How to Buy/Terms and Conditions

Advance viewings

If you would like to see any painting before buying, and are able to travel to Dunblane in Central Scotland, I am very happy to arrange a viewing. Simply contact me to arrange a time. If you have already decided to make a purchase, please read on!

Purchase methods

Online purchases are processed through Paypal meaning your credit or debit card details are kept confidential - simply click on the "Buy now" button and follow the instructions from there.  You can either use your own Paypal account or, if you don't have one, input your card details directly.  If you wish to pay using another method, please contact me first. I am happy to be flexible but in most cases I will need to receive cleared payment before shipping a painting.

Delivery (Postage and Packing) costs and timing

For unframed paintings and small or medium sized box canvases I will generally use Royal Mail First Class Special Delivery and prices are indicated for the UK. For larger box canvases and framed paintings which exceed the size or weight limits for this service I have given a price based on the Parcelforce 48 service to Mainland UK.

I will post worldwide but since prices vary tremendously depending on the size of the package, only UK delivery costs are shown here. Many of my paintings could be sent unframed and unmounted using the Airsure or International Signed For services which only cost a few pounds more than the UK prices shown here. However most framed paintings, canvases and mounted works would need to be sent using a courier service which is considerably more expensive. So if you are interested in international delivery (or simply want to use a different service from the one shown here) simply contact me for a quote on postage.  Please note that you will be responsible for the cost of any import duties for your country of residence.

If you are interested in purchasing more than one painting, please contact me prior to purchase and I will adjust the delivery charge as appropriate - often two paintings can be posted almost as cheaply as one, particularly if they are similar in size and format.

In most cases I aim to post within 3 working days of receiving payment, often sooner. If there is likely to be any delay I will let you know as soon as possible.

Please note that delivery costs take into account the cost of packaging the item safely for transit. Adequate insurance cover is included in the cost of P&P - however glass is specifically excluded from the insurance provided by Royal Mail/Parcelforce. So if you purchase a framed and glazed painting please note that the glass is not covered by insurance. If this is of concern to you, I am happy to supply any painting unframed or framed but unglazed, please just contact me for details.

Returns

If you are not happy with the painting once you receive it, you can contact me within 7 working days to arrange for a refund. The painting should be returned in its original condition, in the packaging it was sent in or equivalent, and using the same postal method. You will then receive a refund (less postage charges). You will be responsible for the cost of returning the painting to me.
