Shipping is available worldwide. Obtaining shipping quotes and all financial transactions regarding shipping are the responsibility of the buyer. It is also the responsibility of the buyer to arrange pick-up at Founddesign.
We can provide dimensions and weight estimates so you can get an accurate shipping quote. We will crate items for shipping. The cost of crating is based on size of the item to be shipped and the complexity of the crate’s interior structure. The cost will be added to the invoice for your purchase. Please contact Founddesign to get a quote for crating your purchase.
