French Dressing's personalised service ensures that your furniture purchase arrives at your door as economically as possible and in the hands of specialists. Upon receiving your order, we will be in contact with an expected delivery date into our warehouse and will commence delivery arrangements in consultation with you. Please expect a delivery time once the item is received into our warehouse of up to 2 weeks (longer for outer country areas or in peak periods) depending on where you are and the direction our drivers are heading.
As our drivers are specialists, we would ask for your patience if delivery takes an extra week or two - you can be assured of your purchase being delivered in trusted hands. Please note that standard furniture delivery has 1 man on the truck, therefore he will require help to lift the item off at point of delivery. If no-one is able to assist an additional fee may apply to cover a further resource. If there will be no-one at home to receive the items on scheduled delivery date, be sure to contact us as a redelivery fee may apply.
Delivery quoted is for the item to be delivered inside the front door for properties with easy access. If you require the item to be transported to the room of your choice or you have difficult access, please contact us for a quotation and we will be pleased to assist.
At all times we do our best to work around your time frame. Your satisfaction is our highest priority, so please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about your delivery or availability.
It is our pleasure to provide a complimentary gift wrapping service upon request. When ordering a gift, please provide the recipient's name and address and any special instructions upon checkout. Let us take care of the rest!
Expedited shipping is important to us. For Australian Buyers, dependant on your location, we generally use the Australia Post e-Parcel Service or a courier service for delivery.

Australia Post - Within Australia
We are pleased to provide an option to take out Australia Post Insurance Cover which is optional although highly recommended. Insurance costs $1.50 for each $100 value (or part there-of – up to $5,000) to protect against loss or damage of your parcel.
In the event of a claim, the item must be brought by the customer in its original packaging to your nearest Australia Post Office, and a claim form must be completed within the following timeframes:
- In the event of damage, within 7 days of the date of delivery; and
- In the event of loss, within 30 days of the receipt of this notice.
Failure to comply with these conditions will result in insurance being voided (this does not diminish your Consumer Rights). If we may be of assistance in anyway, please do not hesitate to contact our customer service team at email@example.com or on 02 9699 8808.
