Creating an order.

Orders can be created using our websites. You may
also contact us via telephone (011-680-5722) or by email
sales@boardmaster.co.za to request a quote.

Accepting your order and creating an electronic contract.

The steps required in creating the contract between
you and Boardmaster are as follows:

1.     You will be guided
through the process of booking a delivery/collection slot and filling your
shopping trolley/basket though a series of simple steps on our websites.

2.     The final step in
placing your order will be by confirming the accuracy of your trolley and the
associated guide price to be charged to your chosen payment method/s. You order
is confirmed on completion of the checkout process.

3.     We will send to you an
order acknowledgement email detailing the products you have ordered and any
associated delivery or collection information.

The email acknowledgement will present an
‘indicative or guide price’ only and will be subject to change depending on,
but not limited to, the following:

1.     The price of the
product changing between the time your order is placed and the day of delivery.

2.     Some items in your
order may not be available at the time of picking and therefore will not be
added to your order.

    1. You will be contacted by a
      salesperson to inform you when the item will be available and to advise
      you on further options.
    2. These options may include a
      refund, alternative product option or later delivery date.

Our acceptance of an order takes place on acceptance
of the order details and payment details online, at which point the purchase
contract will be made and you will be charged for your order. Dispatch will
occur on the day of delivery, subject to normal operating procedures.

Non-acceptance of an order may be as a result of
one of the following, but not limited to:

1.     The product you
ordered is not available from stock.

2.     We are unable to
obtain authorisation for your payment.

3.     A price or product
description error is identified.

4.     You do not meet the
eligibility to order criteria set out in the main Terms and Conditions.

The contract will be concluded in English. Details
of your specific agreement to the contract will not be filed by Boardmaster. If
you do require any information regarding orders you have placed with
Boardmaster , please contact us

All offers are subject to availability and while
stocks last.


Risk and Ownership of the goods

For the avoidance of doubt, the ownership and risk
associated with your goods will be held by Boardmaster up until the point at
which the goods are received by the customer on delivery or collection. Any
damage, disappearance or theft of goods post-delivery or collection, will
become the responsibility of the person who placed the order and against whom
the contract is binding.

Please note that Boardmaster cannot be held
responsible for orders placed incorrectly on our websites, even if the error
was in good faith. Should an order error be discovered during the delivery
process, any items not wanted may be returned with the driver and will be refunded.
A handling fee may be charged, this will be dependent on the circumstances of
the transaction and the products ordered. Boardmaster will not be responsible
for delivering the originally intended item unless as part of a new delivery
and/or subject to a further delivery charge.


Stock availability

Only items indicated as available on our websites
can be purchased online. Other products which we stock which are not listed
will have to be ordered by telephone (011-680-5722), email (
or visiting our store (54 Harry st, Robertsham JHB)

Due to the fact that we carefully choose your goods
in store, we may occasionally run out of stock before we can update our stock
availability on the Websites. We endeavour to keep this to a minimum.

Special instructions

Special instructions can be provided for your
personal shopper as well as for your delivery driver. We will endeavour to meet
these instructions subject to them complying with the Terms and Conditions as
laid out. However, these instructions fall outside of the Contract and we
accept no responsibility for them not being met. For the avoidance of doubt, we
will not accept special instructions on an order relating, but not limited to,
the following:

1.     Requesting a delivery
time outside of the delivery slot booked.

2.     Requesting a specific
delivery time within the delivery slot booked.

3.     Requesting a different
delivery address to that captured as part of the order placement process.

4.     Requesting updates to
any personal profile information or preferences.


Where we deliver to and restrictions thereof.

The delivery service is available in restricted
areas as offered on our Websites. From time to time, and with no prior warning,
we will update the delivery coverage areas. Whilst we endeavour to expand our
coverage, we reserve the right to restrict deliveries in certain areas,
including areas previously covered by our service.

The deliveries are booked on a first come, first
served basis. We do endeavour to deliver all orders a.s.a.p.

We also reserve the right to withdraw our services
to individual customers’ addresses subject, but not limited, to the following:

1.     Dangerous delivery
conditions that pose a health and safety risk for our delivery drivers and/or
any assistant;

2.     Unavailability of free
suitable, and legal, parking and offloading space;

3.     Excessive distance
between the vehicle offload point and the final customer handover point,
including any unreasonable requirement or expectation to climb stairs or
negotiate other physical obstacles;

4.     Repeated
unavailability of an authorised signatory to take delivery.

5.     Repeat and excessive
returns that misuse the reasonable nature of the service.

6.     Repeat and/or
excessive short supply or damage claims for which responsibility or liability
cannot be determined.

Should we not deliver to your area and you would
like us to – please submit your location to us
here and we will contact
you when/if we are able to extend coverage to your area.

We cannot accept responsibility for the provision
of an incorrect delivery address. We will deliver to the address provided at
point of order submission. This delivery address is clearly displayed
throughout the online shopping experience and can easily be changed at any
point up until final payment confirmation.


The delivery process, including where you cannot be present.

Deliveries will be made at our earliest
convenience. Furniture deliveries will be arranged via telephone once the
manufacture of the item is complete.

