Shipping

WHEN WILL MY ORDER SHIP?

We like to make sure each edition is absolutely perfect by taking a few extra steps. This means orders can take 2-4 weeks to get to you while they are framed (if you have ordered a framed work), checked and await the seal of approval from the artist themselves. We do our best to ship as quickly as possible, so we really appreciate your patience during this process as our main priority is sending something to you that is perfect and that you will want to keep in your collection for many years to come.

HOW WILL MY ORDER BE PACKAGED?

Every finished work we send to our collectors is packed in a flat, wooden box that has been custom-built for your piece. Once securely packaged inside the box, we attach your shipping labels and any necessary customs documents, as well as include your Certificate of Authenticity, signed by the artist.

Please remember to take extra care when opening the packaging and unwrapping your artwork. We include handling gloves for you to use for this or if you just fancy wearing them out on weekends.

HOW MUCH DOES SHIPPING COST?

Shipping costs depend on the size, weight and destination of your artwork. Shipping costs are calculated prior to checkout and included in the total cost of your order, with no additional charges beyond the cost of delivery to us. All orders are shipped using our selected premium carriers.

DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY?

Yes, we ship internationally using selected global carriers.

Please be aware that international orders may be subject to relevant customs duties of the destination country. Customs fees should be paid upon arrival and are in addition to shipping and handling costs. As customs charges are governmental taxes, we are afraid we cannot discount or reimburse you for these costs.

If your country is not an option at checkout, please email us at info@avantarte.com and we will contact our carriers directly to get a delivery quote.

HOW DO YOU DECLARE GOODS FOR INTERNATIONAL ORDERS?

This varies by country and we provide every shipment with a customs declaration form. If customs need more information from the buyer, we assist them with clearing shipment.

IS MY ORDER INSURED WHILE BEING SHIPPED TO ME?

Every shipment to any of our collectors is fully insured from the moment it leaves our warehouse to when it arrives at your door.

WILL I BE CHARGED DUTIES AND TAXES BY THE CUSTOMS OF MY COUNTRY?

You may be charged duties by your country’s customs. The exact amount can vary depending on the artwork itself and customs laws of your country. We pay extra close attention to orders going through customs. Each order will have the correct documentation so that minimal appropriate duties are applied.
