Delivery

 

When will I get my order?

We usually ship orders on Thursday. Usually, it takes 2-3 working days to process an order, after which it’s shipped out.

There are some exceptions where an order may ship out later than three (3) days. If this is the case for your order, then the estimated delivery date presented at checkout will take the actual ship date into account.

Following are the shipping services that we use to ship your orders:

  • ROYAL MAIL 1st CLASS (Signed for - Small Parcel) - 2-3 days

  • Parcel Force (Big Parcels) - 2-3 days

 

Please Note: Above figures are estimates. And, the actual shipment time will be made available to you by the courier company when your order gets shipped.

If we are experiencing a high volume of orders, shipments may be delayed by a few days. Please allow additional days in transit for delivery. If there will be a significant delay in shipment of your order, we will contact you via email.

Delivery delays can occasionally occur.

Please Note: Due to the current scenario of pandemic COVID-19, there might be some delays, but your product and your money is in safe hands.

Our fulfillment times may be longer than usual and may continue to increase until things get back to normal. We're seeing delays in our supply chain, including distributors and shipping carriers as the entire industry is grappling with challenges.  

 

 

What Happens If My Order Is Delayed?

If delivery is delayed for any reason we will let you know as soon as possible and will advise you of a revised estimated date for delivery.

 

For EU and UK consumers: This does not affect your statutory rights. For more information please refer to our Terms of Use

 

 

Do you ship Internationally and will I be charged customs for my order?

 

We only ship international orders on request. And, only when you have discussed all the details on email (claire@howarthsgallery.co.uk) prior to making the purchase.

 

We are committed to providing excellent service and support for the global community. With that being said, international shipping can be complicated so we want to provide you with as much information as we can. If after reading all of this, you have specific questions, please contact us and we'll be happy to help you.

 

For some international orders, we may ask for a credit card verification form in order to process your order. It protects the cardholder and us against fraudulent transactions.

 

When using your credit card, you will be billed in Pounds and your credit card company will bill you with your local currency at the current exchange rate.

International shipments may be subject to import taxes, duties and/or customs fees. These fees are the sole responsibility of the recipient. If a shipment is refused and returned, you will be responsible for any import taxes and/or return shipping costs incurred by us. These fees are specific for the destination country. Therefore, we do not know what the amount will be. The shipping and handling fee applied by us at checkout does NOT cover any duties, taxes or brokerage fees. Please be prepared to pay these fees when your package is delivered. If the package is refused or returned to us, all customs charges or fees will be charged to you. For more details about import fees, check out the 'International Duties, Taxes, and Other Fees' section below.

 

Sometimes your country's customs department will require additional information in order to clear your shipment for delivery. If they ask you for an invoice or commercial invoice, you can find a copy of that by looking at your order history under your profile. If you need further assistance, please contact us.

 

 

 

 

I entered the wrong address at the time of checkout. Can I change it?

If the order is still in the processing phase then we can still change it. Please contact us at claire@howarthsgallery.co.uk at the earliest. However, if the order is already shipped then we can’t do anything in that case.

 

 

My order should be here by now, but I still don't have it. What should I do?

Before getting in touch with us, please help us out by doing the following:  

  • Check your shipping confirmation email for any mistakes in the delivery address

  • Ask your local post office if they have your package

  • Stop by your neighbors in case the courier left the package with them   

If the shipping address was correct, and the package wasn't left at the post office or at your neighbor’s, get in touch with us at claire@howarthsgallery.co.uk with your order number.   

If you did find a mistake in your delivery address, we can send you a replacement order, but shipping will be at your own cost.

 

 

How do I track my order?

You’ll receive a tracking link via email when your order ships out. If you have any questions about your tracking or shipment, drop us a line at claire@howarthsgallery.co.uk.  

 

 

I received a wrong/damaged product, what should I do?

We’re so sorry if the product you ordered arrived damaged. To help us resolve this for you quickly, please email us at claire@howarthsgallery.co.uk within fourteen (14) days with photos/videos of the damaged product, your order number, and any other details you may have about your order.

International Duties, Taxes and Other Fees

 

Shipping Cost: This is the cost charged by us at checkout to cover the cost of the shipping method you select for your order. Unless explicitly stated in writing by an us representative, it does not cover any of the following:

 

Duties and Taxes: These are applied by your country's customs department based on the value and characteristics of whatever is being imported. Every country has their own unique regulations and procedures.

 

Brokerage Fees: These are charged by a company to facilitate transactions between buyers and sellers. The brokerage fee is charged for services such as negotiations, sales, purchases, delivery, or advice on the transaction. In the case of importing shipments, brokerage companies often serve as the means by which the shipment is cleared through a country's customs and border protection department. These services often can incur a fee. Depending on a country's customs clearance procedures, a brokerage company will take care of the paperwork and deal with the hassle of importing a package.

In some countries, you can avoid these brokerage fees by clearing the package yourself at a customs facility. Check your country's customs laws and see if it's possible. You can also contact the shipping carrier and ask if you can clear the package yourself. Be sure to have your tracking number for them to reference.

 

Ancillary Fees: That's basically a big word for extra fees applied by the shipping carrier. These fees can include things like storage fees, expedited clearance fees and fees for having to correct customs documentation. Your customs bill should have a breakdown of what the fees are if they are applied. Most shipments don't incur hefty ancillary fees, but you should check with how certain shipping carriers deal with ancillary fees.
