IMPORTANT NOTICE TO BUYERS OF A SINGLE PIECE OF FURNITURE, ARCHITECTURAL ARTIFACT OR LARGE ITEM IN OUR “OTHER ARTS” CATALOG.
The minimum sea freight charge is for a cubic meter (in which several small items may fit), and from Thailand to any international port shipping costs generally between US$600 and US$800.
On arrival, some countries charge only VAT, for others VAT is additional to Customs fees. A custom agent/forwarder should preferably be hired to help facilitate clearance, unless you already have knowledge of procedure. And depending on how far you live from the nearest international port, trucking and handling fees might well be costly, especially in relation to an originally low-priced purchase.
But if, after all, it does not matter to you, you’re too much in love with that desirable object to let it pass, we will help you to the best of our ability to give you the useful information regarding your shipment (such as crate size and approximate weight). You will then be able to obtain a quotation from one or several agents (customs brokers & forwarders) that are available in the yellow pages of your town or of the nearest one.
For your information: In order to reduce the price of voluminous or heavy items usually sent by airmail (mentioned as “Free shipping”) we advise you to group them together with other items marked as “Contact us for shipping”. Your selection will then be sent by sea freight. This will allow you to get a total price decrease by sometimes as much as half of the displayed price. Of course we will refund the difference.
Thank you for your understanding.
