For Buildings/ Offices/ Condominiums/ Complex deliveries:
Permits to access – Client must secure the needed permits to access the location. Our delivery crew will have no information on how to secure these permits. If needed permits were not prepared prior to delivery, this will cause delays and delivery crew may cancel the delivery schedule in consideration of the other scheduled deliveries.
Allowed delivery time – Certain locations have restrictions on the delivery schedule. If this was not advised in advance by the client, delivery crew may cancel delivery schedule to avoid delays.
Service elevator – It is important to know the size/dimensions of the service elevator to assess if the item/s for delivery will fit. We do not deliver items using stairs as this may cause damage to the items and for safety consideration of the delivery crew. Unusual delivery methods such as manually lifting large items using stairs up to several floors, using harness to lift the items or forcing delivery crew to use any unsafe means to transfer the items are prohibited. Delivery crew may cancel the schedule should the client insist on unsafe delivery means. Client may source a third party delivery crew should the terms above are not favorable to said client. Archipelago Home and its delivery crew will not be held liable for any damages incurred or any accident that may arise from the incident.

Subdivision and village entrance fees, and other delivery fees are not included in the sales booking. They must be paid by the client upon delivery.
Receiving Delivery : Only the client should receive the items on the scheduled delivery date. Should the delivery be received by a third party or an authorized representative, an endorsement letter from the client is required to receive the items. The endorsement letter will be used together with the delivery receipt for verification of the delivery crew. Archipelago Home requires clients or their representative to sign the delivery receipt. A signed delivery receipt is a confirmation that item has been “Received in Good Order and Condition”. Delivery crew may cancel deliveries due to the unavailability of the receiver. Rescheduling of delivery is subject to delivery charges.
Delivery Returns : Although items are being quality checked in the factory, items may be damaged due to handling so client must ensure that all items received should be in good condition and has passed a personal quality check by said client. While these instances are rare, clients have the right to reject the items with a formal letter to management indicating the specifics. Returned items will be assessed in the main office for corrective actions.
