Nearly all shipping is done through the US Postal Service: either First Class or Priority Shipping (3-5 business days within the Continental United States). Delivery confirmation and insurance are available upon request (but please be aware that these services cost more and therefore you will be invoiced for them). If you require expedited shipping, please contact ArtistaTree directly for a quote.
We will ship to most countries outside of the United States, however delivery times can vary as well as VAT and delivery charges, so please be aware that added costs may be incurred when receiving goods from the U.S. Shipping USPS First Class does not offer any tracking options, therefore if you need a tracking number for your order please let me know as this costs about double for international shipping so your shipping costs will increase. Items cannot be shipped to the following countries from the United States: Sudan, North Korea, or Iran.
For customers having items shipped to the UK, Royal Mail now charges to receive goods shipped from non-EU countries. The following text is from the Royal Mail website:
"If you are receiving a package from overseas (unless it’s from another EU Country), please be aware that it may incur customs charges. Any package assessed as being liable for customs charges will also incur a Royal Mail handling fee of £8.
Any goods imported into the UK over the value of £15 are liable to import VAT. Gifts between private individuals over the value of £36 are also liable for VAT. Goods and gifts over these values may also be liable for customs duty. You no longer have to pay customs duty for goods up to the value of £135, however you will still be required to pay import VAT and excise duty where applicable."
Please search "Notice 143" on the Royal Mail website for more information. I am afraid I can no longer pay the VAT and handling fee for UK customers as it is not cost-effective for my business. If you are in the UK and would like me to price using a private carrier such as DHL, FedEx or UPS please contact me for a shipping quote. Thanks for your understanding.
