Coastal Peoples specializes in quality packaging and crating for worldwide shipment.
Reputable, competitively-priced carriers are used and pricing quotes can be provided in advance.
If your online order states that it requires "special shipping", the Gallery will contact you directly with further instructions for the separate payment of the shipping costs. For security purposes, online credit card details are not retained by the Gallery so please have your credit card information available for shipping costs only.
Costs will vary depending on the shipping destination, dimensions, weight, and insured value of the packaged item. If required, a crate will be an additional cost.
For packaging, please allow the gallery a minimum of 3 - 5 days (during summer season, at least a minimum of 7 days) to prepare your package unless you have requested an immediate or rush shipment. If your item requires a crate, there will be a waiting period for a custom crate to be created.
If a rushed shipment is requested, there will be an additional cost.
Shipping charges will include insurance, unless otherwise noted. Smaller packages shipped via Canada Post offer insurance as an option. Contact us at email@example.com to obtain more details on the most cost-effective method to ship your package.
No taxes are charged when shipping outside of Canada. When shipping across Canada, HST is applied to any provinces that already have HST and provincial tax only for those provinces that do not have HST. Shipments within British Columbia will have both PST + GST applied.
No duty is charged on Canadian First Nation's artwork when shipped to the United States (some exceptions may apply with specific state taxes although this does not apply to all states - please consult your local government).
On a random basis, there may be the very rare occasion when USA Customs (or International Customs) deems it necessary to perform an inspection of the goods being shipped to you. They may choose to hold the piece for a short period of time, which is beyond the control of both the Gallery and shipper. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time while the Gallery assists Customs in expediting your package as quickly as possible.
If your shipping address is different than your billing address, please indicate when placing an order.
If you happen to live in a remote area which is not easily accessible, please notify us as this will allow the Gallery to choose the most appropriate courier company for shipping.
Please note: Courier companies will NOT ship to P.O. (Post Office) boxes so please provide a physical shipping address.
For Christmas holiday shipments, please submit your order no later than December 19th (USA & International); and December 22nd (within Canada).
