Unless otherwise stated, delivery and/or assembly services are chargeable per trip for all purchases (showroom, commercial and online).

Accordingly, we shall not be responsible and shall not in any way be liable for not being able to deliver a Product within the specified timeframe that you had requested resulting from any unforeseen shipment or delivery delays from our manufacturers, or from our outsourced delivery partners.

There are 2 types of delivery methods, namely the white glove delivery and courier dispatch services.

White Glove Delivery - A standard one-way white glove delivery fee of S$80 will be applied for new purchases below S$1000. For single order purchases above S$1000, the one-time delivery fee is wavied. These are usually for items that are big and bulky and requires more care and attention from the delivery man. For promotional or sales items, as well as other instances, the standard delivery fee of S$80 applies, and may not be waived. Delivery schedule will be arranged with you in advance and will generally be on a weekday from 10.30am to 6pm, in a specified block of 3 hours. Deliveries may be delayed due to traffic conditions or any unforeseen circumstances and we seek your kind understanding in this matter.

Deliveries during peak hours (weekdays after 6pm and Saturdays after 12noon) may be available at an optional top-up of additional S$50 (non-waivable). Please check with us if you are keen at this option. There are strictly no deliveries on all Sundays & Public Holidays, unless otherwise stipulated.

Non Lift-Landing - Standard white glove delivery rate applied is based on the lift landing level for apartments, HDBs or condominiums, or to the ground level for landed properties. In the event that the items are required to be carried to a higher level not accessible by lift (e.g. penthouse or higher levels of landed properties), an additional charge of S$10 per item per level will be levied and paid directly to the deliveryman in cash. 

Courier Dispatch Services - The other delivery method, which is courier dispatch services, is automatically applied for items that does not require white glove delivery, and typically covers smaller, less bulky & flat packed items that can be handled by a courier man. This delivery method is charged at a lower flat rate of S$6.90 or S$30, depending on the item size, to pass on the savings from a standard white glove delivery service back to you. For courier dispatch services, we will only be responsible to arrange a one-time delivery for you, according to a specified time block by the selected courier services. Please check with the relevant courier service directly if you require any further information by using the tracking number provided in the order email. We utilize only reliable courier dispatch companies. In the unforeseen event that they face delays in delivering your parcels, we seek your kind understanding to be patient with them. If you require a time-sensitive delivery, we advise you to inform us upfront during our call for the arrangement of delivery to enquire how to opt for a white-glove delivery by topping up with a fee. To adhere to courier dispatch services requirements, items are required to be flat-packed for parcel safety. If you require items to be pre-assembled upon delivery, we advise you to inform us upfront during our call for the arrangement of delivery to enquire how to opt for a white-glove delivery instead by topping up with a fee.
