Packaging and Insurance
Large originals are shipped flat in a custom made crate as standard. Smaller paintings are usually packaged with hardboard or plywood both sides to prevent damage. All works are insured to their full amount.
Once you receive your painting please check the packaging for any damage before signing the couriers delivery note.
Goods supplied to European Union Countries do not require a customs declaration but this may change once we leave the EU. We will keep you up to date on this.
Outside the European Union all international packages need to be accurately described, with costs, on the customs declaration document.
Customs and import duties are not included. The customer is responsible for the payment of surcharges. Any customs or import duties that are levied once the package reaches your country are out of our control so you may want to contact your local customs office for further information.
All prints are dispatched flat packed by first class recorded delivery or Parcelforce 48 in the UK . Next Day delivery is available on request for an extra charge.
International orders are dispatched using International Signed For or Parcelforce Global Services. You should receive your order, subject to any customs delays, within 21 working days.
Delivery is currently free to UK mainland addresses. If you are outside the UK (including the Channel Islands) shipping rates are based on the overall weight of your order.
RETURNS & EXCHANGES
If you are unhappy with your purchase or it has been damaged in transit, you are entitled to a full refund on returning the goods.
Under distance selling regulations you have seven-day cooling off period after you have received your painting in which to notify me that you no longer want it. If not completely satisfied you must inform me in writing - by letter or email - of your decision to return the goods. The artwork must be returned within 30 days of receipt. The original must be packed carefully using the outward packaging and insured for the full purchase value as it may not be possible to offer a refund or replacement for any goods, which are damaged during return transit.
Once I have received the returned item, I guarantee to refund 100% of the artwork's purchase price. However, your postage expenses are non-refundable.
What to do if your purchase is damaged
You must make a note of any damage on the delivery record. If you do not the couriers will argue that the shipment was delivered in good condition. In order for them to consider a claim for damage, the contents, original shipping carton and packing must be available for inspection.
If the package has suffered shipping damage:
contact me immediately
contact the shipping company for a damage inspection report
keep the original shipping carton and packaging for the shipping company to inspect
request that the shipping company return the painting
Unwanted, Missing or Damaged Prints
If, for any reason, your print arrives damaged (or does not arrive at all) we will either replace or refund your purchase, whichever is appropriate.
If you are unhappy with your purchase please return it within 30 days of receipt. Please pack carefully, ideally in the original packaging as it may not be possible to offer a refund if the print is returned damaged. Any unwanted returns will be refunded in full less postage costs.
