Yes, but only to the extent permitted by applicable law. See the Liability section below for more detail. In summary, we limit our liability to the replacement or repair of goods, supply of equivalent goods (or supply of services again), or payment of the cost of replacement or repair or supplying of equivalent goods (or supply of services again), and our maximum aggregate liability shall not exceed the amount paid by you for the products in question.

- you've provided incorrect delivery details or need to change delivery details (see the Delivery section below); or

We endeavour to ensure that all the products on our website are accurately described, and we rely on information provided to us by our suppliers. Unfortunately, on some occasions it is possible that our website will contain errors and we reserve the right to correct any errors or inaccuracies at any time, including after you have placed an order. In some cases the products we offer for sale are handmade or made from natural or organic materials, and there may be small variations between the product image(s) and the product you receive. This will always be stated on the individual product listing. We endeavour to ensure that all colours are displayed accurately, but you should be aware that colours may appear slightly differently on different displays and screens. The shade of colour from screen to screen is not a fault or error. This will be classified as a change of mind and returning items based on change of mind will be at the expense of the customer.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, we do not warrant that the product descriptions, colours, information or other content available or offered on our website are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free, nor do we make any warranty about the standard or quality of any of the products offered via our website.
On rare occasions our suppliers find themselves unable to deliver products to us, or the products delivered are not of sufficient quality or workmanship. We reserve the right to withdraw any products from our website at any time and/or remove or edit any materials or content on our website. Whilst we will make our best efforts to process all orders, there may be exceptional circumstances which mean that we may need to refuse to process an order after we have sent you an order confirmation, which we reserve the right to do at any time, at our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any other third party by reason of our withdrawing any product from our website, whether it has been sold or not, removing or editing any materials or contents on our website, or for refusing to process or accept an order after we have sent you the order confirmation.
Our website changes regularly
We aim to update our website regularly, and may change content at any time. If the need arises, we may suspend access to our website, or close it indefinitely. We will use reasonable endeavours to ensure our website contains accurate information and content, however, we reserve the right to update our website as soon as an inaccuracy or error is brought to our attention.
After you have placed your order and we have processed your payment we will provide you with an order confirmation by email. This email does not guarantee that the product(s) you have ordered is/are available. It represents confirmation that we have received your order. Your order represents an offer to purchase, which we accept when we dispatch your product(s) and send you an email confirming that your product(s) has/have been dispatched. Once this email has been sent and the goods have been handed over to the designated carrier, the contract between you and us is complete. The sale contract is therefore concluded in New South Wales, Australia.
If delivery of an order will result in unacceptably high freight charges to Assembl, we reserve the right to contact you to request further shipping fees or to cancel an order prior to dispatch. If we cancel your order in these circumstances we will issue a full refund to you.
In the unlikely event that a product is unavailable, we reserve the right to cancel your order prior to dispatch. We will contact you by email as soon as possible to let you know. You may choose to have a store credit to your account or a refund to the value of the unavailable product. We reserve the right not to accept your order in the event that we are unable to obtain authorisation for payment, where we suspect fraudulent activity, or where you do not meet the eligibility criteria set out, or otherwise contemplated, within these Terms and Conditions or our website. We reserve the right to refuse to process or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion.
Prices, payment and GST
All prices displayed on our website are in Australian dollars and include GST. All payments are processed in Australian dollars. We accept payment by various methods including by Credit Card, PayPal and a range of other payment options as displayed on the website and during the checkout process.
The retail price for each product is provided to us by our supplier and is shown alongside the sale price for your reference. Prices are subject to change effective immediately upon posting to our website or other form of notification.
In some cases our products may be sourced from international markets and may not be available for sale elsewhere in Australia. In that case our supplier provides us with a retail price in Australian dollars based upon a conversion of the price in the market from which the products were sourced. In cases where our products have not previously been sold in any retail market, we work with our supplier to set a retail price based upon the price of products we deem to be competitive products in the Australian retail market.
