How do home deliveries operate?

  1. All newspaper home deliveries are made by a driver throwing the publication from a moving motor vehicle.
  2. Whilst every endeavour is made to have the Newspaper land in an easily accessible position on your property Newspapers may end up in a variety of locations. Please bear in mind that obstacles & conditions such a sloping driveways, fences, garden lights, ponds and numerous vehicles in or around the property can have an adverse effect on where the publications finally come to rest.
  3. The main newspapers we deliver are The West Australian, Sunday Times & Albany Advertiser however, there are a wide range of newspapers that can be delivered please see our publications list for more information or contact the office.
  4. Albany News Delivery also home delivers weekly and monthly magazines. These publications are thrown along with the Newspaper or can be setup as a standalone subscription.
  5. We endeavour to complete all Newspapers deliveries by 7am each day. Issues such as late delivery from The West Australian or Sunday Times, inclement weather and various driver issues can affect delivery times. Please check our homepage & Facebook page for delivery updates.
