What if my order has items that are in and out of stock?

If you have ordered items that are out of stock, your full order will be dispatched once all items are in stock and available to send. If you would like the in-stock items to be sent separately, an additional fee will be charged for the second shipment.

How will my order be shipped

Orders will be shipped using standard post, AusPost eParcel Regular Post or AusPost eParcel Express Post (or TNT Express for larger items). For applicable orders, once your order has been shipped,  you will receive an email with tracking information.   To ensure your items are delivered safely,  we require signature on delivery . 

All items are carefully packed to prevent any damage in transit. We use a combination of environmentally friendly cardboard twist mailers, cardboard boxes. tough cardboard envelopes and paper based protective wrapping to sure all items arrive safely. 

What if I am not home for delivery

If you are not at home at the time of delivery, Australia Post will leave a calling card and the parcel will be taken to your local post office for collection. For orders shipped with TNT, a calling card will be left requesting a call back to organise redelivery.

If you would like your parcel left without a signature, a ‘Safe Drop’ can be requested with Australia Post. This can be done from the email or SMS sent to you by AusPost when the order is despatched. Adlib Music cannot request a Safe Drop on your behalf and will not include any notes on the parcel requesting the order to be left without a signature. If you request to have your package left without signature using ‘Safe Drop’,  Adlib Music will not be held responsible for packages that are then lost or stolen.

How quickly will you ship my order?

For items in stock, dispatch will be within 1-2 business days.  We will endeavour to send any orders placed before 10:00am on the same day, but cannot guarantee this will occur.

If you have ordered items that are out of stock, your full order will be dispatched once all items are in stock and available to send. If you wish to receive your out of stock items as soon as possible, an additional fee will be charged for the second shipment. We will contact you within 24 hours to let you know the ETA for stock and to determine how you would like your order sent.  If your order is urgent we recommend contacting us before placing your order so that we can give you an ETA.
