All Zuster furniture is made to order and manufactured to your specific instructions.
To order our furniture you will need to contact one of our staff to receive a quotation with the details of the items you wish to order.
All orders must be received in writing and can be placed by fax on (03) 9427 7288 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you have checked the quotation and are happy with it you will need to confirm your order by payment of a 50% deposit (and by the signing of custom drawings if applicable), which will start production of your order.
Payment of the deposit shall constitute acceptance of our “Terms and Conditions”.
Please ensure that you are satisfied with the quotation, design and timber selection before you confirm your order as no refunds are available if the furniture delivered matches your order confirmation.
We will make every effort in the selection and staining of timber grain to match samples provided, however as timber is a natural product it will vary from board to board and an exact match cannot be guaranteed.
Once your order is near complete you will be contacted to arrange a date and time for delivery of your order.
The balance amount owing is required to be paid in full prior to delivery/collection unless there is an agreement in writing to do otherwise.
Requesting changes to an order, once already confirmed will need to be put forward in writing and is subject to approval and may incur an extra charge.
Cancellation of an order once in production will incur a 50% charge (ie loss of deposit).
Made to measure goods carry a 50% cancellation charge (ie loss of deposit) and if the order is cancelled after production is completed, a 100% cancellation charge applies.
For assistance with your order please contact our sales team at our Melbourne Showroom on (03) 9427 7188 between 9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday.
A 50% deposit is required to begin the creation of your furniture with an average lead time for delivery between 6 and 8 weeks with shorter lead times available on request.
Delivery details and any special requests are required in writing at the time of placing your order with delivery fees quoted at this time.
Any variance to the delivery details may incur additional delivery fees.
Once your furniture is near completion we will contact you to arrange delivery and balance payment of your order.

Zuster furniture is designed for its timeless beauty and quality.
As part of our continued service we would like to offer the following care instructions to ensure your furniture stays looking great well into the future.
Zuster advises the use of a water based cleaning agent.
Some popular cleaning products contain silicone or ammonia; these products are best avoided as they can soften the coating giving it a cloudy appearance over time.
Zuster recommends using the Zuster Clean product.
As manufacturers of contemporary, designer furniture we set out to develop the best cleaning solution for our furniture and have developed a completely natural aromatherapy homecare range that is suitable for all household finishes including timber, laminate, granite or stone, tiles and stainless steel.
Zuster Clean is water based with a selection of pure essential oils.
The essential oils have been chosen for their beautiful aroma and natural antibacterial and antifungal properties.
Zuster Clean can be purchased directly from our Melbourne and Sydney showrooms or online. Please contact us if you would like more information on Zuster Clean.
Zuster furniture is finished with an ultra violet light protector during the spray painting process, which greatly reduces the discolouration that can occur in direct sunlight.
However excessive direct sunlight may cause the timber to deepen over time and we do not recommend placing our furniture in direct sunlight.
Avoid placing hot dishes or coffee cups directly on Zuster furniture.
Hot plates and cups can burn timber surfaces and coffee and tea can also discolour timber.
Zuster advise that you use heat resistant place mats or coasters.
We also advise that coasters and decorator items are periodically moved to avoid shadows.
Zuster furniture should not be positioned over heating or cooling vents, in front of gas, oil or electrical heaters, open fire places or next to hot electrical appliances such as dryers, kettles or washing machines.
All Zuster furniture items are finishes in a superior, hard wearing lacquer system and will take the occasional spill, however excessive moisture left over time may cause damage to the timber.
If you have a household problem of ‘rising damp’ this may also affect your furniture.
Please take care when moving all furniture and avoid any scraping or knocking against walls, floors or fixtures.
We suggest that you never move furniture alone and bend the knees when lifting.
When lifting our beds <>do not lift from the side rails as they could come apart from the bedhead and the foot.
It is always advised to lift furniture as close to the corners as possible.
We would like to thank you for choosing Zuster furniture. If you have any further queries regarding the care of your furniture please contact us.
At Zuster we take pride in the quality craftsmanship we put into all of our furniture with every item manufactured by us being created to last.
To help your Zuster furniture maintain its beauty please review our care instructions.
If you do have an issue with your furniture and it requires repairing please contact us for an initial assessment.
We may ask for photographs to assist in our determining the best course of action, which may include our advice for a DYI repair, sending you items to repair your furniture, an on-site visit or returning your furniture to us for repair.
Once we have fully assessed the repair requirements we will notify you if your repair is covered under our five (5) year warranty or will inform you of any cost.
