All paintings are sent unstretched and rolled in a tube, unless on a stretched and framed canvas so as to not disturb the pigments of the finished painting. Marana Gallery uses Australia’s number one mail service, Australia Post and, in some cases, other international mail services when delivering to Scandinavia and other international locations. Buyers outside of Scandinavia must contact Marana Gallery and we will determine delivery costs depending on your specific country. Any extra delivery costs will be passed onto the customer.
Marana Gallery will endeavor to fulfill your order for product(s) listed in the Order Confirmation by the estimated delivery date specified. Note that artworks are often produced in extremely remote areas of Australia that receive limited postal services which can delay delivery times. Every reasonable effort will be made to ensure the product(s) are shipped within 3 working days of completion of payment; however, some places have only one mail plane per week!
If for any reason we cannot meet the delivery date you will be kept informed and offered a choice of either continuing with the extended delivery time or cancellation with a full refund. Reasons for the delay could include: customization of product(s), unforeseen circumstances or delivery area.
