Dispatch & Delivery

More information on our Shipping Policy is available here.

Highmark Cricket offers reliable delivery options through our
trusted carriers. The cost of delivery is based upon the volumetric weight of the items and the specified shipping destination and the Shipping Cost is calculated and charged at check out.

Please note that some products are bulky (e.g. batting pads, kit bags) and there can be a significant difference between the actual weight and the volumetric weight. All courier companies base their cost on the higher of the actual weight or the volumetric weight.

We use shippit for booking and managing majority of our deliveries. Through shippit, we get access to courier companies like Aramex (previously Fastway), Couriers Please, TNT, Road Express, etc. All the courier companies we have selected have high performance score (>97%).

We use Australia Post for some deliveries to regional towns and/or PO Boxes.

Orders are typically dispatched within 1 working day and delivered within 3 to 10 working days. If your order includes Bat preparation (e.g. Oiling & Knocking) it may take an additional 3-5 working days to complete the preparation before it is dispatched.

We email you a Tracking Number when the order is booked for courier pick up from our warehouse in Melbourne. You can use the Tracking Number to check your order status.

NOTE:

- Dispatch time may increase slightly during peak time like Christmas/Boxing Day, Black Friday Cyber Monday, etc. We will inform you if the dispatch is expected to be delayed.

- Delivery to regional towns may take longer than 10 working days.

- Deliveries may also be impacted by extraordinary events like COVID-19, floods, bush fires, etc.

Apologies for the delay you experienced in receiving your package. Due to COVID-19 and increased parcel volumes, unfortunately, all carriers are experiencing delays in transit and support times.

Our delivery partners have asked that we allow an additional 2-3 business days past the expected delivery date before lodging an investigation. Unfortunately, raising a support ticket within the first 2 business days of the delay often does not provide any meaningful information from the delivery partners.

Apologies for the delay you experienced in receiving your package. Due to the COVID-19 and increased parcel volumes, unfortunately, all carriers are experiencing delays in transit and support times.
We will open an investigation with our delivery partners which can take 5 business days. The investigation includes driver's van search and a depot search amongst other steps.
During this process, we will keep you updated on the progress every 1-2 business days.
We can only process a refund or a replacement request once our delivery partners have completed the investigation and advise us of the final outcome. We appreciate this can be frustrating but the delay is beyond our control.

Refund & Exchange

More information on our Refund & Exchange policy is available here.

Cricket Bats are hand crafted and made from natural willow and each bat is unique.

We take utmost care during the bat preparation process but minor cracks and damage can occur during knocking in.

The performance out of a cricket bat also depends on the player's skill level and how much care is taken in using and storing the bat.

We CANNOT guarantee the performance of the cricket bat and do not accept any claim for exchange or refund for any perceived lack of performance.

We are happy to provide you photos or any other information about the bat you are considering buying. Please feel free to contact us before finalising your purchase.
