Section One – Sales and Services
1.1 Pickup and Delivery Services
To be eligible for Pickup and Delivery Service, the customer must reside within one of the listed suburbs within the booking system and have achieved a minimum spend of $30 for that pickup order (minimum spend currently waived until 31 st May 2020).
Any rescheduling of pickup or delivery services must take place earlier than one hour before the scheduled time frame.
- If it is between 24 hours to one hour before the scheduled time frame, the responsibility lies with the customer to make contact with us by phone only.
- Anytime earlier than 24 hours before the scheduled time frame, email is an acceptable form of notification.
- Rescheduling delivery within one hour of a scheduled delivery time frame that was previously agreed upon by both the customer and TLC Drycleaners St Lukes will incur a re-delivery fee of $10 (GST incl.).
Cancellation of delivery or pickup will not incur any fees.
The payment, as specified on the invoice, is to be received by TLC Drycleaners St Lukes before delivery of items to the customer.
Should a delivery be made to a customers elected address, and no prior arrangement was made by the customer to reschedule a delivery time, and no individuals were present to receive the delivery, the items will be taken back to the physical store of TLC Drycleaners St Lukes. The customer may then come and collect it at no further cost or a delivery can be rescheduled
with a re-delivery fee of $10 (GST incl.). TLC Drycleaners St Lukes will not leave any item unattended.
TLC Drycleaners St Lukes will make every reasonable effort to adhere to a three-day turnaround service, excluding weekends. However, some items may require more time. In these instances, the customer will be notified at the earliest instance after having the item assessed by us and a delivery time will be agreed upon via email or phone.
Agreement of price and delivery time frame is assumed should a customer not raise any concerns for 24 hours after the invoice is delivered by email. The item will, at this point, be started through the cleaning process with all cleaning charges as stated in the invoice payable by the customer.
TLC Drycleaners St Lukes only accepts responsibility for safekeeping of an item from the moment the item is received by a member of staff until the moment the item is given to an individual at the nominated address. If a customer leaves items for pickup unattended, TLC Drycleaners St Lukes accepts no responsibility for the items’ safety. Likewise, TLC Drycleaners St Lukes will not leave any item unattended on any property, under any circumstances.
1.2 Pricing and payment
Prices may vary depending on
- material of the item;
- length of the item;
- any extra stain treatment required;
- presence of decorations and accessories, for example, beads, sequins, etc
Prices are as indicated on the Website, and are subject to change at any time. Changes will not affect orders which have already been confirmed via an invoice or docket.
Money-Back Guarantee: If the customer is able to provide evidence that another drycleaner has removed the stain without causing further damage to the fabric, TLC Drycleaners St Lukes will refund the amount paid by the customer to clean that particular item. This will require presentation of the item in question, proof of service from another drycleaner (such as a receipt for cleaning that particular item with identifying details) and the original receipt from TLC Drycleaners St Lukes , within two weeks from the day of release of garment to the customer.
1.3 Damage reimbursement
If the customer suspects an item has been damaged during the process of cleaning, this must be brought to the attention of TLC Drycleaners St Lukes within one month after collection from the store or delivery of cleaned items. This is a reasonable time period to allow the customer time to assess their items and avoids mistaking wear and tear or damage from re-wearing as damage from cleaning.
In the event that TLC Drycleaners St Lukes has accepted responsibility of damage to an item during the cleaning process, which has been discussed and agreed upon by both TLC Drycleaners St Lukes and the customer, you must produce evidence of purchase of this item with both the full price labeled and time of purchase labeled clearly, OR produce other alternative evidence of pricing of the same item in order to proceed with damage reimbursement. TLC Drycleaners St Lukes will reimburse the customer:
- the full price of the item if the item has been purchased one year or earlier before today’s date, as determined by the time and price on the evidence of purchase, respectively; or
- half the price of the item if the item has been purchased more than one year before today’s date, as determined by the time and price on the evidence of purchase, respectively.
Any damage that is suspected to have been incurred by TLC Drycleaners St Lukes during the cleaning process will have been deemed so, only under the circumstances that both TLC Drycleaners St Lukes and the customer have discussed and agreed to this conclusion and that both parties were properly communicating through the whole discussion.
All items drycleaned are to be picked up within 3 MONTHS of the drop-off date. We are not responsible for items left at TLC Drycleaners St Lukes after this time
Every effort will be made by TLC Drycleaners St Lukes to remove stains without causing damage to the fabric. If a stain is unable to be removed after reasonable attempts have been made, no refund can be offered unless the Money-Back Guarantee applies (as stated in Section 1.2).
TLC Drycleaners St Lukes are not responsible for losses of or damage done to the item as a result of the following:
- TLC Drycleaners St Lukes were not notified of special cleaning requirements or instructions for the item;
- the item’s label had incorrect cleaning instructions;
- there was previous damage to the item that was noted at time of collection;
- any buttons and shoulderpads. Some buttons and shoulderpads cannot withstand the drycleaning process and it is recommended that the customer removes these before TLC Drycleaners St Lukes collects the item for cleaning;
- additional articles left in or on the item that were obscured, for example, buttons, coins, stationery, etc.;
- additional packaging collected with the item, for example, personal laundry bags, suit bags, etc.;
- having the item cleaned after potential risks had been discussed with the customer, and with the customer’s consent.
