Delivery to anywhere in mainland UK is free. The cost of delivery is included within my selling price. There is an additional charge for Saturday delivery, but I am happy to arrange this for you.
Conscious of the need to recycle, I re-use shipping materials whenever possible. Therefore my package may not always be the prettiest, but you can be sure that I will still have made it as secure and robust as possible.
Additional charges apply for delivery outside of mainland UK. See my shipping estimates below. A separate Paypal invoice will be sent before your purchase is despatched. Items will usually be dispatched within 2 working days using my regular courier service and normally will require a signature upon receipt. I will email an estimation of when to expect delivery once the package is in transit, along with a tracking number.
Please Note: I would appreciate you putting your telephone number on the PayPal checkout form if possible. This is required for me to be able to book a courier. You have my assurance that it will not be used for any other purposes.
Pick-up in person can be arranged by appointment if preferred for local customers.
In the unlikely event of your artwork being damaged during transit, please send me photographs and a description of the damage to the item and packaging if possible. Unfortunately, none of the courier services in the UK offer insurance that covers breakable items such as glass, and they don't cover artwork either unless we are prepared to pay a massive premium. Therefore I send my pictures out packed as robustly as possible but uninsured.
Over the years I have despatched several hundred artworks all over the world and it's very rare that a problem occurs. I do enjoy approximately a 98% success rate so you can be confident that your purchase will arrive on time and in perfect condition. A full refund will be offered in the event of a picture arriving damaged beyond repair. If it is repairable (ie, just broken glass) and the customer would prefer to have it reglazed in their own locality, then I will cover the cost of that.
Please be aware that although I offer free shipping within the UK mainland, I do actually have to pay the full cost myself. If a picture is to be returned because the customer doesn't like it for whatever reason, then again a full refund of the buying price will be made upon my receipt of the undamaged item. However, I am unwilling to refund the cost of shipping incurred by me for it's outward journey or by the customer for it's return.
International customers will often have to pay import duty before their picture can be released by customs. This can be quite substantial, for instance Canada may charge 20% of the total buying price including shipping, depending on the province. It is in the customers own interest and responsibility to check in advance what this cost may be as it is not included in my selling price. A guide to rates charged by most countries of the world can be found here.
International Shipping Estimates.
Please note, although I have done my utmost to be accurate, these are estimates for framed artwork. If my actual shipping costs are dramatically different than estimated, for instance if it is an unframed artwork, my invoice will be adjusted accordingly once I have received an accurate quote.
