Delivery Process
Hello dear Collector

Welcome to TONERA. We appreciate a lot that you decide to purchase a piece of art and we are so glad to see you are a true art lover as we also are. The delivery of art is a unique process that may have special needs for packaging and documentation, which means the sender should retain expertise in this field.

Sometimes the shipping of the artwork has the same value as the artist creating and art collecting processes. So it is extremely important to meet all possible questions we both can meet regarding the shipping in advance. Here you will find the necessary information about shipping, package, dispatching, and delivery times, papers, and customs duties (in case of international purchases).

We will try to do our best and always keep in touch helping with all questions you may have. Feel free to ask us. We are sending our artworks worldwide regularly and can advise you on the most common questions.

ACCURATE DELIVERY INFORMATION

Please, pay attention to place accurate delivery information during making orders and purchases. It helps plan correct delivery arrangements and exclude additional delivery charges incurred in case of incorrect details of address or contacts. Most items are sent by signed for delivery, so, please, also note, it could be required a signature upon receipt.

GENERAL

When making an order under £1000, please, do not forget to select your country from the countries list on the separate product's page to calculate and add the shipping costs. If your country is not on the delivery list, please, write us first. Please note that the delivery costs are paid in advance together with the product cost. Every product's page consists of the possibility to add delivery fees to a chosen destination country, by choosing it from the drop-down list as shown on the image below.

FREE DELIVERY

We offer FREE-UK delivery for our products at any price for collectors based in the UK.

We also offer FREE WORLDWIDE delivery for international orders equal to or above £1000 / €1170 / $1355. If you order equal to or bigger than mentioned sum, please, choose the FREE-UK from the country list regardless of the country of destination before the order placing and there will be no delivery rates applied.

IMPORTANT NOTE: In other cases excluded from the two above, the product is always delivered at the expense of the buyer.

DELIVERY TIMES

Delivery times are estimates but usually takes from 2 to 5 working days thanks to express delivery service. However, sometimes it can delay because of the Customs process (for international delivery) or transport delays what is usually reported in real-time.

If you have any queries about shipping please contact us: admin@tonera.gallery or here.

DISPATCHING TERMS

We generally dispatch the product within 2-10 working days after receipt of payment depends on the exact products. In most cases, there are 2-5 working days for dispatch. If for some reason we are unable to dispatch the exact product you have ordered, do not worry, then we will write you directly in advance and refund the full sum paid for that item or offer you an alternative one.

FOR INTERNATIONAL COLLECTORS: VAT, CUSTOMS DUTIES, COURIER FEES

When you, as a customer, are located in a country that is either not the UK, we advise you to check directly with customs duties in the country where any delivery address is located. It helps understand what duties or other charges may be imposed. You also can find approximate calculations for some countries we provided below.

Customs duty and import charges are often called government charges as they are imposed by the government in every country and are outside of our control.

Please, note, you are solely responsible for complying with any import laws and requirements which apply to the country where the delivery address is located. It means that in cases of international delivery in addition to the actual purchase price of the product and the delivery costs, you will be solely and fully responsible for any and all tax/duty costs, fees, liabilities, handling charges, additional insurance that may arise or apply to your order after the package will cross the border. Most duties will be applied when an item will cross the border or before the delivery date, so in most cases, you will be notified about it (if appropriate) by email or phone.

We are sorry, but at this time we aren't able to reimburse you for any local import taxes or duties since those are payable by the importer (ie. the customer or collector) and this is regulated by every single country law.

There is some information below which could be useful for you when you are buying art or arty interior product from the UK. Please, note, that this information is actually in October 2021 and could be changed later.

Basically, all import charges consist of three types: Import Duties, Import VAT, and Courier Fees.

You can check these costs in advance using an online calculator such as Simply Duty https://www.simplyduty.com/import-calculator/, but, please keep in mind that these values are only estimated because the calculator’s estimate can apply a standard VAT rate instead of reduced VAT for art import and could do not include the individual admin/courier charges for preparing customs paperwork.

FOR USA BASED COLLECTORS

Original works of art are duty-free. Usually, there are no import duties for art imported from the UK to the USA if the price is under $2500, but the oral declaration can be needed. Sculptures of any materials are also duty-free. If the item is valued over $2500 formal entry through a Customs Broker and ACE manifest is required. Personal importation can be done by an oral declaration at a Port of Entry. You can find more information here.

FOR EU-BASED COLLECTORS. AFTER BREXIT: BETWEEN UK AND EU

IMPORT DUTY
Most goods imported between the EU and UK are “nil” rated for customs duties.

IMPORT VAT
From 1 January 2021 you will be charged import VAT when goods are entering your country. In the majority of EU countries, import of the original artwork is subject to a reduced VAT rate (not 20%, but 5,5%, 7%, or 10% for example).

Please, note, VAT rates do vary between the countries. Please also note that import VAT could be charged not only on the value of the artwork but also on the cost of shipping and insurance and on customs duty.

Here is updating information about reduced VAT rates for imports in EU countries. Also, find the reduced and standard VAT for art import to EU countries in the table below.
