We have gone to great lengths to illustrate our products, but each image should be viewed in conjunction with the descriptive text and will, of course, be limited by the screen settings of your own monitor screen. If an exact colour match is vital, we recommend you order a sample swatch or contact us.

Payment
We ask for payment in advance of delivery. This can be by credit/debit card, via our secure shopping system or EFT for South African customers. If you are shopping from outside South Africa, your card company will convert the transaction into your own currency. We accept all major credit cards Diners, American Express, MasterCard and Visa,

After you send your order you will receive a copy by email, please print or keep this copy for your own records. This does not mean we have accepted your order. Once your credit has been approved, the receiving address has been verified, and the item has been located, your order will be accepted.

All prices shown are in R (Rands) and are inclusive of SA VAT of 14%. If you would prefer to pay by cheque, cash or bank transfer, please contact us at head office as we can only accept your order by telephone or mail or by prior arrangement. (0214236882)

Online security
All credit card transactions are performed on our site by PayGate, who provide secure online credit card and debit card payment solutions for thousands of online and mail order businesses across SA. They have grown to become one of the largest independent Payment Service Providers in the country because they make sure that your transaction details are kept secure throughout the transaction process.

On placing an order at our checkout, our secure server safely encrypts all of your details making it impossible for any of your personal data to be transmitted from your computer and be intercepted by others. PayGate will then take your credit/debit card details and validate them. You will then leave the secure section and be returned back to our website to finish the transaction. No credit card details are kept on the Home Focus website.

Shipping, delivery and postage and packing
All relevant postage and packing, shipping or delivery charges will be highlighted on your order. The goods you order will be delivered to the address you give when you place your order. We aim to dispatch all orders within 14 days of the item being in stock but please allow up to 28 days. During busy times or for made-to-order orders this time frame may increase. A working day is any day other than weekends or public holidays. If delivery cannot be made to your address for reasons under homefocus.co.za’s control, we will inform you as soon as possible.

If you deliberately fail to take delivery of the order (otherwise than by reason of circumstances under the control of homefocus.co.za), without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to homefocus.co.za, homefocus.co.za may
a) store the items in the order until actual delivery and charge you for reasonable costs (including insurance) of storage; or
b) sell the items in the order at the best readily obtainable price and (after deducting all reasonable storage and selling expenses) account to you for any excess over the price you agreed to pay for the items or charge you for any shortfall below the price you agreed to pay for the items.

If you fail to take delivery because you have cancelled your contract under our Distance Selling Regulations below, homefocus.co.za shall refund or re-credit you within 30 days for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit card for the order, less any expenses incurred for failed delivery.

Every effort will be made to deliver the goods as soon as possible after your order has been accepted. However, homefocus.co.za will not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by you through reasonable or unavoidable delay in delivery. In this case, homefocus.co.za will inform you as soon as possible.

If a carrier is used, upon receipt of your order you will be asked to sign for the items received in good condition. If you are unable to check the contents of the package at that moment in time please sign for the delivery as "UNCHECKED". Failure to do so may affect any claim for replacement or refund that you make thereafter.

Your Right of Cancellation (Distance Selling Regulations)
You have the right to cancel the contract at any time up to the end of 7 working days after you receive your order (see below). To exercise your right of cancellation, you must give written notice to homefocus.co.za by letter, fax or email, giving details of the items ordered and (where appropriate) their delivery. Notification by phone is not sufficient.

If you exercise your right of cancellation after the items have been delivered to you, you will be responsible for returning them to homefocus.co.za at your own cost. The items must be returned to our nominated warehouse in Cape Town, South Africa.

You must take reasonable care to ensure the items are not damaged in the meantime or in transit.

Once you have notified homefocus.co.za that you are cancelling the contract, homefocus.co.za will refund or re-credit you within 30 days for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit card for the items. If you do not return the goods as required, homefocus.co.za may charge you a sum not exceeding the direct costs of recovering the items.

Returns and refunds
If we make a mistake with your order, or if the goods received are in some way faulty, we have a no questions asked returns policy. Simply return the item and we will replace it with the correct one. We will pay your return delivery costs.

If you change your mind for any other reason, we are happy to exchange items, refund or credit your account, provided the goods are returned to us within 7 working days of their receipt, in the original packaging and in a saleable condition. We regret, however, that we cannot refund return postage costs.

Out of stock items
Sometimes, items are for a variety of reasons temporarily unavailable. We try to alert you to this fact on the website, but just occasionally, demand exceeds supply. If a product you have ordered is out of stock at our suppliers, we tell you about the problem, dispatch the rest of your order as normal, and place the out of stock item on back order. We try to estimate when new stocks will arrive and always give you the option of cancelling either the whole order or simply the out of stock item, if you would prefer not to wait. The out of stock item will be forwarded to you immediately it becomes available.

V.A.T. (Value Added Tax)
All prices on this website include a South African VAT tax of 14% . If you live outside the SADC this tax will be deducted from your order at checkout. Please note that to be eligible for a VAT reduction, we need to deliver to an address outside the SADC.

Limitation of Liability
homefocus.co.za ‘s total liability in contract, tort (including negligence or breach of statutory duty), misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise, arising in connection with the performance or contemplated performance of this agreement shall be limited to the price paid for the goods.

If you are a business customer homefocus.co.za shall not be liable to you for any indirect or consequential loss or damage (whether for loss of profit, loss of business, depletion of goodwill or otherwise), costs, expenses or other claims for consequential compensation whatsoever (howsoever caused) which arise out of or in connection with this agreement.