We use industry standard encryption to keep your personal information secure throughout the payment process. We do not permanently store your credit card or bank information. We will not be liable for any damages or losses (whether direct or indirect) caused if a member's card is used fraudulently.
In an effort to prevent fraudulent use of credit cards or other payment options, we will undertake reasonable efforts to validate the legitimacy of the order and payment method. This process may include requesting proof of identity and a formal check on. However, we do not guarantee that we can prevent the fraudulent use of such information by unauthorised third parties. In instances of high value orders being placed and/or where we suspect your card may be at risk of fraudulent use, we will follow internal company procedures to confirm the order is bona fide. Orders undertaking a formal check will be placed on hold until we have received confirmation this transaction is legitimate. Where we cannot reasonably rule out fraudulent card use prior to processing your order, we may decide to cancel the order (notifying you via email).
Delivery Fees: Delivery fees and times vary for different products and are calculated based on the size and weight of your order and its destination. The delivery price for each order will be displayed during the checkout process, prior to payment and order confirmation and included in the total price of your order. Changes made to delivery address or delivery time after placing an order may incur additional charges, which we reserve the right to request to add to your original delivery charge. Delivery estimates calculated at checkout are based on delivery to the front door of a ground floor. Approval for requests to have items delivered past this point must be requested prior to an order being placed. This is a request and cannot be guaranteed. The request is based on courier availability and payment of this service.
Delivery time: Each product listing includes the estimated dispatch time frame for that product. Typically, items listed on the website will be dispatched from our warehouse within 24 to 72 business hours. In some cases the estimated dispatch time frame will be longer, for example where items are made to order. From time to time the delivery of specific items will exceed our usual stated delivery window for reasons outside our control. We work hard to process all orders as quickly as possible and we will send you an email to let you know when your item has been dispatched by us or if we anticipate delays.
Risk in the products passes to you on commencement of delivery. We do not accept liability for any loss, theft or damage to the products after delivery.
Delivery methods & locations: We work with a number of delivery partners and courier companies in order to deliver nationwide; in some cases this may be handed to a third party to ensure remote areas can be accommodated. Your order will be delivered to the delivery address provided by you during the checkout process or as updated through our Customer Care team after your order is finalised.
Delivery is to a ground floor; if the delivery is in a multi-story building the delivery company will not travel past the ground floor front door.
For larger high value items, we may be able to offer alternate delivery service, however this is not available for all items and all areas. Our customer care team can confirm if this is available to your order and area, applicable fees and charges will apply for this service.
We cannot deliver to PO boxes or Parcel Lockers because they're usually too small to accept most of the items we sell. Most of our goods are delivered by courier or specialist furniture carrier directly to your door and require a signature upon delivery.
Our delivery partner may leave a card at the address and you will need to pick up the delivery from an Australia Post outlet or contact the courier company to arrange for redelivery.
We reserve the right to refuse delivery to specific locations for items we deem at high risk of loss or damage, and also areas that are inaccessible with standard courier and delivery services. In this case, you may choose to have an item delivered using your own couriers, in which case all insurance for loss or damage to the order caused by the delivery will be your responsibility.
You agree to pay any shipping and handling charges presented to you at the time you make a purchase.
We deliver most products Australia-wide. In some cases, we will only be able to deliver products in metropolitan areas. This information will be shown on the product listing. We are not able to accept orders for international delivery at this time.
Delivery failure: It is important that you verify your information is correct before placing your order, especially your delivery address. If the address provided is incorrect and the package is returned, you will be billed for the additional shipping charges in order for your delivery to reach you. You agree to this by placing an order with us, we reserve the right to pass on applicable charges to you if you provide wrong address information. We also require a contact phone number, which may be used by the courier to arrange delivery. If we and our delivery partner have been unable to deliver your order due to your error or fault after 21 days or 2 attempts (whichever is sooner), we reserve the right to cancel your order. In these circumstances we will refund you the price of your order, less the delivery and handling fees incurred by us.
Next day and Fast Track dispatch: Next day dispatch applies to sale events and products displaying the 'Next Day Dispatch' icon. Fast Track applies to all items and products that display an estimated dispatch time of 1-3 business days.
