How are shipping costs calculated?

Shipping costs are based on a combination of your delivery location, item weights and sizes. Some larger items are considered ‘Big & Bulky’ by couriers and these may attract a higher shipping cost.

Do you ship internationally?

We do not currently offer delivery for online orders outside of Australia.

Has my order been dispatched?

You can check the status of your online orders by logging in to your account here and viewing the Orders tab. Once your order has been dispatched, you will receive a notification with tracking information to the email address you provided on your order.

How do I find the tracking information for my order?

Once your order has been dispatched, to locate the tracking number, log in to your account and click on the relevant order number within the Orders tab. The tracking information will be located with the delivery address for your order. If available, clicking the tracking ID will take you to the courier’s site where you may track your order.

How long will it take for my order to be delivered?

In stock orders typically take 1-5 business days to be dispatched from our Melbourne facility. Delivery times will vary depending on your location within Australia. If for some reason your order is not able to be dispatched on time, our Customer Service Team will be in contact with you.

Please note we strongly recommend providing ‘Authority to Leave’ during checkout if you may not be available to sign for the delivery, as the delivery day cannot be guaranteed. It is the receiver’s responsibility to organise re-delivery or collection from courier outlets/depots if a parcel is not able to be delivered. Orders containing elfa items may take up to an additional 5 business days to be dispatched and our Customer Service Team will advise if further delays are expected.

My order is showing as delivered but I have not received it.

We’re sorry to hear you have not received your order. Please double check your tracking information, delivery address and instructions provided during checkout and then contact our Customer Service Team at if you require further assistance.

What is an oversized item (Big & Bulky)?

These items are typically over 1 metre in length and/or are considered bulky based on their shipping size/volume. These items may incur a higher delivery fee and cannot be delivered by Australia Post or taken/redirected to a Post Office if you are not available to receive the goods at the time of delivery.

We strongly recommend providing ‘Authority to Leave’ for Big & Bulky items as they may be difficult to collect/transport from a courier outlet/depot. In most cases, if you have ordered a Big & Bulky item and have not provided ‘Authority to Leave’ our Customer Service Team will be in contact with you to confirm delivery details before we dispatch your order.

Do you offer Click & Collect?

Howards Storage World does not currently offer a Click and Collect service, however you can contact our stores here to confirm whether they have an item in stock for you to purchase.

Online Returns

Products can be returned for an exchange or refund within 30 days of purchase at store, or delivery of online purchases, to any Howards Storage World store or our Online store. Products being returned must be unused, in a re-saleable condition in their original packaging and proof of purchase must be provided.

Please note, return shipping costs and the safe transit of products being returned or exchanged are the responsibility of the customer. Original shipping costs are not refundable.
