About Shipping

About Shipping - Wovensouls Art Gallery
*
1. Shipping Dates
*
Items will be shipped out within 3 days of purchase normally.
When I plan to travel for Cultural Talks or other projects,
a vacation message will announce the next shipping date in advance.
*
 
2. Rates / Mode
For simplicity I use the following standard rates for shipping.
*
    • DHL is used for orders above USD 1200
    • Singapore Post Registered Mail is used for of all orders less than USD 1200. Please note that Singapore Post offers limited tracking. 
    • If you would like to receive full tracking information for orders less than USD 1200, we could arrange DHL shipping for an additional fee.

      3. Shipping Insurance
      *
      Shipping insurance is offered free of cost for very small amounts in both Singapore Post as very as DHL and usually does not cover the cost of the item.
      *
      If requested we will purchase shipping insurance
      for additional payment of 3% of the invoice.
      .

      4. Customs
      *
      Some countries have regulatory checks on textiles / old things being brought in.
      The buyer must resolve these at her / his end as I have no access or control over the customs offices in the other countries.
      If you have any special requests in any of the above areas please discuss in advance before making the purchase.

      5. Liability
      *
      The shipping of the purchased lots is usually a smooth process.
      *
      Once the item has been handed over to the service and tracking has been noted there is really very little I can do in case of delays and other problems.
      *
      For example, events such as 
      - missed deliveries
      - theft
      - customs related issues and
      - damage during shipping
      are beyond my control
      So for expensive items you are encouraged to request DHL and purchase additional insurance.
      *
      Having said that, I will naturally do whatever I can to help in case a problem arises.
