Help, FAQ + Terms & Conditions
Orders will be sent via Australia Post or our designated freight company (Usually Fastway Couriers or Startrack Express) Please allow up to 3 - 14 working days for delivery. We have also found that couriers will not phone you to tell you the exact time your order will be delivered (even when asked) as it varies day to day. They usually deliver between 8:30am - 4:30 pm, which is why we recommend your items being sent to a work address. Please allow 1-2 days processing time for some stocked items but most orders leave same day.
Large and/or heavy items may cost extra, if you are unsure feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
It is your responsibility to supply Musos Corner with your correct shipping address. Freight drivers are only obliged to deliver to this address, and take no responsibility.
Items displaying the Free Freight icon will be delivered to your door for Free! If you don't see the Free Freight icon, then there will be a small delivery charge. Free Freight will not be insured, as insurance is extra. If you wish to have insurance on your Free Freight, please contact us. We will send the items through the cheapest way, if you would like it couriered, registered or insured please contact us!
Remote locations not included. (such as WA, NT and other remote locations)
*Musos Corner reserves the right to withdraw this offer at any time with or without notice.
Items such as certain pedals and stomp boxes, accessories and effects may have free postage. This will go via Australia Post only. Courier/Insurance/Registered Post would be extra. Please contact us.
Items sent by Australia post can not be insured, if you would like insurance please select courier.
We can Express Post/Courier your items if necessary but additional charges may apply. Orders generally leave at 2:00pm daily so if you need an item asap, make sure it is ordered by 1pm (please call 02 4929 2829) to ensure there is stock of the item and to get an estimated time of arrival. Express post is to capital / major cities only (for next day service). This service is for items under 5KG only!
How can i track my order?
Check your email and you will have been sent a tracking number, input the number into either Fastway, Startrack or Australia Post's Track & Trace engine.
Do you take international orders?
Sorry, we do not take international orders, we only sell and ship around Australia at this point in time.
How much is shipping?
To work out a shipping cost, please go through the cart and our system will work out a freight price to your area.
If you think there may be an error, or want to clarify the price, you are welcome to contact us
Do you offer freight insurance?
We certainly do, and highly recommend it. Insurance is optional to the order and is 3% of the order value.
This is only applicable to Courier, we cannot insure Australia Post items.
But i clicked on insure and selected australia post…
We cant insure Australia Post, the best we can do is register it for you.. if you would like it insured please select courier!!!
If the total price of Aus Post + Insurance is close enough to the courier price we may be kind enough to have it couriered for you instead.
Can i pick my goods up in store?
Unlike some stores, we do not charge for you to pick up in store. We are open 7 days for your convenience, but please give us a date and time of pick up so we can make sure your goods are ready. Orders that are left for over 1 week and not picked up will be returned to stock, unless other arrangements have been made.
What if i am not home?
Unfortunately neither Aus Post nor any courier will call you no matter what the circumstances, they will leave a card in your mail box so you can pick-up from the local depot or Post office (Aus Post only) or arrange re-delivery.
We have found it to be much quicker & easier to have all items sent to a business address where someone will be present.
Can i ask for the courier to leave the goods at my door?
Whilst it Is possible, we highly recommend that you do not do it. All freight warranty & insurance will be void. Only do so at your own risk, if someone steals it, Musos Corner & The freight company will not be held accountable.
If you will not be able to take the delivery, it might be worth asking a friend or neighbour to take delivery of it for you.
What if it appears my goods have been freight damaged?
Please check all items before signing for them, to sign for them means "Signed for in good working order" and subsequently is out of the couriers hands, and insurance. If this was not possible, there can be a 24 Hour window to try and claim insurance, please contact us & the courier immediately. This only applies to orders that have paid for Insurance & are sent via courier.
Can the courier or delivery person call me prior to delivery?
Unfortunately as often as we request this, no courier or Australia post worker will call you prior to delivery.
If you select courier we will send you a tracking number which you can use to find out an estimated time of arrival for your goods, or alternatively have it sent to a business address.
Can the courier deliver to my PO BOX?
No, they can not. Australia post only.
Can i have my goods delivered on the weekend or after hours?
Unfortunately this is not possible at the current point in time, however you are welcome to pickup late night thursday or on weekends.
I've been emailed a tracking number, how do i track it?
The number should look like Fastway FA0000001 or Startrack YTP0000 or Aus Post 111111, Simply go to the website of the company it was sent with (Fastway, Startrack Express, Australia Post) and trace it there.
