Orders In Advance Of Date Required

advanceAs a rule, orders are not able to be placed weeks or months in advance of when they are required, and in particular in advance of check measures. 

For example someone ordered in December for blinds not needed until late May and other orders were placed in March and not check measured until July. The Australian Dollar fluctuations during this time has resulted in all of our suppliers putting their prices up on all fabrics and components.  Prices cannot be held by placing an advance order, unless this is agreed in writing for specific projects prior to order being placed.

If you do order in advance please take note that your order may have to be cancelled and re-submitted, particularly if measurements have changed and price changes have occurred in the interim. You will be charged as per pricing effective date (as per our newsletter notifications).   

For any special dispensation to this general rule, please contact Sharyn Moran with your request. If you have any questions please ask me.  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
