Packaging and Timeframes
Teddys are generally delivered within the week. We don't guarantee this and time vary depending on our workload. If you need your gift urgently, mention the date you need it by on your order. We'll do our best to get it there.
Within Australia parcels are sent Express and Registered with tracking.
Overseas is by Air Mail (no tracking is available for this service). Once posted they can take 1-2 weeks (unless to countries that have slow postal systems like South Africa)
Deliveries within Australia require a signature and we can deliver to homes, businesses, PO Boxes, hospitals etc.
You can request for your teddy to be left somewhere with no signature, just request this on your order.
Only do this if it safe to do so, and of course this is at your own risk. If you choose this option we can track your bear to a certain point, but can't be responsible for any that go missing. Signiture is the safest way.
Covid 19 - Shipping delays possible.
Just a note about Australia post services under pandemic times.
Due to more people shopping online under social distancing conditions, Australia Post has seen a huge increase in workload.
Combine this with far less commercial flight services, which freight generally travels on, and you can imagine that there are going to be delays.
Now that Easter has passed, this should ease a little, but there will be continued delays to all postal services.
Please take this into consideration when ordering and order early if you know a special date is coming up.
Although My Teddy will continue to send express and registered, items may not arrive in the usual speedy times that we’re so proud of.
Please order well ahead of time if you can, to avoid disappointment, and remember that we’re all doing our best under new and challenging conditions.
INTERNATIONAL: Please see updates on Australia Posts site at https://auspost.com.au/about-us/news-media/important-updates/coronavirus/coronavirus-international-updates . Currently significant delays to countries outside of Australia. For example NZ taking about 3 weeks and Europe at least 8 weeks. On the link it shows that some countries not evening having deliveries right now. Contact us https://www.myteddy.com.au/Contact/Contact-377/ to ask about where you would like to send to outside of Australia if you like, as we are keeping across updates daily.
Thanks for your continued understanding, be kind to each other, and stay safe out there.?? Chris & Toni
