Is a deposit required?

How do we know your requirements have been fully understood?
You will receive a ‘Confirmation of order’ from us within two working days. This document will summarize our understanding of your requirements including product type, quantity, colors and finishes, purchase price and the expected delivery date for your order.

Our confirmation provides an opportunity for you to check that we have fully understood your requirements. Once our confirmation has been accepted (by return email) we will commence manufacture.

How long does it take from order date to delivery?
From receipt of your purchase order to delivery is typically around 10-12 weeks. Delivery times vary depending on location and are calculated for each individual order.  Information about freight costs and delivery timing will be included in your formal quotation and re-confirmed on our Confirmation of Order once your purchase order has been received. At least one week prior to delivery our operations staff will be in contact with you.

How is my product delivered?
We offer two delivery options:

1) Delivery direct to your site – installation and disposal of crates by customer.
We will coordinate with our delivery people to have your order delivered to your location.  Our products come fully assembled in individual crates and delivery is typically to kerbside on a truck equipped with a back lift. From there it is the customer’s responsibility to receive the shipment, move it from kerbside, remove the furniture from the crates and dispose of the crates, position and commission the furniture. Prior to delivery our operations staff will provide advice and guidelines on how you can achieve a successful installation.

2) Our installer option (not available in some areas)
If you prefer the ‘no fuss option’ please enquire about our installation service. With this option we will ship your order direct to our installation contractor’s warehouse. Our installer will de-crate and check the goods and dispose of the crates. They will contact you to arrange a suitable time to deliver and install your goods.

Our contractors will deliver your order and place the furniture in position. The contractor will demonstrate the functionality of your YAKETY YAKs (requiring access to power). Exclusions: Our installers will not reticulate soft cabling or mount the customer’s equipment. 

If you would like the installer option included in your quotation, please note this on the enquiry form.
