Delivery & Returns
Delivery and Returns Policy
Due to the unique nature of each order, delivery of your items will be oraganised after your order has been placed.
1. Once we have received your order, we will contact you within 24 hours via email with a confirmation of your order, a copy of your invoice, and information on our delivery services for you to choose from.
2. You can speak to us via the phone, or email us with your delivery information and choice of service.
3. With this information, we can come back to you with information and a quote for delivery of your item. You will then be sent an invoice for delivery and your order will soon be on its way!
Please ote, that your order will be processed once payment has been received, but production and creation of your item will not commence until delivery has been settled.
1. Our delivery partners and us. For some deliveries it will be us arriving to deliver your piece, however sometimes we just can’t get away from the studio. So, we use various third-party delivery partners to deliver our products to you. We will notify you of whom this delivery partner is after you place your order with us and closer to your delivery date.
2. Delivery charges. Delivery information will be taken at the time of purchase, however, you will be updated on delivery dates and charges once your order has been processed. We will then get in touch to organise your delivery and offer you range of options for you to choose from. We endeavour to keep delivery costs as low as possible but delivery charges will vary from order to order based on a number of factors including delivery location, access and size of order etc.
Where stated, we will offer free delivery for some products. However, on most of our products delivery charges will apply. Free delivery is specific to the delivery address specified in the Order and whether or not you have chosen to use a premium delivery partner or service (e.g. next day or special delivery service such as a white glove service). Once we have discussed delivery options, we will find the best service and quote you for delivery. Delivery must be paid for in full before any product is shipped. You will be made aware of such applicable delivery charges once we have discussed delivery and arrangements have been made.
After the order has been placed and payment taken, delivery charges will be added once the order has been completed. Any delivery costs, domestic or international will be quoted after the order has been placed.
3. Estimated delivery date. Everything we make is handmade and made to order. Our lead time on all products outside of bespoke and tailored services is 6-8 weeks unless otherwise stated. Once your order has been processed, we will contact you to discuss delivery options and arrange your delivery. You will have a range of options from collection, courier, white glove and installation services. Depending on your project, the cost of these services may vary. Once discussed we will find the best option for you and quote you for delivery.
4. Delivery dates and time slots. We are always willing to make arrangements to make sure you receive your products on time.
If you require a specific delivery date or time slot, please make the team aware before you place your order. We can then make you aware of whether your desired date or time is possible or not. If you do not make the team aware or the date is or time is not possible, we will contact you once the project is completed to arrange delivery. If we cannot reach you once your order has been processed, the order will continue. We will attempt to contact you as soon as possible to arrange delivery.
If your date or time slot is available, additional charges will apply. You will be quoted for delivery for that time once your project has been completed or is nearing completion. All delivery charges must be paid in full before any product is shipped.
There may be circumstances outside of our, or our delivery partners control that effect your requested or agreed upon delivery date or time slot. Unfortunately, these things can happen, but rest assured we will do everything in our power to get them to you safely, securely and as quickly as possible. If there is an event that effects your delivery, we will contact you as soon as possible to discuss your options.
For more information contact email@example.com
5. Changes to estimated delivery date. If there are events outside of either our, or our delivery partners control, we will notify you as soon as possible via phone or email. If these changes or events effect your order delivery date, we will update you as soon as we have reorganised and successfully arranged a new delivery date for you.
We, or our delivery partner(s), will notify you of reasonable changes to the estimated delivery date where events outside of our or our delivery partner’s control delay or prevent delivery from taking place at the original estimated date and/or time. Delivery of the Products will take place when we deliver them to the address that you gave to us. If we cannot deliver your Products within 30 days of your estimated delivery date, we will:
a) let you know;
b) give you the option to rearrange your order; and
c) if necessary, give you a refund (Refunds not applicable to Bespoke or Tailored items)
6. Information we may require from you. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the Products to you, for example, your name and address. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for delays in supplying the Products which are caused by you not providing us with the information we need.
6. When delivery has taken place. You are responsible for the Products when delivery has taken place. In other words, the risk in the Products passes to you when you take possession of the Products.
