However, during the very busy back to school period (throughout January) we are unable to sell items over the counter. During this period you will be required to place an order and either collect your order from your school or have it delivered to you. You may also choose to place a Click and Collect order - in this case you will receive a text message once your order has been packed and is ready for collection from our Hallam office.
If your parcel requires a signature, you will have received a tracking number via email which you can use to track the location of your parcel. This tracking number is emailed to you by our staff when your order is processed. Parcels can be tracked on Australia Post's website - auspost.com.au.
In some cases, parcels may be delivered by members of our staff (depending upon your location). The email that you receive when your order is processed will advise you of this and estimate a delivery time.
If your school doesn't have a collection date or if your books are to be home delivered you will need to pay straight away.
Our standard delivery charges are $9.50 for orders under $100, and $15 for orders over $100. This covers all orders placed in one transaction, provided the delivery address is the same. For example, you can order for a Year 7 student and a Year 9 student at the same time and you will only be charged once.
Most schools also have a period where these charges are waived if your order is placed on time. Please check your school's booklist or your school's individual page for details of this offer.
Refunds or exchanges will only be made after this time on items that are faulty, or in other cases at the sole and absolute discretion of Lamont Books.
Electronic books, digital items, DVD's and calculators are firm sale. No refunds or exchanges are available on these items unless required by the Australian Consumer Law so please choose carefully.
