  1. Timeframes quoted are approximates only – When products are out of stock or required to be specifically ordered from a local, interstate or overseas supplier, Minkz will provide an estimated time and date of arrival. Any such dates provided are estimates only and may be subject to delays beyond the control of Minkz.

Please contact the branch of purchase one (1) week in advance to pay the balance and arrange delivery when it is required. Titles of the furniture remains with Minkz until all outstanding payments are received.
  1. Leather is a natural product and will reflect characteristics such as scarring, stretching and creasing. In addition, leather dye lots may vary to the swatch samples in our showrooms. These variations are not classified as faults; they are a natural feature of leather.

Should an additional upholstered furniture item be purchased at a later date, in the same leather or fabric colour, there may be dye lot variations to the original leather or fabric upholstery appearance.

  1. Timber and veneer products will reflect natural characteristics such as colour variations, marks and the grains of natural wood.  These characteristics will vary with each piece of furniture and are not faults or imperfections in the product. The finish of furniture that is made from rustic or recycled timber bears no resemblance to the smooth, planed, sanded and highly polished finish of contemporary or more formal furniture pieces. Cracks and holes in the timber can be filled with putty and polished smooth and are normal in the manufacture of timber pieces and are not a fault. Stain colours may vary from the samples as each piece of timber absorbs the stain differently.
  1. Pickup or Delivery Service.  Products not physically at the showroom can be collected from the Osborne Park Warehouse or a delivery can be arranged (fees apply).  If a purchaser wishes to collect their products they must supply their own protective wraps, blankets and ropes to tie down products as these are not provided by Minkz. Suitable strong and able people need to attend collections to load the products. Warehouse requires one week’s’ notice prior to collection. Collection times are Monday to Friday, 9.30am-3.00pm and must be confirmed to ensure staff are available to handover products. Saturday morning pickups between 9am-12pm can be arranged if approval is provided by management prior to the day of collection.
  1. Check measurements of the product/space/access. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to ensure that the furniture/product that they are purchasing is fit for the purpose it is purchased for. Purchasers must take measurements of their doorways, hallways, ceilings, stairwells, room dimensions and lifts to ensure the products will fit in the desired area, before making the decision to purchase.  
  1. Delivery – ensure you are at home during the delivery window. For all Perth Metro deliveries Minkz will provide the purchaser with a time window for delivery prior to delivery. Other freight companies we use either provide a delivery window, or will just attempt to deliver to the home on their delivery run, and then leave a card with options for re-delivery or pickup from the depot. In the event that the delivery truck arrives at the delivery address and there is no one available to accept the products, they will be returned to the warehouse and the customer will be required to wait for the next available delivery date. In such instances a re-delivery charge may be payable prior to the redelivery.
  1. All products must be thoroughly inspected at the time of collection by the purchaser or by their agent/freight company or at the time of delivery by Minkz personnel, as liability for the products shall pass to the purchaser on collection or, if Minkz are delivering, delivery of the products. No responsibility will be taken by Minkz once the ownership has been transferred to the purchaser.  If an item is reported as damaged and/or requires repair or replacement after the goods have been accepted, regardless of the reason, any action taken will be at the sole discretion of Minkz.  If any action is taken, the additional fees may be charged.
  1. Generally products are covered by a manufacturer’s warranty for 12 months after purchase (check individual product info for more details) and are inspected prior to dispatch but due to Minkz closing, no warranties are provided from the announcements 20/01/16. If an onsite inspection is required, a minimum $110 call out fee will be payable prior to inspection. If the product is found to have a manufacturer’s fault, the item will be repaired or replaced (the choice of which will be at Management’s discretion). Delivery fees will be quoted and are payable for any item requiring collection or delivery.
  1. It is the purchasers’ responsibility to read the terms and condition before entering into a purchasing agreement and not reading them is not a viable excuse for non compliance.
  1. Minkz advises all clients to affix to the wall all bookcases, buffets, chest of drawers or any other unit which may be pulled over or fall.  These units may become unstable when  filled or when the drawers/doors are opened.  The weight of these units could cause damage or injury to a person or property.  All products purchased from Minkz are used at the sole responsibility of the purchaser and Minkz will not be held liable for any damage or injury caused by any product they have supplied.

Deliveries for non-bulky and non-fragile goods are to your front door only. For bulky or fragile goods we believe your purchase deserves a special degree of handling and care. To ensure this we use professional furniture removalists who call to confirm a time for delivery and take extra care throughout the entire process. Your item/s will be hand unloaded and carefully placed in your home or office by two professionals. This service does not include unpacking or rubbish removal.
