Shipping Policy

Our Commitment

APC (All Purpose Coatings Pty Ltd) is committed to providing a reliable and quality service to our customers.
This includes working closely with our shipping partners to ensure the smooth and timely delivery of goods.

Unfortunately, while every effort is made to ensure deliveries are on time and undamaged, couriers don’t always get it right. We’ll make every effort to work with you and the courier company to ensure a smooth resolution to delivery issues.

Classification of Dangerous Goods & Hazardous Goods

Australian federal and state law defines the rules in which businesses must follow when transporting, storing or using chemicals which are designated to be dangerous or hazardous. As such there are strict regulations that All Purpose Coatings, the courier & the consignee (you) must follow. APC is compliant with the Australian Dangerous Goods Code and Global Harmonised System for the classification of chemicals.

Can I get express delivery?

Local Express deliveries via Lynx are available. (SEQ Only)

All Other Areas: Due to the nature of the goods primarily manufactured by All Purpose Coatings express delivery is not available. Limited items such as EPO100 (PART A), Flake & Consumables can be shipped via air express freight. Unfortunately, the cost of this is approximately 15x that of normal freight. Where if you are quoted $150 for land freight, air freight would be approximately $2250. If your order is urgent, please advise our team and we will organise transport via the fastest land options available. All Purpose Coatings does not guarantee, advise or make any implication of delivery times – this is purely at the discretion of the shipping agent.

What if I am not home or available at the time of delivery?

Due to the value of goods in transit couriers will require a signature on delivery. If you wish to provide authority for the courier to leave the goods unattended you must explicitly provide this permission on each order where you wish for this to occur.If you are not available at the time of your delivery and a redelivery is required, All Purpose Coatings may invoice you for the additional charges received from the freight company.
