For local delivery methods within the 30km, 80km and 160km zones from our workshop in Bayswater VIC Castle and Cubby may engage the services of a range of suppliers to complete this delivery including local delivery contractors, freight and removalist companies. Castle and Cubby will accept responsibility for any lost or damaged goods in freight up until the point of delivery and not including any contact or assistance from you as the client.
Castle and Cubby will not be held accountable for late deliveries or loss or damage relating to late deliveries. In the event that multiple items are ordered, part deliveries may be made where the stock is not available. By agreeing to our terms and conditions you acknowledge all information set forth under our shipping pages.

It is your responsibility as the purchaser to provide the correct and honest details for delivery prior to your goods leaving our workshop. Castle and Cubby cannot be held responsible for any issues with delivery or any additional costs that are incurred during the delivery process where your instructions are not clear, honest or detailed. Any additional costs that may be incurred due to incorrect details provided for delivery will be solely your responsibility.
Deliveries conducted by freight companies including TNT & Startrack will only deliver goods to the closest point of delivery for the truck. The responsibility for moving the goods inside or to the position of the location of the goods is solely your responsibility. Deliveries conducted by a removalist company will ‘likely’ deliver the goods into the position that has been specified and within our reasonable conditions, which includes within 30m of the truck drop off point and on ground level. For further distances and upstairs additional costs may/will be incurred.
Castle and Cubby cannot guarantee a specific delivery service and therefore cannot guarantee that goods will be moved into position.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have checked the goods on arrival, that on inspection the goods are in acceptable condition, that the right quantity and quality of items has arrived. If you have any concerns about the quantity or quality you MUST contact us immediately to rectify the problems prior to the contractor leaving the premises.

Castle and Cubby act as a middleman between our workshop, freight contractors and a network of qualified installers to provide an installation service. Castle and Cubby engage and induct a range of external contractors at varying levels of flat pack installer, handyman and qualified carpenters to complete the installation of the client’s products. We choose the appropriate contractors based on the level of expertise required for our product and the description of the delivery access, location specifications such as position, ground preparation, obstructions etc and finished product that the client has specified. It is the client’s responsibility to properly prepare the area for the installation of goods. Preparation includes but is not limited to levelling the ground to flat, ensuring a well drained surface of at least 10cm of crushed rock, decking, or an existing concreted surface, removing any obstructions such as tree branches, garden bed edges, overhanging items, underground tree roots, removing furniture or fittings that may obstruct the access. Our installation costs are based on easy unobstructed access where the groundwork has been completed. Any additional costs associated with the time and/or materials required to ensure our product is installed to our standards, will be communicated with the client prior to commencement and ultimately incurred by the client.
It is the client’s responsibility to inform the installer on arrival of the position of the goods to be built and to check the goods have been installed correctly, that there are no errors in the build, that there are no areas of concern such as protruding fixings, scratched paint, balanced flooring, and if there are any issues that these are noted in person to the installer prior to the them leaving the premises, or directly to Castle and Cubby prior to them leaving the premises. Castle and Cubby do not accept responsibility for any mistakes made, or additional costs in the installation process that were avoidable by the client by being onsite, overseeing the installation and signing off on the job at the end of the installation process. Where a client is not able to be onsite for the installation Castle and Cubby will be responsible for any issues that occur due to mistakes made by the installer.