Orders received and processed by us before 11:59pm AEST each business day will be dispatched on the following business day for Next Day Dispatch items, and within 1-3 business days for Fast Track items. Orders received and processed by us on Friday or weekend days will be dispatched on the following Monday for Next Day dispatch items, whilst Fast Track will dispatch within 1-3 business days following the preceding weekend. Please note that items will be dispatched directly from our supplier. We will use our best endeavours to assist our supplier to dispatch within the estimated timeframe, but it is always possible that delays will occur due to factors outside our control. Similarly, delivery times may vary due to external factors beyond our control. Purchases are subject to our usual Terms & Conditions.
Evening Delivery Option - 5:30pm to 9pm Monday to Friday
The Evening delivery option allows you to receive your purchase between 5:30pm and 9pm on the first available business day. You will receive an SMS notification on the morning of the day that your delivery will arrive.
Weekend Delivery Option - 9am to 5pm Saturday or 9am to 5pm Sunday
The Saturday or Sunday delivery options allow you to receive your purchase between 9am and 5pm on the first available Saturday or Sunday (your choice of day), excluding public holidays. You will receive an SMS notification on the Friday before your delivery will arrive.
Evening and Weekend Missed Deliveries and Rebooking
If any issues are encountered prior to the scheduled delivery on the day, we will keep you updated on the tracking page, accessible through My Orders, as well as by SMS and email. There can be instances where our drivers will face traffic delays or accidents on the road and this will not allow us to deliver to you as planned. Our Delivery Partner/Customer Care will get in touch with you to confirm an alternative delivery day.
If you are not home to receive a delivery and you have not authorised to leave the package at the door, a card will be left with details to organise an alternative delivery day with our delivery partner.
To ensure your missed delivery gets to you as quickly as possible, our delivery partner will utilise our evening delivery option for your alternative delivery.
Partial Deliveries for Evening and Weekend
For Evening and Weekend orders, if some packages in your order arrive at the depot earlier than others, these will be delivered to you at the next available, nominated delivery time (e.g. Saturday) without waiting for the rest of your order. This is to avoid leaving your packages at the depot for extended periods while we are waiting for more packages and available weekend delivery windows.
30 day returns
We want you to love the products you buy from us. If you change your mind, you may return it to us within 30 days of the date you received it, no questions asked.
You will be responsible for the actual shipping costs to facilitate a change of mind return, irrespective of any free, discounted or any other type of shipping promotion that may have been applicable at the time of your order. This includes the costs of shipping the item to you in the first place and the cost of shipping back to us.
Please contact us with your name and order number and our customer care team will arrange the return for you.
Items returned must be in 'as-new' condition and packaged securely in the original packaging. This means you have not used, assembled, damaged, washed or laundered any of the items.
Non-returnable items excluded from all change of mind returns include:
- Products described as "made to order"
- Mattresses, bedding, pillows and sofa covers
- All forms of clearance stock (e.g. warehouse, floor stock etc.)
- Clearance items
- Personalised items
- Gift Cards
- Orders for commercial or non-domestic use
Within 5 business days of receiving your return, and subject to confirming it is in 'as-new' condition, we will issue you with a store credit voucher via email in an amount equal to the price you paid for the product, less the cost to ship the product to you and the return shipping back to the warehouse. Credits are issued in the form of store credit. If you opted for Purchase Protection on your order, credit will be in the form of the original payment method.
Store credit voucher codes will be valid for one (1) year from the date of issue.
We will not accept returns delivered in person to our depots, offices or warehouse facilities.
To arrange a return, please go to our Returns Centre or contact us for assistance.
Damaged in transit
Unfortunately items are occasionally damaged in transit.
If an item arrives and the packaging or the item itself is clearly and significantly damaged, you should take photos or video showing the damage, refuse to accept the delivery and contact us immediately. We'll share your feedback with our delivery partners and suppliers to ensure our service and the quality of packaging is improved.
If you notice that an item is damaged after it has been delivered to you, please take photos or video clearly showing the damage and contact us as soon as possible, ideally within 3 business days of receiving your delivery.
