship my order?
(A) - We have an 11am cut-off for same day dispatch. Any order placed and paid before 11am on weekdays, ships the same day. Otherwise orders ship on the next weekday. For urgent orders placed after 11am, consider our new 'Dispatched Today' shipping options with a 2pm cut-off. Australia Post eParcel and Express services only and there is a small extra charge for these services.You can find more helpful information at our Delivery Policy page.
- (Q) - When will I receive my order?
(A) - Orders ship primarily from our Canberra warehouse and delivery times depend on your location in relation to our warehouses and whether a standard or express service is selected. We now provide delivery estimates for each shipping service on our website, enter a postcode on either the product page or cart/checkout pages to get an estimate. Estimates are given in 'business days'.
- (Q) - Can I track my order?
(A) - The vast majority of our parcels are shipped with a service that has online tracking available. An email will be sent with the tracking details and carrier links in the evening on the day of shipment. Please check your spam or junk folder for tracking emails if not in your email inbox. Small items (such as cables less than 3m) may ship as a 'Letter' with Australia Post, and will not have tracking, though we find this service to be efficient and reliable.
- (Q) - My item has posted, can I change my address?
(A) - Although there are a few factors to take into consideration, in most instances addresses can be changed or updated after an order has shipped. With Australia Post and Couriers Please, the available options may change depending on the status of your order. Items scanned as "out for delivery" may not have the same options as items currently still "in transit". You can find out how to update your order on our Change Delivery Details page.
- (Q) - I have only received part of my order, when will I receive the remaining items?
(A) - If you ordered multiple, larger items - your order may have been split with different items shipping with separate consignment numbers and can be delivered on different days. Firstly, locate the email we have sent with your tracking numbers. If there is only 1 tracking number, follow the link to view the detailed tracking history and it should show that there are remaining 'articles' still to be delivered. Normally, they arrive the next day. If you have multiple tracking numbers, it means different carriers are delivering your order and items may be delivered a few days apart. Feel free to reach out to us for support on these matters if there is a long delay or you notice something odd with the tracking.
- (Q) - Are SWAMP products covered by warranty?
(A) - Yes, all products come with a minimum 1 year warranty. Certain branded products from Radial, MOTU and others, may come with an extended warranty from the manufacturer. We are also happy to assist customers to source parts or find solutions where possible if a product is outside of the warranty period. Start a warranty claim here.
- (Q) - Can I return a product after delivery?
(A) - Yes, we offer a 30 day return policy on all products, that covers change of mind or incorrect purchase, or if you find your product is not suitable for its intended purpose.
