Shipping Frequently Asked Questions

All orders are shipped and dispatched from our facility in Mount Barker, SA. Orders with items displayed as ‘in stock’ on our site are processed and shipped next day. With the Exclusion of weekends and public holidays.

We can only ship Small Accessories to PO Boxes, while larger items like Next Boxes and other accessories must be shipped to residential or commercial addresses due to their size. Unfortunately, we’re unable to accommodate custom delivery requests such as scheduling specific delivery dates and times, leaving the package in a particular location, or calling in advance or on arrival. These requests can only be accommodated if a customer organises freight collection and services themselves.

The packaging should ensure that the product arrives in brand-new, perfect condition. Nestyboxes takes great care to ensure that the product is dispatched from our facility in perfect condition. Even though we hope it won't, if an item is harmed in transit or a portion of your delivery is missing, kindly let us know as soon as you can after receiving your order by contacting us using the information on our Contact page.

When placing an order, you have the choice to select "authority to leave" during the checkout process (ATL). In this case, without a signature being required, our shipping carriers will leave the delivery at your unattended location. It's important to understand that this delivery method carries no guarantee against loss or damage, and neither NestyBoxes nor the shipping companies we work with cannot be held responsible for it.
It might not always be possible for the shipping carrier to leave a package with ATL instructions, though. This might happen, for example, if the delivery address is inside a secure building or complex and appropriate access to the address is not possible, or if there are insufficient instructions regarding where to leave the delivery.
