SHIPPING & RETURNS
SHIPPING WITHIN AUSTRALIA
All web orders within Australia are shipped via either Australia Post or Fastway Couriers depending on the region and delivery address. If you would prefer one method, please make a note of your preference in the comments section of your order.
We dispatch daily (Monday to Friday). All orders will leave the warehouse within 2 business days.
SHIPPING OUTSIDE OF AUSTRALIA
We can now ship to South East Asia and New Zealand, and offer flat rates of between $20 - $50 depending on your location and the weight of the order. Please check out the rate for your order at check out. We are also very happy to hear from you if you have suggestions and preferred shipping methods.
Any items posted outside of Australia are posted at the buyers liability. Budd takes no responsibility for orders lost in transit when posting internationally.
It is your obligation to enter the correct delivery address details at the time of ordering. Should you enter the wrong address, we are not obliged to re-send the order to the correct address at our expense. If requested, we will provide you with an estimated date for delivery of all parcels. While we make every effort to deliver by this time, all dates specified are estimates only. We have aligned ourselves with delivery companies who we believe will do their best to deliver products in the best condition and by the estimated delivery date.
PARCEL DOES NOT ARRIVE
It is the responsibility of the customer to inform Budd if an order does not arrive. Once we learn an order has not arrived by the due date, we will lodge enquiries with the delivery company to ensure delivery occurs as soon as possible. We will not be held liable for any loss or damage resulting from late delivery.
Please note that if an item has been lost in transit, we will not dispatch a replacement item immediately. Replacement items will be dispatched solely at our discretion.

Without limiting the operation of any other Terms and Conditions herein, we will not accept liability for any loss or damage arising from a late delivery. Late delivery does not constitute a failure of our agreement and does not entitle you to cancellation of an order.
Without limiting the operation of any other Terms and Conditions herein, we will not accept liability for any loss or damage arising from items lost, stolen or damaged after delivery has taken place.
