Shipping and Delivery

 

Prices on the website exclude shipping and delivery. The gallery will contact you to confirm shipping and delivery details and take a separate payment for the associated costs if applicable. This will be clearly stated in the order registration e-mail.

 

Each purchase from CAA is unique, for this reason we professionally wrap each item. Delivery charges are calculated on the basis of weight, size and monetary value of the items. The most economical way of shipping will be chosen to ensure the safe delivery of CAA items, which often require specialist packaging. For large scale work and international deliveries we use a selection of trusted shippers. The price of shipping can fluctuate due to changes in taxation and currency values.

 

We aim to deliver as quickly as possible, especially if something is needed as a gift. When placing an order, please bear in mind that delivery times are estimates and postal and courier services may encounter delays that are beyond our control.

 

Unfortunately we cannot fulfil any obligations if the product you ordered becomes out of stock, if we are unable to obtain authorisation for your payment, or if we identify a pricing or product description error.

International Shipping

International orders are not duty paid and may incur additional charges once the parcel reaches its destination country. Customs or import duties are charged once a package reaches its destination country. These are compulsory charges which must be paid by the client. These charges are not within our control and there is no way to estimate what they might be. Globally, customs policies and import duties vary. You may wish to contact your local customs office for current charges before placing your order to avoid unexpected charges. CAA reserves the right to refund transactions minus all costs incurred on returns.

Collect from gallery (1-2 working days):

 

Contemporary Applied Arts offers a free collection service from the gallery in Marylebone, London on most items. Orders placed for collection will be confirmed by a member of the team by email and will usually be available within 1-2 working days. Please bring a copy of your purchase confirmation as proof of purchase when collecting. Orders placed for collection will be kept in the gallery for up to 14 days. If you are unable to collect your order within this timeframe, please contact the gallery to arrange delivery. If the item has not been collected after 14 days and, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you to re-arrange delivery, we reserve the right to cancel your order and issue a refund.

 

Returns and Exchanges

 

We understand that if you are buying a gift for someone you may not always get it right. If that happens, or if you change your mind for any other reason, you may wish to return an item bought on our website and seek a refund. In this case, you need to let us know in writing no longer than 14 days after the date on which you received the products. Please contact the gallery by emailing info@caa.org.uk with your contact and order details. You will then be contacted with instructions on how to proceed with the return. We ask that the item is returned in perfect condition, in its original packaging within 14 working days from the date the return was arranged. The cost of any undamaged and unworn (if applicable) items, correctly returned, will be credited to the original purchaser’s credit or debit card. Any shipping charges will not be refunded. International custom duties and sales taxes are non-refundable for shipments outside the UK.

 

If you return goods to us, we recommend you use a special delivery service for your own protection. Please use an insured method of dispatch and obtain proof of posting. We cannot accept responsibility for postage fees or for any items damaged, lost or stolen in transit.