The type of remedy we offer will depend upon the circumstances. We will work collaboratively with you to find an outcome that you're happy with. For example we may arrange to:
- Suggest a self repair (with an offer of compensation to you)
- Arrange a repair by a local tradesperson in your area (with an offer of compensation to you)
- Offer a partial or full store credit voucher or refund
- Replace the product (subject to availability)
- Arrange for the product to be returned to us or our supplier
If we require you to return the product to us, we will pay the cost of the return.
Wrong item delivered
Very occasionally we may accidentally ship the wrong item to you. If you have received an incorrect item, let us know as soon as you can, ideally within 3 business days of receiving your delivery. We will offer to send you the correct item and arrange for the pick up and return of the incorrectly shipped item at no cost to you.
Faults and Warranty Claims
Assembl warrants all goods to be free from defects in materials and workmanship, and of acceptable quality and durability for the purpose for which they are designed. Warranties and guarantees are provided in accordance with Australian Consumer Law.
If an item arrives that is missing parts, is faulty, is defective or has been damaged during manufacturing, please take photos or video clearly illustrating the problem and contact us as soon as possible, ideally within 3 business days of receiving your delivery.
The best solution to any product fault depends on the nature of the fault itself, and the outcome that works best for you. We will work collaboratively with you to find a solution that you're happy with. For example we may arrange one or a combination of the following:
- Send you any missing parts or components
- Suggest a method self repair (with an offer of compensation to you)
- Arrange a repair by a local tradesperson in your area (with an offer of compensation to you)
- Replace the product (subject to availability)
- Offer you an alternative product
- Offer a partial or full store credit voucher or refund
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 goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
This Faults and Warranties policy does not cover:
- Normal wear and tear
- Damage arising from improper assembly or modification
- Damage arising from abnormal use or abuse
- Damage, wear and tear as a result of improper or lack of maintenance and/or care (e.g. fabric, leather or timber)
- Damage to external or product packaging only
- Damage occurring during your own handling and transportation of goods from a Click & Collect pick up location
- Insignificant minor variations in dimensions, colour, grain or finish
- Insignificant minor imperfections or superficial blemishes
For your convenience and complete peace of mind we offer Purchase Protection (for a small fee) during checkout. In the event you make a claim on your Purchase Protection, the cost of the Purchase Protection is non-refundable.
Purchase Protection includes:
A refund to your original method of payment if you change your mind. If you don’t have Purchase Protection we offer a store credit rather than a refund for change of mind.
If you change your mind, you may return your order to us within 60 days of the date you received it, no questions asked, subject to other terms of our Returns Policy. Our standard change of mind return time frame is 30 days.
If we agree you need a replacement product, we'll place an order for a replacement even before we receive the first item back. In the event the replacement has to be backordered, we'll let you know and give you the option of accepting the backorder or cancelling for a full refund.
We reserve the right to refuse claims under our Purchase Protection policy in circumstances where we believe that claim is invalid.
Normally, if you change your mind, we'll give you a store credit. However, if you've included Purchase Protection at checkout, and you change your mind, we'll provide a refund to your original method of payment. Our Refund Guarantee is subject to the terms and conditions applicable to 'RETURNS'. Please note that some items are specifically excluded from all change of mind returns.
You may cancel an order, or part thereof, only before an order reaches the dispatch processing stage, in this case you will receive a store credit voucher or refund in the amount you paid for the product, including shipping. After an order, or part thereof, reaches the dispatch processing stage, cancellations or changes may not be possible. As we endeavour to send your order to you as soon as possible, which often will be within 24 hours, requests for cancellations need to be lodged as soon as practicable after ordering. Once items have shipped, you cannot cancel them. Products described as 'made to order' cannot be cancelled. Please be advised, for Click & Collect, Next day and Fast Track dispatch items, no cancellations or changes may be possible.
Unfortunately we do not offer exchanges. Simply return your items in accordance with our returns policy and place a new order.
