Terms & Conditions of Sale
These terms and conditions of sale are provided by Close Comfort International Pte Ltd (Registration No. 201527973E) trading as “Close Comfort Singapore”.
1. Stock Availability
Subject to stock availability. We try to maintain accurate stock counts on our website but from time-to-time there may be a stock discrepancy.
If we are unable to provide all your items at time of purchase, we will contact you to ask whether you would prefer to wait for new stock to be available or a refund.
We can ship your products to any location within Singapore. For deliveries to other territories, please enquire here with your details and requirements.
Normally your products will arrive at your delivery location between 2 and 3 days following your order. Delivery to some locations might take longer depending on extenuating circumstances outside our control, such as government mandated lockdowns.
Our warehouse operates Monday – Friday during standard business hours, except on national holidays.
Upon dispatch we will send you a consignment number and URL link which enables you to follow the progress of your shipment based on the latest updates by our shipping provider.
2.1 Shipping Cost
*The cost of shipping each air conditioner or tent within Singapore is included with the retail price. For other accessories under $98 in value we will charge the applicable shipping cost, usually $10 for smaller accessories.
We calculate any additional shipping cost during check-out based on weight, dimensions and delivery location. If additional payment is needed it will be added to the purchase price when you check out. This includes orders for countries outside Singapore. Please note these orders may incur customs charges from your destination country over and above the calculated product and shipping cost quoted on our website.
*Shipping costs within Singapore, as designated by our delivery agents at the time of purchase, will not be added to the purchase price of our units and select accessories, as deemed appropriate by Close Comfort Pte Ltd. For all customers located outside of these allocated delivery areas, shipping costs will be calculated and applied over and above the retail price of the unit or accessory.
Where shipping charges do need to be applied during check-out, this additional cost will be based on weight, dimensions and delivery location.

If you wish to change the delivery address, please contact us before 1pm on the day you placed your order. If you placed the order after 1pm, you must contact us before 1pm the next business day.
