Delivery and Returns | Terms and Conditions


While we wish to make purchasing Sinopec products as simple as possible for you, we must point out that you are agreeing to our Terms and Conditions by making a purchase through our online store. It is important that you read and understand these Terms and Conditions before ordering.

Note these terms and conditions do not affect your statutory rights, and that we reserve the right to amend these Terms and Conditions at any stage.

Can I collect my order?

Of course! However, please wait for a confirmation email that your order is ready to collect (1-2 business days). 

Once your order is ready for collection, you will receive the full warehouse address and the Item Fulfillment IF**** reference number. Without the sales order confirmation or IF number, we cannot release the order. Orders are processed as we receive them. Arriving at the warehouse without a confirmation means the order likely has not been picked yet. Order timeframes aren't guaranteed due to circumstances beyond our control and exclude weekends and public holidays.

Enclosed shoes must be worn when collecting from a warehouse.

Our warehouse will not load a 1000kg IBC if they believe your vehicle cannot carry the weight. Anything over 80kg (4 pails) is strapped to a pallet to be lifted by a forklift (unless you specify otherwise). Ensure your vehicle can carry the weight AND fit a pallet (1.2m x 1.2m x 1.2m).

Warehouse Locations

Delivery is calculated based on your proximity to the CBD of the capital city of your state. Location zones are determined by ILD, not government/council boundaries, for our transit rates. 

You will receive a confirmation email when your order has been sent to the warehouse for processing. Orders received by 11 am (AWST) will be delivered the next business day. Orders received after 11 am (AWST) will be delivered the day after the next business day. 

Deliveries are during business hours to the delivery address on the order. Unless an Authority to Leave (ATL) is specified, someone must be available to accept the delivery. Otherwise, the order will be returned to the depot, and further attempts will attract delivery fees.

We will only allow Authority to Leave (ATL) if there is a secure, easy-to-find delivery drop-off area. ILD accepts no responsibility for stolen or damaged goods that have an ATL. If the driver arrives at an ATL and the designated area is not secure and/or easy to find, this will result in a failed delivery as above.

Currently, we are unable to provide delivery tracking details or advise what time your order will be delivered. 

If you enter the wrong address, advise us ASAP by phone. We will resend the product to the correct address, however, re-delivery fees apply if we aren't notified in time before the delivery is booked. 

If a product is lost or damaged in transit, contact us, and we will send you a replacement as soon as possible.
You cannot cancel your order because delivery is delayed.
We are not responsible for any loss or damage to products after you have received them.

How do I select free shipping during checkout?

Enter your postcode to calculate the correct shipping rates. Delivery is calculated based on your proximity to the CBD of the capital city of your state.  Location zones are determined by ILD, not government/council boundaries, for our transit rates. 

Please ensure you have selected the correct state. For example, suppose you are purchasing from the WA store and trying to deliver to VIC. In that case, the free option won't appear even if it falls under metro. This also means stock availability may not be correct if you have selected the incorrect state.

You can change the state from the drop-down menu in the top left corner of the website.

Where do you deliver?

We currently deliver everywhere except for the state of Tasmania (Sorry, Tassie!). We also cannot deliver to a PO Box.

How much is delivery?

Delivery is free to metropolitan suburbs and some areas just outside of this. Outer metro and regional transit will prompt a Request for Quote. We will respond within 2 hours with a freight quote for you to proceed with your order. We reserve the right to change shipping costs at any time. Delivery is calculated based on your proximity to the CBD of the capital city of your state. ILD, not council boundaries, determine location zones. 

Does someone need to sign for my order?

Yes. If no one is available to sign for your order and offload from the truck, this will result in a failed delivery. Failed deliveries are returned to the warehouse. We will contact you to:

- Collect your order yourself from the warehouse. We will provide you with a reference and pick-up address

- Have your order re-delivered at an additional cost. 

Orders over 80kg (4 pails) will require a forklift on site – see below.

