Shipping and Returns
At Vitality 4 Life, we strive to ensure each and every order is delivered to our customers efficiently and effectively. All orders placed on our Australian website are sent from our Australian warehouse in Ballina, NSW.
We use and trust Toll Ipec couriers and Australia Post to deliver our wide range of products, from juicers and blenders to Pilates equipment, treadmills and infrared saunas.
We are proud to offer FREE shipping for most domestic and kitchen products Australia wide for all orders over $50 to mainland Australia. Orders under $50 are charged a flat fee of $10. It is just one of the ways we try to help every individual have access to healthy living products.

Freight on larger items - saunas, commercial food dehydrators, Pilates Equipment, garden composters, treadmills
We have recently integrated a freight calculator at the checkout so you can automatically know what the freight costs are on these larger products. PLEASE NOTE: Vitality 4 Life subsidised 50% of the true cost of the freight charges.
We are able to deliver to an address without a signature if you authorize "Authority to Leave". Simply check the box 'Authority to Leave' in Checkout along with any instructions for the courier. If "Authority to Leave" is selected and parcel is delivered, we (Vitality 4 Life), hold no responsibility if the parcel is then missing from the shipping address. Selection of "Authority to Leave" is deemed by our couriers as a signature from the recipient.
Please note for large items, delivery of these products will be to your front door only or the ground level of an apartment building and as these are large items we recommend you have assistance on hand to help you move them inside the premises.

Problem with your order?
If for any reason there is an issue with your order, please contact us via phone, email [email protected] or using our live-chat facilities so that we can assist you.
All items listed on www.vitality4life.com.au are for shipping throughout Australia only. However, we have both offices and warehouses globally and most items are generally able to be shipped to most locations (please note RRP prices will vary depending on location). Feel free to contact us via phone, email us or using our live-chat facilities for international shipping options.
At all times we do our very best to ensure our stock levels are accurate on our store; however in rare circumstances items may become unavailable. In these instances we will contact you immediately and work towards the best possible resolution.
We are so confident that you will love your Vitality 4 Life Approved Product that we offer our customers a 30 day returns policy on all our items. This means if the product is not as described you will receive a full refund minus a $20 flat fee return freight charge.
**** Note – the flat rate of $20 return freight charge does not apply to larger items including saunas, composters, Pilates equipment, commerical dehydrators, commercial food composters and Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers. In these cases, we will use our courier to book the return freight back to Vitality 4 Life at commercial freight rates (much cheaper than normal courier or postal rates) and this subsidised charge will be invoiced to you.
If you have any concerns on the return freight charges for these larger items for change of mind, please contact us here with any questions.
We want you to be happy with your investment, so please contact us if for any reason you are not satisfied. In most cases we are able to work with our customers and give them the help and guidance they need to get the most out of their product.
If you would like to arrange a return for a product, please contact us prior to returning the product. We will then issue you with a Return Authorisation Form (RAF). If an item is received back into our warehouse without this form it may be rejected and returned to sender.
If the item you received is damaged or faulty we may ask for photos to be sent through prior to the return; this helps us to quickly work towards the easiest solution and is also passed through to our dispatching/product development teams to improve our procedures and processes.
Please note the cost of shipping products back to our service centre for a warranty claim or return assessment are covered by the customer. Vitality 4 Life will cover the cost of sending out the repaired or replacement product to the customer once the warranty claim request has been resolved.
If you purchase through AfterPay and wish to return your items before your first Afterpay payment is due, you have the option to cancel the entire payment plan which means you pay nothing apart from the $20 change of mind return freight. ***See above for return of larger items. This allows you to try before you buy. If the first payment instalment has already been made when you return the items to us, we can cancel the rest of your payment plan as well as refunding the initial payment you have made. If you have purchased multiple items but only wish to return certain items and keep your favourites this is still fine. We’ll just remove the items you have returned from your Afterpay payment plan. Your original instalment amounts will remain the same and your final payment/s will be less or cancelled depending on the return amount. You can log in to your AfterPay account to view your updated payment schedule at any time.
