Cheap Chips COVID 19 Update

Date Posted:26 August 2020 

CHEAP CHIPS is open: Cheap Chip remains open during the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to ship your orders throughout Australia. Australia Post collects your orders Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays) at approximately 2:15 PM so to ensure we have your order ready to go, please have the order completed by 2:00 PM EST. 

AUSTRALIA POST: Australia Post have advised some delays in the estimated delivery times due to the increased workload caused by COVID-19. They are doing their best to get your order to you as fast as possible. Express Post is the fastest method followed by Standard Post in most cases. We also offer a DL size envelope for non-urgent smaller orders. All methods include tracking.

AUSTRALIA POST (VICTORIAN CUSTOMERS):  Australia Post has experienced a significant increase in demand as Victorians have increased their online buying due to stage 4 lockdowns. So much so, that our parcel volumes in Victoria for August are up approximately 150%.

To make sure Australia Post can still safely deliver for your customers, the following changes are immediately necessary:

  • Victoria destined Parcels: With the massive demand and workforce capacity constraints, we foresee an additional 3 day delay for deliveries in Victoria. This is both within and into Victoria. This means, any lodgements made in other States destined for Victoria may be held in those States for up to 3 business days to allow Victoria to work through the present demand.
  • Father's Day: For deliveries across Australia, we recommend at least the following lodgement dates for delivery before Father's Day on Sunday 6 September 2020:     Parcel Post and letters – Friday 28 August 2020    Express Post parcels – Monday 31 August 2020.  For items lodged after these dates, whilst we will try our best, we do not expect to be able to meet delivery for Father's Day.

PICK UP: You can still collect your orders from our Brisbane address to save on the delivery charges.
