Where delivery is by our courier service or third party carrier/s and no-one is available to take delivery, they will leave a card requesting you to contact them to arrange a reasonable time and date for delivery. Delivery dates and times quoted by us, our carriers and contractors are estimated times only. We will use our reasonable efforts to deliver your Products to you within the estimated delivery time for your order; however, we do not guarantee that we will deliver within this time frame. Title and risk of loss to all Products will pass to you on delivery.
Consumer guarantees apply under the Australian Consumer Law. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions excludes the application of those guarantees. For more information about your rights as a consumer, see the Australian Consumer Law website at http://www.consumerlaw.gov.au. If a Product has a minor defect, we will provide a repair or offer you a replacement or a refund. If a Product has a major defect, you are entitled to:
reject the goods and receive a refund
reject the goods and receive an identical replacement, or one of similar value if reasonably available, or
keep the goods and receive compensation for the drop in value caused by the problem.
If you believe that a Product is defective you should contact our Customer Service Warranties and a Ready Signs Customer Service Representative will assist you. Further documentation/Evidence may be requested to assist with the assessment of your claim. Where a Product is deemed defective by us and needs to be replaced or repaired, return shipping will be arranged at the expense of Ready Signs . If a Product is replaced, your replacement Product becomes your property and the returned Product becomes our property. When a refund is given, the returned Product becomes our property. If assessment of the item can only be conducted at our premises as the result of insufficient or inconclusive information in support of your claim, you will need to pay for any associated costs of having the item returned to us until the item can be examined further.
Additional Ready Signs Warranties
Ready Signs also offers the standard warranty against defects and workmanship on all new Products. You also have consumer guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law (see above). If you believe that a new Ready Signs product has a defect, you should contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 1300 277 266. We encourage the notification of claims under this warranty within 14 days by paying for the return of a Product where a claim is notified within that time and we determine that the Product is defective. Where claims are made more than 14 days after delivery, we will require details of the concern along with full details about the way the product has been used before authorising return of the product. Where a product is authorised for return Ready Signs will pay the cost of returning the product. If you are asked to return a product, follow the instructions given in Returning a Product below. Where a refund is given for a product and the claim is not covered by a consumer guarantee, it may be given as a Refund Credit to Your Account. Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. 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. Replacement Products are covered by the same Ready Signs warranty as that applicable to the original product. They are also covered by consumer guarantees (see Consumer Guarantees above).
Returning a Product
Returning a product if you change your mind
Due to the nature of customisation of design and manufacture , we cannot exchange the majority of our products. Consumer guarantees (see above) apply to products where the actual order differs from what you have received, or in the event of defect in workmanship or otherwise,
Return Authorisation Number - A Must Have
A Return Authorisation (RA) number is required for replacement Products and refunds. Where Customer Service has provisionally determined that a Product is defective , Customer Service will issue you with an RA. Products cannot be returned without an RA. The Product should be returned to Ready Signs within 30 calendar days of the issuance of the RA. Where possible, all Products should be packed in the original, unmarked packaging including any accessories, manuals, documentation and registration that shipped with the Product. If the accessories are not included, only a partial refund will be applied.
Organising the Return of Products
Products must be returned whenever we agree to provide you with a refund or replace the Product. Where you received a defective Product by Australia Post eParcel, Customer Service will email you a PDF voucher containing an RA which you must affix to the product. Ready Signs will work with you regarding returned items automatically if you notify us immediately of your intention to return. You must then take the Product to any Australia Post Office for return. Where you have received a defective Product , we will make arrangements with you regarding return shipping.
When a Replacement Product is arranged
A replacement for the same Product that you ordered will be shipped to you at our expense after we have received your returned Product, or examined your order on a one on one basis.
The delivery time for the replacement Product will be the same as stated for the original Product.
Some Products - Manufacturer Warranty
Some Products sold through Ready Signs are serviced and supported by the manufacturer or supplier. Ready Signs recognises that customers purchasing some products, require a high level of support therefore we would ask you to contact the manufacturer or supplier for trouble-shooting assistance. If the manufacturer or supplier is unable to assist, and the product is covered by a consumer guarantee, Ready Signs will provide a suitable remedy.
Products with User-Generated Data Capabilities - Repairs
The repair process of your goods may result in the loss of some or all user-generated data. Please ensure that you have made a copy of any data saved on your goods prior to submitting it for repair.

Fraud Protection or Prevention Procedures

After verification this information will be destroyed. In this case, until your order has passed internal Fraud Prevention procedure checks your order will remain on Pending status. If you do not provide the requested information within 7 days, your order will be cancelled and your payment will be refunded back to the method in which you paid. These information requests are sent to help protect Credit Card and PayPal account holders from online fraud.
