Yes, but only after scheduling. The goods are well packed in high shelves. It is absolutely necessary to make an appointment, so we can check your order before and preposition for self-collection.
What about warranty/guarantee on Tonnen Tumult furniture?
The warranty law also applies to us. You as a buyer have one year to complain about a defect if it was already present when you received the item. However, the seller is not liable for a defect that occurred after you received the goods. For clarification, please send us a brief explanation and a picture of the defect.
What about complaints and returns?
The Tonnen Tumult furniture is perfectly finished but visually perfectly imperfect! They are upcycled products, so already used industrial goods modified into a piece of furniture. The barrels have scattered small dents under the new paint and the wooden boards have small nail holes. In addition, the underside of the bottom fold or feet may have slight scratches due to the movement during production, but these are not visible in use (as written, underside). These blemishes are visible even after processing. This is retro industrial style and not a reason for complaint.
Returns are of course possible, but are at the expense of the buyer.
