Terms & Conditions
Thank you for visiting our online store. The website https://www.luco.com.au/ (the “Website”) is owned and operated by Luco Furniture & Decoration Pty Ltd (trading as Luco Furniture & Decoration, and referred as “Luco”, “we”, “us”, “our”, or “the Company”).
Information on this website may be changed or updated from time to time, and Luco is not obliged to notify you of the changes. Hence you should check our published terms & conditions and policies from time to time to acquaint yourself with the latest version.
We endeavor to ensure that all information on the goods on our website is accurate, and we rely on information provided by product manufacturers. Unfortunately, on some occasions, it is possible that this information may contain errors or inaccuracies and we reserve the right to correct these at any time, including after an order is placed.
Variation and minor imperfections
Some of our products are made from natural or organic materials, such as solid woods. Colour and grain variations are the natural characteristics of these materials, hence these variations are evident in every piece of the product made from these materials. These variations contribute to the uniqueness and make apparent the natural beauty of using natural or organic materials. They are accepted throughout the wood furniture industry.
In addition to the above, natural wood products will show knots, fine lines that may look like scratches, blemishes, splits, and fissures that add to the distinct character of each exceptional piece and therefore these natural occurrences shall also not be deemed as a defect.
Due to the photo shooting condition and screen setting, products received may differ to a small extent in visual appearance (eg. Colour, textures) from the imageries on our website.
Underside/rear of the furniture
It is normal and to be expected that the underside and rear of the furniture are not finished to the same standard as other areas of the furniture that is meant to be visible during normal everyday usage. By doing this, we are able to offer you your beautiful piece of furniture at a very affordable price.

Damaged or faulty items
Please notify Luco as soon as possible if your item arrives damaged or faulty.

This should usually include at least one close-up photo and another overall photo/video of the whole package(s). Photos or video recordings that can show the damage clearly would allow us to resolve the matter faster.

Any product returned to us must be transported in suitably protective outer packaging and in a manner adequate to withstand the ordinary risks associated with transport. Any loose products will be rejected by the courier and damages caused by inadequate packaging will incur additional charges.

On very rare occasion, due to unseen circumstances (last remaining stock damaged), we may need to cancel an order whereby there will not be any replacement stock available as the manufacturer cannot or no longer produce the same stock.
Change of mind return does not apply to trade customers.
All delivery charges on the website on checkout are estimates based on one-man delivery and to the front door of a ground floor. Should you require additional service for delivery past this point, you should always be in touch with us first prior to an order being placed. We will do our best to accomodate your needs but we cannot guarantee the service as this is based upon the courier availability and payment of this service. Changes made to delivery address after placing an order may incur additional charges, which we reserve rights to add to your original delivery fee paid.
Unacceptably high delivery charges
On very rare occasion, there may be unacceptably high delivery charges for an order to be delivered. We reserve the right to contact you to request for further delivery fee or to cancel an order with full refund prior dispatching the order.
Delivery Time Frame
All orders are processed and dispatched within 2 business days.
To offer you quality product at very affordable pricing, we will always try to appoint the most economical third party delivery companies (TNT, Star Track, etc). With that, we have limited control as to the exact timing of the delivery and we may need you to lend us a hand if the item is too heavy or bulky to handle by the driver alone.

Please contact us or leave message in notes box on checkout to let us know should you wish to sign for your order when they arrive, we will contact you and try our best to arrange them for you. Kindly note however, if no one is present to receive the delivery on the scheduled date, a re-delivery will have to be arranged and you may be charged for the redelivery fee.
