Disclaimers

Images

-All product images on the Home Upholsterer website are for illustration purposes only. Colours, shades and packaging may therefore vary from product image and/or description.

-Colour images and swatch charts available on the Home Upholsterer website should be considered a close rendition to the actual colour, however they cannot be considered 100% accurate due to variation between computer monitor settings.

Foam Disclaimers

-Home Upholsterer has made every effort to provide an accurate description of the different foam grades and the best recommendations based on the application (if selected).

-As selecting foam is highly preference-based and all foam is custom cut, Home Upholsterer cannot accept returns for change of mind. If a customer is unhappy with the feel of their foam, they can contact Home Upholsterer to discuss an alternative or solution at an additional cost.

-As all foam is cut to the dimensions provided, it is the customer's responsibility to measure and provide dimensions accurately. Home Upholsterer recommends that customers make full use of the guides available to assist them in obtaining and entering the correct measurements. If a customer believes their foam has been cut incorrectly it is recommended that they contact the Home Upholsterer team promptly upon receipt, to discuss this further.

Fabric Disclaimer

-While the fabric colours displayed should be considered a close rendition to the actual colour, they cannot be considered 100% accurate due to variation between computer monitor settings. To obtain an accurate indication of the fabric colour, Home Upholsterer recommends requesting a cutting, or visiting a showroom to view the fabric in person. Please note there may be some variation between fabrics from different dye batches.

-All fabrics are special order, Home Upholsterer does not offer returns for change of mind. We will not offer returns it you are unhappy with the colour, or the item appears differently than online. To avoid this, please arrange a cutting.

-All clearance fabrics are final sale and are not valid for exchange or refund.

Delivery

Delivery Times

-Whilst Home Upholsterer endeavours to dispatch all stocked items within 24 hours from receipt of order, delivery times cannot be guaranteed. An estimated delivery time can only be provided once the order has been picked and courier has been booked.

-Once dispatched with a courier, deliveries are in the hands of the designated freight company. Home Upholsterer will advise the freight carrier and consignment note number by email. The customer is able to track the consignment and call the carrier for a more accurate ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) on the order.

-Home Upholsterer cannot schedule a customer’s delivery with the freight company. Home Upholsterer is also unable to request for a courier to call on approach.

Addresses

-Home Upholsterer only uses courier services for delivery. Home Upholsterer orders are not dispatched with Australia Post. As such it is not possible to deliver to Post office boxes. The customer is required to provide a residential or business street address at the time of order.

Authority to Leave Goods

-Where possible, Home Upholsterer recommends that customers use a work address (including business name), where someone will be present to sign during regular business hours.

-The customer has an option at the time of order, to give an ‘Authority to Leave’ the items without a signature. In order to avoid delays, Home Upholsterer recommends providing this authority, if there is a chance that no one will be home.

-Home Upholsterer recommends that any specific instructions, regarding where the goods are to be left should be included under delivery comments, at the time of order. Home Upholsterer will include these instructions when booking the courier, however Home Upholsterer cannot guarantee that the courier will follow these instructions.

-Home Upholsterer does not accept responsibility if goods are damaged or stolen as a result of being left, if an authority to leave is provided. Please see further information regarding this under Title & Risk.

Re-Delivery Fees

-The re-delivery process and re-delivery fees are dependent on the courier company who the order was dispatched with.

-In the event that no one was available at the delivery address to sign for the goods, and authority to leave has not been provided, most courier companies will charge a re-delivery fee. Home Upholsterer reserves the right to pass on all courier fees related to the attempted delivery of an order.

-If a delivery has been attempted, most courier companies will leave a note card advising of their attempt. The goods will then be returned to the depot. Some courier companies will contact the customer to arrange re-delivery, however this is not guaranteed.

-If a customer receives a card from a courier, Home Upholsterer recommends that they contact the courier company directly to arrange a suitable re-delivery time. At this stage, the customer may also be able to give the courier an authority to leave, in case the address is unattended again. To potentially avoid a re-delivery fee, the customer may wish to enquire with the courier company regarding whether they allow for orders to be collected from the nearest depot.

Damaged or Misplaced Delivery

-Home Upholsterer requires the damage or loss to be reported as soon as it is noticed. If an item is received that the customer believes has been damaged in transit, the customer is not obligated to sign for the goods, the driver will return the goods to the depot and lodge a damaged goods report.

Collection by Own Courier

-Home Upholsterer allows customers to organize their own courier to collect goods. If this arrangement is preferred, the customer must notify Home Upholsterer to confirm.  Home Upholsterer will advise if items are available and provide an indication of when the goods will be picked, packaged and ready for collection.

-Home Upholsterer requires the customer to advise the name of the courier company collecting and provide us with any reference numbers/documentation required by the courier company to fix to the goods in advance.

Returns

-Home Upholsterer does not offer returns for change of mind on special order items such as special-order fabric or custom-cut foam. Please see further information regarding this under Disclaimers.

-If an item is faulty upon receipt or is not as described, Home Upholsterer can offer a replacement, exchange or a refund if preferred.  If the goods you received are incorrect or faulty, the customer must notify Home Upholsterer promptly.  For faulty products, Home Upholsterer may require a photograph to demonstrate the fault and identify the issue.

-All returns are subject to Home Upholsterer receiving the item back within 7 days of purchase, unless otherwise authorised by Home Upholsterer. Items must be returned with their original packaging and, unless they were damaged prior to the customer receiving them, must still be in an unused and saleable condition.

-Only once returned items are received can we can a replacement, exchange or refund be arranged.

Title & Risk

-Title of the goods purchased from Home Upholsterer does not pass from Home Upholsterer to the customer until full payment has been received.
