Our Click & Fit prices include full installation of the product, a wheel alignment and consumables. As an extra level of service, it is expected that your nominated workshop also provides a free suspension inspection and also a free brake inspection. All Fulcrum stores, including franchises offer these services and much more.
In some cases, Fulcrum fitment partners are independent workshops and – whilst we strongly encourage them to offer free services such as a suspension check or brake inspection – it is at their discretion as to whether or not they choose to offer these as part of the Click & Fit program. Some independent workshops may choose not to provide a free suspension check or a free brake inspection.
In some rare circumstances, key suspension components that are required to be adjusted during your suspension install might be rusted or seized. If this is the case Fulcrum’s Click & Fit price does not include or cover any extra labour required to correct seized or rusted steering components.
Vehicles being Clean for Fulcrum Servicing
This mainly applies to 4WDs. When your vehicle is being serviced, the exterior of your vehicles (body & undercarriage) needs to be clean prior to having your car serviced by our workshop staff.
We ask this, because in some cases customers have arrived at our workshops after a weekend of 4wding. Where their car is full of mud, this has stopped our Suspension Technicians from being able to work on the underbody as mud had caked all the underbody components, making it impossible to carry out any suspension related work.
It is NOT expected that your car be polished / squeaky clean before a Fulcrum service. But it is expected that the underbody of the vehicle is not excessively dirty, so that the below points are met.
The vehicle is not in a state where it poses danger to the staff member working on the car.
Work can be carried out on the vehicle without hinderance.
The vehicle does not make the suspension workshop dirty.
If the above criteria is not met. Then at the Workshop Managers' discretion, your vehicle could be rejected by the installer until the vehicle’s undercarriage is clean.
This ruling is for Click & Fit orders, general servicing, suspension upgrades and other vehicle modifications Fulcrum and its Network of Installers undertake. This is not a rule that is only applied to Fulcrum but is a general rule across all automotive workshops carrying out vehicle services and installations in accordance with Australian OHS/WHS guidelines.
What areas are covered by Free Shipping?
If you live within a popular metro location, then your area is considered metro and you will be offered free shipping. Please note that If you live on the Australian coast, that does not mean you are subject to free shipping.
Our free shipping policy is determined by densely populated metro locations and the viability of distance travelled from our distribution centres. We are constantly expanding our warehousing, so areas covered by free shipping are subject to change.
If you are charged shipping at checkout even though you deem your area to be a metro location, this means that your address has not qualified for free shipping due to the distance that must be travelled to deliver your product from our closest warehouse.
If you live within a metro area and have not received a free shipping option, please message we are happy to clarify shipping manually
Currently the two major exceptions to our free shipping rule, are all areas within Western Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory.
How long will my item take to arrive?
Express shipping times and free shipping times are only to be counted once the order has been shipped from our warehouses. Our free shipping and express shipping services both have the same order processing times. We first have to raise the order, then we send it to one of our warehouses for processing and once ready it will be shipped from the warehouse. The difference between express and free shipping services, is the time it takes for the item to be transported from our warehouse to your address.
Your product will generally arrive within 1-2 weeks. Shipping times vary based on your location, current stock levels, order amounts and the shipping service you select. The shipping times supplied on the website checkout are only an estimate for after your order has left our warehouse.
We send out tracking numbers with every order, so you can track every stage of the shipping process once your order has left our warehouse.
If you have any questions about shipping times, please feel free to call us or send us a message.
