For expenses between 0 and 80€ shipment costs are 6,90€.
For expenses over 80€ shipment is free.

1.2 ABROAD
Shipments toward foreign countries are carried out by SDA courier and are envisaged only toward the European Union; they have a fixed cost of 20,00€.
1.3 Merchandise delivery is carried out to the address indicated by the customer on the order form. The customer is the only person in charge of the given address for the shipment.  
1.4 The times of delivery are:

ABROAD: 4/5 days from the payment reception
1.5 Deliveries will be carried out from Monday to Friday, in the standard working hours, except        national holidays.
1.6 Delivery appointment: choosing this option the courier will contact you in order to define date and time of the delivery. Keep in mind that this service implicates an increase of 3€ on the final cost. Remember to supply a surely reachable phone number.
1.7 If you don’t think you will be at the given address at the delivery time, you can specify your working address. Delivery can be carried out at a friend, a relative or a neighbor address as well.
1.8 In case of failed delivery caused by recipient absence at the given address, the courier will leave a card to certificate the delivery attempt. The information for the customer to contact the courier will be shown in order to define an appointment for the second delivery attempt. After 2 failed attempts, the package will be sent to a stock center and it will be possible to pick it up at the courier office of your area. If this attempt will not have a positive outcome too, the purchased product will be sent back to Le Querce. After 30 days from the shipment to Le Querce, the contract will be considered ceased and the purchase order revoked in conformity with art. 1456 c.c. Le Querce will proceed at the refunding of the amount paid by the customer excluding the costs of the failed delivery as well as the return to Le Querce and the storage charges. The sale dissolution and the refund amount will be communicated to the customer via e-mail. The refund amount will be credited to the payment account used by the customer for the purchase or via bank transfer. If, before the 30 days elapsed, the customer asks to receive the purchased product again, Le Querce will proceed at the new shipment subject to charges consisting of: the product costs, the return to Le Querce costs and the storage costs.
1.9 The recipient is entitled to verify the delivered product conditions. If the package presents break or hit signs, tampering/alteration, we encourage the customer to accept the package from the courier in “RECEIVED UNCHECKED” terms. In case the merchandise inside the package is damaged, we ask the customer to communicate it with contact module. In the communication it will be necessary to list the damaged products, attaching the delivery paper with the caption “GOODS RECEIVED UNCHECKED” , and if possible attaching photos of the damaged material. In case the package had been accepted without the “RECEIVED UNCHECKED” terms it will not be possible, in any case, to proceed against the courier and we will not be able to send back the damaged merchandise.
1.10 In case of delivery impediment due to circumstances beyond our control Le Querce will proceed to contact the customer via e-mail in order to inform him about delivery delays.
