General terms and conditions of courier deliveries:

Our standard agreement with our courier delivered services does not include a call to arrange a suitable delivery time. You will be able to track your delivery online, but the dates shown on the carriers’ websites are only estimates and we cannot take any liability for late deliveries.

Courier delivered services will be all NSW, Queensland, ACT, SA & WA deliveries and some Victorian deliveries.

Rarely, products may be damaged during freight or arrive with faults. If your product is damaged on arrival, please get in contact with us within 24-48 hours to let us know. We will contact you to arrange an appropriate solution, including redelivery or repair at no further cost to you.

You may be asked to provide us with further information or send us images of the damage for further assessment prior to returning the item to us. We recommend speaking to one of our specialist staff and provide us with any requested images or information, as you will be responsible for all shipping costs to and from us if the product is found not to be damaged or defective. Please see our returns page for further information with regard to our 30 day no questions asked returns and overall returns policy.

We cannot be responsible for any damage that is not reported within 48 hours of receiving the sofa and is not covered by the warranty. For further warranty information, please see the warranty information available on our website.

Returns - terms and conditions:

ALL ITEMS MUST BE RETURNED IN ORIGINAL PACKAGING.

Secret Sofa is dedicated to providing quality merchandise that is of a high standard to all of our customers.

It is your responsibility to measure your room, doors and hallways correctly prior to purchase to ensure the items ordered fit in your front door, room and hallway.

If the item does not fit and the courier is asked to return it, they may not be able to take it that day and it is your responsibility to safeguard and have the item ready for return on a day the courier can collect and return to us for credit.

The credit terms are outlined below. Please read these as costs apply for returns.

If damage to the product is sustained between you receiving and then returning the package, we may deduct an amount from your refund to cover any damages and repairs that are required.

Our goal is to have 100% of our customers happy. Therefore, we offer a 30 day, no questions asked, returns option. If, within 30 days, you decide that you’re not completely satisfied with your order, we will happily arrange collection of your order – minus freight charges – and refund your account. Importantly, the goods must be returned in the original packaging and in as-new condition.

We cannot accept returns of any products sold on CLEARANCE.

  • Freight cost - the freight will cost the same as the shipping price you originally paid.
  • Your sofa must be returned in the original packaging. Simply place the sofa back into the bag and box it comes in.

NSW, Queensland, ACT, SA & WA shipping terms and conditions:

Order processing:

  • Confirmation is required before dispatching your order.
  • For stocked items, we will aim to get your confirmation within 48 hours (Monday to Friday) of receiving your order. We will then dispatch the product accordingly.
  • For pre-order and custom made items, we will provide updates including an estimated date the product will arrive at our warehouse.
  • We cannot provide a guarantee of a specific delivery date for your sofa as couriers are independent of Secret Sofa and can be very large, or often small operators, depending on where you live.
  • We do our best to find the best couriers possible as their service is important to both our customer and to us, but we can not be held liable for late deliveries or the operational behaviour of independent couriers.

Delivery process:

  • The courier will deliver the sofa to your door.
  • The courier may not necessarily contact you on the day of delivery, but we will provide you with a tracking number.
  • This service requires you to be at home on the day of delivery so you can sign off and unpack and assemble the sofa yourself.
  • Please note that apartment dwellers may need to seek body corporate approval before receiving a delivery. This includes approval for booking a lift etc. The courier may find it difficult to work inside a time window of 4 hours or less, so please make sure you have had the appropriate discussions with your body corporate.
  • You will receive a tracking number on dispatch. The tracking number will provide you with an ETA on the delivery of your sofa, but please note this is only an estimate that is subject to change based on the courier’s discretion. Couriers can often lose valuable time on a daily basis due to unavoidable traffic etc. so it is difficult for them to provide accurate updates well in advance.
  • We do our best to find reliable couriers with good customer service, but we are not responsible for the daily actions or performance of any courier or courier company (delays, customer service etc.).
  • On average, deliveries will reach their destination within 5 business days of dispatch, however this can vary depending on a range of outside factors - time of year, road closures, weather issues etc.

Bulky items:

  • Shipping costs on the Luxe, London, Marcus, Benson and Camilla are higher than our regular delivery costs, as they are bigger and bulkier boxes that require specialist equipment to get to your door.
  • The courier will provide the same base service as the standard delivery. These bulky items are very well packed and the cartons will not necessarily fit through your front door.
  • In most cases, the best way to move bulky items inside your house is to remove the carton and carefully move them through the door in just the protective fabric bag they are wrapped in.
  • It is vital you have your own assistance available on the day and are prepared to take items at your front door, unpack and take inside without any assistance from the courier.
  • It is important you have done your measurements correctly, prior to purchase as couriers cannot take returns that don’t fit on the same day and this puts you in a position where you need to secure your items until the courier can return to pick it up.
  • Prior to delivery we will send you photos of your item so we can ensure that it leaves our warehouse in premium condition. Please check your item once you have received it for any damage, prior to moving it inside. If you do not do this, we are unable to arrange relevant repairs of damage that may occur during transit. If you find any abnormal markings or damage, please email us your photos the same day.

These terms and conditions form part of the Agreement between the Client and ourselves. Your undertaking of a booking or Agreement indicates your understanding, agreement to and acceptance of the Shipping Terms and Conditions.
