Online Pet Cart takes care when packaging any item but does not take any responsibility for damage during transit. If you believe an item to be damaged please contact us immediately or speak with the Australia Post Retailer. This is best done before signing for your consignment or must be done as soon as you notice the damage, you will need your order ID when calling and you must have paid for insurance on your order for any claim to be considered.

EParcel postage fees vary on items over 500grms (per kilo charges apply on top of base rate based on your location), items under 500grms have a flat rate of $7.50 Australia wide only. Online Pet Cart reserves the right to change prices for delivery at any time.

If your order exceeds the weight of 22kg using eParcel, an additional base rate will apply. For example, your order weighs 26kg, for Brisbane this would then cost a total of $15 for delivery. $8.50 for the first 22kg plus $8.50 for next 4kg but up to 22kg.
