Section 6: Shipping

We wrap and box every painting carefully and with due diligence. We usually send stock with the LaPoste's COLISSIMO or CHRONOPOST services. These are incredibly reliable and we have successfully shipped hundreds of paintings all over the world with them. Once your parcel is sent you will receive a track and trace number. You can of course ask us at anytime on the progress of the shipment. Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply.  At this time, we offer FREE worldwide shipping but withhold the right to change this policy without notice.

All our paintings leave with the correct paperwork including an individualised customs passport and copies of the invoice. We are registered on platforms such as EORI (for UK and Swiss imports) and the German LUCID packaging database to enable quick shipping and reduce delays. We will help you to track your painting through customs if there are any undue delays. However, we are not responsible for any delays. Any applicable custom duties and/or taxes are the responsibility of the buyer.

In the unlikely case that something goes wrong and your package and the contents are damaged you should notify us and the company that delivered your package within 48 hours. Do not throw away the box, it could help to prove the deliverer's liability and you may need it to return the painting. Take multiple photos of the box and the contents and complete a claim form with the deliverer. Send us a copy of the claim form for a refund. PLEASE NOTE: I do not refund for unclaimed or undeliverable packages due to absence or incorrect/incomplete addresses etc.

PLEASE NOTE: Antique and vintage frames are wrapped with extreme care, usually with foam edging to protect plaster and gilt frames, but they are often fragile and can potentially arrive slightly damaged during transit, for instance some moulding or plaster on the frame may become loose, this is usually easily repaired with glue. We will do our best to advise on repairs but it is important to note that but we do not replace frames that have been suffered minor or additional losses during transit due to movement and fragility.
