DELIVERY GUIDELINES & INFORMATION
We require an Australian street or residential address for all deliveries as we cannot deliver orders to a PO Box or parcel locker.
Adriatic Furniture will always strive to provide a premium delivery service to ensure the products you have purchased are delivered, assembled and installed in the correct position in your room of choice. Please ensure that your room of choice is clear and ready for delivery.
Our priority is to provide a safe and efficient delivery process for our sub-contract delivery partners and all our customers.
Our delivery partners will always extend every professional courtesy, care and assistance when placing your furniture where required. However it is the delivery teams discretion to proceed with a delivery if any danger ensues. Such danger is regarded as anything posing a threat to your furniture, the clients property or their physical health and safety. Their aim is to provide a professional delivery service as well as preventing any damage during transportation of your products when delivered to your home.
Whilst our sub-contractors take extreme care when performing your delivery, Adriatic Furniture will not be held liable for any damage caused when fulfilling your delivery requirement. Any damage to property must be reported directly to the sub contract delivery driver/team and recorded at the time of delivery.
Our delivery teams require your room/s to be ready and clear with sufficient access. We require all customers forewarn us of any access and delivery path challenges, such as narrow stairs or staircases, steep driveways, elevators or partly built homes. You are also required to protect your floors, remove objects which may be in our way that could suffer damage or pose a health and safety risk.
All packaging is the responsibility of our valued clients to dispose of in a correct and sustainable manner. Our delivery partners are expected to leave all packaging in a neat and tidy state following your room of choice delivery.
The importance of Health & Safety is our priority, as is our staff, sub contract delivery teams and members of the public. We understand that they must be given the highest level of protection against risks to their Health & Safety. If for any reason our delivery teams believe that a delivery poses a Health & Safety risk, they are within their rights to refuse to perform a delivery.
If a specialised service is required to uplift any product/s through an unconventional means*, the cost to do so will be at the risk and cost of the purchaser, NOT Adriatic Furniture. In the event of a re-delivery due to the reasons above, you will be charged a minimum re-delivery fee as per the Adriatic Delivery Guide. If there are multiple items, additional charges will apply.
In cases where furniture needs to disassembled and reassembled, a minimum cost of $200.00 + additional redelivery fees will apply. Lounges which need to be disassembled and reassembled will incur a minimum cost of $250.00 + additional redelivery fees. In most cases an independent qualified technician will be required to perform the disassembly and reassembly service.
*Unconventional Means: A height greater than 175cms, requiring a hoist service over a Balcony or balustrade through a window.
DELIVERY & ESTIMATED LEAD TIMES
Every attempt will be made with our logistics partners to meet the estimated delivery time frames quoted. However, the nature of our business means many of our products are imported and we may encounter some unexpected delays which are beyond our control. Keep in mind that your location and order size will ultimately impact the speed of delivery to you.
Delivery dates can only be provided on products that are in stock. If a product/s need to be specially ordered, you will be notified via text message once your products/s have arrived.
You must note that all estimated lead times must be used as a guide only and cannot be guaranteed.

EXPECTATIONS & DELIVERY CHECKLIST
In order for us to provide an, efficient & effective delivery service, we ask you to inform us of any potential difficulties associated with your delivery.
Furniture is also more often large & delicate, therefore we ask that you provide us with as much information which can include measurements and or photos of the delivery path which may include staircases, lifts, steep driveways and narrow hallways / access points. Our sub contract delivery teams follow a strict delivery process, ensuring a safe, reliable service and as a result, we may require some extra time to deliver your goods.
PRIOR TO DELIVERY
The day prior to delivery, you will receive an SMS on the mobile phone number provided at point of sale, confirming the estimated delivery window and asking you to confirm acceptance. We will also provide a link to the Adriatic Care Guide for all products. If all of the information is correct, we will require you to text back, ‘OK’.
