How much are your screens / sculptures / light feature panels? Do you have a pricing catalogue / brochure?

Lump Sculpture Studio fabricates all works on a “made to order” basis.  You can find pricing guides to most of our standard items such as sculptures, screens and planters by clicking “prices and sizes” under the main image of the item you are looking at.

Alternatively, email us at info@lump.com.au with your questions and our friendly Lump Crew will be happy to provide you with an individual quote.  Remember, the more information you can provide us about your project, the more information we can provide you and the more tailored your quote will be.

Will a Lump designer visit my home / site to consult and measure up my project?

Not everyone is confident they can get the measurements right. If you don’t have a handy person or any trades / landscapers on site that can help, we will send a Lump designer to your home / site for a consultation and measure up.

Each on site consultation and measure up provided by a Lump designer incurs a cost of $176 inc GST (Melbourne Metro only).  This fee is payable upfront prior to our designer visiting your premises.  Destinations outside Melbourne Metro incur additional costs.

Call Lump on 03 9489 4766 or email info@lump.com.au to discuss your site and what is involved in your project.

Will you deliver to my home / site? How much does it cost?

Melbourne Metro? YES!
Interstate? YES!
Rural Australia? YES!
International Sea & Air Freight? YES!

The cost of delivery is calculated on a project by project basis and please note, if you have purchased a large or heavy item or multiple items, the basic delivery fees may not apply.

Basic delivery costs for Melbourne Metro deliveries begin at $88 inc GST.

Basic delivery costs for Interstate deliveries begin at $330 inc GST.

All international deliveries are quoted on an individual basis.

The cost of delivery is calculated on the size of your chosen Lump items and the delivery destination. We schedule deliveries weekly to all Melbourne Metro areas and all states Australia wide. Air freight and standard shipping by Sea Freight is also available on a case by case basis for all International destinations.

Most items will arrive on a pallet sized 1200 wide x 2400 long x 150mm high or possibly larger for bigger scale works.

It is important for us to know as much about the delivery destination as possible. We encourage you to let us know if there are any special circumstances or instructions that will either obstruct or assist in a smooth delivery.

Some questions we may ask you in relation to your delivery circumstances are:

Will you be available to receive the delivery on a selected date?
Are there any limitations with access to the delivery site?
Do you have access to lifting equipment or trades people to assist on site?
Do you require the driver to assist with unloading?

All of the works created at Lump Sculpture Studio are large and unusual and we use specifically selected and trusted carriers to safely complete all Lump Studio Melbourne Metro and interstate deliveries.

We understand you may prefer to organise delivery or collection yourself. Please note Lump Sculpture Studio will not be liable for any goods damaged as a result of poor delivery and handling practices. (handling fees apply)

When your item is ready to be assigned to freight, we will contact you and organise a convenient date for delivery. The freight company will have multiple deliveries that day; we appreciate your understanding if we are not able to provide you with an exact delivery time. However, we will do all we can to minimise the time you spend waiting to receive the delivery.

Please ensure you have a representative on site to accept delivery and to help unload. Under no circumstances will items be left at an address unattended. If lifting equipment is required to aid in receiving your delivery please make sure this is organised and onsite to receive the delivery.

Lump will export CIF (Cost, insurance and freight) only to your closest port.

We advise all of our clients to inspect each piece immediately on receipt of the delivery.  Please only sign the acceptance form provided by the transport company after inspection and only if you are 100 % sure that your items are all in good order and condition. Signing the paper work on receipt of your delivery before inspecting the items voids the insurance. 

Will Lump provide installation? Can I install the Lump pieces myself?

Lump Sculpture Studio offers on site installation.

Installation costs begin at $880 including GST.

The fees outlined are subject to site conditions, engineering and variations and are payable prior to the items being released for dispatch. Variations incurred during the installation process are payable immediately on completion of installation.

A formal estimate for delivery and installation will be provided and must be accepted in writing prior to the items being released for dispatch.

Exclusions: Please note that footings are not included in fee proposals.

Estimated installation charges are payable prior to the items being released for dispatch.  All installation projects are recalculated on completion, any charges exceeding the estimate will be invoiced and payable immediately.  Refunds will be awarded to any installations that have been over estimated beyond the minimum charges.

The more information we have prior to installation, the smoother the process will be.  Photos are great, as are drawings and detailed information about any site access issues or restrictions.

Most basic fixings can be colour matched and supplied with your item. Please note that some fixings may incur additional costs.

How do I fix my screens? Can they be free standing?

What is a standard screens size? And what materials are available?

At Lump we make our screens primarily but not limited to aluminium, Corten steel and Stainless steel.

Please see a detailed list of sizes and prices here.

What finishes are available?

Powder coat:

Powder coating is a fabulous way to customise a Lump sculpture, screen or light feature. Lump uses only the best quality Dulux powders that are UV stable and guaranteed to last if applied by a registered applicator. Pick up a colour that is already in your home or garden or provide a real splash of colour for contrast.

Lump’s Faux finishes:

Lump’s faux finishes are developed here in our Melbourne Studio. Our Lump Faux finishes are stable and will not leach a stain or produce a dust. And best of all the Lump Faux finishes will retain the integrity of the metal beneath.
Please see ‘Finishes’ for all the different paint finishes we currently have available.
Lump sculpture studio also has the capability to produce customised finishes for your project. Get in contact with us at info@lump.com.au and our paint master may be able to replicate or mix new colours for your project.

Natural rust finish:

The natural rusted finish is REAL rust and will leach a stain when it becomes wet. The rusted finish will continue to grow and develop in colour this may result in lighter or darker patterns in the rust depending on the weather it receives. Please consider this when thinking about your application especially if you are planning on having a Lump piece on or near pale coloured walls or tiles.  
You can read more about Corten steel here: https://cortensculpture.blogspot.com.au/2014/01/dont-be-fooled-rust-never-sleeps.html

Polished Stainless steel:

Stainless steel has a high resistance to corrosion and is a popular choice for pool areas. At Lump we polish the Stainless steel to a variety of decorative grades, chat to us to obtain a sample.

Do you supply samples of Lump finishes?

You are welcome to request a sample detailing any of Lumps finishes. Please email info@lump.com.au with your postal address with some basic information about your project and specify the finish you are interested in.
