Our 5kg Parcel delivery rates are Australia Wide and is available to anyone who can be serviced by Australia Post.  For coverage, you can check if your postcode can be serviced via the Australia Post website.  Australia Post does service most rural areas and Islands off Australia with an address and a postcode.  Yes we do deliver to PO Boxes.

For attachments and machinery, you will need to email us at for a quote as this does not fall under parcel delivery.  There are many variables depending on dimensions, weight, rolling loads, pallets, skids etc.  We do use a combination of star track, openica, northline, tnt, toll and whichever service is most suitable.  We strive to offer the best price quoting, but you so also have the option of organising your own transport as well.  You will need to contact us to ensure your item is ready for transport prior to booking with your Transport Company.


Auslift Crane and Access Hire proudly uses Australia Post  and Sendle for all their parcel deliveries under 5kg and under 1m long in Australia.  This is a fully trackable service via the tracking link you will receive after your purchase.  But you will also have access to log into your account and follow your parcel via the tracking link there.  Currently we are not offering a signature on delivery service as Australia Post attempts to control the spread of COVID19, but this will be updated as we wait for further updates.

Orders with weights heavier than 5kg or longer than 1m will require a different transport service which can vary in price depending on the location that parcels need to be delivered to. This will be a quoted rate based on dimensions and distance.


All parcels marked as in stock are sent on the next business day.

If you have ordered a backordered item amongst stocked items, this may delay your delivery as we wait for your item to return to stock.  Generally, if the backordered item is not already in transit from our suppliers, we will send the stocked products to you.  We will then send your backordered item out once it has arrived.

Machinery and custom attachments do have a lead time of roughly 4 to 8 weeks before they are ready for delivery.  Please check with Auslift for an accurate estimate on 03 9702 7977.

All our Australia Post parcels are marked "authority to leave" , so if there is nobody home to receive a parcel, then the courier driver will look for somewhere safe to leave your item and take a photo of it for proof.  If the driver cannot find somewhere safe, then they will return it to the nearest Australia Post for collection and leave a card with the information required to retrieve your parcel.


In the unlikely event of a lost or missing parcel, the first coarse of action is always to search your tracking number in the Australia Post Website .  From here you can firstly have a look at where your parcel is, and also when it is due to arrive.  If the tracking says that the item has already been delivered but you still don't have your parcel, then scroll down the page and follow the steps to lodge a missing parcel claim.
