DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF GOODS AND/OR SERVICES
The Bedroom Shop Online is a business in the retail industry that markets furniture, linen and homeware.
HOW WE WORK
Due to the extensive range of style and finish options in our furniture range and in order for us to offer the widest possible range of product to our clients please note we do not carry stock of all the products on our website. Delivery lead times will be subject to whether stock is available immediately (we do carry stock of popular/quickship items but these quantities vary from time to time depending on demand). Your order enquiry process will be as follows:
- Select product/products and add to cart
- Follow check out process (Note – it is not necessary to open an account before checking out)
- Your enquiry will be sent to our sales staff who will respond with confirmation of stock availability or manufacturing lead times as well as confirmation of delivery costs and time estimates.
- Should you wish to go ahead with your order we will then send an invoice for payment and a secure link for credit card payment if requested.
Prices on the website may vary from time to time and may be incorrectly displayed due to typing errors and are therefore subject to change at any time and without prior notification. From time to time technical errors/typo’s may occur and while we do, within reason endeavour to honour prices advertised The Bedroom Shop Online reserves the right to amend pricing as needed where a technical/human error has occurred.
All prices quoted on the website are inclusive of VAT (value added tax).
Percentage or value discount vouchers are valid on a one voucher per invoice basis and are subject to minimum order amounts specified. Voucher discounts are not valid on already discounted/sale items.
The Bedroom Shop Online is committed to respecting the privacy of your personal information. Any personal information pertaining to the customer will not be shared with any 3rd parties. For the purpose of this clause, “personal information” shall be defined as detailed in the Promotion of Access to Information Act 2 of 2000 (PAIA). The PAIA may be downloaded from:
The provision of goods and services by The Bedroom Shop Online is subject to availability. While we do try and keep the site updated with current and available products only, due to the fact that many bed linen and home ware products are imported, these products are only available while stocks last. While our suppliers do their best to keep us updated there may be periods from time to time where we are unaware that stock levels are depleted and products will still appear on the site. Also as shortages of imported materials and timbers used in the manufacture of locally produced products can cause production delays, we may remove and re-introduce products from time to time.
Please note that where general terms such as “BEDS” or “FURNITURE” are used, the sale discount may only apply to selected products and The Bedroom Shop Online reserves the right to select these products.
Corporate discounts offered in contracts with eg Randgo Mall are not applicable to already discounted items.
Subject to availability and receipt of payment, requests will be processed within 2-3 days and manufacturing and delivery lead times confirmed by way of e-mail.
We offer free delivery in hub areas countrywide on bed/mattress orders over the value of R3500.00. Orders under R3500.00 are subject to a R350.00 delivery fee. Delivery costs to outlying areas, countywide, are dependent on access and distance from our supporting depots and will be subject to a quotation. We offer free delivery on beds and mattresses between Plettenberg Bay and Sedgefield on specified days of the week.
Our range of bedroom furniture is manufactured and shipped from the Garden Route with Timefreight Couriers. All furniture deliveries are subject to a delivery charge of R300 to main hub areas and R500 to outlying areas. We offer free delivery of furniture between Plettenberg Bay and Sedgefield on specified days of the week.
We offer free delivery on countrywide linen and homeware orders over the value of R1200.00. Orders below R1200.00 are subject to a R120.00 shipping fee.
Please note deliveries to areas outside of the Garden Route are “delivery only” and do not include unwrapping and installation. As per our RETURNS AND REFUNDS POLICY below, goods must be unwrapped and inspected soonest after delivery and The Bedroom Shop Online notified immediately of any damage. In these cases all wrapping and packaging must be retained so that The Bedroom Shop Online can arrange delivery of replacements and the safe return of the damaged goods to their warehouse. It is required that faulty/damaged goods be returned in their original or suitable packaging. Note that delivery dates quoted are estimates and while every effort will be made to ensure estimated dates are honoured, circumstances beyond the control of The Bedroom Shop Online may cause delivery dates to be changed. The same applies to estimated timeframes on arranged delivery days as transporters can be delayed by unforeseen traffic, accidents and roadworks.
