This unique system keeps the overall cost of your product and shipping down and enables us to ship your product direct from the manufacturing facilities. Office chairs will be boxed. Office Furniture items are shipped in a crate or on a pallet for supreme protection and fast maneuverability, assembly of products and removal of your order from the shipping crate may require a screwdriver or battery drill please note these are not included. Our shipping service is to ground level only and large pallets or crates may need to be hand unloaded if they will not fit through doorways – please make sure you have assistance to help you unload as this is not included in our standard shipping service. If you do not have assistance to help unload or access to a forklift please advise when placing the order and we can provide you with an on-site tailgate unloading delivery price, this is a special service which will enable the pallet to be safely unloaded by the driver and the goods unpacked on-site and placed on the ground level.

Special deliveries can take up to 15 working days longer than our standard fast delivery service.

If a product is delivered with damaged packaging then the customer must check the contents for missing / damaged items – the company will not replace whole products if only the packaging is damaged. The company will also not replace whole products when replaceable components are damaged, the components will be delivered and the customer will be required to fit the replacement components. Any labour or assembly costs required to change over damaged or missing components will not be covered by BuyDirectOnline. If BuyDirectOnline is notified of damage after products have been assembled BuyDirectOnline will not be liable for any assembly cost or replacement of damage products because we have not been notified within 48 hours and the correct procedure followed.

20.1 – All Office Furniture products are backed by a 12-month comprehensive warranty.

We also offer extended warranty options on all products. During the stated warranty period a maximum of 2 claims can be made that will be covered under the manufacturer’s warranty this applies to all products on the website.
21.1 – Buy Direct Online warrants all goods for a period of 12 months (unless the product has a longer advertised warranty or an extended warranty purchased at the time which will be noted on your invoice) under normal usage, to be free from defects in material and workmanship. The Buy Direct Online Warranty only covers goods while they are in Australia if you take a product out of Australia our warranty will not cover the product and is null & void. Our warranty do not cover heavy commercial use in 24-hour applications unless the product specifically states that it is covered for this. Our factory warranty is for 8 hours 5 days per week this equals 40 hour weeks, so in 12 months this is 2,080 hours of use. BuyDirectOnline liability under this warranty is to repair or replace (at its discretion) any part or product covered by this (or any implied) warranty free of charge. If the repair is something that can be fixed onsite Buy Direct Online may arrange for a technician to visit your location and perform the repair this is a case by case matter and only be carried out if approved by Buy Direct Online. Buy Direct Online does not cover any repair service costs that we haven’t approved or time take up by the customer to swap or replace any broken parts or components. Furniture items and chairs have maximum weight capacity’s which must be adhered to as we have ways of telling if items have been subjected to weights exceeding their limits which will cause the warranty to be void. BuyDirectOnline will often send a part which may have been determined as faulty this part will need to be swapped over by the user / customer. The warranty doesn’t cover general maintenance of products which includes making sure all fixing are periodicity checked and tighten, moving parts are kept lubricated and any unusual function are checked and reported. The warranty covers faults with the actual product if the issue is deemed to be related to an assembly fault i.e: parts are working loose or were assembled incorrectly and our team didn’t do the assembly our warranty will not cover any repair or replacement. When the decision is made that the product can’t be repaired and a replacement is required the product will need to be sent back to the manufacturer or supplier to process the replacement claim. In the case of the product being sent back as a warranty claim no refunds will be made until the goods are back in our preferred warehouse and the warranty claim assessment has been completed this can take 7-14 days. If a fault is found and the product is deemed as a warranty return by the assembly team a full refund will be arranged only on the products that are faulty. For example if 5 items are returned under warranty & we find in our assessment that only 2 items have a fault we will refund in full the 2 items and remainder 3 items will be subject to our standard product return policy & fees will apply. If we don’t have the product returned back to us we can’t process the warranty / replacement or refund claim.

Exposure to regular cleaning will cause the tops to swell and split, chips etc… this is not covered by any warranty. If using furniture in environments that require regular cleaning the correct moisture restraint MHR board will need to be requested and custom quoted.
22.10 – Any products that have been assembled incorrectly, bolts and screws not threaded correctly into furniture or over tighten so that the thread is stripped (screws also must be checked for length before fixing into any furniture items as our warranty does not cover fixings being screwed through and damaging an exposed surface).

22.12 – Warranty covers the replacement of faulty parts only, Fitting of replacement parts is not covered by the warranty and needs to be done by the consumer unless deemed not possible by the manufacturer. The replacement of a complete item will be decided by the manufacturer if the item is not able to be fixed or repaired. When the decision is made that the product can’t be repaired and a replacement is required the product will need to be sent back to the manufacturer or supplier to process the replacement claim. If we don’t have the product sent back we can’t process the replacement claim.

27.1 – BuyDirectOnline reserves the right to discontinue products, product ranges, colours, fabrics, vinyls at any time. Where we have prior notification we will update the product listing and/or website to reflect this. However, as we deal with many different manufacturers there are times when they make decisions to stop manufacturing a certain product, range, colour, fabric or vinyl and cease supply to us. These decisions can be fast and made swiftly without prior warning or notification. If a product, range, colour, fabric or vinyl has been discontinued or is unable for re-order, BuyDirectOnline is not obligated by any means to supply exactly what was previously ordered, but will do its best to provide options that are similar. BuyDirectOnline cannot and will not be able to supply a product, range, colour, fabric or vinyl if it has been discontinued by the manufacturer. At time of ordering (if asked whether a product, range, colour, fabric or vinyl will be discontinued or available for future purchase) we can only ask the manufacturer and pass on the information provided at the time. If the manufacturer then makes a decision to discontinue that particular product, product range, colour, fabric or vinyl then BuyDirectOnline cannot and will not be held liable. These manufacturing decisions are completely out of our control and we have no influence whatsoever on these decisions.
28.1 – Due to the increase of fraudulent orders and people impersonating other people, BuyDirectOnline is actively taking steps to try and eliminate fraud. The below is required by all customers.
– Customers will be asked to provide proof of valid ID with a photo (i.e. drivers licence) in order for the goods to be released.
– This applies to Click & Collect orders and on orders we arrange delivery.
– The name on the order must match the name on the ID.
– If someone else is collecting an order, we must be advised, and ID still needs to be produced. When delivering, the person who has placed the order needs to be the person who receives the delivery.
– The Privacy Act 1988 allows entities to collect identity information, including through ID scanning, if the handling of that information complies with the Australian Privacy Principles.
– The reason just sighting the ID is insufficient and a photocopy is needed is in the event the transaction is later flagged as fraud, we have evidence to report this to the police.
– To comply with the Australian Privacy Principles, the scanned copy of the ID is not electronic and will only be kept on hard paper, for up to 30 days.
– These scanned copies will be stored in a locked filing cabinet.
– After 30 days the scanned copy will be destroyed by a shredder.
