VAPE SHARK AUSTRALIA
Welcome to Vape Shark Australia, on this page you are able to find out all the solutions for most common question that we got asked. If you still have concerns do not hesitate to contact us.
SHIPPING AND DELIVERY
If your order is experiencing delays, it’s likely due to the inclusion of batteries in your items, which are subject to Australia Post’s strict shipping policies. While we dispatched your parcel via express service, the presence of batteries means it has been transferred to road transport instead of air, in compliance with Australia Post’s regulations for safety.
At the sorting facilities, such parcels are automatically switched to road transport rather than air transport, despite being initially sent via express. This change significantly extends the delivery time, often making it slower than our standard shipping option.
Unfortunately, this is beyond our control, as it adheres to the company’s policy to ensure safety and compliance. For future orders, we recommend opting for standard post to avoid any significant delays, as it provides a more consistent timeframe for delivery under these conditions.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
