Unfortunately we do not ship to parcel lockers.

While our delivery partners are very reliable, from time to time there are situations that are out of either parties control. Instances such as increased delivery times due to the postal service delays or parcels that end up lost, stolen or damaged are out of the control of The Index. While these situations are unlikely, we recommend that you select signature on delivery, express tracking or insurance at checkout. At The Index we take great pride in ensuring that all orders are packed in line with our very high standards, we cannot be held responsible for damaged or lost items in transit.

Please note that Australia is a fast country and there are a lot of remote locations which we send products to. Some deliveries will take an extended period of time to reach these locations. If you wish to maintain the highest quality of your cigars while in transit, we recommend that you select the relative humidity control add on at checkout. This will ensure that your cigars are kept at the most appropriate humidity and temperature while in transit.
