Damaged item procedure
When you receive the parcel, BEFORE SIGNING THE DELIVERY RECEIPT, check if the packaging has some trace of damage. If there is, open the parcel, check the content
and specify any damage on the delivery receipt. You must receive a copy of this receipt.
Please do not return damaged items in shipment, as doing so will void the shipping insurance.
To begin the process, please contact me by email and alert me to the damage.
Claims should be made through the destination shipping agent. Guidelines for insurance claims vary by carrier
so please check with the final carrier for specific instructions.
Be sure to retain all original packaging as well as all pieces of the damaged item, as the shipping agent will request to examine them.
If you choose not to keep an item, contact us by email or phone within 3 days (14 days for European Union countries)
from receipt to arrange for its return. Items must be returned by insured mail in the same manner and in the same condition as sent.
If you stay outside of European Union, do declare the item as a return to the Customs.
After we have verified that the returned item is as originally sent, we will issue a refund within seven days.
