Items sold as "shipping-included" mean that the items are not physically stocked by Texas Time Gifts and Fine Art.
For domestic orders, the manufacturer will "drop-ship" the order directly to the customer.
For international orders, the item(s) will first be delivered to TTGFA in Austin, Texas and then shipped to its delivery destination. This allows the order's customs duties, tariffs, taxes, etc. to be calculated at the time of purchase, as well as for the creation of the customs declaration.
Domestic Shipping Specifics:
The price of a drop-shipped item includes a flat-fee United Parcel Service (UPS) Ground shipping charge for all Domestic—that is the United States and Puerto Rico—delivery destinations.
The exceptions are United States Postal Service (USPS) Post Office Boxes and APO/FPO/MPO/DPO specialty delivery addresses.
USPS Post Office Box, APO/FPO/MPO/DPO Addresses:
The price of a drop-shipped item includes flat-fee USPS Priority Mail shipping.
NOTE: Only the USPS can deliver to USPS Post Office Box and APO/FPO/ MPO/DPO specialty addresses.
No Domestic Shipping Double-Charges:
For Domestic delivery addresses, if the same order also includes other, non-shipping-included items along with the shipping-included item(s), the shipping-included item(s) will not factor into the order's shipping charge; in other words, the customer will not be charged twice for shipping the drop-shipped item(s).
International Shipping Specifics:
All orders placed outside of the United States and Puerto Rico are considered International, even if they are going to United States Territories and Protectorates.
To reconfirm, items shipping to International destinations will ship from Austin, Texas via UPS. International shipping charges and applicable customs duties, taxes, VAT, etc. will be calculated at the time of purchase.
Please add five-to-seven (5-to-7) business days to your estimated delivery date.
Choice of UPS service is determined by the delivery destination:
CANADA AND MEXICO:
- UPS Standard
EVERYWHERE ELSE, INCLUDING U.S. TERRITORIES AND PROTECTORATES:
- UPS Worldwide Expedited
For international post office box addresses, the order will ship via USPS Priority International as UPS does not deliver to such addresses, even outside the United States.
International Shipping Charges:
International orders will not be double-charged for shipping with one difference: the total shipping cost will reflect both the domestic shipping-included charge for the item(s) to reach Austin and then the additional charge for the order to reach its delivery destination.
INSURANCE AND REQUIRED SIGNATURE DELIVERY FOR CERTAIN SHIPMENTS
All domestic and international drop-ship orders with a retail value over $100.00 USD will include full insurance and signature delivery within the sales price.
Please always feel free to CONTACT TTGFA before placing your order to make arrangements, as any of the above three services require a separate order format.
