Domestic Shipping

Modern Pets offers free shipping* on orders over $29 to most metro cities and major regional centres across Australia (excludes oversized items**). Simply use the handy shipping calculator on the product page to see if your suburb qualifies for free shipping. If you are not eligible for free shipping, the cost of shipping will be calculated based on the weight of the order and your location. You will be able to see the shipping cost and estimated delivery time via the shipping calculator before you proceed to payment. 

We regret that our warehouse is not accessible to the public. As such, we do not offer a pick-up option. Your order will generally be shipped from our distribution centre, which is located in Melbourne, within 1-2 working days of receiving payment excluding public holidays & weekends.

The majority of our parcels are delivered by Australia Post however occasionally we work with other courier partners to provide the most efficient delivery service with the most reasonable price. Express shipping is now available Australia-wide for most products.

Refer below for estimated delivery times:

  • Delivery within metro Melbourne: 2 - 5 business days 
  • Delivery from Melbourne to other cities and large towns in VIC: 3 - 6 business days
  • Delivery within metro Sydney: 3 - 7 business days
  • Delivery from Melbourne to other interstate locations: 4 - 14 business days

Please allow 2 extra business days for personalised products as each item is custom made.

All orders will be sent with signature required unless ATL (Authority to Leave) is requested. This means if no-one is home the parcel will be taken to your local Post Office for collection. Australia Post no longer leave calling cards as they solely rely on customers to keep an eye on their deliveries via the tracking number and/or Australia Post App. Please aim to be home on delivery days as re-deliveries will incur additional costs. If ATL is selected, we will not cover replacement costs if the parcel goes missing.

If you have problems with your delivery please contact us at and we'll always work with you to address any issues.

*Free shipping means the cost of shipping is built into the price of the item, so delivery costs may still be deducted from refunds for returned items. If you require further information about our refunds policy please visit our Return Policy page.

Oversized Products

**Oversized items are products that exceed the maximum weight and size requirements by Australia Post and can only be transported via courier.

Shipping for oversized products is free only for Melbourne customers. You can see the shipping cost to your suburb before placing your order via the shipping calculator. The shipping calculator can be found on the product page and cart page.

Each country has different laws regarding imports from abroad and you may be required to pay additional fees on delivery such as customs clearance charges, duties and taxes. Our shipping rate covers door to door delivery only and does not include import fees if applicable.
