SHIPPING & DELIVERY: When you place an Order, we will give you an estimated completion date. When your Order is nearing completion, we will notify you on the estimated shipment date.
We encourage you to count all packages and sign only for the exact number of packages received, and inspect all items for damage prior to signing.

Should you wish to change the shipping address from the address stated in the Order then you must notify Bunakara in writing and have obtained our agreement also in writing to the change in the shipping address prior to any delivery taking place. You also agree that the shipping address stated in the Orders or otherwise provided to Bunakara under the terms of this Agreement is a valid shipping address for your retail business. We will not “drop ship” to your customer(s). Delivery may occur in multiple lots depending upon availability of the products constituting an Order. Items which you prefer we ship together must be noted in writing at the time you place your Order. All orders must go to a business or receiving warehouse because we do not drop-ship to residences.
Time stated in any quotation is a commercial estimate only and, therefore, cannot be guaranteed. Whilst Bunakara will make all efforts to deliver within the estimated delivery time, occasionally deliveries may be affected by factors beyond our control. We shall not be liable for delay in shipment and/or delivery for any cause, nor shall any delay entitle you to cancel any Order after it has been shipped or to refuse delivery, except if it is evidenced that we have caused the delay in shipment and/or delivery by wilful misconduct or gross negligence.
RETURN OF GOODS: Total satisfaction is what we are after. Bunakara stands behind our product and wants you to be fully satisfied with every item you’ve purchased.

Nevertheless, each return requires a Return Merchandise Authorization (“RMA”) number. A RMA can be obtained from Bunakara Customer Service at www.bunakara.com. Please understand that returns received by Bunakara without a RMA number will not be accepted. Returned products must be in or with original packaging and in resalable condition. Bunakara cannot accept a return with any indication that it has been used or handled in such a manner that prevents Bunakara from reselling the product. All return shipping charges must be prepaid. Bunakara will not accept C.O.D deliveries. For your protection, we recommend using UPS or FedEx Ground for your return of textiles and our recommended freight carriers for furniture.

As a general rule, shipping and services costs, Taxes and/or other applicable charges will not be refunded. Shipping costs will only be refunded if the return is a result of a manufacturer error or a shipping error on our part.
