Tambino products are handmade to order in Arizona, therefore our lead time is approximately 2-4 weeks.
Standard: We ship ground service using UPS, FedEx, USPS, and Ontrac. We currently do not offer expedited shipping due to the varying lead time associated with hand-made products. Shipping times for West Coast customers are 1-2 days; East Coast 5 business days.
In the unlikely event you receive a product that is incorrect, damaged or missing parts, please notify us within 7 days of delivery so that we can quickly take action to resolve the issue by arranging a return and/or shipping a replacement part. Please note: we may require digital images of the damage to process your claim. Although orders are packaged properly, transit-related damage may occur. Inspect your order carefully when it arrives. Please note any damage to your furniture and to the packing materials on the delivery receipt. Do not sign the shipping documents without recording details of transit damage. (For example: "the furniture is scratched", "the box is crushed on the top corner", "punctured or wet box"). If the box appears to be in good condition, but you cannot inspect the shipment due to time constraints, please note, "not inspected at delivery" on the shipping waybill. However, if the box is compromised in any way, please note "box damaged, possible damage to piece, not inspected at delivery" on the waybill. Please make sure all original packing material is kept in the event of a return before the use of the product. All items/products that have been opened and used cannot be returned. Upon inspection, if you find that your merchandise is damaged, you may choose to refuse the delivery. Damages must be reported to tambino at the time of delivery by emailing us. Tambino will be able to assist you in repair or replacement of damaged merchandise only if it is thoroughly inspected and documented as described above.
Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, APO/FPO:
We are pleased to note that many of our items can be shipped to these locations. A customer service agent will contact you if there are any shipping adjustments needed. In addition, all taxes and custom fees are the responsibility of the customer.
All of our items can be shipped internationally. We do accept international credit cards and Paypal.
Tambino is currently offering free shipping to Canada for any orders placed January 1 - January 31, 2012. Any orders placed during this time will be shipped on February 10, for expected delivery between February 20-28. To participate, simply choose "Free Pickup" as your shipping option while checking out, to avoid shipping charges, and your Canadian address will be noted for delivery. For any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unless otherwise directed, we will ship using the US Postal Service for smaller items, and a DHL or Fedex forwarder for larger items.
For larger items, international customers may choose to independently purchase shipping with cost-effective forwarding services such as www.myus.com or www.bongous.com. If using one of these services, check "pickup from warehouse" for shipping during the tambino.com checkout, so that this website will not assess shipping fees. Customer will pay shipping costs to one of these services, which routes the package to your country via air freight on DHL or Fedex. Once you have received your USA address provided to you by www.myus.com or www.bongous.com, notify us (by email or as a note in your order). This is not an endorsement of these services. Please make sure the forwarding company inspects the package upon their receipt. Our liability ends as soon as the company signs for the package.
Shipper brokerage fees, import duties, and other import taxes are responsibility of buyer. Please check with your country's customs office and the shipping company to avoid surprises. Our furniture is made of insect-free plywood, which should not require quarantine in customs. Orders refused by buyer due to brokerage fees, duties, or other taxes, will only be refunded the cost of the products once the product is returned; shipping fees will not be refunded.
A customer service agent will contact you if there are any shipping adjustments needed.
We warrant to the original consumer purchaser that this product is free of defects in materials or workmanship for one year*from the date of purchase (sales receipt is required for proof of purchase), or we will replace defective parts, or the entire product as determined on a case-by-case basis.

Shipping and handling charges, if realized to ship an order, are not refundable, nor may be credited towards an exchange. Returned items must be unused, in their original condition and packaging, with tags still on items.
