AutoElec offers a notify me button, and a pre-order button for all items that are being restocked, and we’ll let you know as soon as they come in for your next order/purchase. At times we may not stock the item you require and unfortunately, we are unable to special order in products which we do not stock.

Some ordered items may have come from different warehouses, so it’s a good idea to check your order dispatch notification. This will show the progress of your multiple tracking numbers, or if you need help please contact AutoElec here with your order number.

Contact AutoElec here as soon as possible with your order number for assistance. We will arrange a refund or replacement if goods are damaged in transit, or if the item is not as described.

Make sure the item is in original condition and pack carefully. We will authorise and pay for the return and email you a pre-paid return label via Australia post. Just print, attach and drop off at the post office. We will authorise a pre-paid return for bulky items delivered by courier, just drop the item at the closest depot - unfortunately we cannot arrange a pick-up from your delivery address.

As we have multiple warehouses located across Australia, and we cannot facilitate a pickup service.

A person at the delivery address must sign to receive the item – and Autoelec accepts this as an authorised order. If you wish your consignment to be left without a signature, please request this prior to dispatch.

Many Autoelec items are freight free, but this may vary with individual listings – so please check shipping costs. We try to ship from the closest warehouse to your delivery address, so you get the best possible shipping price!

We email your tracking number as soon as it is generated and when the goods are dispatched. If you wish to track your parcel please visit the courier tracking website listed on the dispatch notification. Click here to visit the Australia Post eParcel tracking website – the number can take up to 24 hours to upload. You will receive a dispatch email from our courier companies, with the consignment number and link for order tracking.

If you missed a delivery please follow the instructions on the delivery card from our couriers or Australia Post. Sometimes a courier will take your order to the closest post office or courier depot, so please contact your local depot with your tracking number to see if your order is waiting. If delivery has been attempted multiple times, the courier or post office may return the item to us. We will contact you for further instructions and dispatch again upon receipt of the appropriate second shipping charge. If the re-delivery charge remains unpaid for more than 30 days, your order will be deemed abandoned and may be offered for resale or otherwise disposed of.

Within the first 24 hours after dispatch the courier service may not have scanned your parcel yet, once 24 hours have passed this should now work.

We dispatch within 2-4 working days of your cleared payment being received.

Items generally arrive 3-5 working days for delivery to any state capital city. 4-7 working days for delivery to most large regional towns and 5-10 working days for delivery to other remote locations. These delivery times are estimates only, and actual delivery times may vary. During peak periods (Easter, Christmas and public holidays), deliveries may take longer. Specific delivery dates or times are not offered by couriers.
