GST

Damages and Claims

Subject to legislative requirements which cannot be altered by contract, and at our discretion, customers are entitled to receive a replacement or refund or equivalent amount of credit, if they receive goods that are over or short supplied, not ordered, damaged or faulty. Notification must be made to our Customer Service department on telephone number 0800 808 044 within 7 days of receipt of goods. For any short supply claims that have a proof of delivery, you may need to supply a statuary declaration signed by a justice of peace.

Failure to advise the Customer Service department within 7 days may result in your request being declined.

Once approved, the customer service team will issue a Returns Authority Number and provide you with details of how to return the goods. Goods should not be returned without receiving a Return Authority Number from our Customer Service department, as this will delay or may invalidate any claim.

Approved returned goods must be received by MTA complete and in the original packaging and condition in which they were delivered to you, for a credit to be issued.

If you change your mind about a product after delivery, we may at our discretion provide you with a refund or an equivalent amount in credit. In all instances we will charge a mandatory Return Freight and Handling Charge of 20% of the invoiced value. Furniture can not generally be returned for this reason. A return request must be made to our Customer Service department on telephone number 0800 808 044 within 7 days of receipt of goods.

All returned goods must be received complete and undamaged for the claim to be processed.

Design Changes

We reserve the right to vary the specifications or performance criteria of any item from time to time and to obtain items from different sources, at our absolute discretion. We may do that without prior notice provided we have reasonable grounds for believing that the alternative item offered is substantially similar to that previously offered or represents an improvement.
