Terms and Conditions

Shopping with us means you agree with our terms and conditions on warranty, refunds, returns, cancellations, payments, shipping and delivery. Should mubu add or change any terms and conditions, these will be communicated on our website or in written form to our customers should they affect a current order.
Our products are available to purchase via our website and through our workshop located in Cheltenham 3192, 1 Viking Court (by appointment). We are currently working on a brand new showroom space for you, which will be located in Cheltenham under the same roof as our new workshop.
Although we work hard and aim to display all our products in the most accurate way possible on our website, we cannot guarantee any variance to the colours of our products based on the electronic device you are using to view our furniture. All our product descriptions and prices are subject to change at anytime without notice, at our sole discretion. We are cautious in trying to avoid errors in product information and pricing, so we reserve the right to correct them. We also reserve the right to discontinue any product at any time based on demand, supply or any other reason that mubu deems reasonable.
Please note the information contained on this website is intended to apply in Australia only and all our prices are in Australian Dollars.

You must not republish or redistribute material from this website (including republication on another website), sell, rent or sub-license material from our website, reproduce, duplicate, copy or exploit material on this website for a commercial purpose.

At mubu we pride ourselves in selling quality furniture. This is one of the reasons why our business was born, to offer strong and durable goods, that were manufactured with the best quality materials along with design and functionality in mind.
Mubu timber products and upholstery products come with a five year structural warranty, two year warranty on foam and one year on fabric. Whilst mubu have a warranty on all of our products, it does not cover normal wear and tear or damage arising from abnormal use, improper maintenance or modification in any way. All our furniture is exclusively for INDOOR use. Any damage due to weather conditions or inappropriate use, will not be covered by mubu.
Timber and its nature
We pride ourselves in working with solid timber and cherish the fact that timber varies in colour, grain, texture and also size and thickness. With this in mind, we will not replace or provide a refund for any of our items if the features or timber colour do not meet your expectations. We always pick the best pieces of timber to suit your needs and will always strive to meet your expectations while keeping in mind that timber is a natural element with its own characteristics and features. Splits, cracks and cavities naturally happen and sometimes develop. This is the nature of the timber responding to its environment and not a sign of a faulty product. Consequently the latter does not fall under warranty.
Fabric colours may vary slightly from the actual product as there are dye lot changes in material, and we cannot be responsible for these differences. Please note that the fabrics we use for the upholstery of our beds, sofas, ottomans and armchairs by Mubu are not Scotch-guard protected. It is the buyer’s sole responsibility to do so.
Lead times for production of made-to-order items
Your order will be booked into our production schedule from the date it is firmly placed via the payment of a deposit. Upon receiving your order we will provide you with an estimated completion date. Please note our lead time means manufacturing lead time, it excludes shipping to your location and any public holidays during that period of time) We will strive to complete your order within the time frame mentioned with each product (between 6 to 12 weeks depending on items) but this may extend to 10 to 14 weeks during busier times or holiday seasons like Christmas. Delays do not constitute a breach of contract as they are dependent on conditions that are that sometimes out of our control (raw material supplies, machinery etc.) Mubu cannot be held liable for any disruptions. We will always strive to meet our deadlines but will never commit to rushing an order through at the risk of a lower quality output.
Returns and Refunds
All orders of made-to-order items by mubu are non-exchangeable and non refundable.
Given the custom nature of our service, with all our made-to-order furniture we are unable to accept cancellation of an order, an exchange or a refund. If you cancel your order before we have commenced manufacturing your furniture, you will forfeit your deposit (50 per cent). For made-to-order items which we have started manufacturing or for which we have already sourced raw materials and supplies, the cancellation fee will be determined at our discretion, based on the stage of manufacturing we are at. If a cancellation is made when an item is ready and out for delivery, the full amount of the order will be retained and no refund will be made. We appreciate that changes of mind happen and our helpful team will strive to assist you as much as we can. Because of the artisanal nature of our furniture, a lot of raw materials, time, work and dedication is involved in the manufacturing process of our MuBu furniture and we appreciate your understanding of our terms and conditions.
