Local Delivery & Shipping
Any items not carried out of store by purchaser or their agent, and any items that require special handling or care, must be packed and delivered by a professional service hired by purchaser.
For Tri-state we suggest Royal Touch Logistics, 646-318-1094, farther afield we will gladly supply a list of shippers.
In instances where Culture Object packs and ships directly as a courtesy, on behalf of purchaser, carrier insurance is required and deemed sufficient by purchaser, as is Culture Object's packing. Claims for loss or damage will be the purchaser's responsibility to undertake, at their risk. This service is offered at Culture Object's discretion and only for individual and small items.
