Smart Send Couriers
1. The Terms and Conditions of our Transport Contract
This Contract is between You, the person requesting transportation services and us, Smart Send. For details on Smart Send shipping terms click here.
Delivery is deemed to be effected when:
a) we receive a signed receipt or delivery docket, and/or
b) if that address is unattended, delivery is deemed to have occurred and we may leave the goods at that address unattended, and/or
c) if the address of delivery is unattended and we elect to re-deliver goods to you, the receiver or a third party/address, we will charge you for the costs of the re-delivery including any storage costs we may incur. You guarantee to pay any additional charges within seven (7) days of notification; d) a depot or regional agent does not service a regional location and the receiver must pickup from the local depot
6.2 We will not in any circumstance deliver goods to a post office box.
6.3 A ‘door to door’ service is not possible in some locations throughout Australia. (e.g. farms, addresses outside of regional towns, etc.)
Also, if goods are too heavy or large and a driver cannot safely pickup or deliver the goods on their own, the consignment must be dropped off or picked up from a local depot by the customer. Costs for this are to be borne by the customer.
Transport assurance can be added on frieght
For details on Smart Send assurance click here.
“Transport Assurance” can be added to your booking and will provide Cover against loss or damage to goods in transit. No excess is payable by the customer when a claim is paid.
A receiver signature on either a Proof of Delivery copy of the consignment-label, a sub-docket or an ‘electronic signature’ signifies the goods were delivered in full and not damaged in any way. If the goods are damaged the receiver must make a note stating this on the Proof of Delivery. If they have any doubts they MUST sign ‘Pending Inspection’ and cross out ‘Accepting the goods in good order’. If a ‘non-Receipted Delivery’ service is chosen and goods are left at the delivery address by the delivery driver (due to a receiver being unavailable to sign for the goods), this will also deem the goods to be delivered in full and not damaged in any way.
If the goods were damaged, you need to include a minimum of two digital photos of the damage to the goods. One photo needs to show the goods and the damage sustained. The second photo needs to show how the goods were packaged (box and packaging material).The package material must be retained for inspection. More than two photos is preferable.
You also need to attach a scanned image of the invoice (or other documented proof). Failure to provide this information will result in the Tranport Assurance claim becoming void.
These Australia Post Terms and Conditions are made pursuant to section 32(1)(b) of the Australian Postal Corporation Act 1989 and shall apply as from 1 July 2001 to the postal and related services to which they refer.
Provided, however, that where the General Postal Services Terms and Conditions (GPST&Cs) had applied prior to 1 July 2001 to a postal and related service, the GPST&Cs shall continue to apply and the amount of compensation payable in respect of articles lodged on or before 30 June 2001 for carriage under the General Postal Services Terms and Conditions shall be calculated in accordance with the provisions of Part X of those terms and conditions in force on that date.
Full terms & conditions of Australia Post are viewable via the Australia Post website.
