Please contact us for an ETA for your country.
Please note: Above delivery times are estimates only and may be impacted on by Covid-19 related delays.
As we use TNT couriers, we unfortunately cannot deliver to a PO Box, as your parcels need to be signed for. TNT cannot divert a booked (en route) delivery to a post office or secondary address. TNT drivers cannot call you to advise of their delivery times. There must be someone at the address during business hours to sign for the delivery, otherwise you must provide an Authority to Leave, with clear instructions for a safe place the parcel can be left by the driver. If you cannot be present for the delivery, you must either authorise someone else to sign on your behalf, or supply an alternative primary delivery address when you place your order.
I’ve received my boxes and a few are damaged, what should I do?
Please carefully read our Returns & Exchanges policy for all matters relating to returns.
Goods in Transit
All our risk for loss of goods or damage in transit ends at the time we provide the goods to the courier, or they otherwise leave our possession. We are not responsible for damage to your order while in transit and a replacement of your order will be decided at our discretion.
All express shipped orders can be tracked online. However, not all regular shipments have this option. You can find your tracking number two ways:
- 1. Check the shipping confirmation email we sent you (this should arrive in your inbox within 48 hours of purchase). The email will contain a tracking link if there’s one available.
- 2. If that doesn’t work:
- 3. Email us and quote your order number. We’ll help you with the rest.
How do I cancel my order?
Contact us within 24 hours of placing your order. That way we should be able to catch the order before it is dispatched. Anything after this window will be subject to our Returns & Exchanges policy.
Can I add items to my order after I have hit the place order/confirmation button?
If you want to add an item to your order please email us within 24hrs of your purchase and we’ll do what we can to adjust things.
What are my payment options?
We accept MasterCard, Visa, AMEX, PayPal and ApplePay.
What currency can I pay in?
All transactions are processed in Australian Dollars ($AUD). Tax is included in the price and will be shown on the checkout page before purchase.
We know you’re going to love your gift boxes from The Box Office, but just in case something is not what you expected, here’s what you can do:
If you wish to return your items
We do not accept returns due to change of mind. If you believe you have been supplied faulty stock or your delivery is not the item you ordered, you must notify us by email within 7 days from the day you receive your purchase, citing the reason you wish to return your items. We can then let you know if we will accept a return and on what conditions, if any.
If you have received the wrong item(s)
Please note, we do not refund postage costs and you are responsible for all shipping and handling charges associated with any returns.
To be eligible for a refund or exchange, the goods must be in new condition, with no damage, soiling or missing stock from the cartons.
When we receive your returned item(s) and we deem them to be in the same condition as the items we sent to you, we will contact you to process a refund or exchange, at our discretion.
In the event that we are unable to contact you to finalise a return transaction or your return is outside the Policy period, The Box Office reserves the right to return to you, the items that you have sent to us from the original purchase.
In the event that an exchange is allowed outside the policy requirements, that exchange will be considered final and ineligible for further transaction.
The Box Office is committed to designing and manufacturing the highest quality gift boxes and packaging. However, our boxes are hand made, so occasionally some minor faults can occur. In the event that you should receive an item that is genuinely faulty, you should advise us by email within 7 days from the day you receive your purchase, citing the fault with your items. We can then let you know if we will accept a return and on what conditions, if any. Upon assessment of the goods and acceptance from The Box Office that your item(s) are genuinely faulty, we will ask you to send the item(s) back to us so that we can process a refund or exchange at our discretion. Please note, we offer shipping insurance with our freight options and therefore we do not accept returns due to damage caused to goods while in transit.
I’ve noticed a bit of glue on the box surface, what should I do?
Our gift boxes are made by hand. We check all our boxes individually for quality before they leave our warehouse, however due to the hand making process, sometimes a small amount of glue may be seen on the box surfaces. This can be easily removed by wiping a lightly dampened cloth over the surfaces of the box. Take care not to wet the boxes excessively, a tiny amount of water applied to a clean cloth is all that is necessary.
The magnets don’t seem to work, what should I do?
Magnets work best when they are kept together. We use strong magnets on our boxes so you should not experience any problems, but if they do not immediately appear to bond after being assembled from flat-pack, you may need to give them a little time. Magnetism gets stronger upon extended contact and magnets can also be adversely affected by the cold, so let them come up to room temperature, especially if they have travelled or been stored in cold temperatures. Bend the front flap back on itself carefully (towards the inside of the box) as this often helps push the flap closer to the box front when the lid is closed. Close the box front flap and leave for up to 24 hours, the magnetism should increase and the closure flap should be fine. For boxes with ribbons, tying the ribbon securely will also help the magnets to bond with each other.
