We ship some products to New Zealand. Look for the Silver Fern symbol in the product specs to see which items qualify. The cost is $15 AUD per item. If Silver Fern symbol is not featured in the specs, it means we are unable to ship that item to New Zealand, and if you place an order, your money will be refunded.
We can also arrange international deliveries to certain countries. Please contact us to receive an international shipping quotation - this is not automatically calculated through the website. Some orders are subject to state sales tax will be billed to you upon arrival in your country. You will be required to email a copy of your photo ID i.e. driver's license or passport, before we ship.
ORDERING ITEMS WITH A DELIVERY TIME OF 10 WEEKS AND OVER

We will contact you just prior to the item arriving to organise the balance of payment and delivery. Please contact us to arrange the deposit as this option is not offered on the website.
DO YOU SEND ORDER CONFIRMATIONS VIA EMAIL?
The first email we send confirms your order, as well as your shipping address and other delivery information. Subsequent emails confirm that your order has been shipped, and provide tracking details.
HOW LONG DOES DELIVERY TAKE?
Delivery time frames are between 3 days and 14 weeks, as some of the products are shipped from Europe. The delivery times are listed in the specs for each product.
HOW WILL MY ORDER BE DELIVERED?
All orders require a signature on receipt. 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.
We unfortunately don't offer self-collection.
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. Sunbrella cut fabrics cannot be exchanged or returned unless 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 you believe an item is faulty or damaged, contact Customer Service within 7 days of receipt of the item. We will either ask you to send us images of the item or we will arrange for a courier to have the merchandise picked up from you.
