Our delivery service


We offer free - yes, free! - next-day delivery to most Australian metropolitan areas, as well as selected regional centres. (Except for small appliances and some small audio-visual products, which are delivered by Australia Post - still free, but not next day.)

To see whether free, next-day delivery is available in your area, type your postcode in the field at the top of our website.

How will Appliances Online minimise contact during COVID-19?

Greeting and distance - Our team will not be shaking customers' hands or be in close contact. We will be waving and saying hello.

Minimising time spent in your home - We will take products out of their boxes outside your property, before taking them inside.

Signing for delivery - Our team will ask customers for permission to sign on their behalf, to avoid touching devices.

Hygiene practices - We are committed to training and supporting our delivery team in the best hygiene practices.

Delivery day

When you make your purchase, you can choose a delivery day (unless it’s a small appliance or a small audio-visual product, because they're delivered by Australia Post). In most areas, we deliver Monday to Friday, but in Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne metro areas, we also offer Saturday deliveries for an additional fee.

Next-day delivery

In metropolitan areas, we can do free, next business day delivery, provided you complete your order prior to your state's cut-off time below. If you order on a Saturday or Sunday, the earliest we can deliver is the following Tuesday.

Next-day delivery order cut-off times:

State Next-Day Delivery Cut-Off Time
NSW & ACT Midnight AEST
VIC Midnight AEST
QLD Midnight QLD Time
SA Midnight ACST


Midnight AWST

Delivery time

We usually deliver during business hours, but sometimes it’s as early as 6:30am or as late as 7pm. Your driver will contact you once before 11am, to provide you with a 2-hour delivery window, and again approximately 30 minutes before they arrive. Unless you’re one of the first deliveries of the day, in which case they’ll contact you as they’re leaving the warehouse, giving you as much notice as possible.

If you’re in the Sydney metro area, you can purchase a Premium Delivery for $75, and choose a 2-hour delivery window (between 6am and 6pm).

Small appliances and (some) audio-visual products - Delivered free by Australia Post

Small appliances and some audio-visual products are delivered free by Australia Post, and will be subject to their delivery schedule. Unfortunately, we're unable to provide a set delivery date, though these packages usually arrive within 5-10 days for in-stock products (interstate and out of stock items typically take 8-16 days to arrive). As soon as the order is processed by Australia Post, we’ll send you a text message with a tracking number you can use to track the progress of your delivery via Australia Post.

Note that the old appliances being removed must be similar to the new appliance being delivered, and it must be fully disconnected from any power, water or gas supplies (gas disconnections must be performed by a licensed plumber) prior to our arrival.

No PO (Post Office) Boxes - Street address only

We're not able to deliver to PO (Post Office) Boxes. We require your full street address, and require you to be available to take delivery.
