Terms and Conditions

The following terms and conditions of contract shall apply to all the products and services of our company.

1. How to place an order

You can also send us your order via fax at +49 (23 09) 93 98 50 or use the enclosed order forms. These contractual terms apply when ordering by phone, in writing or on the Internet.

2. Minimum Order Value

Please note the minimum order value of €25.00. We cannot process orders of lesser value in a cost-effective manner.

3. Prices

The prices are final prices including the value added tax prescribed by law. Distance sales in the EU are generally subject to taxation of turnover in the country of purchase. However, if the consignor exceeds certain delivery quotas, value added tax must be paid in the country in which the buyer is located (destination principle of taxation). This applies if the buyer is a private individual. Manufactum has exceeded the delivery quota in several countries and therefore indicates the customary value added tax and pays said tax directly to the tax authorities of the country. For deliveries in EU countries, in which the delivery quota is not exceeded, the value added tax effective in Germany, currently 19% resp. reduced 7%, is charged and paid in Germany. For orders from non-EU countries, we reduce our prices by the included German value added tax. However, you will have to pay the respective customary import turnover tax at your customs authority. We cannot provide you with information regarding the collection of customs duty. You will receive a declaration of origin from us, which is printed on the invoice.

4. Shipping charges

Please observe that outside the EU a different delivery address may not be in any other country than the one stated in the billing address. Unfortunately, the delivery of plants and seeds abroad is not permitted. We charge the actual costs of postage for shipments abroad – these are shown to you before completing the order. Deliveries are usually made via DHL to your postal address. Poste restante deliveries are not possible. Please contact the Manufactum customer service telephone: +49 (23 09) 93 90 95 for the delivery of furniture or bulky goods.

5. Delivery

Unless otherwise indicated on the product, delivery is made by parcel service. The handling of furniture and bulky goods on location to the customer’s point of use must be possible with two persons at the most, based on the local characteristics according to the dimensions and properties of the merchandise. Should hindrances in delivery (e.g. too narrow stairway) require the use of additional personnel and/or technical aid or the like, this special service is charged according to actual costs according to prior agreement. Please indicate possible hindrances when placing your order. Please observe that a different delivery address cannot be in any other country than the billing address.
