Australian Domestic Shipping Policy

Thank you for visiting and shopping at Hot Cut Laser and Plasma Art. Following are the terms and conditions that constitute our Shipping Policy.

Order processing time

Our current order processing times are 2-3 business days for MDF orders and 7 business days for powder coated steel orders. During peak seasons such as Easter, Mothers Day, Fathers Day and Christmas, these processing times may extend to no greater than our maximum processing times as listed in the table below. If we expect a longer than usual processing time, we will get in contact with you.

If your order requires an approval of a design proof, please expect that our processing times will be extended by the amount of time it takes between the submission of the proof to you and us receiving the approval to proceed with your order. If you are expecting a design proof, please ensure that you check your inbox regularly. Our email correspondence can also find itself in your Junk or Spam filters, so please check those folders as well. It is recommended that you also provide us with a contact number when placing your order as we will contact you by phone if we fail to hear back from you when we contact you via email.

Shipping rates & delivery estimates

Shipping charges for your order will be calculated and displayed at checkout.

Delivery estimates are an estimate only. We have no control over our shipping providers and as such we can only provide guarantees that your order will be shipped within a certain time frame.

Our shipping rates operate on a flat rate policy which allows us to offer the best possible rate for shipping to all of our customers. We reserve the right to change the shipping method on an order from express to regular post if your item exceeds 2kg in weight or if you are in a location deemed by Australia Post as regional. This will only occur if the cost of posting express exceeds an acceptable amount corresponding to your total order value. If we do change your postage method, you are entitled to a refund of the difference between the value charged for Express post and the charge for regular post.

With the current COVID-19 situation, we are finding that Australia Post are experiencing shipping delays for Victoria and Western Australia. Australia Post has currently suspended the Express Post next business day delivery guarantee. Express post can be regarded as a priority mail service but nothing more.
