Special Order & Deposit: Merchandise not in stock, ordered specifically for our customer constitutes a special order. All special orders require a 50% deposit unless financing with Synchrony which requires a 10% deposit at the time of placing the order. Lead times on special orders are Tema’s best estimate and reflect when merchandise is expected to arrive at Tema’s warehouse. An ETA should be printed on the sale. Tema is not responsible for delays beyond our control. Cancellations of special orders are allowed within 48 hours of entering the sale. After 48 hours a 25% restocking fee may be assessed if we are unable to cancel the order with the manufacturer. For special orders with 2+ pieces attached to make one unit (e.g. a sectional) a drawing is required, which we ask the customer to initial to ensure accurate ordering.
