Freight, Returns & Warranty
Dr. Ned’s Computer Store can ship to virtually any address in Australia. Most of our shipments are made directly by the distributor. This ensures the quickest delivery time possible with minimal delays and double handling. All of our vendors strive to ship your order in a timely fashion. Some items are made to order and therefore take longer to get to you. These items will normally be clearly marked as such on the specific product detail page. Occasionally due to circumstances beyond our control we may be out of stock of certain items and we may not have yet updated their product pages. In this case we will notify you of an estimated delivery date and give you the option of waiting for your items or receiving a full refund.
Delivery is by various couriers. Delivery times vary depending on the delivery address but as a general guide major cities and towns would be between 1-5 working days while more remote areas can take up to 10 working days. Deliveries can only be made where a signature to verify the delivery can be obtained. We understand that at times this would be difficult but it is necessary to protect all parties concerned. The best addresses are where someone is home between 7am and 6pm weekdays or a business address which is open during normal business hours. Usually if delivery cannot be made, Australia Post and couriers will leave a note to make another appointment or for you to pick up that item but this cannot be taken for granted. If delivery cannot be made you will be responsible for any delivery fees incurred even though you may not receive the item.
Incorrectly Ordered Goods
As a general rule we are unable to accept the return of goods that fall under these categories:
Change of mind
The reason for this policy is simply because our importers and suppliers will not accept returns from us, nor give us a credit. So we in turn must ad hear to the same policy.
So please choose and order carefully. If you are not sure what an item is for or if it is compatible please ask and we are happy to check on it for you
