Shipping & Returns

Delivery Information 

Here at The Basket People our company policy is to be as honest and transparent with our customers as possible.

There is no such thing as a "free lunch" and there is no such thing as "free freight" either. We do not buffer our margins to incorporate shipping costs. Our couriers charge us regardless of around the corner or to another corner of Australia. As with all freight companies be that Australia Post or our local couriers it is dependant on destination and weight.

We have however negotiated the best rates we can for safe and prompt delivery of your gifts.

We are currently updating this website to clearly state shipping costs for each gift available

The Basket People make each and every hamper or gift fresh to order. Please consider this in the madness of Christmas and Easter. 

Freight amount is calculated on destination per basket - usually between $9.00 and $35.50 (for remote areas of Australia), and very heavy gifts. Quantity orders will receive a discount which we will notify you of via email if applicable. Gifts are shipped on the day of order (with the exception of the Christmas rush) for same day delivery to Sydney and surrounding major areas (depending on time of order), most eastern seaboard areas are next day delivery. The Basket People only use quality couriers delivering door to door, including Australia Post. All hampers are insured for your protection. We recommend a work delivery address for the recipient as most people are not home during the day to receive their gift. If the recipient is not home and the courier feels that it is not safe to leave the gift, you may incur an additional fee for another delivery.  

 If you believe your Gift has been damaged in transit, please return it in the condition it arrived in to The Basket People at PO Box 1526 Baulkham Hills NSW 1755. We will not accept photos as proof of damage. You have 7 (seven) days in which to return any damaged hampers to us. Once your hamper has been returned a full refund will be credited to your account.
