Delivery

Shipping lead times of your products will depend on a number of factors, such as:

  • Your location
  • Our partner delivery companies’ schedules
  • Product availability at our warehouse at the time of order

Shipping time frames differ Australia-wide. We work with a number of delivery partners and courier companies in order to deliver across the country. In some cases, this may be handed to a third-party to ensure remote areas can be accommodated. As soon as your order has arrived at our warehouse, we will notify you and you can book a delivery date yourself through the customer booking portal. You may contact our online teams via phone, live chat, or email to request an estimated arrival time frame or track your order.

Delivery costs will vary based on the item(s) itself, their size, weight, location of delivery address and delivery partners’ rates. The shipping fee can be determined by entering your listed products and address at checkout.

Currently Koala Living does not ship outside of Australia. We reserve the right to accept or decline orders to certain locations. However, you are more than welcome to email us at cs@koalaliving.com with the location and the products you are interested in purchasing for us to check if there are any alternative delivery options for you.

Unfortunately we are unable to deliver to PO boxes as our products are often too large. This also includes Parcel Lockers, GPO, Locker Bag and RMB addresses. Our products are delivered by independent courier/delivery companies and may require a signature upon delivery.

Unfortunately you will not be allowed to organise your own courier. You can contact cs@koalaliving.com to check if there is an alternate solution.

The default delivery fee quoted for online purchases includes a standard ground level drop-off only delivery service. If the order is being delivered to an apartment or building with access to a lift, the delivery fee will cover the delivery of the products inside the unit/apartment, provided there is sufficient lift and passage access for the furniture/goods.

We apologise that additional services cannot be requested on the delivery day itself and are available only for areas covered by our primary 3rd party delivery teams.

You can request to reschedule your delivery by visiting the following page with your email address and invoice number trackorder or contacting our online team via phone, live chat or email at least 72 hours prior to the confirmed delivery date. A re-delivery fee is applicable if you request changes after this time period or if the delivery fails, due to nobody being at the premises to receive the order or if the address details and/or contact details given to us were incorrect.

Our Deluxe Delivery service includes delivery to the room of your choice as well as assembly and packaging removal. Please note, this service does not include removal of unwanted furniture nor the hanging of wall fixtures. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure sufficient space is made prior to delivery of goods. This service will only appear for customers who live in a location where deluxe delivery is offered and it is within the category of products where the service can be offered. 

Please note: 
It is the customers responsibility to retain the original and complete packaging for requests of return for change of mind. The item must be returned to original packaging to be collected in the same manner as delivered. For large items unable to be returned to the original packaging, we will not accept these products back for return unless they are verified as incorrect, faulty or damaged on receipt of goods. We will not collect items for change of mind and return that have partial or damaged packaging, and will return them if we find they have been used, assembled or returned with missing components. 



Regretfully we cannot request a specific delivery time frame. Depending on the courier company associated with your order, you will either be provided a tracking link to locate the whereabouts of your order, or a confirmed delivery date and a three-four hour arrival window a day prior to your delivery.

You or somebody on your behalf (over the age of 18) must be present on the day of designated delivery. If you miss it, your order will be returned back to our warehouse and you will be able to request redelivery once the items are returned to our dispatch facility. (generally within 2-3 business days). Please note that a re-delivery fee is applicable in such circumstances, therefore, it is advisable to confirm a date only if you are available, or to reschedule at least 72 hours in advance if your availability changes. Please read our shipping policy for more details.

Unfortunately we only offer standard delivery. We work with a number of courier networks and depending on your postcode, delivery will either be booked with our in-house logistics team or a third-party courier company such as Allied Express, Aramex or Couriers Please.

For all orders being delivered via our internal team, you will be able to see a confirmed delivery date only under the ‘Track Order’ page in our website and will receive an estimated delivery time frame either the evening prior to or on the morning of delivery via text.

If your order is being delivered by one of the third-party services, you will receive an email from the shipment company with a tracking number and a link from where you will be able to track the whereabouts of your order once the order is dispatched.

We currently only offer furniture assembly to select postcodes in VIC, NSW, SA and QLD. You can contact our online team to inquire if this service is available in your area and request a quotation. Wall hanging installation is not included in this service and we would recommend you to arrange this with your local handyman.

Order pick ups are unfortunately unavailable due to showroom storage limitations. We are also unable to offer warehouse collection due to OHS protocol.
