Shipping and Pre-order FAQ

How do pre-orders work?

BoxThrones are big and heavy, so it's difficult for us to keep them in a warehouse. Instead, we operate on a pre-order basis and BoxThrones are made to order once every few months.

We have production "waves" where we pre-sell a limited amount of products before or after the boat has left, and it arrives in the UK/EU about 3 months after pre-orders close. Our Europe shipments have a very good chance of arriving 2-3 weeks earlier than anticipated.

Will I have to pay VAT?

VAT is included (free) for customers from the EU and the UK. Customers who don't live in the EU or the UK will need to pay VAT upon delivery by DHL.

      What is your refund policy?
      Because of the expense in shipping BoxThrones (we're sending hefty metal furniture across the world!), we cannot accept returns unless they are due to our mistake in picking/shipping (i.e., you received the wrong item or color in your order). We will send you a return label in this case and then reship the correct item to you once the error item has been returned to UPS.
