No. We are parallel importer of genuine IKEA and other brands from overseas and do not claim to represent IKEA in New Zealand. We have the largest stock of Ikea products which we buy from Ikea stores in different parts of the world and make available to the New Zealand market. We do sell various other brands as well.
Our office team checks the order and confirms it , you should receive a short email confirming everything within a working day.
Preorders are products that we don’t stock but can get from overseas ( IKEA store or other brand if you ordered that brand). We collect all orders and once a month ( or sooner ) load a shipping container filled with all such orders. These take about 4 weeks to arrive our warehouse. Depending on orders South Island orders are either shipped directly to South Island or to north island warehouse first. You will receive an email once your order starts from overseas. And once again when it arrives our warehouse.
Back orders are products that we stock but currently it’s not in stock. These can take as little as days ( if new shipments are on the way ) or as much as 75 days ( if new orders were just placed overseas ) You will receive an email in about 2 days giving you an idea of when to expect your order.
Managing thousands of products in our warehouse, due to errors/ breakages . Sometimes this happens. There could be a similar product being available ( another color / brand ) or a preorder available. You will be offered that via email within 2 working days of your order. You can choose to switch or get a refund. Just simply reply to the email. If we don’t get a reply to the email in a weeks time we straight away refund you anyways.

North island within two weeks and South Island within 4 weeks. ( This applies to north island stock , South Island instock items get dispatched/ ready for pick up in 2 days only. )
Preorder and back orders follow same time line once they arrive our warehouse.
Sure you can. Just email us and we will be able to confirm the changes usually within a day or two.
We will contact you before attempting delivery. If there is a dry secure place then the delivery guys leave the item there. Otherwise they bring it back and contact you to reschedule. We don’t normally charge for one more attempted delivery. It’s very rare.
It’s simple , just email us order number. We will refund through the same method as you paid automatically ( credit card / paypal/part pay etc ) . If you paid via a bank transfer we would need a bank account number to return the funds to. Best would be to email the account number in the same email. We refund immediately and send a confirmation email.

Please email us a discriptive email preferably with photos. We will try our best to make it right for you. It might involve a compensation through a store credit or a partial cash refund or a full return and refund. But in any case we won’t stop till you are satisfied and at any time all your rights under CG act are well preserved. The only way we can grow our business is by keeping you satisfied and promoting us to your friends.
Something is definitely wrong. Please email us with order number or purchase details. It might take few hours to solve such a mystery. But it has happened in past mostly due to wrong/email bouncing.
Just like the rest of us , we are not perfect. We endeavour our best to keep you informed and happy but at times we do fail to meet expectations. Being a relatively new field of online furniture selling , there are no benchmarks for service standards. We strive to be better than yesterday. We are a relatively medium scale business and feel pride in maintaining consumer laws and rights. We believe internet to be an open billboard for customers to put their views and reviews on . We don’t reward customers for good reviews nor we expect them to change a review after we correct or fix a problem. We should have got it right the first time and deserve a slap when we don’t. It’s just natural that when people get “ normal “ service ie all done nicely , we don’t get a review for that. This happens 99.9999% times.
It’s the times when we fail to deliver , is when a negative review is put. We learn from these experiences and fix our systems to avoid repeating the same mistakes. But these represent a very tiny portion of our overall trade.
