Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

​1. How long does it take for the gallery to process an order?

We aim to dispatch orders next working day with DHL or Royal Mail. You will be informed of the shipping method at checkout. Orders placed the day before bank holidays and gallery closure will be processed when the gallery reopens.

Please be aware that items that are part of our current exhibition cannot be collected or posted until the exhibition has ended. Details of exhibition end dates are available to view on our exhibition page – this allows for the exhibition to run in full and we appreciate your cooperation during this time.

For special requests or urgent deliveries, please contact us at gallery@maudandmabel.com and we will do our best to accommodate your request depending on available options on a case by case basis. Please note that a quicker delivery time may incur additional charges. Please contact us if you have any questions about your delivery.

 

2. What are your shipping times?
Orders within the UK are usually delivered the next working day after dispatch. Delivery times for orders outside of the UK will vary. Once your order has been dispatched, you will receive a tracking number via email that will provide you with estimated delivery date and times from our postal providers.

Delivery times are estimates and are subject to change according to services by our postal providers. During public holidays (e.g. Christmas, Easter weekend and Bank Holidays) and in the case of strikes, delivery times may be affected. These changes may be out of our control, though we always endeavour to keep our clients informed and address any issues that may arise.

Tax will be deducted at checkout for orders outside of the UK.

Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges and cannot foresee their amount. Please contact your local customs office for further information on local duties and taxes.
