- Look acceptable; and
- Do all the things someone would normally expect them to do.
^For more information on consumer guarantees please visit the ACCC website.
If the product/(s) provided to You by Us do not meet these criteria then under the ACL You may be entitled to your preference of a repair, replacement or refund where the product/(s) has a major defect, and a repair or replacement where the product has a minor defect. In some cases, You may be entitled to compensation for damages and loss.
3.2 We do not provide refunds, exchanges, or store credit where you have simply changed your mind. Accordingly, please make sure you are certain that you want the product before making an order.
3.3 We understand that advertised photos of a product may look slightly different to the actual final product/(s) received due to inevitable consequences of lighting and angles, and/or due to natural variations in the timber and metal. We are happy to (if you so choose) provide you with an opportunity to view a physical sample of the product/(s) before placing an order so as to help you be absolutely certain that the product/(s) you ordered is the product/(s) you receive. If you would like to organise an appointment to see a sample before ordering, please contact us at email@example.com or on 0403 351 790.

3.5 In addition to this, by placing an order you warrant that you have read and understood clause 3.5.1 and 3.5.2 below.
3.5.1 Variations on Natural and Recycled Timbers:
Due to the nature of natural and recycled timbers our trestle tables and wood products come with some natural imperfections, which gives each piece a unique and individual character.
Furthermore, sometimes cracks/splits may occur in natural and recycled timbers. This is a natural occurrence of this type of timber and is no way a fault.
Natural and recycled timbers can expand and contract with extreme temperatures. The placement of your trestle table or wood products can affect its longevity.
Avoid placing your product/(s) in direct sunlight, or in moist, damp or overly dry environments. Arrange it so it is not adjacent to heating or air conditioning outlets.
The colours on the timber will vary from piece to piece. All pieces come in their own individual colour and finish and no two (2) pieces will ever be the same.
3.5.2 Variations on Metal:
Our metal and industrial pieces are locally hand forged, blacksmith made. This means that no two (2) pieces are ever the same, and therefore purposely do not have a ‘perfect or smooth’ finish.
Some metal has purposeful minor distressing in the colour/finish – this includes marks, discolourations, blemishes and purposeful depressions which are not considered imperfections.
