Please refer to the delivery information on the Website to check that you are in our delivery area. If you are not in our delivery area, please contact us to discuss delivery options.

(b) Timing: Sabe’s Hobby House will endeavour to despatch orders as quickly as possible or within 5 working days of receiving the order. Some delays of several days or more are to be expected during peak periods between October and December months. Sabe’s Hobby House is not responsible for late deliveries. Sabe’s Hobby House takes no responsibility for the delay of deliveries caused by any courier or other third party delivering the goods. Likewise, Sabe’s Hobby House is not liable for any burden, stress, inconvenience, hardship or financial loss caused by any delays. Customers are advised to place orders well ahead of time to ensure sufficient time for delivery during peak periods to minimise risk of unexpected delays. We will deliver the product to the place of delivery you specify when making your order.

(c) Method: We may deliver the products via a range of delivery methods. You must sign whatever forms, delivery dockets, or consignment notes are presented by the courier prior to acceptance of the purchased goods. Refusal to sign or accept delivery from the courier means you risk your order being returned back to Sabe’s Hobby House. Under such circumstances, you acknowledge that shipping and handling fees are payable for any subsequent re-deliveries. You also acknowledge any costs incurred and made payable by the courier in connection with any return or re-delivery will be passed on to you by Sabe’s Hobby House for payment prior to the handling and/or further requests or processing of such order.

If your payment is declined for any reason, we reserve the right to reclaim the products from your possession, custody or control even if they have been delivered to you or moved from the delivery address. We reserve the right to keep or sell the products. Risk of loss, damage or deterioration to any products will pass to you on delivery.

  1. Consumer Law

(a) ACL: Certain legislation including the Australian Consumer Law (“ACL”) in the Consumer and Competition Act 2010 (Cth), and similar consumer protection laws and regulations may confer you with rights, warranties, guarantees and remedies relating to the provision of goods or services to you by us via the Website which cannot be excluded, restricted or modified. Our liability is governed solely by the ACL and these Terms.

(b) Goods: If you are a consumer as defined in the ACL, the following notice applies to you: “Our goods come with warranties and guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law (Consumer Guarantees). You are entitled to a replacement or a refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.”

(c) Warranties:

(i) To the extent permitted by law, we exclude all express and implied warranties, and all material and work is provided to you without warranties of any kind, either express or implied. We expressly disclaim all warranties including but not limited to implied warranties of merchantability and/or fitness for a particular purpose.

(ii) The product may come with a manufacturer’s warranty. The manufacturer’s warranty is in addition to but may overlap with any rights and remedies you may have under applicable law, including any Consumer Guarantees. If you are not considered a “consumer” within the meaning of the ACL, the manufacturer’s warranty may be your sole remedy. You should check the manufacturer’s warranty, as many manufacturers’ warranties do not apply in a business or commercial setting. Please contact the manufacturer if you would like to make a claim under the manufacturer’s warranty.

  1. Product Returns & Exchanges

(a) Product returns cannot be made by the Customer without the prior knowledge and approval of Sabe’s Hobby House. If you wish to seek repair, replacement or a refund for a product, please contact us and we will explain the requirements to you. This may include you providing proof of purchase and evidence of the faulty product to us. As per our Australian retail law there is no change of mind. Refunds will only be given for item not as described or if damaged on arrival and we are not able to replace. If we are able to replace your item, we will do so. As this is not your fault, we will cover the post both ways. Any refund we make will be by the same payment method used to purchase the product. If a product is found not to be defective, we will return the product to you at your cost.

(b) Returns received in a damaged state will not be accepted. Unless a product is faulty or defective under the manufacturer’s warranty, it will not be accepted by Sabe’s Hobby House in an opened or used state. This includes the removal of any product seals, shrink wrapping, protective materials, stickers or product attachments and/or accessories.

(c) Special or custom-made orders placed by Customers may not be returned for refund or exchanged.

(d) Products that have been returned under warranty and are deemed by Sabe’s Hobby House to be misused, abused, or subject to inappropriate handling will not be accepted for refund or exchange. Battery operated products will not be accepted for return unless all reasonable measures have been taken to ensure the product is not defective as a result of a battery related issue.

(e) All returned products must arrive undamaged and in ‘sale-able’ condition, including all packaging.

  1. Lost or Damaged Goods

If your products are damaged upon receipt of delivery, you are required to notify Sabe’s Hobby House of any claims, regarding replacement, within seven (7) days of receipt. Sabe’s Hobby House will provide assistance with respect of the return, costs and the dispatch of any replacement products. In the event that replacement products are unavailable or out of stock, at the discretion of Sabe’s Hobby House we may permit substitute products or issue a refund. Sabe’s Hobby House accepts no responsibility for any delays that may arise from the return of the damaged product to our store or the subsequent delivery of replacement products to the Customer.

A product can only be deemed as lost or stolen during delivery by the carrier/courier responsible for the delivery of such product. Sabe’s Hobby House cannot provide any remedial action until a proper investigation by the carrier/courier is concluded and the product is deemed by them to be lost or stolen. Such investigations can take as long as 10 to 14 days. Sabe’s Hobby House will not accept any claims for lost or stolen products which are made more than 30 days after the order date of such products.

Where a Customer’s contact information is inaccurate, Sabe’s Hobby House may decline, refuse, cancel, delay or postpone the processing of the Customer’s order without notice. Failure by the Customer to update or provide accurate Profile details may result in the loss/delay of deliveries by our courier and/or risk having the Customer’s payment declined by its financial institution. Sabe’s Hobby House is not responsible for any matters arising as a result of inaccurate information provided by the Customer.

It is the Customer’s responsibility to keep its Profile details confidential. The Customer is liable for all activity using its Profile, including purchases made when using their Profile details.
