Geraldton Hill is a boutique producer, and as a result, most products are made to order so a weeks’ notice is likely required for manufacture from the time of order to dispatch. We are always working on a quicker turn around for you, but to ensure freshness we do not hold a large amount of stock on hand. If you require a quicker turn around, please let us know and we can discuss the best options to meet your needs.
Please include a preferred delivery date in the comments box before submitting your order.
If you are in the vicinity of the Geraldton Hill studio, you are always more than welcome to stop in at the studio to pick up your order. Please arrange an appointment time to ensure it is ready and we are not out making a delivery or collecting supplies.
Geraldton Hill uses Australia Post or selects couriers and carriers for deliveries depending on the delivery location.

Care of your Geraldton Hill order
Geraldton Hill is not responsible for stock that is damaged after receipt of delivery as a result of not being stored in an environment suitable for quality couverture chocolate products. Chocolate is kindly forgiving, but will not withstand greatly fluctuating temperatures such as being stored in a normal refrigerator then moved to a warm environment. This generates condensation creating a faulty appearance. Whilst this affect does not change the taste it certainly compromises the beauty of the product. For optimum product shelf life quality and longevity it is recommended that Geraldton Hill products be stored in a cool dry spot away from direct sun light as close to 16-18 degrees as possible. Geraldton Hill is always available to discuss customer questions or concerns, so please do not hesitate to contact us. Geraldton Hill is committed to manufacturing quality products and customer satisfaction.
Hot Weather Policy
Geraldton Hill takes precautionary packaging measures for hot weather delivery protection. We will assess the weather on and around the day of pickup and delivery and will advise you if a hold on a delivery is deemed required for a more temperature friendly day.

We take great pride in the unique decadent products we hand create for you and strive for 100% complete satisfaction and enjoyment.
