STAGE 4 COVID RESTRICTIONS
Our Chapel Street, Windsor Showroom is closed during the Victorian Stage 4 restrictions, however our online store is open and we are still delivering Australia wide. For any enquiries, you can still call us on 03 9005 6253, Monday to Friday between 10am - 5 pm, or speak to our live chat consultants. If you would like to view swatches, we can arrange to send these to you.
Our main warehouse is located in Minto, NSW, which is where the majority of our orders are dispatched from. We also have a warehouse in Tullarmarine which is still functioning within the guidelines of the Stage 4 restrictions.
All deliveries are now contactless in Victoria. You can choose to provide the courier with authority to leave the package somewhere safe without a signature. If you would like this option, please note this in the comments box when you place your order.
Or if you would like to “sign” for your delivery, this now means that you will need to be present for the delivery, and the courier will ask for your name and sign for you, whilst taking into consideration the social distance requirement.
Thanks for your support and stay safe!

HOW WILL MY ORDER BE DELIVERED?
During Stage 4 COVD restrictions in Victoria, all deliveries will be contactless. You can choose to provide the courier with authority to leave the package somewhere safe without a signature. If you would like this option, please note this in the comments box when you place your order.
Parcels are sent via courier, so we are unable to deliver to PO boxes. If there is nobody present to sign, the merchandise will be taken back to the courier depot and a card will be left with a number for you to contact to arrange a free redelivery.
You can also provide the courier with "authority to leave the parcel". This means that no signature is required and the courier can leave the parcel at your door or where specified. This also means that you take full responsibility for the safety of the merchandise once it is left by the courier. You can enter "authority to leave" into the customer comments box when you place your order and checkout.
If you have a small parcel, it may be more convenient to have it delivered to your work address.
It is the customer's responsibility to provide the correct delivery address, and an address which is accessible by the courier. If an incorrect address or non-accessible address is supplied, the customer will be required to pay for the redelivery cost.
HOW MUCH DOES DELIVERY COST?
Delivery is calculated at the checkout and is specific to each item, as we have many products in various weights, sizes and levels of fragility. You can view the cost of delivery by checking your shopping cart - this will calculate the price when you enter your state and postcode.
If you would like to return an item, you can exchange it for another item or receive store credit. We only issue refunds if a product is found to be faulty.
HOW DO I RETURN SOMETHING?
To make a return, you must contact customer care within 7 days of receipt of the merchandise to receive a return authorisation. It will be the customer's responsibility to send it back, however if the item is large or particularly fragile, we can arrange for you to use our courier service. Provided the item arrives in the original condition, unused and in the original packaging, we will provide you with a store credit (less any courier costs) or item for exchange. Unfortunately light globes cannot be returned. Refunds are only given in the case of faulty products.
If an item is damaged on arrival, contact firstname.lastname@example.org within 2 days of receipt of the item. We will ask you to email images of the item for assessment. Items found to be damaged will be replaced or the price refunded to you.