Your consumer rights
The goods you purchase come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. If your product is faulty, broken or otherwise non-compliant with a consumer guarantee under the Australian Consumer Law please contact us as soon as possible with your name and order number and our customer care team will look after you.
We reserve the right to refuse a return in cases where we cannot be reasonably satisfied that you purchased the product from us and where we deem damage to a product to be due to fair wear and tear, misuse, failure to use in accordance with manufacturer's instructions or failure to take reasonable care.
In some cases products offered for sale on our website may be subject to a separate manufacturer's warranty. This will be communicated on the relevant product page. In this case we request that you contact the manufacturer directly. If the manufacturer is unable to assist you or you are not happy with the resolution of your issue, please contact us for help. We will be happy to liaise with the manufacturer for you but our liability will be limited to the refund of your purchase price.
Customer may purchase digital Gift Cards from our website. Gift Cards and store credits cannot be used to purchase Gift Cards.
In the case of digital Gift Cards, we will email the Gift Card to the recipient 's email address, as provided by the purchasing member. The email will include instructions and a link for redeeming the Gift Card. After the recipient has redeemed the Gift Card, the Gift Card amount will appear in the my account section of the members profile.
Gift Cards, once redeemed, may only be used for purchases at the Assembl website. If a purchase made using a Gift Card is for less than the amount of the Gift Card, the remaining balance will appear on the recipient's account for future use. If a purchase made using a Gift Card is for more than the amount of the Gift Card, the purchaser will be required to pay the excess using another payment method. The amount remaining can be viewed on your My Account page. If an order made using a Gift Card is cancelled or returned, the portion of the purchase attributable to the Gift Card will be refunded as a store credit only, this is not redeemable for cash.
Gift Cards purchased on or after 18 October 2017 expire 3 years after the date of their purchase. Gift Cards purchased prior to 18 October 2017 expire 1 year after the date of their purchase. Expiry dates cannot be modified. Any balance that remains after the expiry date will not be available for use.
Gift Cards are not transferrable and cannot be returned or exchanged wholly or partly for cash. Gift cards should be treated as cash. You are responsible for the use and safety of your Gift Card.

Direct Import Goods
Products available for purchase from Assembl may be sourced from within Australia or from International Markets. Products which are sourced directly from outside Australia and are available for sale on assembl.com.au are specifically labeled as Direct Import Goods.
By purchasing Direct Import Goods you acknowledge and agree that you will be recorded as the importer of record. As a result you will be the responsible party for any Taxes associated with the importation of goods. Taxes, Duties and Shipping charges will be provided in full at the time of checkout. You acknowledge that Assembl is not liable for any loss, damage, cost or expense that you incur as a result of your obligation to act as the importer of record for the Direct Import Goods. Orders with a customs value over the ‘low value import threshold’ (currently AUD$1,000, subject to change at any time) are subject to duties and taxes, which if applicable on your order, will be calculated at checkout and paid by the customer. For further information on applicable duties and taxes, visit www.customs.gov.au.
For Australian customs purposes, each order placed will be considered as the one consignment in which case the total value of the number of Imported Goods will be taken into account in assessing whether the low value import threshold has been reached.
Assembl will be using its Nominated Delivery Agent for all shipping and delivery requirements, on your behalf. The cost of shipping and any other duties will be charged separately from the price of the Direct Import Goods. All charges will be shown and charged in full at the time of checkout.
Direct Import Goods are sourced from international markets and as such some may not be available for sale in Australia. This means that there may be no Australia Recommended Retail Price for some Products. Where we have been able to establish that a Product is for sale in the country, we have used that products market price as the Recommended Retail Price. In other cases, a Recommended Retail Price or “List Price” has been established by converting the price in the market from which the goods were sourced into Australian dollars. This List Price is sourced and converted to Australian Dollars daily to ensure the best possible reflect of foreign market prices. Exchange Rates are sourced daily with data provided by Yahoo and Google.
Returns for all Direct Import Goods will be subject to the standard 30-Day Return Policy, however all returns will be sent to an Australian location for local processing. As such the cost of return shipments will not incur any international shipping charges
