As regards non-EU or DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid) countries, which are not subject to the payment of VAT on the purchase price, local, import and customs clearance taxes shall be charged to the customer.
For any shipping-related issue we can be contacted using the email address that can be found in the Contacts section of the website.

The orders shall be processed and shipped only on weekdays, excluding national, bank and religious holidays.

Upon delivery of the package by the courier, the customer must verify that the package is intact, undamaged and untampered with.

Any damage to the package and/or the item must be immediately disputed, writing on the courier’s delivery note that the package is accepted subject to checking. Indeed, once the delivery note has been signed, the customer shall no longer be able to contest the exterior features of the delivered item.

If the delivery cannot be made because the receiver is absent or because the address information is incomplete and/or wrong, the stoppage fees shall be charged to the customer.

Unless accepted by the customer before or upon signing the contract, Giancarlo Paoli S.p.A. shall not offer a different supply from the one agreed upon, even if characterized by equivalent or higher value and quality.
