TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE/CONTRACT OF SALE FOR CUSTOM MADE BLINDS, AWNINGS, SCREENS, AND SHUTTERS.

This can be received as cash (Australian dollars only), direct deposit into our nominated bank account, Visa, Mastercard (no surcharge applied), Amercian Express (3% surcharge applies to cover merchant costs) or cheque. (cheque only exceptable on deposit, not on final payment). We make a custom made product. It cannot be reused if you change your mind as it has been made to the exact measurements of your requirements. The majority of this custom made product will be made off site from your premises. That is, it will be made in our factory, or our suppliers factory. Your quote has been provided to you in writing. Please check it carefully before you deposit. Any special arrangements, product performance claims or agreements should be made in writing. At times our customers have received more than one quote and may have had conflicting information from different company consultants. Any product performance claims or special arrangements we have made we will happily put in writing. If unsure, ask before you deposit.
CANCELLATION OF ORDERS
Our products are custom made and once the product has been ordered with a deposit and production costs have been incurred the order cannot be cancelled. Once you have deposited with our company we will confirm the order in writing via Australia Post. We will include our warranty terms and payment terms with the order. We will include care instructions and our procedure for installation. We will give you an estimated date of installation in writing with that paperwork.
At times unforeseen circumstances occur. Please contact the office immediately if you need to cancel for unforeseen circumstances. If we can cease production and not lose cost we will endeavor to do so. If we cannot stop production (for example the manufacturing process has started) then you will still be liable for the goods. We have at times refunded part deposits if you tell us in time.
CHANGE OF MIND
Premier Shades provide our goods to industry standard and install to industry standard. If you are unsure of how a product may look or be installed it is best if you visit our showroom at 18/482 Pacific Highway, Wyoming. We have many of the products we sell on display and operational. We cannot be held responsible if your expectations for the product are not the industry standard. Please be clear of your expectations before you deposit. Our quotes are in writing, we confirm your order in writing and we have our goods on display to show you how they will look.
Premier Shades gives a solid 2 year warranty on all products. These can be issues from wrong measuring to faulty fabrics and mechanisms, to manufacturing, installation or communication issues. Unfortunately this is the nature of a measurement sensitive custom made product and human error.
If there are any special instructions you have discussed with the sales representative or check measure tradesmen that are not on the order, PLEASE NOTIFY THE OFFICE IMMEDIATELY. There is no need to call your sales consultant if something is not quite right. Our office team are trained to fix issues, are friendly, co-operative and will be able to help you.
This warranty includes parts and labour to remove and refit the product. It includes product from goods manufactured within our factory as well as goods manufactured outside our factory but sold by our company.
If there are any problems with your purchase please inform us as soon as possible. We will make it a priority to fix any issues within 7 days (most of the time it is within 3 days). If a product needs to be remade and we cannot do so within 7 days, we will give you an estimate time to fix the issue. Whilst some things are out of our control, our priority is to get the issue fixed within the quickest time frame and the least amount of disruption to you. We will endeavour to keep you informed at all times.
If the goods were sold and installed by Premier Shades we will come to the premises of where the goods have been installed initially and service or replace them onsite. If they need to be removed to be fixed, we will endeavour to do so with the least amount of disruption to the client. We will inform the client of time frames and expectations at the time.
Premier Shades does not accept verbal or physical abuse from clients to our staff or contractors during the warranty process and this will void the company warranty under these circumstances.
- The warranty includes fault of fabric and mechanisms due to normal use in and for the purpose intended of the product.
- Premier Shades reserves the right to fix or replace any blinds or awnings under warranty before offering a refund
- The warranty is for the goods named on the invoice only.
- Please be clear to check your order that is posted to you and call the office immediately if there are any discrepancies or you are unclear of what you have ordered.
Many of our suppliers offer extended warranties on their products. This warranty covers the product only, not Premier Shade's time for servicing or fitting. If a manufacturer of fabric, materials or componentry has stated a longer warranty than Premier Shade's standard 2 years we will source the goods under their warranty for the client. However, Premier Shades' time must be charged to cover any labour costs, transportation costs and any manufacturing costs. This may include but is not limited to
installation. When a product is under extended warranty we ask that we send a service person out when we are in the area. This may take up to 7 days. There will be no call out fee involved for extended warranty products. However you must be clear at the time of reporting the warranty that your product is under extended warranty. Once it is established it is a warranty claim, Premier Shades will be upfront with any costs before proceeding. A deposit before starting work will be required. That is for example, if a fabric manufacturer has stated a 5 year warranty for their fabric. Premier Shades will source the fabric under warranty for the client if it is past Premier Shades standard 2 years warranty. However, Premier Shades will need to charge the client for any removal of existing awning and then re-installation. They may also need to pass on the cost to get the product re-made using the new fabric. Premier Shades will be clear of any costs before proceeding. Please direct all warranty claims via our office and we will organise things for you.
If the goods were picked up from Premier Shades' premises and installed by the client, the client is required to return them to the showroom/factory of Premier Shades to have them serviced.
OUT OF WARRANTY REPAIRS
If the goods are out of warranty (after 2 years), a service call fee is applicable for a representative of Premier Shades to visit the premises. This is a minimum of $80. The goods will be serviced onsite if possible. The service call fee is payable, regardless of the time it has taken to fix the issue or if the issue can be fixed at all. The service call fee is to cover the representative's time away from quoting and installation. If the goods need to be removed to be fixed, we will endeavour to do so with the least amount of disruption to the client. If there will be any other cost involved, we will inform the client and get their approval before we proceed. We will inform the client of time frames and expectations at the time.
Alternatively Premier Shades keeps all major parts to repair blinds. If you would like to repair a blind yourself please call into our factory and we will sell you the parts required.

If an issue cannot be seen from a distance of 1.5m or greater in non-critical light we may deem it not defective.
The final payment is due on the day of installation. The installer will not always have credit card facilities on him.
