COVID-19 & Other Important Operation Updates

Update - 1st Dec 2020: Continued delays from shipping companies and suppliers due to COVID coupled with a huge influx of orders during Black Friday and the upcoming Christmas closures, has unfortunately resulted in multiple bottlenecks in our supply chain. We are doing our best to make sure all orders are dispatched as soon as we possibly can, but please be advised that there could be extended delays in shipping out some orders. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

UPDATE - 3rd Aug 2020: Due to the 6-week lockdown announced by the Victorian Government, there could be further delays in receiving stock from our suppliers based out of Victoria. AusPost (and other couriers) can also face extended delays in delivering customer orders going to Victoria.

First and foremost, we hope you’re staying safe, happy and healthy during this testing time and would like to thank you for supporting our locally owned business so we can keep providing you excellent service and maintain our unbeatable prices.

Online Store

Ceiling Fans Direct is running at full capacity with few of our online team working remotely. As per usual, the team is excited to hear from you through email, phone or live chat Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm AEST.

We are doing our best to get back to all the emails and phone calls in a timely manner however with the huge influx of customer contact we are still experiencing delays in getting back to all our customers. We would ask that you please be mindful of this and we thank you for your patience.

Our Brisbane warehouse is picking and dispatching your favourite products from all of the big brands Australia-wide, every business day! You can take advantage of our free shipping on orders over $150. We have started offering order 'Pickup' option from our warehouse once again for all online orders, with processes put in place to make this entirely contactless.

Shipping Times

While the vast majority of our orders arrive within the normal delivery timeframes we are starting to see the processing of orders and delivery times take several extra days beyond our normal delivery windows.
With more and more people shopping online this is adding to the delays we are seeing. This is affecting deliveries on both sides of the business, incoming and outgoing goods.

We are working closely with Australia Post to ensure that your order is delivered on time. While we don’t anticipate any big delays but we have noticed longer than normal times to NSW, VIC, WA and SA, we are monitoring the situation closely as this all unfolds and we would ask for your patience and understanding of any unforeseen delays. 

You can also keep up to date on Australia Post website for COVID-19 effects on their business HERE.

Warranties and Returns

We are pleased to announce there is no change in your ability to take advantage of our 30-day returns policy. Our team is currently processing returns twice a week to ensure that things continue to operate as quickly as you have been used to.
