Forty Winks reserve the right to correct any errors or misprints relating to Products displayed on the Site (included after such Products have been ordered). 

Delivery of Products

Although every effort is made to deliver your order according to the estimated delivery times provided, estimated ship times may change due to changes in supply, warehousing locations, public holidays or circumstances beyond our control. Products ordered through the Site will only be delivered to a location where we can provide a delivery service. You may receive multiple deliveries for your order.

If your Product has not arrived after the estimated delivery time, please contact the Forty Winks Store responsible for fulfilling your order.

Forty Winks will make every effort to deliver your product according to the estimated delivery times and payment processing identified at checkout. Estimated delivery times are in business days and exclude public holidays.

We or our delivery company may need to contact you via telephone to arrange a delivery date and timeframe for certain products.

The delivery fee for your order will depend on:

(a)   the type of Product you order;

(b)   how far you are from the dispatch centre linked to the Forty Winks Store that is responsible for fulfilling your order; and

(c)    how many people are required to carry the product items to the room you require them in.

At the time of placing your order online, you will be advised and charged the delivery fee.  There may be additional delivery fees however, depending on the factors listed above.  The final delivery fee will be confirmed by the Forty Winks Store responsible for fulfilling your order at the time that it telephones you to accept your order.  If you do not accept any additional delivery fee, you may choose to cancel your order in which case Forty Winks will arrange to refund your payment.

You may have the option of picking up a Product directly from the Forty Winks Store that is responsible for fulfilling your order (or the dispatch centre linked to that Forty Winks Store).  If this option is available, and you select it, then any delivery fee will be adjusted accordingly.

Pick up of Products may only occur once all relevant Products have been paid for in full and funds have cleared with Forty Winks.  You should not attempt to pick up any Products until you have spoken to the Forty Winks Store that is responsible for fulfilling your order and confirmed that the relevant Products are available for pick up, and that payment for the relevant Products has cleared.

Due to the nature of bulky goods and potential construction time, order delivery times may vary from what is stated on the Site.  A representative of the Forty Winks Store responsible for fulfilling your order will call you to confirm delivery details and delivery timeframe.

You agree to comply with the delivery requirements specified below and such other requirements that we notify you when you place your order through the Site.

We recommend that you be present to accept the delivery of your order if you have paid by credit card.

We may require the person accepting the delivery of your order to:

(b)    where relevant, provide us with proof of consent to use that credit card.

If there is no one or no appropriate person (for example, above 18 years old) at the delivery address to receive the order or, if you are required to be present at the time of delivery and you are not present at that time, then we will not deliver the Product you have ordered. In this instance, we will endeavour to contact you or you may contact us to arrange for delivery at a different time, and we may charge you an additional delivery fee for that replacement delivery.


(a)   acknowledge and agree that any person at the delivery address who receives the Product is authorised by you to receive your order; and

(b)    will ensure that the person receiving the goods is over the required age as prescribed by law.

You must provide clear and unobstructed access area for the delivery of goods.  Difficult access requires prior notice and additional delivery personnel may be required and additional delivery charges may result.  Our personnel will at all times be diligent and careful, but cannot be responsible for any accidental damage that may occur during the delivery process.

Forty Winks may advise approximate delivery times (such as lunchtime, late afternoon etc) in good faith however, Forty Winks are not responsible for traffic and delivery delays. All customers shall accept delivery of goods within 14 days of notification that the goods are available for delivery unless a prior arrangement has been made.
