However, please contact us if you have any questions about products you wish to order.
DAMAGES We promise your parcel will leave the warehouse in pristine condition but because we use third party couriers, we can’t 100% guarantee nothing will go awry during transit. We know that nobody wants a parcel that looks like it was regurgitated onto their doorstep by Godzilla, so if there is any damage please take a photo/video of the item (in the package IF possible) and EMAIL us. We will dispatch a replacement or provide you with a credit for future use.
LATE, MISSING OR LOST PACKAGE It is the responsibility of the customer to inform Geelong Fireworks if an order has not been delivered within the delivery time above, as we are yet to perfect the art of ESP. When notified we will investigate straight away and ensure that your order is delivered and received. There are several reasons why a package gets lost or becomes a deliver exception. We’ve found that, more often than not, the package is either in the building or with a neighbour. Geelong Fireworks politely requests that customers look in common courier hiding spots. Please take a look around and let us know if you find it. If you haven’t located your order, please EMAIL us to report missing or lost packages.
UNSUCCESSFUL DELIVERY Submitting an order online is making a contract to purchase those items. . If after multiple attempts the courier has been unable to complete delivery to you and is returned to us, you have the option of having your order reshipped after paying the freight charge again, or we will refund the original order amount, less the initial shipping charge plus $20.00 or 15% of order value, whichever is greater, restocking fee. Refused delivery – Goods will be abandoned, with no refund.
Change of mind – no refund. We will replace faulty merchandise (as long as product has not been tampered with or abused) with the same product but we do not offer cash or credit refunds.
Magic Tricks, Flash Products. Illusions. No Refund. Like any other providers of tricks/props in the world, there are no refunds. Please be careful in choosing your item, as the value of any magic effect lies with its working and secret.
Sparklers, Smoke Emitters, Flash Paper Products, Confetti Cannons. No Refund, Due to the nature of these products we need to insure the integrity of the product, ie. not kept in damp conditions, crushed etc. We are sure you would not like to buy a less than perfect product. Confetti Cannons take a bit of effort to twist the tube.
CD’s, DVD’s, Books and Downloadable products. No refunds as these can be easily copied. Faulty DVD’s will be replaced on receipt of faulty disc in cover etc. with the SAME DVD.
Actor Cigarettes, Cigars etc Which possibly could have been used in the mouth, even if in original wrapping – No Refund.
Air Squib Systems. No Refund. Sorry, but ensure they are right for the job ….talk to us…and practise. Hundreds have been sold world wide.
