Approximate sizes are displayed to help you visualise products by proportion. Sizes indicated in description of products are in centimetres and usually includes one measurement for the longest side. Eg: for tall items the height for long or wide items the widest side.
FREIGHT and DELIVERY.
We DONT try to make money out of the freight cost, and we DONT pump up our product prices and then offer you seemingly cheap freight. We DO however have cheap freight rates, because we are high volume freight customers for our freight contractor. Our policy is for all freight to be charged at the actual cost incurred, calculated after packing, passing on ALL discounts to you the customer. Our freight has a flat rate per order of around $6-$7 and then a rate per Cubic meter of space. (So dont be frightened to split an order into 2 lots. It makes little difference to the freight cost).
You will see your freight cost on the pro-forma invoice before you are asked to pay for it.
Akcent Decor will normally supply your order delivered to your premises via our regular freight companies (where substantial volume discounts we have negotiated are passed directly to you).
Unless other arrangements have been specifically requested by you, orders are usually processed by the next day and are dispatched then or the following day depending on the time order is placed.
OUT OF STOCK ITEMS.
Normally our web-site catalogue keeps track of our stock on hand and displays an item as unavailable when it is out of stock. If however your ordered item is out of stock we will advise and omit it from your order adjusting the charge. Out of stock Items need to be re-ordered by the customer. We do not cater for them as backorders unless you specifically request that on a particular order.
All amounts shown on the Akcent Decor web-site are in Australian dollars. We do not supply goods delivered to areas outside of the Australasia Region
GOODS AND SERVICES TAX.
All goods supplied in Australia incur an Australian Goods and Services Tax (GST), currently 10%. Freight charges also incur GST. For our customers convenience our wholesale prices do not include GST until summarised on the order
