Important things to note about your order in transit:-

Please note that Able Westchem is a Chemical Manufacturer; not a Courier, Transporter or Trucking Company.  Generally, we utilize third party Transporters and Couriers to deliver orders Australia wide.

Able Westchem does not offer a free ‘re delivery’ service on a failed delivery attempt. Further charges may apply if the goods cannot be delivered.

Please ensure you always follow the instructions received regarding the status of your delivery via email and/or SMS directly from and through the Carrier. Please contact the Carrier directly with any enquiries.

Couriers do not carry service phones, therefore are unable to contact you with a phone call prior to delivery.

Insurance is not generally offered by general Transporters of liquid chemicals in Australia. Goods delivered by a Courier / Transporter are entirely at the Purchaser’s own risk (i.e. theft or damage).  Although, Carriers take great care throughout the delivery process, sometimes things can go wrong, get damaged or lost. Not ideal for anyone, we hear you! If something happens to your item, please let us know by referring to the Returns instructions below. We will investigate with the Carrier, but please understand we are not the Carrier and we can’t promise they will provide any compensation or refund.
