Our factory will be closed over the XMAS and New Year period from:
Friday 21st Dec 2018 at 12PM
and will be open for business again
Wednesday 2nd Jan 2019 at 8AM
Our website will still be taking orders during this period, however they will not commence manufacturing until we are back at work.
Our last deliveries and freight dispatch will be on
Thursday 20th Dec 2018.
CUT-OFFS for pre 2019 deliveries are as follows:
SHUTTERS: 17th Oct 2018
Soft Furnishing: 23rd Nov 2018
All other Blinds: 30th Nov 2018
We charge a flat rate fee per order, not per item Australia wide that varies per state:
At MyDirectBlinds.com.au we don’t like to tout free delivery and then build the charge into the price of the blinds like other websites, we don’t find that to be an honest business practice.
We only charge one flat rate for the entire order (all custom made products) and we highly encourage you to compare our end price with that of our competitors, we will often come out on top.
$29 for VIC
$35 for NSW, TAS, SA
$45 for QLD
$53 for WA
$65 for NT
Our extra heavy and bulky items (Plantation Shutters) will attract a 12.5% surcharge on the subtotal for that item only
Ready made curtains are shipped free

Freight Damage and Missing Parts
Upon receiving your order please be sure to inspect boxes carefully, alert your driver and refuse delivery if you observe any obvious damage. If you find damaged items, please do not discard the boxes! We highly encourage you to take pictures of the damage and contact us immediately (within 24 hours ideally) so we can fix the problem or resend a replacement at no cost to you.
If any parts are missing from your order, please contact us within 30 calendar days and we’ll help you get replacement parts. If it has been more than 30 calendar days since you received your order, there will be a charge for any requested parts.
Delivery times given are estimates based on normal production and shipping times, and may vary depending on the product.
- Estimated delivery times include working days after our receipt of your completed order and exclude weekends, holidays and factory closing days.
- On occasion, there may also be delays caused by back ordered merchandise, factories slowing or stopping production to take inventory, temporary factory overload, or other unforeseen problems.
- Estimated delivery times may also vary heavily during peak seasons such as holidays and end of year.
Please Note: We will do our best to notify you the estimated day of delivery, when the items are dispatched from our premises we will update your order status on our track order page, you will also receive an email of the updated order status. It is your responsibility to ensure someone is home to accept delivery, If you are not at home or if there is no one to accept delivery of your order, the driver will leave your order in the safest and most sheltered place and take a photo for proof of delivery. We do this to keep the cost of the end product low, as re-deliveries cost extra, on top of this it can be cumbersome to collect larger width blinds from the depot, for this reason we operate on a an ‘authority to leave’ delivery method.
If you don’t want this to happen, please nominate an address at the time of purchase, where you are certain that someone will be there to accept delivery of your order during normal business hours of 9am-5pm, such as a neighbour or place of work.
Although we will cover damages sustained during transit, we cannot be held liable for any damages after the order has been delivered at the nominated address. Please leave instructions in the checkout if you will not be home and would like it to be left in a specific place, ie. Around the side. The inner packaging of the blinds are in a sealed plastic cover and will be resistant to the weather.
Discontinued and/or Back Ordered Items
At times, products or colors are discontinued or placed on back order by raw material suppliers we work with. We make every effort to remove discontinued items as soon as we are made aware of them. Whenever we receive notice of back ordered items, we will notify you immediately and give you the option to change or cancel your order.
