Shipments are then delivered by your choice of a select number of delivery companies, and arrive to you in around 1-6 days depending on your location.

The average rate of complaints is about 1% per year. Most often we resolve the claim immediately by refund, credit note, replacement or repair, depending on your choice. Complaints are handled at our store, so the customer must send the products to the showroom along with the purchase receipt. Shipping costs are covered by the customer. It may take up to 30 days for the claim to be processed upon receipt of the goods requested and proof of purchase. Once the complaint is resolved, we ship the products to the customer at our own expense.

We ship the products from our central warehouse in Prague via the UPS shipping service to the delivery address you supply us with, for each order. The actual transfer is handled by UPS and are therefor subject to their terms, beyond our control and responsibility.
Is it possible to get a discount for large orders?
We constantly work on providing the best price for the level of quality we provide, however there is always the possibility of getting a discount for larger orders. We can offer 5% for orders of 2000 EUR and 10% for orders of 4000 EUR. Wholesale customers have other discount conditions, so if you choose to buy directly from them, you should contact them to find out what discounts you can get.
Are the prices in the catalog partner prices?
In the catalog all prices are retail prices incl VAT. The wholesale price can be calculated as follows: deduct VAT from the web/catalog/pricelist prices, and then apply your wholesaler discount. Follow this order of deduction to get the correct price for you. To be invoiced without VAT we need a valid VAT number from you (this doesn't apply to Czech and Swedish registered companies). If we don't have a valid VAT from you, you will be charged Czech or Swedish VAT, based on your location.
How many types of catalog do you have?
We have one catalog covering our entire assortment.
How do you deal with recycling charges?
Recycling charges are mandatory in the whole of the EU. Each state has its own specific rules; in the Czech Republic and Sweden we pay the charges, but in case of exports to other EU countries, the customer pays the charge.
Our standard warranty is 2 years. We can offer longer warranty for certain projects and orders, but then the prices are subject to change. You can contact us in these cases and we can offer you a price depending on the range of products and quantities you require.
Claims / Returns
Claims are handled a bit differently from country to country. However we usually have a return address in each of the countries we are active in.
We offer two types of payments - Bank transfer or credit card. The customer can pay directly when they are placing their order, or by a pay-link sent to them afterwards. We have local bank accounts in some countries, but usually this is not required, since most banks have the same conditions for EU payments, as for local payments. The benefit of card payments is that there is no delay at all, and the order can get shipped if placed before 15:00 CET.
Minimum order quantity / Handling fees for small orders.
There is no minimum order quantity. However, since we are a wholesale company, we do take out a handling fee for small orders, which is different for each country: BG - under 300 BGN fee of 30 BGN ČR - under 3000 Kč fee of 300 Kč EU - under 120 EUR fee of 12 EUR DK - under 800 DKK fee of 80 DKK HR - under 1000 HRK fee of 100 HRK HU - under 30 000 HUF fee of 3 000 HUF CH - under 200 CHF fee of 20 CHF PL - under 500 PLN fee of 50 PLN RO - under 600 RON fee of 60 RON SE - under 800 SEK fee of 100 SEK UK - under 100 GBP fee of 10 GBP

Will the catalogue be delivered with some general information about terms and conditions?
Yes, the catalogue will be accompanied by a letter detailing basic information about us, such as delivery times, freight, discounts, etc.
Why do you send proforma invoiced? Is it possible to get an invoice instead of a proforma?
