Regular shipping methods

We regularly ship via international postal service as signed for, registered mail, with tracking. The delivery times to US are around 12 to 17 days, UK and EU around 12 to 15 days, Japan around 12 days, Asia and Australia is around 20 days.
Shipment to other countries varies but is usually between 20 to 45 days. Shipments to South Africa are exclusively only by DHL express due to unstable shipping service.
For shipments to Latin America (especially Mexico) and India we suggest the use of DHL express as well.
Upon request we can provide a not registered mail, without tracking for a lower shipping charge, we however suggest the use of registered mail with tracking for safe delivery.

The price of regular shipping varies but for stamps, coins and other small items is around $5 and for larger items is $15 to $45.


Express shipping
We also do offer DHL Express door to door service, for extra charge. World wide delivery times are 2 to 4 working days. If you decide to use the DHL service please let us know upfront also please provide us with your telephone number which will be given to the courier so he can arrange a time of delivery which suits you best. The basic DHL shipping charge for US, UK, EU and Japan is $56, for Latin America, rest of Asia and other countries the price varies, but can be around $75.

For large items (e.g. furniture, large paintings) we can arrange a special Freight shipment, either by sea or by truck. For price and more details please contact us.

Packing

We pack every item with care, we use numerous protective materials, such as numerous layers of bubble wrap, hardboard, bubble wrap envelope, foils and other protective materials. We also mark every package with DO NOT BEND or FRAGILE signs. Each package should be protected from water damage or harsh handling, however, it depends on the conditions. We ship paintings, drawings and prints unframed unless requested otherwise, if a frame is shipped together with a painting we can not guarantee its condition upon delivery either in regard to the frame or the glass used.

If you have any special request regarding shipping or packing & handling please let us know and we will do our best to assist.
