Freight Damage and Missing Parts
Upon receiving your order please be sure to inspect boxes carefully, alert your driver, do not sign and refuse delivery if you observe any obvious damage. If you find damaged items, please do not discard the boxes! In some cases we may also request for the products to be returned to us for inspection, so you will require the original packaging in order to send it back to us. Please take pictures of the damage and contact us immediately with details of the damages (within 24 hours ideally) so we can submit any claims on your behalf with our freight company. We know not everyone installs their product straight after receiving them, but we encourage you to take the product out of the packaging as soon as it arrives to take note of any damage. We won’t be able to claim any freight insurance after 48 hours from delivery, as the insurance claim window will be over. Generally there is no insurance on ‘Leave Safe’ deliveries after the products have been delivered.
If any parts are missing from your order, please contact us within 30 calendar days and we’ll help you get replacement parts. If it has been more than 30 calendar days since you received your order, there will be a charge for any requested parts.
Delivery times given are estimates based on normal production and shipping times, and may vary depending on the product.
- Estimated delivery times include working days after our receipt of your completed order and exclude weekends, holidays and factory closing days.
- On occasion, there may also be delays caused by back ordered merchandise, factories slowing or stopping production to take inventory, temporary factory overload, or other unforeseen problems.
- Estimated delivery times may also vary heavily during peak seasons such as holidays and end of year.
Please Note: We will do our best to notify you the estimated day of delivery, when the items are dispatched from our premises we will update your order status on our track order page, you will also receive an email and SMS of the updated order status.
For Leave Safe deliveries, please leave instructions in the checkout if you will not be home and would like it to be left in a specific place, ie. Around the side. The inner packaging of the blinds are in a sealed plastic cover and will be resistant to the weather. Please note that if you select this delivery method, as there is no signature we do not cover extremely rare instances of theft after delivery has been made, if this is of concern to you please choose ‘Signature Required’ delivery.

At times, products or colours are discontinued or placed on back order by raw material suppliers we work with. We make every effort to remove discontinued items as soon as we are made aware of them. Whenever we receive notice of back ordered items, we will notify you immediately and give you the option to change or cancel your order.
