A ready to Collect email will be sent once these conditions are met.

Click and Collect is available from all company owned stores. If your products are in stock we aim to have your order ready as soon as possible. Click and Collect may be unavailable during major sales events and promotions. In peak trading periods or where item/s in your order are not available and need to be sourced from another fulfilment location, this may result in delays in fulfilment. In the event of circumstances beyond our control, for example, extreme weather, a flood or fire, we shall not be liable for any delay or failure to make your order available for collection within the estimated timeframe. Collection from stores can only be done during store opening hours unless equipped with external lockers. Store opening hours can be found here.

Click and Collect orders cannot be modified or cancelled once your order has been confirmed. In this instance the order will be collected in your nominated store and then standard returns policy applies. Your Click and Collect order will be held at the nominated store for 14 days, if you cannot collect your order within this period you must contact the store to arrange an extension. Your nominated store will also make every effort to contact you for further instructions. If your order is not collected within 14 days and no extension has been arranged, our customer care team will issue a refund using the same payment method. You will be notified after this has taken place. An administration fee may apply in the instance where you fail to collect your goods within the required time frame.

  • Individual or group engineering projects for community competitions
  • Sporting individuals/ambassadors that include and benefit the greater community
  • Communities and organisations that support people in need
  • Community clubs and organisations supporting the greater community (e.g. CWA, technology assistance programs)

The JEG does not limit any community group or individual from applying however communities that fall outside the set criteria are unlikely to receive Sponsorship. Examples of such communities include:

  • Sporting clubs/teams with the sole purpose of enabling members to play
  • Political campaigns and activities
  • Communities with a religious only purpose

Sponsorship agreements last for one instance/year, and a new application must be submitted for any subsequent instance/year.

If monetary sponsorship is provided by the JEG it will be remitted via EFT payment. It is an expectation that a registered business will supply an invoice for the agreed sponsorship funds upon request.

By accepting sponsorship from the JEG the sponsored organisation, group or individual agrees that the relevant affiliated company names of the JEG specifically Jaycar.

By accepting sponsorship from the JEG the sponsored organisation, group or individual agrees to supply photos/videos/testimonials/updates as required by the JEG (if applicable); and also acknowledges and gives full rights for the JEG to publish comments/testimonials/photos/videos on company affiliated websites, social channels and all other methods of promotion.

Products/funds are supplied for the agreed sponsorship purpose only. If proof showing the designated purpose is requested by the JEG from the sponsored entity, the sponsored entity must provide it. Failure to do so will result in a breach of the agreement with the sponsored entity required to return the donated item/s/monies.

The JEG does not accept responsibility for products not meeting performance or usage expectations nor any liability for consequential loss from the use of such products.
