Your total shipping charge for all products (with the exception of furniture) is calculated as the greater between total actual item weight or volumetric weight for all the products within your order.

All rates are calculated using a door to door courier economy service.

For any orders in excess of 500kg (greater of either actual or volumetric weight), please contact us for a current (live) shipping quote. If you proceed to checkout, you will still be liable to pay the shipping fee before your order will be shipped.

Please note that shipping on all furniture items will vary and is calculated based on area, size of item(s) and accessibility.

Certain larger furniture items will require a live shipping quote from OTD before proceeding to checkout as these does not fall within our standard courier pricing.

These items will state this in the product description.

If you proceed to checkout and pay for your order that still requires a shipping quote, you will be liable to settle the additional shipping fee quoted by OTD before your order will be shipped.

OTD offers a standard furniture delivery service to the ground floor of the delivery address property only and we do not provide hoisting or special moving delivery options (i.e. transporting via elevator or carrying up stairs) of any furniture whatsoever.

We use a third party standard delivery company who does not offer these type of services.

If you live above ground floor and require furniture items to be delivered to your floor, it is your own responsibility to make your own additional arrangements and we will only deliver furniture to the ground floor of the delivery address you provided.  Once we have delivered your order to the ground floor, the responsibility of that item becomes that of the customer and we will not be liable for damages caused after delivery by OTD.

For international shipping, please contact us on [email protected] for a live shipping quote.  Please ignore the “Free” shipping rate listed at checkout.  If you proceed to checkout without contacting us for a shipping quote first, you will still be liable to pay the fee.

Information and Disclaimer on Our Wood Products

Wood is a natural product that responds to temperature and humidity variations by expanding and contracting. Sometimes these changes may be noticeable in the physical appearance of the product.

Although every care is taken to ensure our products are able to handle temperature and humidity changes, the conditions of your home can affect the wooden products you buy from us. Your items can experience small movements and cracks as it adjusts – this is not a fault, but a natural occurrence within the fibers of a natural product.

Like all natural materials, wood has inherent disparities in colour and grain pattern because of variations caused by nature, over which the supplier has no control. 

We advise you to keep the product in consistent, stable conditions to minimise the effects of temperature and moisture change in the atmosphere. For example, avoiding placing the product close to a heat source such as a radiator or oven will go a long way to ensuring the longevity of the product

As wood is a natural material, every piece of furniture will appear slightly different in finish either in colour or pattern of wood. OTD Furniture  cannot warranty color, grain, or texture of wood.

Information and Disclaimer on Our Colour and Fabric Finishes

Actual colours may vary due to products being made to order. It’s important to note that swatches may look different on a real product than what you see on your computer monitor. This is due to the fact that every computer monitor has a different capability to display colours and that everyone sees these colours differently.

We try to edit our photos to show the products as life-like as possible, but please understand the actual colour may vary slightly from your monitor.

Product Availability

Whilst OTD will always try it’s utmost best to only list products that are available and in stock, please note that we sell products supplied to us by local suppliers and will not be held liable if a product becomes unavailable

since the product has been listed.

In the event that a customer purchases a product(s) in the online store and OTD gets notified by the supplier(s) that a product has been discontinued or unavailable for the unforeseeable future, OTD has the right to remove that product from the online store, not fulfill the order and refund the client for any monies spent.
