2. Ordering

To make an order for the supply of Goods, you must either complete the Order Form, accept via email a quote that we have sent you or confirm the order with us via another method, such as our website, email or telephone. We will provide you with an acknowledgment of your order by email. This email does not necessarily constitute an Acceptance Email, as this may come in a later email – so read its terms carefully. The Order is accepted by us when we send you the Acceptance Email or when we accept any payment from you for the Goods (whichever is the earlier).

3. Contract

These terms supersede any earlier terms and conditions wherever published or applying between DIY Blinds and you in respect of the Goods. Once the Order is accepted by us in accordance with these terms, the Contract is formed.

4. Price and payments

The Price is inclusive of all taxes applicable unless otherwise specified in writing.

We will charge you a delivery fee in respect of all deliveries to locations within Australia other than orders for sample swatches. The delivery fee will be that shown on the “order confirmation” section of the DIY Blinds website at the time you place your order or otherwise notified in the Order, quote or Confirmation Email.

We generally charge a flat rate of $50 per Order to ship Australia wide (shutters excluded). Shutters are charged at a per square meter rate (VIC - $22, NSW/ACT - $22, QLD - $27.50, SA/TAS - $38.50, WA - $49.50), unless otherwise stated in the quote or Order.

If you have asked us to install the Goods, then we will charge a check measure and installation fee (“Installation Fee”). If we charge you the Installation Fee, we will waive the delivery fee.

Unless otherwise agreed, payment of the full Price is due at the time you place your Order and we will debit the Price from your credit or debit card when you supply us with your details during the Order process.

Any omission or error on our website, online pricing systems, quotation, order acknowledgement, Confirmation Email, Sales Literature, invoice or other documents issued by us will be corrected by us within a reasonable time, and we are not liable for any loss resulting from such error or omission, subject to the Australian Consumer Law.

5. Cancellation by you

As all of our products are custom made to your specifications, you are unable to cancel your order once it has been accepted by us. However, we want to do all that we can to ensure that you have a positive experience when purchasing from us. If you change your mind before your Goods have been dispatched, please contact us as soon as possible, as we may still be able to halt the production process. If this is the case, we may be able to refund to you what you have paid, less whatever costs have already been incurred in the processing and manufacturing of your Order, but this cannot be guaranteed.

6. Cancellation by us

We reserve the right to cancel the Contract or decline your order if:

  • we have insufficient stock of the fabric or product required to manufacture or supply the Goods;
  • any of the Goods were listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error or an error in the pricing information provided by us;
  • if you are not ordering from within Australia.

If we cancel your Order, we will notify you as soon as possible and will, at your election, either credit or refund to you any monies you have already paid us relating to your Order within 30 days of your Order.

Although we appreciate that you may be disappointed in such circumstances, we will not be able to offer you any other compensation for the disappointment you may suffer.

7. Stock shortages

If the Goods or the fabric you Order are unavailable, we will notify you as soon as possible and suggest a suitable replacement. Alternatively, we will, at your election, either credit or refund to you any monies you have already paid us relating to your Order within 30 days of your Order.

8. Product description and measurement

Our fabrics and materials are produced in batches and whilst all care is taken to maintain consistency from batch to batch, at times there can be small discrepancies. We make every effort to ensure that Goods match in every respect any sample or description we may have shown, given or sent to you, but minor or immaterial variation or change in colour or pattern between sample or description and the Goods may occur. If this happens, you are entitled to a remedy under the Australian Consumer Law, depending on whether the defect is major or minor. Please contact us to discuss your options.

9. Delivering your Goods

As all Orders placed with DIY Blinds are for custom manufactured products, any times quoted for delivery are estimates only and are subject to change. DIY Blinds will not be responsible or liable for any reasonable delays. However, we aim to complete your product and have it ready to ship to you within 10 working days (shutters and curtains excluded).

Depending on your location we use a panel of couriers to deliver from our factory to you. Once the courier has collected your order we will email you with the corresponding tracking number (where available) so you can track the progress of your delivery.

All Orders will have authority to leave unless we give instructions to the courier company otherwise. Therefore, if you know you won't be home and would like to make alternative arrangements please specify this in the special instructions section on the order page (ie. please instruct the driver to leave on the front porch). Please note that no responsibility will be taken for Orders left at your address and by requesting this option you are accepting full receipt of the order once it’s dropped off by the courier.

If the location is unattended at the time of delivery, DIY Blinds will not be responsible for any damage to or loss of the Goods howsoever arising.

The risk in the Goods will pass to you once they have been delivered to you. Delivery means when the Goods are delivered to the delivery location you have provided us. Title and ownership of the Goods will pass to you once you have paid the Price in full.

If you return the Goods, then ownership of, and risk in the Goods returned will pass to us on receipt of the Goods by us.

If more than one item is ordered, we may deliver the Goods in instalments and by different carriers.

10. Defective Goods

We ask that, within a period of 7 days following the delivery of Goods, you examine the Goods and notify us of any damage, defects or parts missing to the Order (eg. blinds, slats, brackets or any other portion of the Order). This will be evident once the packaging is open. We are not liable for marks, holes, scratches or defects on the fabric or product due to your misuse of the Goods or general wear and tear, including where the Goods have been subjected to your misuse, negligence, improper installation or improper cleaning.

If your Goods are defective on delivery, you are entitled to a remedy under the Australian Consumer Law, depending on whether the defect is major or minor. Please contact us to discuss your options.

The remedy may include providing you with a replacement, repairing the Goods within a reasonable time, providing you with a credit or refund or other compensation as required under the Australian Consumer Law.

If we provide a refund or replacement, we have the right to collect the Goods (at our cost) and you must give us reasonable access to your premises to collect those Goods.

11. Measurement

It is very important that the measurements you provide us are accurate. We cannot accept the return of Goods if the measurements you have provided to us are incorrect as we are unlikely to be able to resell them. If you would like guidance on how to take the required measurements accurately please contact us directly and we will be happy to help.

12. Warranty

In addition to any statutory rights or remedies you may have, we warrant that all Goods sold to you will be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of 5 years (10 years for PolyChoice Shutters & 20 years for PolyLux Shutters) from the delivery of Goods to you (warranty period). This warranty includes all materials, mechanisms (cord locks and tilt gears) and components (brackets, wands, caps, etc.), which make up the blind.

If a defect arises within the warranty period, you can return them to us provided you have first contacted us giving details of the defects and we have agreed that the Goods should be returned to us.

Provided that the Goods have:

  • not been modified;
  • not been subjected to misuse, negligence, improper installation and improper cleaning; or
  • not failed as a result of normal wear and tear -

and if the Goods are defective - in compliance with the Australian Consumer Law, we will promptly arrange, depending on the extent of the defect:

  • to repair the Goods and return the repaired Goods to you, free of charge; or
  • to deliver replacement Goods of similar quality and specification, free of charge; or
  • to refund of the Price of the defective Goods by crediting your debit or credit card or sending you a cheque within 30 days of receipt of the defective Goods.

To activate the warranty you must contact us at the details below to arrange the return of the Goods along with the original sales invoice and receipt. DIY Blinds will cover the cost of transport for the first 12 months of the warranty period only. After the first 12 months of the warranty period, you are responsible for returning the defective Goods. As our office is not equipped to receive large packages, we will instruct you on where the Goods are to be sent.

This warranty is not transferable.

Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
