When ordering any product, understanding the delivery process is crucial for a smooth and hassle-free experience. The same applies to DomeShelter™ Structures, where knowing the details about delivery can provide peace of mind.
In this article, we will delve into the various aspects of delivery for DomeShelter Australia, including the options available, packing methods, estimated delivery times, and cost considerations.
Will DomeShelter Australia Arrange My Delivery?
DomeShelter Australia recognizes that each client has unique preferences when it comes to arranging delivery. Whether you choose to have the DomeShelter™ Team organise freight on your behalf or handle the transportation yourself is entirely up to you. The company offers assistance for both options, ensuring a flexible approach to meet your specific requirements.
There are three main delivery solutions our clients typically opt for:
- We offer free delivery to the Perth metro area for all DomeShelter™ Projects, for easy delivery direct to the sites of our Perth-based clients. Many clients outside of Perth also take advantage of this and opt to have their Shelter delivered to a freight depot in Perth, and from there liaise with a preferred freight company to complete the final delivery process.
- Clients with trusted freight contacts can arrange the entire transportation process themselves, with the Shelter collected directly from DomeShelter Australia’s depot.
- For those who prefer a hassle-free experience and want DomeShelter Australia to take care of the delivery entirely, this can be included as part of the project scope. The cost of delivery will be factored into the project, and we will handle the transport from our manufacturing yard to the clients’ designated site.
How Are DomeShelter™ Structures Packed for Delivery?
Efficient packaging facilitates safe and timely delivery. All DomeShelter™ products are neatly packaged in kit form, ready for transportation to any location worldwide. These kits contain all the necessary components (excl. tools) required for the installation of the Shelter, accompanied by comprehensive and user-friendly instructions.
Depending on the size and type of the Shelter, DomeShelter™ Structures are packed in different ways to ensure optimum safety and ease of handling during transit:
- As a palletised kit in a steel ‘crate’ or stillage
- Packaged inside a sea container
- As Truss members on a truck bed (for very large Truss Shelters)
DomeShelter™ Kits have fewer parts than many alternatives, which not only results in a more durable Shelter (less joints, easier installation), but also means that DomeShelter™ Structures can be packaged in a neater and more space-efficient way.
This smart packaging design has several advantages when it comes to delivery, such as:
- Easily liftable for unloading
- Easy to unpack on-site
- Packaged safely for delivery and movement
- Space saving; up to 3 Shelter kits can be transported on one truck depending on size
- Less ‘bits-i-ness’ means less chance of pieces going missing etc.
How Long Will Delivery Take and How Much Will It Cost?
Once your project is manufactured and packed, we aim to dispatch it promptly. For delivery to the Perth metro area, the process typically takes around 24 hours from dispatch to arrival. This quick turnaround time allows you to receive your Shelter in a timely manner and proceed with your project without unnecessary delays.
Delivery to the Eastern States, such as New South Wales or Queensland, may take approximately a week or longer, depending on various factors. Variables such as distance, size of Shelter, logistics, and specific project requirements can influence the delivery timeline. In some instances, extremely large projects may need to be transported on multiple trucks, resulting in a slightly extended delivery timeframe. However, we strive to keep any delivery delays to a minimum, ensuring your project progresses as planned.
Determining the exact cost of delivery depends on several factors, such as the size and weight of the Shelter, the distance of the delivery location, and any additional services or requirements. To obtain an accurate price estimation, it is recommended to provide the exact project details to freight providers. This allows them to consider the specific factors and provide you with an appropriate cost assessment for transportation.
Understanding the delivery process for DomeShelter™ Structures is crucial when planning your project. DomeShelter Australia offers flexibility in delivery arrangements, allowing you to choose whether you want them to arrange the freight or handle it yourself. We understand your time constraints and requirements, and always work with you to ensure we can work with you to meet project needs.
