Unforeseen events that cause freight and transport delays are not and cannot be insured against and are not refundable. This is in accordance with Australian consumer law.
No refunds are given for lost deliveries unless under exceptional circumstances are found after a thorough investigation by the freight company, for example, freight company error. If your order has not arrived by the estimated date of delivery, you must contact us right away, within 2 business days after the estimated delivery day. By not contacting us you significantly reduce the options available to you to rectify any issues or delays that could have occurred with the item.
IF your order appears to be LOST we will lodge a search with our Courier Partners. If indeed your order has been lost, we will lodge an insurance claim on your behalf and, once paid to us, we will refund in full to you. This process (insurance claim) can take a few weeks. We will not refund or replace items until we receive a refund from our Courier Partners – unless they deny claim by showing proof of delivery, in such case Geelong Fireworks will not issue a 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 cannot offer cash or credit refunds.
Magic Tricks, Flash Products. Illusions. 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. 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. NOTE THAT: 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 returns.
Air Squib Systems Sorry, but ensure they are right for the job ….talk to us…and practise. We have had these used in films etc, returned as “no good” then seen them work perfectly in the final production! They have been used worldwide in major productions.
