If you are, for example, from the EU area and attempt to send an order through the USA web store, we may reroute your order to the right location, and propose the correct product and price to you for your acceptance. For orders from customers outside of these areas we reserve the right to choose where best to serve you from, and seek your acceptance for this decision.

If you choose to do assembly and/or installation yourself, you must read and follow the assembly instructions carefully, use proper tools and wear protective gear.

Saunastore is not in any way liable or responsible for knowing or notifying you of these. Saunastore does not warrant that the product installation in your area does not need applicable permits. All electrical connections and wirings must be made by a certified electrician or your warranty will be considered null and void.

Following our receipt of your completed electronic order and payment, you will receive an automatic confirmation for your order to your email. If we cannot, for any reason, accept and process your order, we will notify you accordingly. We reserve the right to reject any order, as we see fit, without giving any reason.

We will process all orders within 1 to 4 days from receipt. You are always welcome to contact us regarding the availability of merchandise or regarding the current status of your order.

ORDER CHANGES AND CANCELLATIONS

You may cancel your order within 7 days beginning on the day after you receive the goods from us. If you wish to cancel, please send an email with the Return form filled to us. However products that are specifically made to order can not be cancelled. For example all our pre-fabricated saunas are exclusively made to customer order, and could not be sold to another customer without significant expense.

If you exercise your right to cancel, you must return any items that have already been delivered to you within 7 days after you cancel your order, and then we will refund the price you have paid. If the product is small enough to be returned by mail, then we will refund your mailing cost for such returns according to the lowest available price option. Freight cost for any large items, such as sauna heaters or heater rocks, will not be refunded.

Any products you return must be unused. We reserve the right to inspect the products upon arrival. Your exclusive and sole remedy is a refund of the price paid.

In all cases contact us before sending a product to us in order to agree the shipping method, the location to ship to, and please fill out a Return form , send a copy to us via email, and print a copy to be attached with the product to be returned.

However, Saunastore does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of this site is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. You may contact our sales staff to obtain the latest product information or specifications. The products may have a certain size or weight tolerance, thus the actual product sizes or weights may not be exactly as indicated or listed.

The prices, delivery charges and product availability are published on this website. The price and delivery charges payable are those in force at the date and time you send your order to us. We may change our published prices at any time.

Saunastore sells products from various manufacturers, some of which may change their product pricing without notice. Many of the products we do not carry in stock, but order from manufacturer after receiving your order to us. In the case the manufacturer is repricing without notice and our price has become obsolete, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.

Our prices and charges are without taxes or duties or customs costs, where applicable.

If your order is to be delivered to an address outside the USA you may have to pay import duties and taxes such as VAT to your customs. Please contact your local customs authorities for details on importing to your country.

Prices published on our website do not include freight costs unless otherwise indicated.

If there are any changes requested to the order before it has shipped, the price applied to those changes will be according the listed prices valid at that moment. Electronics products (for example heaters) prices include any recycling fee required by law.

You undertake and warrant that all details you provide to us when you place your order will be correct, that any credit or debit card you use belongs to you, and that there are sufficient funds or credit facilities to cover the price of the items you order and our delivery charges.

Payments are handled by either a merchant service provider to Saunastore, where Saunastore collects your credit card information and makes the charge through the Merchant Service, or PayPal.

You can pay through bank transfer. If you order with prepayment through bank transfer, we shall send you an invoice via email and wait for your payment for 5 business days, after which time the order is cancelled.

We will process your order and ship the products once we have received your payment to our bank account.


DELIVERY TERMS

The indicated delivery times are best estimates based on information from the manufacturers or importers. We may update the estimated lead times on our web pages at any time. There may be variance on the actual delivery time with the time frame indicated, as many of the products are made to order, and various factors may delay delivery, such as temporary material shortage, capacity constraints, strikes and other labor actions, vacation and holiday periods or force majeure incidents. Also third parties such as freight companies may cause shipments to delay from planned. Saunastore is not liable for any costs or claims araising due to a third party.

However if we fail to deliver within 30 days of the confirmed delivery date without rescheduling, you may cancel your order by contacting us.

Certain products are made to order, and thus have a longer delivery time, compared to products warehoused and ready to be shipped. Products in your order may be partially shipped, according to their respective lead times. If a certain item in your order is holding back the planned delivery, you may request for or we may propose to you partial shipment, and separate shipment of the late item once it is ready for shipment, by you paying for the extra shipping cost.

Shipping time will vary depending on the shipping method and the shipping distance.

Saunastore can not be held liable or responsible for any delays caused by any Customs or other government agency.

Your shipping address must be accessible by a delivery truck. You must be present to take the delivery, and be prepared to carry out the off-loading process. The truck drivers are generally not responsible for off-loading but may offer their assistance.

In the unlikely event of shipping damage, you must obtain a written statement from the delivery truck driver explaining the extent of the damage. Report any shipping damages to Saunastore sales staff immediately but no later than 3 days from delivery and explain the extent of the damage. Please send digital pictures of the damage if possible.

We will be glad to send replacement parts free of charge for any pieces that have been documented to have received shipment damage which has made the parts unusable. Claims of defective products and requests for replacements and any material shortage claims must be made to Saunastore within 7 days of delivery.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

We will not sell products made from endangered woods or illegal logging. As a company we feel it is our responsibility to require the highest ethical standards from our manufacturers. Our customers can feel secure that our products have not harmed or destroyed our fragile nature.

Our products are made from the finest materials. Only pre-screened and selected materials are used to make the high quality products that you expect us to deliver. High quality of the products we sell is very important to us. Our quality pledge: We strive to bring you a product that you can be proud of and enjoy for a very long time forward.

CLAIMS

We strive to resolve any claims expediently and to seek a result that satisfies you, our valued customer. We handle only claims made in written format have the filled out claims/return form attached. Saunastore will not pay for any of your costs related to the claims process, and the Saunastore maximum liability is limited to the price of the product.

WARRANTY POLICY

We retain the right to inspect and verify the defaults you declare to exist in the product. We may consult the manufacturer or a third party expert, and therefore the process may take some time, depending on the nature of the fault.

Depending on the nature of the fault, we retain the right to supply to you replacement parts instead of replacing the whole product. For example if a plank of wood in a sauna is damaged, we will send you a new piece instead of a whole sauna. We may request you to return the damaged part to us. If a product is sent to us under warranty for repair, but no fault is found, we retain the right to charge the direct expenses from you, including shipping and packing costs and inspection costs. Any products not under warranty returned for service or repair, will be charged the service cost and shipping cost based on actual experienced costs.

Certain products require professional expertise to be installed. If a product has been damaged due to improper installation or handling, the warranty does not cover those damages. Generally unless specifically instructed by us, any dismantling or modification of a product voids the warranty.

Your sole remedy is a refund.
