Our Shipping Policy
At southcoastmusic we are committed to getting your items to you as quickly, safely and cheaply as possible. We offer free shipping on most items and to most locations. Some exceptions apply. Large bulky goods and delivery to remote areas are likely to incur a freight cost. If a charge is applicable – because of the high volume of parcels we deliver, our freight rates are extremely favourable. In some instances we may need a business address or you will have to pick your item up from the local freight depot.
If a listing does not have delivery included in its buy price please contact us for an obligation free quote on delivery.

We know that you will want to take delivery of your item as soon as possible once you have paid for it. We can provide an estimated delivery time based on the postcode you provide. While we will send your item promptly, we have no control over the Couriers, Common Carriers, Australia Post and any other organisation that may play a part in the delivery of your item.
Deliveries to most East Coast Cities and major regional centres should take approximately 3-5 working days. Deliveries to West Australia, the Northern Territory and areas classed as remote will take longer. please be aware that deliveries to some remote areas such as far north West Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland can take more than two weeks.
Weekends, Public Holidays and natural disasters will also affect Delivery times. If you require an item to be delivered on a particular day, contact us first to discuss your options and avoid disappointment. Please note that Australia Post’s Platinum or Express Delivery does not guarantee next day delivery to all locations.
Please call 02 4421 8688, 02 4421 8288 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any questions.

Proof of identity will be required in these circumstances.
We DO NOT offer Unattended Delivery.
Please note that Risk and Title in the goods passes to the recipient upon delivery of the goods once delivered and signed for to their nominated Delivery Address. Transit insurance also expires once the goods have been delivered. It should also be noted that Delivery to a business address may speed up the Delivery time.

You have the option to purchase transit insurance to the value of the item/s purchased. Insurance charges vary from item to item and are very reasonable. If you are unsure, please contact us for more information or an obligation free quote.
We recommend that Transit insurance be purchased when you pay for your item as we are unable to cover for any damage in transit or lost packages. Transit insurance also expires once the goods have been delivered.
