*All orders are shipped in unmarked boxes to maintain your privacy.

All orders are shipped via Australia Post, TNT Express Delivery, DHL International or Couriers Please. We endeavour to dispatch products on the day of order if possible. Please allow for additional delivery time for remote areas. If you need an express service, contact our sales representatives and we can provide a quote for your requested service.

Please make sure someone will be available to receive your order, otherwise your package may be returned to us. For a price estimate and tracking please contact us. Cheques and non-Australian Postal Money Orders may be held up to 2 weeks for clearance and then the order will be processed and shipped. We do not charge handling fees.

Please note: Some items (grow mediums, value packs, etc.) require a custom quote when shipped via Air Road Direct, Australia Post or Couriers Please, and are charged by 'Dimensional Weight'. As a result, we reserve the right to amend the shopping cart calculated shipping charges to actual charges. We will notify you if this situation occurs.

If an item runs out of stock before your order is processed, a refund will be automatically issued back to your account within two to three business days, unless otherwise directed i.e. specialised items. We will contact you if this unlikely situation occurs.

Fran’s Hydroponics only ship goods to the cardholder's address or the confirmed address in your PayPal account.

Please do not ask us to leave parcels, again due to card security. In case of difficulty please contact us and ask about morning and Saturday deliveries, which will incur an extra charge.

The courier will attempt delivery to the specified address. If the customer is unable to sign for the product an ‘Attempted Delivery’ slip will be provided to inform the customer of the necessary procedures to arrange redelivery.

We reserve the right to charge for any redeliveries if you are not present at the delivery address on the delivery date stated in your confirmation email. You may also call to schedule a delivery for a specific day if needed.
