ECOCAPSULE

The Ecocapsule is an opportunity for an eco-life. It does not need to be plugged into the traditional power and water supply as it is self-sustaining and can generate both resources from the surrounding environment.

Officially, the Ecocapsule is a compact mobile home which can enable off-grid living under specific conditions and in specific environments. Legal note: the Ecocapsule is designed for medium term off-grid living* for 1 – 2 people

Delivery Information

We strive to deliver your purchase with superior customer service and flexibility each and every time. We offer two types of delivery determined by the products you order.

Small / medium parcel – small items (eg. bed linen, cushions) will be delivered by Australia Post or our freight partner. All orders must be signed for on delivery; if no one is available to sign for the delivery, a card outlining alternative arrangements will be left.

White glove delivery service – most of our larger items will be delivered inside your home by white glove delivery service where we’ll carefully unpack, inspect, assemble and place the item in the room of your choice. We’ll also remove all packaging materials when we leave allowing you to enjoy your new piece of furniture sooner.

A representative from our client services team will contact you to arrange your delivery. We ask that you or an authorised representative be home for your delivery and provide a signature upon receipt.

Important notice RE: Customs Fees
Some countries (UK, the E.U., and Canada in particular) charge Customs fees or import duties on merchandise ordered from overseas. Please be aware that these charges are the customer’s responsibility and are beyond our control. We advise that you contact the relevant government body in your country (e.g. Customs & Excise) for information on what these charges might be.

By law, we have to declare the status (i.e. “merchandise” or “gift”) and the value of each parcel accurately. It is a criminal offence for us to make a false Customs declaration, and we are unable to misrepresent your goods for the reduction of import duties/tax fees.

Returns & Exchange
We offer exchanges within 14 days of purchase.  Contact us with your exchange details including tracking number and we will contact you within 24 hours. We do not accept returns, however faulty or damaged goods will be replaced or refunded. Your replacement or refund is subject to you returning the original product. If a refund is required, it will be provided via whichever form of payment used in the original transaction.

We require a signature for any goods delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased goods passes to you. If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes (for example as a gift) then you accept that evidence of a signature by them (or at that delivery address) is evidence of delivery and fulfillment by ECOHOUZ and transfer of responsibility in the same way.
