We delivery locally (Gauteng & Cape Town), with our own fleet of delivery vehicles.
Local Deliveries will be charged at the current standard delivery fee.
Should you order just 1 unit of a single product or a single length, a surcharge of R 40.00 will apply on delivery. Adding just 1 unit of any other/same product will remove the surcharge from the invoice.
Products are safely packaged for courier delivery and then dispatched to the courier company.
You can send your own courier for collection, or you can request that we book a collection for you at the courier company currently being used by us. Should you choose the latter, the courier price is quoted before a courier is booked. Once the order has been dispatched, we have no control, neither do we take any responsibility for the delivery delays and/or damage caused to the products during transit.
Due to major damages pertaining to the delivery of packaged matboards, the minimum matboard order must be 5 boards or more. This increases the stability of the packaging for the matboards, allowing for less damaged boards when they are being couriered. Matboards orders less than 5 will be subject to a boxing charge of R40.
COLOUR & PROFILE VARIATIONS
Although we try our best to finish our wooden mouldings to the exact colour of the original sample, acceptable colour variations does occur from one batch to another.
On our synthetic mouldings, acceptable colour variations also occur from time to time. This is due to the specific foil that is being used on the profile. Should the foil supplier no longer supply the exact foil needed, an acceptable alternative is chosen.
Due to the nature of natural wood and the minor variations in profile cutters after sharpening, acceptable levels of profile variances does sometimes occur. We try our very best to ensure that these variations does not get out of control.
NATURAL WOOD MOULDINGS “NATURALS”
NATURAL WOOD MOULDINGS are machined from raw kiln dried planks imported from different countries around the world. Inherent to the natural nature of any wood there are always some degree of natural blue stain, pin holes, knots, colour variation and small flaws present.
Any moulding ordered as a NATURAL MOULDING has NOT been sanded, stained or manipulated in any way whatsoever by Serame Mouldings.
When a framer orders a NATURAL MOULDING it is assumed that they will sand, stain or paint the frame afterwards or else a finished moulding would have been ordered.
When our factory finishes mouldings we have different ways of hiding small flaws or holes to prepare a moulding for stain or paint. There is almost never a moulding that is perfect and ready for finishing, and there is always some degree of sanding and prepping that takes place.
