How will my parcel be sent?
At Bark Control Australia we utilize the Australia Post E-Parcel System to deliver all our products. If your order is especially urgent you can choose to have your parcel shipped Express Parcel Post for faster delivery. Due to the value of some of our products we require a signature at collection. Alternatively a slip will be left and the parcel collected from your nearest Post Office.
When will my product be dispatched?
If your order is placed before 3.30pm AEST on any business day your parcel will be dispatched that same day! This means that we can ship to over 75 % of Australia overnight if Express Parcel Post is chosen as your shipping method.
How long will my order take to be delivered?
This depends on when you place your order, your location and the method of delivery you choose. 75% of the population can have orders overnight if ordered before 3.30pm AEST that same business day. Alternatively remote areas can take up to 7 business days for delivery.
Items that are on back order will be dispatched as soon as possible upon the arrival of the item. Large items like kennel runs need to be shipped by independent heavy freight carriers and delivery times may vary.
