We try to ensure that all product, sizing and information is represented as accurately as possible. We cannot guarantee that colours will be displayed accurately on your computer screen as monitors can vary. We undertake reasonable care to ensure all information on our website is as up to date as possible. We reserve the right to refuse orders where product information has been mis-represented.
Sizing guidelines are supplied to assist you in completing your order. Please take the time to measure your child, or an item of their clothing, to ensure you are purchasing the correct size. Please note that the guidelines are subject to slight factory variations and are a guideline only. In some cases, sample garments will also be available at your school office for trying on. If you need further assistance or have any questions regarding sizing specifications, please contact us.
At The School Uniform Company we do our utmost to ensure that contracted garments are always available. However occasionally, due to circumstances beyond our control, we may run out of a garment for a brief time. If any garment is temporarily unavailable, you will be advised accordingly.
You are responsible for taking all reasonable precautions to ensure that the information you register on this website is not made available to a third party who may misuse or abuse the information.
All orders are shipped to a physical address (NZ only). We use a courier company so we are unable to deliver to a PO Box address. Unless otherwise agreed, you are responsible for the delivery cost and any rural deliveries shall be subject to additional charges. All deliveries are full track and trace, and a signature is required upon delivery. If the delivery address is unattended, a calling card shall be left by the driver for you to make contact with the courier company and finalise delivery. If special delivery instructions are required, please be sure to notify us when you are placing your order. We endeavour to have your order delivered within 2-5 days from placement and full payment of order. We cannot be responsible for delivery delays due to causes beyond our control.
Garment(s) should only be returned if you have ordered the wrong size garment or if there is a problem with the garment. We do our best to ensure that all garments sent out are free of imperfections. However, we accept that occasionally, a garment may have minor issues that need addressing. Under the Consumer Guarantees Act, if a garment has a flaw that can be repaired or remedied, we will do so. If not, the garment will be replaced or refunded.
If you have an issue or a garment to return, it helps us greatly if you contact us first to make arrangements. To return your order it must be accompanied by a copy of the original order or invoice.
