Purchasing through BambooFloorSA.co.za
Any items purchased from BambooFloorSA.co.za are made pursuant to a shipment contract. The risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.
Should any item shipped by BambooFloorSA.co.za be returned, having not reached its intended destination due to an incomplete or erroneous address or other postage problem, BambooFloorSA.co.za reserves the right to contact the Customer / User to confirm their shipping details, and charge the Customer / User an appropriate amount for postage and handling in order to recoup both the time and physical cost of sending an item multiple times.