The driver will bring the goods  to the door of the premises or business only.

Only at your express invitation and risk, the
driver can be requested to take your shopping into your premises (or an
appropriate designated area for a business) where your goods will be dropped
off . Providing entry into your premises is at your own risk. Boardmaster
accepts no liability or responsibility for any loss or damages occurring as a
result of or consequence of your request for the driver entering your premises,
whether or not the loss or damages could be construed to be as a result of
negligent behaviour.

Goods must be accepted by you, or by a nominated
representative who must be aged 18 or above. Under no circumstances will goods
be left unattended, for example in a garage, or with anybody below the age of

It is your responsibility to be present (or make
sure an authorised signatory is present) for the full duration of your chosen
delivery period. If, in the event that no authorised signatory is available to
accept your delivery order, our driver will wait a total period of 10 (ten)
minutes for an authorised person to present themselves prior to leaving and
returning your order to us. For the avoidance of doubt, the driver may leave
before the end of the delivery slot provided they have arrived after the
beginning of the slot and waited a minimum of 10 (ten) minutes for an
authorised signatory. You will be asked to contact us at your earliest
convenience to arrange an alternative delivery time. You will be liable for a
re-delivery fee equal to the current delivery price and possibly a handling fee.

You will be responsible for arranging the
re-delivery or refund with a Boardmaster sales consultant.

On delivery of your order please check goods for scratches and damages, as they must be returned with the driver immediately. Goods returned at a later stage will not be exchanged or refunded.

Please note adverse weather conditions, accidents,
road work, unusual traffic congestion or any other events outside of our reasonable
control may result in the occasional late or cancelled delivery. If that is the
case we will endeavour to contact you as soon as we are able to and reschedule
your delivery time and date. In any event for cancelled deliveries our
liability to you will be limited to refunding the price of any goods not
delivered and the associated delivery charge. We cannot be held liable for
delivery delays outside of our control and any refund where liability is
accepted will be limited to the cost of the delivery charge.

Deliveries are limited to 1 delivery per address
per day.


Unpacking and the checking of orders

Due to the physical nature of a delivery our
drivers will not carry goods ascending or descending stairs. Deliveries to
other levels will require the provision of a goods lift located within a
reasonable distance of the final delivery point.

The driver will unpack your order into open surface
only – either at the door of your premises or business (or appropriate
designated area for a business) at your express request  For the avoidance of doubt, this will not
include unpacking onto racks.

It is your responsibility to check the invoice
against the delivered goods in a timely manner and not to unduly delay the
driver in the process.

All goods are to be checked by you or your
authorised representative to ensure but not limited to:

1.     The boards are not
scratched or damaged.

2.     The correct quantity
of each item is received.

3.     The correct goods,
according to the invoice, have been delivered.

immediately. These goods will be replaced or refunded (see 3.17). We will not
accept any damaged or scratched returns after our driver has left your

communicated immediately with a Boardmaster sales consultant.

notification, to take into account local conditions and quality of service in
accordance with every delivery address.

Excluded products and supplementary charges, such as delivery, shall not count
towards a minimum spending requirement.

There is currently no maximum order restriction;
however Boardmaster reserves the right to limit quantities at any time and
without prior notification. In order to provide a high quality of service,
orders above a threshold in terms of quantity and/or value will be restricted
in terms of delivery slot availability. Typically, but not limited to, this
restriction will be to provide Boardmaster a longer lead time to prepare the
order for delivery or collection. Boardmaster reserves the right to alter the
nature or terms of this restriction and/or threshold at any point and without
prior notification.



Goods charged for but not supplied.

In the event of there being an item missing from an
order but included on the invoice, this should immediately be brought to the
attention of the delivery driver, agreed upon as such, and noted on the signed
invoice (to be returned with the driver). A full refund will be issued for the noted
items on receipt of the signed invoice. Failure to notify of any shortages of
products at this point will designate full acceptance of the delivery in
accordance with the signed invoice. This does not affect your statutory rights
with respect to the products purchased.

Please note that Boardmaster will not, and is under
no obligation to, make any redelivery as result of missing items. Boardmaster
obligation will be to remedy the situation through a refund. Should a redelivery
be requested, Boardmaster reserves the right to either decline the request or
charge a redelivery fee commensurate to the standard delivery fee schedule.


Damaged goods or delivery order errors

concerns or a difference with respect to the invoice and items delivered, these
should immediately be brought to the attention of the delivery driver and noted
as such on the signed invoice. Goods marked on the invoice for return, whether
for damages or other reasons, must be given back to the driver and will be
returned for a full refund. Failure to notify the driver of errors, or of
unacceptable condition of any products, at this point will designate full
acceptance of the delivery in accordance with the signed invoice. This does not
affect your statutory rights with respect to the products purchased.

no obligation to, offer any redelivery as result of damaged items, quality concerns
or errors. Boardmaster’s obligation will be to remedy the situation through a
refund when the item/s is/are returned with the delivery driver. Should a redelivery

made after the goods have been received back into stock by Boardmaster. We will
process any returns, ordered via Online Shopping and returned via our delivery
