Shipping Frequently Asked Questions
Can I provide authority to leave for my delivery?
Your parcel will be delivered by a delivery service who does not take responsibility for any loss or damage. In certain instances, it may not be possible for a shipping carrier to leave a parcel with ATL instructions.
For example sometimes it is not possible because of a secured building or complex and lack of instructions on how to leave the package at that location.
What happens if my air conditioner is damaged during transit?
Your purchase is in the safe hands of Alpha & Omega Air Store! When you order from us, your products will be well-packaged and shipped to arrive safely at their destination.

Do you ship to PO Boxes?
The larger items such as air conditioners can only be shipped to residential or commercial addresses. We are unable to accommodate custom delivery requests, such as calling in advance or on arrival, scheduling specific delivery dates and times, or leaving the package in a specific location like a PO box.
How long does it take for your air conditioners to be dispatched?
Orders placed before 2pm on a weekday are processed and shipped the same day, excluding weekends and public holidays. After 2pm, orders will be shipped on the next business day or as soon as possible thereafter depending upon the customer's location for in-stock items. Orders placed after 12:00 pm AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time) Friday are only processed Monday morning with an exception to shipping times being made if urgent delivery is requested by emailing us at email@example.com If you need your order urgently please do not hesitate to get in touch via email so we may process it sooner!
Shipping Policy Notes
Our delivery policy requires a person to be available at the address to accept the delivery. We require this because we need to be shown a printed online receipt from our website that proves when the purchase was made. Make sure to thoroughly inspect the goods when receiving them to ensure that they are in perfect condition before signing the delivery docket.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much will delivery cost me?
With one-click checkout, we make shipping easy and fast! Whether you order a single product or multiple products with different types of items, our flat rate charge will be applied to the highest item.
See the Shipping Tab or our shipping policy for more information.
Do I need to be at home when my unit is delivered?
Yes, someone must be available to accept delivery as we require a signature as proof of receiving goods. We recommend having an additional person at the door with you when items are delivered so that they can help bring your air conditioner inside.
How do I decide the size of an air conditioner?
- When it comes to deciding which air conditioner is right for you, the first thing that matters is how powerful a device will be required. Air conditioners are rated by BTU and power output in kilowatts; however, buying an oversized unit isn't as economical since they use more energy than smaller ones. What's important when purchasing one is determining what size room your home needs cooling down from- so don’t forget the appropriate sized appliance!
When selecting the right size air conditioner for your space, the below applies:
- For a room 10m2 to 20m2, a 2.6kW unit should cool the room;
- For a room 20m2 to 30m2, a 3.5kW unit should cool the room;
- For a room 30m2 to 45m2, a 5-6kW unit should cool the room; and
- For a room 45m2 to 65m2, a 7-8kW unit should cool the room.
However, we always recommend seeking expert advice before making your final decision. Our friendly, knowledgeable team members can help you find the right solution for your home and your budget.
