We do not disclose any confidential information of our customers to third parties. Safeguarding your personal information is a high priority for us.
Our website uses ‘cookies’ that automatically collects limited, non-personally identifying information made available by your browser.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the practices of our website, please contact Sebastian Kellner.
Upon receiving your confirmed order placement, we provide you with an expected date of shipping. The shipping takes approximately 3 to 4 weeks, subject to fluctuations. If you have any questions about your order or shipping date, please contact us.
Confirmation of Shipping Date
Approximately a week prior to the expected date of shipping, we will contact you to verify the order schedule. For complete delivery details, contact us by phone or email. We require that you be prepared to accept the delivery of your products when it is ready to be shipped.
We store products for a period of 7 days past the specified date for shipping without any charge. However, we levy a fee of $50 per day after that. After 30 days, the product will be disposed of and we will request the balance due of the contract.
Changing an Order
For any changes on confirmed order placements, we request you to contact us within 4 business days from the day of order placement. We do not charge a fee within this time period; however, if you request changes after the 4 days, we charge a sum of $75 for every change requested.
Please note, the changes can only be processed if the structure has not been built yet. Modifications post production are extremely difficult and expensive.
We encourage you to make your selections carefully to ensure you are completely satisfied with your purchase decision.
Returns & Cancellations
We do not encourage order cancellations as each unit is custom-made to satisfy the needs of individual customers. Please ensure that you place orders after due consideration of your exact needs and requirements. We offer complete guidance to help you choose and make sound decisions that match your specific needs. We ensure that we work based on specific needs every time, and pride ourselves in delivering exceptional and timely results.
Refunds & Permits
If the laws in your area require permits, we request you to arrange for the same. We extend our full support through the process.
Since every unit we work on is based on individual and specific needs and customized for each customer, our deposits are non-refundable. We encourage our customers to get the permits before placing an order to avoid cancellations at a later stage.
If by any chance we are unable to meet the zoning by-laws in your area, we will provide you with a full refund of your deposit amount; within 90 days of the purchase date. In case major modifications are required we will advise you of the incremental costs. In case you choose not to proceed with the modifications, we will refund the full deposit amount and cancel your order.
Manufacturing or Shipping Problems
We give high priority to our manufacturing and shipping process by scrutinizing the entire process closely. We wish to make it a happy experience for you from the start to the very end, and even after!
In case of a problem, or if you have any concerns, kindly contact us immediately. We provide prompt assistance by email or by phone to all our customers.
