StoneHouse Artifacts – Sales Policy

 Ordering from us is simple!

We prefer to handle all sales directly via SQUARE, which accepts all credit and debit cards while providing a high level of security for your purchase. Your online payment is very secure and we never see any credit card information. When you contact us with your desired purchase, we will send an invoice to your E-mail address. Click on the Square link and enter your payment information. Upon receipt of payment we ship immediately. It’s as simple and secure as that! Please email us or call for ordering or more information.

Smaller items sent by USPS are insured. If damage is noted please save all material and take pictures for your claim. Damage claims are the responsibility of the buyer. Claims may be filed with USPS 3-14 days after receipt of your item.

On delivery inspect and note any damage, open if necessary and show the driver. As always take photos and notify us to begin the claim process.

Shipping Large Items

Our policy on large items is to put the proposed shipment out for bid on multiple shipping sites in order to find the best possible price for our clients. The freight company will call to set up an appointment before an attempt to deliver.  All deliveries are curbside, a ‘lift gate’ truck is provided on very heavy items. The customer is responsible for bringing your purchase from curbside into your home. If the crating/packing appears to be damaged, the driver must be notified of that and if at all possible unpack and inspect the item for damage before the driver leaves.

Often we can save you on delivery costs if you pick-up at the trucking companies distribution center, if one is near.

We bubble wrap and cover fully with cardboard and band it to individually built pallets. If a crate is needed, we use 3/4″ CDX or OSB for a base then sides & top of 1/2″ OSB. A cordless driver and phillips bit will be needed to unpack the crate.


International Shipments

Customers are responsible for all taxes and customs duty incurred by their home country.  Before a parcel is released/delivered those fees incurred must be paid to the local Post Office in that country.  International delivery times by USPS often can take up to 10-14 days.
