Local Delivery FAQs:

How long will it take for my parcel to be delivered on the Local Delivery option?

Local deliveries may be delivered the same day and the maximum delivery time is 2 business days.

Do I need to be home to receive the delivery?

By default, parcels within our Free Local Delivery program are sent as Authority to leave. That means that our drivers doesn't need to obtain a signature when delivering the parcels. In case no one is at home when our drivers attempt to deliver, they will contact the recipient by phone and SMS and will leave the parcel in a safe place, where is not visible from the street.

Gourmet World Foods is not liable for any loss or damage to the parcel for the orders sent as Authority to leave. Consider to specify clear delivery instructions to minimise risks if no one is at home or opt for a standard paid delivery at checkout.

In case of a failed attempt of local delivery because no one is at home and our drivers couldn't find a safe place to leave the parcel, the order will be considered a standard delivery and the corresponding shipping costs will apply to complete the delivery. Alternatively, you can opt for a refund of the order amount less a delivery fee of $6 to cover our first attempt of delivery.

Please note that we can't deliver local orders with postage free to PO Boxes and/or Parcel Lockers. You will always need a residential address to meet the eligibility criteria for our Free Local Deliveries.

Our driver will leave your order at your door or where requested, will ring or knock and then step back at least 1.5 metres until the parcel is collected.