We will only allow Authority to Leave (ATL) if there is a secure, easy-to-find delivery drop-off area. ILD accepts no responsibility for stolen or damaged goods that have an ATL. If the driver arrives at an ATL and the designated area is not secure and/or easy to find, this will result in a failed delivery as above.

P.O. Boxes 

We cannot deliver goods to PO Box addresses as all delivery orders are sent via courier services.

When will I receive my order?

Purchases before 11 am (AWST) to a metropolitan address will be processed (sent to the warehouse for picking) the same day and delivered the next day. Orders after 11 am (AWST) will be processed within 24 hours, and delivery can be expected the day after it's processed (sent to the warehouse for picking). Regional orders take three to five business days to deliver. Order timeframes aren't guaranteed due to circumstances beyond our control and exclude weekends and public holidays. 

Orders over 80kg

You will need a forklift on site to offload your order. If you don't have a forklift on site, you must include a tailgate delivery with your order. Tailgate deliveries acquire a fee of $50.00. This option will be presented for any orders above the weight limit. Suppose you do not select tailgate delivery and don't have a forklift in this instance. In that case, it will be a failed delivery and be returned to the warehouse where you then:

- Collect your order yourself from the warehouse. We will provide you with a reference and pick-up address

- Have your order re-delivered at an additional cost. 

Making a purchase

Making a purchase indicates acceptance of the final payment price displayed and of all ILD’s terms and conditions.

By providing a credit card or debit card and billing details, you are warranting that information provided is true and accurate with appropriate available funds.

Credit card numbers cannot be made publicly available as they are not stored on the website or visible in our CRM system. All information concerning your order is encrypted and can only be viewed by members of the ILD Customer Service Team with authorised access to that information. 

A purchase is not made until payment has been made in full and the order confirmation is provided.

ILD is not obliged to accept an order, and we reserve the right to reject an order at our own discretion for any reason. If an order is rejected, we will provide a full refund for any payment processed by the same method as paid.

We do not accept phone orders for the prices advertised on our website. If stock isn't available in your state, contact us via chat or email us at We either move it from another warehouse or we can advise if more is on its way and when stock will next be available. We will process an order manually and take a phone payment in this instance. Full payment must be received before stock will be moved.

Refunds will be issued using the same method as the original payment.

Assessing returns

Due to technical considerations, some products may need to be sent to the manufacturer for assessment to determine whether a replacement or refund is appropriate. Within the scope of Australian Consumer Law, ILD reserves the right to wait for the outcome of such an assessment before deciding if a refund or replacement will be issued. 

Disclaimer of Warranties

To the maximum extent permitted by law (most importantly, the Australian Consumer Law):

ILD, its contractors, agents, or employees disclaim liability for any damages whatsoever (including special, indirect or consequential) arising out of or in connection with the use or performance of products whether in contract, at common law or in equity, or on any other basis.

Stock Availability

There may be unforeseen circumstances in which it is not possible for us to supply a product. If this happens, we will cancel orders for that product. We will refund or cancel your payment.  We cannot accept liability for any other loss or damage arising from the cancellation.

ILD will endeavour to supply all items publicised on the website. Similarly, products will be removed from the website as soon as ILD becomes aware that those items are unavailable. However, there may be unavoidable occasions when:

- All or part of your order cannot be fulfilled immediately, or

- All or part of your order cannot be fulfilled at all. 

Where part of an order cannot be fulfilled immediately, the part that can be supplied will be dispatched as soon as possible.

Where part of your order cannot be fulfilled, you will be advised as soon as possible by email or telephone.

However, where a product that does not have a specified sales period becomes unavailable due to unexpected or high demand, and that item is ordered by you before ILD has withdrawn that item from the website, ILD will not be held responsible for the inability to complete that order.  In this instance, you will be advised ASAP by email or telephone.

Your rights under the Australian Consumer Law:

Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
