Shipping Policy

Shipping Methods

We are pleased to be able to offer our customers a number of shipping options. For more information please see below.

Free Shipping

Free shipping is available on all orders site-wide. Orders under $50 will be shipped via Australia Post's standard service which is un-trackable. - orders sent using this method are not guaranteed to arrive before Chritmas!

Orders over $50 will be sent via e-Parcel or Courier and are able to be tracked online. For orders under $50, a Trackable option is available at checkout for a flat rate of $9.50.

Currently Australia Post is experiencing delays with their standard post service and many parcels are taking up to and over 2 weeks to arrive. If you choose this method please be patient. If you need your item urgently please consider a paid shipping option.

Express Delivery

Where 'Express Delivery' is selected at checkout, orders will be shipped via either Australia Posts 'Express Post' service or via Courier. Express Delivery does not mean, nor guarantee overnight or next day delivery. Delivery times are set by our carriers and Fine Music can take no responsibility for shipments that may experience some delay. Items with availability showing 'online' only are in stock at our suppliers warehouse. These items will be either shipped directly to the customer or be shipped to Fine Music before processing. These items may experience a delay of 48 hours before dispatch to the customer. Fine Music will select the most appropriate carrier and service on an order by order basis.

Dispatch and Shipping Addresses

Orders will be dispatched from Hawthorn, VIC by Toll Ipec, Start Track Express, or Australia Post. In some cases, customers in Metro Melbourne may have their orders delivered by Fine Music staff. Some orders may be dispatched directly from our supplier's warehouse in order to shorten delivery time. Please allow up to 2 business days for dispatch and 2-8 working days for delivery. Orders are covered by transit insurance. It is your responsibility to supply us with your correct shipping address. Couriered items cannot be sent to PO Box addresses.

Items sent by courier are delivered during business hours and may require a signature for confirmation of delivery. We therefore strongly recommend you nominate a WORK ADDRESS or similar for shipping. If there is no-one at the delivery address when the courier attempts delivery, you may be charged a re-delivery fee.

We ask you for a valid shipping address, email address, and your best contact phone number during checkout.

Items Damaged in Transit

DO NOT sign for a package if you suspect it is damaged. Signing for an item means it has been received in good order, and any damage is no longer the courier's responsibility. If your item is damaged, you must call us (03 9818 8520) or email us ( to notify us within 24 hours. So we can help you best, please include your name, address, items ordered and a brief description of the apparent damage. All items will be assessed by us on a case by case basis.

Parcel Tracking

In most cases, small and low-value items will be sent via Australia Post. Tracking is not available on all Australia Post services. Goods sent by courier can be tracked using the usual "track-and-trace" feature on courier websites. You should receive tracking information directly from the carrier once the shipment has been dispatched by Fine Music.

Request for Additional Identification

For some high-value orders, we may ask you to provide additional identification to confirm credit card information. You will be notified by us by telephone or email if this confirmation is required. We appreciate your understanding as we try to minimise fraudulent transactions.

Subject to the requirements of law, Fine Music will not refund or exchange an item if you change your mind; please consider your purchases carefully.

If your item is found to be faulty due to a manufacturing defect, and is within the manufacturer's warranty period, Fine Music will repair or replace your item. See the Returns Procedure below. If your item cannot be repaired or replaced, we may offer you a store credit or issue a refund.

Items found to be faulty due to abuse, mishandling or any sort of misuse will not qualify for warranty repair or replacement.

Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonable foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
