Returns Policy

Have you changed your mind?

Here at The Block Shop we represent a number of boutique stores from around the country.  As your goods are coming from different stores, we ask that you choose carefully as returning goods can be costly and time consuming for both you and our retailers.

We do however want to make online shopping as easy and risk free as possible. Therefore if for any reason you are not happy with your purchase, we are happy to accept a return or exchange within 14 days of receipt. Please note however we cannot accept returns for made to orders goods eg artworks and custom made furnishings.

If you change your mind on your purchase and decide to return your goods, you will be given the option of either a store credit or an exchange with the retailer you purchased your goods.

If you opt for a store credit, you will be given a credit to the same value once the item has been returned to the retailer in its original condition and packaging. Any shipping costs incurred will not be refunded and the cost of returning the goods will be paid for by you. We recommend using a trackable or signed-for delivery service such as registered post, as we cannot provide a store-credit until the item has been received.

If you decide on an exchange you can only exchange your purchase for another item from the same retailer of the same or lower value than your original purchase. Please contact info@theblockshop.com.au for the retailer’s address details and you will need to include a stamped, self-addressed post pack with your return for the retailer to post the exchange item.

Please note: The Block Shop does its best to ensure that the images on the site accurately portray the correct colour of its products.  Unfortunately however colours may sometimes appear differntly, depending on the screen or settings that the product is being viewed. This not a product error and will be considered a change of mind.

Is your purchase faulty or damaged?

When your item arrives it is your responsibility to open your package and check for any damage in case the journey has been a bumpy ride. Any damage needs to be reported within 7 days of receipt.

We also ask that you keep all packaging in case you need to make a return - we cannot accept a return without the original packaging.
