Product Images and Descriptions

Website product images are indicative only and actual colours and finishes may vary slightly from the images shown. This variance can be due to factors such as different computer monitor screen settings and the lighting / angles used when photographing the product/s.

Order Cancellations

We try to get orders processed, picked, packed and dispatched as soon as possible, so it is not always possible to cancel an order once it has been processed. 

If you need to cancel an order please contact us immediately and we will do our best to cancel it for you. If the order has been sent to the warehouse and is being prepared for dispatch a $25 admin fee may apply to cover our costs in stopping this order from being dispatched. 

Once a courier has been booked & the item has been dispatched we are unfortunately unable to stop the delivery. Please see our change of mind policy below. 

Warranty Claims / Faulty Items 

In the unlikely event an item is faulty or broken on arrival, or a product you have purchased from us develops a fault during the warranty period, please see our policy below. 

Item Broken or Faulty on Arrival

Broken or faulty items must be reported within 14 days of receiving your order.

When you receive your item please:

  • Check items upon delivery to ensure they are intact & all parts are included. 
  • Do not accept the delivery if the box has been damaged. 
  • Take photos of any damaged items, including the outer packaging 
  • Contact us with 14 days of receiving your item to report the fault

Warranty Claims

If an item you purchase develops a fault during the warranty period you may either contact us and we will liaise with the supplier to organise to a warranty claim, or you may contact the supplier directly to submit a warranty claim. 

The warranty period for the products we sell varies between the brands we sell, and the type of product. Please check the product page on our website or contact our customer support team if you are unsure. 

Change of Mind Returns

As a general rule we do not accept change of mind returns due to the size of the products we sell and expense incurred in packing, storing and delivering items, which is often heavily subsidised. 

Please contact our team if you have any questions before ordering so we can help make sure you are selecting the right products for your needs. 

We can under certain circumstances accept change of mind returns, and these will be considered on a case-by-case basis. 

In order for a change of mind return to be considered please contact us within 7 days of receiving the item and provide your proof of purchase (e.g. order confirmation email) and reason for return. It is very important that the items you which to return are:

  • Unused and in the same condition that you received them in; and
  • In their original packaging.

If more than 14 days have passed since you received your item, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund.

Change of Mind Returns - Delivery & Restocking Fees

For all change of mind returns you will be responsible for any delivery costs incurred in returning the item back to us / our supplier. 

A restocking fee of 15% will usually apply to change of mind returns

Please also note if you received discounted or free delivery when you placed your order, we will deduct the difference between the amount you paid for delivery and our actual delivery cost from the refund amount.

Change of Mind Returns - Return Process

To return your product, please contact our customer service team by phone or email first.   

Please do not return products without contacting us first as we need to check which warehouse the items should be returned to & if your order is eligible for return.

Items returned without a returns authorisation number will not be accepted. 

With some items we are able to supply a 'return post' shipping label. The cost of the return delivery will then be deducted from the final refund.  If this is not available for your order we will let you know so you can organise to deliver the items back to us / our supplier. 

We recommend always using an insured delivery service if you are organising your own delivery as we are not responsible for goods which are lost or damaged in transit to us. 


Unfortunately we do not offer exchanges.
