Delivery Policy

Complete bicycles
If you are in Australia or New Zealand we ask you to use our bicycle-shop agents to order. If you want to take delivery outside of Australia and New Zealand we invite you to order using our shopping cart. If you wish to confirm availability of a specific product in advance of ordering please email [email protected]. After ordering online, you will receive an email confirmation from eWAY containing your order details. We will normally confirm receipt of your order within a few minutes of ordering. We will attempt to send your goods via TNT by air within four working days; however if goods are unavailable delivery will take longer. If goods are unavailable we will inform you within 48 hours of order placement at which time you will have the opportunity to cancel. If you wish to query a delivery please contact us at [email protected].

Typical International Delivery Time
Typically we dispatch from our warehouse within four days of order receipt. By airfreight an order then typically takes up to a week to arrive in the destination country. The final stage of delivery typically takes under a week but during this time is in the hands of the arrival country customs officials.

Timeline of order delivery

  • The order is entered from a location not in Australia or NZ and includes your delivery address details for delivery to you, also outside of Australia or NZ
  • The order is processed and an invoice is emailed to you
  • Dispatch information is sent to the Sydney warehouse, the stock is picked and a pick-up booked. This booking includes your contact details for the carrier and for customs officials in your country
  • The pick-up is performed
  • Depending on the your country, the carrier performs preshipment security screening of the cargo
  • The carrier sends an email to you with the shipment reference allowing you to track the shipment
  • The carrier moves the freight
  • The freight arrives in your country and the carrier performs a customs entry process
  • Depending on the country, either the carrier or a government department collects any duty and/or local tax payable from you and the freight is then delivered to you at your address.
  • Until this delivery, the goods are in the care of agents of the sender, Gemini Bicycle Centres Pty Ltd and are at the risk of Gemini Bicycle Centres Pty Ltd

Undeliverable Goods Policy

If an international delivery arrives in your country, with your name, contact details and delivery address as given in the order and then can not be delivered within 14 days (or earlier on your written advice) for reason unreachable contact details, an undeliverable-to address or nonpayment of local duties or taxes, the goods may be reshipped to the care of Gemini Bicycle Centres Pty Ltd by agents of Gemini Bicycle Centres Pty Ltd. In the case of such a reship a charge of AUD$1,300 will be levied (this is because the true freight cost is AUD$800 per shipment). After the original outbound freight charge and the reshipping charge are deducted, the balance of your original payment will be refunded to you within 14 days of receipt of goods at Gemini Bicycle’s address.

Refund & Returns Policy

Once delivered, if for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your purchase we will give you a fourteen day money-back guarantee from the time you receive the goods. Please email us at [email protected] within that time if you are not satisfied with your purchase so that we can resolve any problems. This refund policy does not apply to goods which have been worn or used, damaged after delivery, if any attempt has been made to alter the product or if they have been dropped or broken. All products must be returned in their original condition. All freight and insurance costs are to be paid by the buyer. If the freight charge on the original sale was less than what Gemini Bicycles paid then this difference must also be paid by the buyer. We would recommend that you return the product via International air courier. You assume any risk of lost, theft or damaged goods during transit & arrival; therefore we advise you take out shipment insurance with your freight carrier. Gemini Bicycle Centres Pty Ltd will not be responsible or packages or cartons lost or damaged in transit if you choose not to insure.

Liability for Local Import Duty and or Local Sales or Consumer Taxes Policy

Gemini Bicycle Centres Pty Ltd, is not certain of what Local Import Duty and or Local Sales or Consumer Taxes might be levied on its products in every country and jurisdiction.
