Shipping art takes a bit longer then shipping stuff you buy in an average web shop. Art is quite delicate and has odd sizes. In other words, it’s very important to take extra care to make sure your new art arrives safely. We strive to ship within 7 days from the moment you purchased it. Depending on your location it can take a couple days for your new art to arrive. You can track the progress with the tracking link you have received.
We take extra effort to make sure that your new art is handled with the utmost care. If that means we have the build a crate, we build a crate. If that means we have to invent a new shipping tube, we invent a new shipping tube. If that means we have to go to the moon, we go to the moon. In other words, we make sure that your new art arrives safely at your doorstep.
Our shipments are always insured. The entire journey to your doorstep is our responsibility. However, if the package of your new art is clearly damaged, please reject it, so we can have a serious chat with the shipper.
The shipping cost depends on your location and the location of the art and the time and effort that goes into handling it. Art ships directly from the artist’s studio and that can be anywhere in the world. This means that you might pay less for shipping for work A compared to work B. In other words, you pay shipping per work of art. Let’s make that a bit more clear with an example.
You live and breath in Paris and acquire WORK #1 from ARTIST A and WORK #2 from ARTIST B.
ARTIST A lives in France as well and can ship WORK #1 for €20. ARTIST B, however, lives in Russia and has to charge €75 to ship WORK #2. This means that your total shipping charge will be €20 + €75 = €95.
You can check your shipping charge by simply adding your desired work of art to your cart and entering your address.
DUTIES AND TAXES
If you live in a different customs area compared to where the art ships from, you might have to pay import duties and or tax to your government. For example, your new art ships from the US to your home in the Netherlands. In this case you have to pay import taxes when your new work of art clears customs. If you want to know more about potential duties and taxes before you buy, please get in touch!
CHANGING YOUR MIND
You fell in love with a work of art and you decided to acquire that work of art you so desire, but, naturally, before you decided to acquire it you talked it over with your significant other. Now your brand new work of art is hanging on the wall and your love is stronger then ever. But then, disaster strikes! Your spouse makes an 180 degree turn and says the unthinkable:
“Owwh … Hmm … Is this the painting you where talking about?”
Naturally, your first thought is divorce, but who will get custody of Jimmy Chew, the trusted canine? After a strongly worded and somewhat heated dialogue, you, the bigger person, do the sensible thing. With pain in your heart you decide to part with your new work of art and return it.
In short: yes, you can return your art due to change of mind. Please have a look at the steps you need to take.
