Stock availability and rainchecks
At Altronics we endeavour to ensure stock availability concurrent with the life of advertisements. Should we experience an unexpected delay or should stocks quickly sell out or be unavailable for any reason we undertake to issue a "raincheck", i.e. back-order at the price advertised. Where advertised items are clearly endorsed as limited supply quantities we may not be able to supply at advertised special rates once stock is sold out.
Transit Insurance (Aust. Only)
Is available at the rate of $1.00 per $100 order value, i.e. with an order of $139.00 insurance would be $2.00 as would an order of $195.00. Minimum insurance $1.00. Insurance covers you against loss or damage whilst in transit and is strongly recommended for fragile items, e.g. loudspeakers. When ordering by mail please nominate insurance and include the amount as described. We do not insure your order unless you nominate. When ordering by phone you will be asked to nominate or decline insurance.
Goods Lost or Damaged in Transit
If you have nominated insurance contact us. Not withstanding this you may have a claim against the carrier if negligence can be proven on their behalf. If you suspect your order may have arrived damaged, i.e. carton crushed or obviously dropped, take the matter up with the carrier. We recommend you do not open the parcel except in the presence of the carrier, e.g. to verify the existence of damage or otherwise.
We are happy to accept orders from customers outside of Australia. Please contact us with your requirements and we can provide freight options and charges. Please note all freight rates quoted are for Australia or NZ/PNG only.
Should any item ordered be temporarily unavailable (valued over $10), we automatically place this on back order. If this is inconvenient please advise upon receipt of partial shipment or when placing the order.
30 day convenience credit accounts are available to schools, universities and government institutions. We do not run accounts for private companies or individuals.
