Shipping & Tax Info

Shipping is calculated during checkout.

Extra charges may apply for large or duplicate items (such as two baskets that do not fit inside one another). If this is the case, we will contact you with more information after you place your order.

Some oversized items, such as oil drum sculptures, are shipped on pallets. We will contact you with further details should your order require palletized shipping. For a shipping quote before placing your order, email us at info@swahilimodern.com or call us at 541-684-0688. Scroll to the bottom of the page for more detailed information.

We do not charge any sales tax. We are based in Oregon, a sales-tax-free state. 

Most orders are shipped using UPS Standard Shipping from our warehouse in Oregon and arrive within 3-7 business days. Please note that we cannot ship to P.O. Boxes.

We do not offer international shipping at this time and apologize for any inconvenience.

For expedited shipping or for a shipping quote to Alaska or Hawaii, please email us at info@swahilimodern.com with the product you wish to buy, along with your zip code.

Palletized Shipping: Shipping for oil drum sculptures starts at $200. We only charge the actual shipping costs and do not charge for "handling" on our end. If shipping costs less than $200, we will charge you less.

Shipping from Oregon to the Northeast is most expensive while shipping to California is least expensive. Shipping includes the cost for using a lift gate. Costs can sometimes be reduced if you can provide a business address.

Multiple sculptures can be shipped on a single pallet, typically at no extra cost.

We can provide a shipping quote at any time during the ordering process. Please email us at info@swahilimodern.com with your full shipping address to get started.

Once you have placed your order and agreed to the shipping cost, we will send you a Paypal invoice. The total will subtract any shipping you have already paid during the checkout process.

Returns: Items can be exchanged within 30 days of receiving your order as long as the items are in like new condition. We do not pay for the cost of return shipping or for the cost of shipping the new items. Please email us at info@swahilimodern.com to arrange your exchange. Once the returned items are received, we will ship the new items.

Note: Our most common reason for an exchange is that a basket is too large, so please double check the measurements for your space before ordering.

Lost packages are not our responsibility once they leave our warehouse. If you live in a high theft/urban area, please contact us to request signature required.

If you package is damaged in transit, contact us so that we can send you a replacement. Please include a photo.
