Pickup & Delivery

Delivery Timeframe

The timeframe of order deliveries vary depending on the items you have ordered. Generally, Arova has very fast turnaround time in getting your order ready for collection by transport companies. However due to the COVID, many transport companies have increased orders and reduced processing capacity at the moment. As a result, you may expect longer delivery time during this period.

If you have ordered small items only, you can expect your order is processed and dispatched by our warehouse within the next two business day after we have received the full payment. However, if the items you ordered are over weight, bulky, fragile or requiring a pallet packaging, it may require extra time to prepare your order to ensure the package is road worthy or arrange a tailgate truck for pick up. In addition, if you have ordered special ordered items, you may expect longer time as we can only dispatch your order when the items delivered to our warehouse by our suppliers.

If you have ordered an item as Pre-Order or made-to-order, the standard time frame will not apply. This can be generally between 2-12 weeks or as agreed. The Estimated Time of Arrive (ETA) on the website is indicative only. It is correct at the time when we have placed the order with the supplier. However, the ETA can change without prior notice. We apologise that we will not be able to offer a definitive date for all pre ordered item as delays are quite common in international shipping at this stage. Please do not book your installers until you have received the items in good condition on site.

The standard delivery time frame is based on the assumption that you have ordered correct items, made full payment, have provided Arova a deliverable address and attend the delivery when required. For example, if you have supplied an incorrect address or a PO box for a bulky item, you will expect a delayed dispatching as our customer service team needs to contact you to confirm a deliverable address.

Delivery time will also vary depending on your location, the dispatching centres we use, the size and number of items, and the delivery schedules of the carrier. The estimated delivery times below are based on Carrier’s standards and our observations. This is NOT a delivery time guarantee.

In most cases, the average delivery times we observe for small items that do not require being shipped on a pallet are:

Areas Delivery Time Frame    

Melbourne, Inner Victoria, Albury, Wodonga, Central Coast, Sydney, Adelaide - Metro Only

2-3 business days

ACT, QLD SE, NSW - Metro Only

3-4 business days

VIC Regional, Outer VIC, NSW Regional, TAS, SA (other than Adelaide)

3-5 business days

QLD (except Far North QLD), Perth

5-8 business days

Far North QLD, WA, NT

8-12 business days


Palletised goods with depot collection method generally require extra 3 business days for dispatch and delivery booking. All bulky or fragile items and over weight items will be packed on a pallet for shipping. This includes but not limited to vanities, bath tubs, toilet suites and any items weighs over the limited by OH&S requirement or can't be safely handled by one person. 

The destination depot will also need 1-3 business days to inspect the order prior to checking in to their system. The depot will contact you for collection when the package has been inspected and added to their system.

Please note, all depots offering depot collection order pickups are independent businesses and are not affiliated businesses of Arova. Therefore, all depots have different operating hours and the order collections will only be available during their operating hours. Most depots do not offer weekend or after hours order collection. Arova has no capacity to control the operating hours of each depot. If you wish to see the list of depots available, you may go to the page below. Please be advised that Arova takes no responsibility if the actual operating hours of a depot is different from the list below.

Once your item arrives your local depot, you will have 1 week's time to collect your order. After one week, the depot may charge storage fees for up to $20 per day. 

Delivery Fees & Surcharges

Delivery costs vary between products and are calculated based on the size and weight, the cubic weight of your total order and destination.

A simple way to estimate what the delivery cost of your order would be is to select the items you want to buy, add them to the shopping cart and estimate the shipping cost on the cart page. For palletised goods that generally requires forklift operation when taking receipt of the delivery, we recommend that you choose 'Depot Collection'. Under this method, your order is shipped to a distribution company that is close to you and you collect the goods from them. In this way, you will not require forklift at your end while maintain the shipping cost low. However, please be advised that the depots are businesses independent from Arova and operated at their own business hours that are different from Arova's. They will not offer after-hour or weekend collections.

All home deliveries are made to ground floor only.  All drivers will not For a delivery to a multi story building the driver will not travel past the front door on the ground floor. For bulky or palletised orders, you will be liable to unload the goods from the delivery vehicle unless you have selected a delivery with tailgated truck. For a tailgated truck delivery, the truck will only be able to unload the pallet where they have access. And the driver will not unload items from the pallet for you.

Further charges will be applicable in the following situations and you agree that Arova pass on these charges to you:

  • A tailgate truck or 2 men delivery required - this will be the actual surcharge invoice from the transport company, it is estimated to be around $275.
  • Re-delivery or changes to delivery address after job booked with a courier company - this will incur a surcharge of $35 for small items and $165 for palletised items.
  • The driver attempted delivery without success due to incorrect/ insufficient address, your non attendance, unable to access the premise, and etc - this will incur a 'Futile Delivery' charge of $165 for palletised goods and $35 for small goods.

Order Dispatching & Tracking  

Most items are in inventory and are ready for dispatch from our warehouses in Melbourne. A small portion of items need to be ordered from a distributors or a supplier. This will require 3-5 business days of handling time. Your order will be dispatched when the stock is received. Alternatively we may choose to dispatch some items in your order directly from our suppliers.

In addition, the driver will not be able re-direct your delivery to another location if you are not available to attend the delivery.
