Terms & Conditions
Terms & conditions
This website is owned and operated by AVANE. We may amend Terms and Conditions when needed; these amendments become effective immediately.
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) – Update to terms & conditions as of MARCH 2020
Please note that we have updated our T&Cs in light of the current situation regarding COVID-19 in Australia.
We have implemented a ‘contactless delivery’ policy with immediate effect. This means wherever possible there should be no direct contact between drivers and customers.
Drivers have been given ‘authority to leave’ for all deliveries wherever there is a safe place to leave the gift. This is to further reduce the opportunity for person to person contact.
Drivers will still be required to alert the gift recipient – either by knocking on door / ringing doorbell and ask for the recipient’s name.
Drivers will be required to take photos as proof of delivery, rather than obtain signatures from the gift recipient.
As this is a public health measure, we will not be asking customers to give us prior permission for ‘authority to leave’ gifts and flowers.
For deliveries to business addresses that may be closed due to COVID-19, we are happy to send orders to an alternative address at no extra cost as long as we are informed of the address change prior to 11am on the day of delivery. An additional delivery fee will be charged for any updates to addresses after 11am on the day of delivery. It remains the customers responsibility to ensure that all delivery address details are correct and up to date.
For further information on measures we are implementing due to COVID-19, please see our FAQs page.
Prices and Payment
You agree to pay for all products and services you order. Prices given on product pages exclude delivery (see below under delivery for more detail). The price of products and services we offer may change without notice from time to time, but we will never change the price of anything you have already ordered and paid for. All prices are quoted in Australian dollars. We accept payment by Visa, Mastercard and PayPal. Payment card use may be subject to processing fees, but you will be informed of those prior to finalising your purchase.
AVANE offers a same day delivery service across metro areas in Hobart and a one to four day delivery service to rural or other areas in Australia. The cost of delivery is dependent on suburb and fees start from $15.00. This is subject to change and will be updated on our website as the changes occur. Our delivery hours are between 8.00am and 6.00pm. Please note we are not able to guarantee delivery at a specific time of day. Our courier partners do not provide same day or next day delivery services to regional parts of Australia or to International markets but please get in touch if you would like to arrange a custom delivery and we will be more than happy to facilitate this if we can. Unfortunately we cannot send to PO Boxes as part of our delivery option.
Once a gift has been delivered to a concierge or front desk at the address specified we cannot be held responsible for the gift getting to the recipient. In regards to hospital deliveries, if the patient has been discharged the gift will be returned to AVANE HQ and a re-delivery fee will apply. In the unfortunate event of a delay or delivery issue AVANE will work with the customer to assist in resolving any issues. If a customer gives permission for flowers to be left (eg: around the back) and the receivers are on holidays or not returning to their home, it is not the responsibility of AVANE to provide a replacement or refund in this instance.
A gift is considered as undeliverable if (i) the Recipient’s address is incomplete, incorrect or cannot be located, (ii) there is no one at home to receive the gift and there is nowhere safe to leave the gift (iii) the delivery is refused by the recipient before opening the package.
All undeliverable gifts will either be (i) re-directed to a local post office for collection by the intended recipient or (ii) returned to AVANE HQ where the customer will be liable for all charges and fees incurred in returning, storing or disposing of an undeliverable gift. When a gift is re-directed to a local post office a courier card will be left at the recipients address to inform them of their local collection point. Due to the perishable nature of some of our products (e.g. flowers) it is strongly advised that recipients collect their gift within 24 hours from the collection point indicated on the courier card. AVANE cannot be held responsible for delays in the collection and pick-up of gifts and is not liable for the quality and condition of perishable goods, such as flowers, that have not been collected within a 24 hour time frame from the date and time of attempted delivery.
Units and apartment buildings
Couriers sometimes face problems with delivering goods to units and apartment building which can result in gifts arriving late, going missing or being returned to AVANE HQ. If gifts are being delivered to an apartment or unit address the customer is responsible for ensuring that the recipient will be available on the day to receive the gift. If the recipient is not home and the courier cannot gain access to the building to leave the gift in a safe place the gift will be deemed ‘undeliverable’ and either be (i) re-directed to a local post office for collection by the intended recipient or (ii) returned to AVANE HQ where the customer will be liable for all charges and fees incurred in returning, storing or disposing of an undeliverable gift.
In the event of an undeliverable gift being re-directed to a local post office, a courier card will be left at the original delivery address to inform the recipient where to collect the gift. AVANE is not responsible for gifts not collected by the recipient.
Incorrect and incomplete addresses
Please be very careful in providing us with correct, complete and up to date address information. If you provide us with an incorrect or incomplete address and we deliver your order as per your instructions, we can accept no responsibility for the mistake. If we are unable to deliver to an incorrect or incomplete address and the order is returned to LVLY HQ, we can redeliver but the customer will incur a additional delivery charge as well as a product replacement fee for any perishable items, such as flowers, that need to be replenished.
Substitution and Seasonal Availability Disclaimer
AVANE endeavours to fulfil all orders in compliance with product descriptions, however flower orders may be subject to seasonal and product availability. AVANE reserves the right to substitute flower varieties when necessary, however we will always take utmost care to ensure the final product is similar in quality to the requested item. Substitutions and alterations to the style of a product will be of similar quality and value.
Delivery of Alcohol
AVANE liquor license states that in order to send alcohol it must accompany flowers, plants or gifts. Alcohol orders cannot be left unattended when being delivered, therefore someone must be home to receive them.
AVANE will not deliver an order with alcohol without first contacting the receiver to confirm someone 18 years old or over will be home to receive them, unless sending to a business address.
Availability of product
The homepage and product pages will be updated when flowers are no longer available to purchase, stating that the style has sold out. All other products will state on the product page if they are no longer available.
Days of operation
We deliver 5 Days a week. We do not operate on public holidays, so products will not be dispatched on such days. If you order a product for public holidays we will deliver on the next working day.
Warranties, refunds and cancellations
Due to our quick turnaround times we’re unable to refund if you change your mind about a purchase that has already been made or in transit. We are also unable to offer a refund if incorrect delivery information is given to us. It’s the sender’s responsibility to make sure they provide us with detailed and accurate delivery instructions. If the wrong delivery address is given we can re-deliver, but this may be at an additional cost. The customer can request to have their order date moved for no extra fee if 24 hours notice is provided. For advance orders, a cancellation must be made 24 hours in advance if necessary and a full refund will be provided. Cancellations can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by dropping us a line on 0490481990. Every flower is different and some are more delicate than others. You should expect your flowers to last at least 3 days. If for any reason (excluding extreme spikes in temperature) they last less than 3 days, or you’re not happy with your order, please let us know immediately so we can do our best to put things right. Any unhappiness with a customer’s product must be advised to AVANE within 24 hours of receiving the product. Imagery of the flowers must be provided to AVANE to assess the condition. Alternatively the flowers should be presented to a AVANE florist for assessment. Regretfully, AVANE cannot arrange a resend of fresh flowers if the originals are disposed of without first being assessed by a AVANE florist.
