What happens if I need to make a change to my order after I have submitted it?
Generally, orders cannot be changed after the order has been placed as Pete has usually sourced the products from the producers themselves. If you would like to discuss your order, contact Carmel on 0487 777 026 or by emailing email@example.com
How do I contact The Milkman’s Back?
I have seen multiple prices for the same product, how do I know which is accurate?
The prices for each item of produce is subject to change from time to time. This is due to a number of factors, including demand, season and price set by the producer themselves. If you are ever unsure, make sure to check the prices on our website.
What happens if I’m not home for my delivery?
You will often find Pete delivers outside of the standard 9am – 5pm working hours. If Pete is delivering at a different time, he will always contact you in advance and ask you to leave an esky outside your house. Should you have specific delivery requirements, please enter this in your order details upon checkout.
Can I still purchase through The Milkman’s Back if I live outside the delivery areas?
Unfortunately, we are limited with the number of locations we can deliver to, and there are only so many hours in a day. We are always working hard to expand the number of suburbs we deliver to, so if your suburb is not on our list, feel free to contact us – here.
Can I cancel my order?
Once an order has been placed, it cannot be cancelled as Pete has usually sourced the products from the producers themselves. If you would like to discuss your order, contact Carmel on 0487 777 026 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
