Terms & Conditions

Terms & Conditions:

  1. Our furniture is always pre-loved, primarily antiques, some in original condition, some restored. Over lifetimes of use, each piece has developed its character and patina, which antique lovers expect as an integral aspect of age. Our photos and description are there to help you assess the item for sale, but it is up to you to decide if it is suitable for you. Our items are sold AS-IS, and we, therefore, welcome inspection at our Smeaton Grange showrooms. We are 2 minutes from the Narellan Road exit from the M5, and 5 minutes from the centre of historic Camden. If you cannot inspect in person, please email or telephone with any questions, and if you are not satisfied with the item’s suitability for your purposes, DO NOT BUY IT as returns are not accepted.
  2. Payment must be made at the time of purchase. We accept most major credit cards, bank transfers, and Paypal. Credit card payments may be made by telephone.
  3. No items will be released until payment has been made in full. Title passes upon the collection of the thing from our premises. We accept no responsibility for loss, damage, or delivery failure after collection. All couriers collect from us as the buyer's agent, whether or not we assist in arranging the courier.
  4. Keys and old locks can be fiddly and are easily damaged in transit. They are not guaranteed to work perfectly.
  5. The final sale price includes GST. The supplier is Mitchell Keep Pty Ltd trading as *Because* Antiques & Interiors ABN 91 827 962 097.
  6. All photographs, text, and other original material on this website, including these conditions, are protected by copyright. Infringement will result in immediate legal action.
  7. Listings and descriptions are accurate to the best of our knowledge and belief. All items are available for inspection before purchase, and all sales are to be treated as sales by inspection.
  8. The laws of New South Wales apply to all transactions, and all purchasers agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the Courts of New South Wales.
