Our facility consitst of a factory and a warehouse with a dispatch area which is an unsafe environment for customers to visit.

- Once production has been completed, you’ll be sent a notification that your order has been shipped out to you, along with your tracking number and link if applicable.
What happens if my item is damaged in transit?
We send out hundreds of products a week, much of which is glass or fragile wood and acrylic. Given this we have perfected our packaging procedure and as a result, breakages are very rare, but they do happen. If your order is broken in transit simply send us a photo of the broken product and we will organise to get a replacement out to you at our expense.
How do I know if the products I’d like to order are in stock?
LilyCraft strives to keep all items in stock in adequate quantities to meet your needs; however like with all retail businesses, some stock will sometimes run low faster than expected. If an item you have ordered is unavailable in the advertised time frame, our staff will contact you as soon as we are aware of this to let you know and provide you with the option to replace or refund/credit your order as you wish. Items on our website listed as "Available" are to the best of our knowledge, available to ship to you within the advertised time frame.
I'm in a rural location. Will this delay my order delivery?
We use a courier service to deliver your products to you, which makes shipping fast to most locations but if you live in Tasmania, Northern Territory, Western Australia or in a rural location, we recommend you leave at least 7-14 days shipping time for bulky goods on top of our standard delivery times. We can get your items to you fast even in a rural location, but as the courier will charge us a fee for this, we will contact you to discuss the quote before we process your order.
Are the online transactions secure?
LilyCraft assures that all transactions conducted online are completely secure. Our website uses SSL to encrypt all of your personal information. We use strong security measures to prevent the loss, misuse and alteration of your information once it is in our records.
My items have been lost in the mail. What should I do?
The first thing to do is contact Australia Post with your consignment note number handy. If your parcel cannot be located by Australia Post, we will lodge an enquiry from this end for you.
If you order in bulk (for example, over 25 favours), we will contact you to let you know the timeframe for delivery if we do not have enough stock in our warehouse for immediate dispatch. Some bulk orders may take up to 6 weeks to reach us, and then we will dispatch your order to you. Please allow extra time for delivery if you live outside a metropolitan area.
