Our Service to you

Products & Delivery

We stock all items in our warehouse and our website shows real-time inventory level.  If it shows 'add to cart' it's in stock and usually can be dispatched on the same day if the order is made before 12pm!  Occassionally due to overwhelming demands some products may be sold out and will be marked as 'backorder'.

We know how excited you are in receiving our products so we strive to get the products to you as quick as possible.  To ensure your products arrive to your destination safely and minimize the risk of lost in transit all our delivery is done using Australia Post with signature on delivery (Standard and Express).  For standard post the item will reach major metro destination between 3-7 days. If you require quicker delivery please select the express post option which will generally arrive to you within 1-2 days depending on your location. Delivery charges are fixed ($12.95 for Australia standard delivery) no matter how many products you order however we reserve the right to quote a custom delivery charge for large bulk items (eg. LED Flood lights) or custom orders in which case you will be notified.  

All items are checked from our warehouse before delivery however SmartLiving recommend you to inspect the contents of your items and advise us immediately if any products are damaged or not what you expected (see DOA & Replacements)
