The Brexit transition period ends in 2020, and new rules will be effective from 2021 onwards. As RoyalDesign is a Swedish business, this will affect your shopping with us in the following ways:
1) Shipment and delivery
Shipping times are expected to increase due to the additional steps required by our carriers. Expect that your order will take a little longer to arrive than previously. The estimated shipping times for each carrier have been updated in the list further down on the page. It is however hard to predict exactly what the effects on shipment on delivery will be, and unexpected issues or delays may arise as a result.
2) VAT and tariffs
Prices displayed on RoyalDesign will continue to be displayed including VAT, and RoyalDesign will pay any import tarriffs which arise.
We're continuously working on improving and broadening our delivery options to make shopping with us more convenient. To offer the best packaging and the quickest delivery your order may be sent in two or more shipments. This will be highlighted in the tracking information that you will receive with your tracking email. Your parcels may arrive at different days and times, but you will always be able to track the shipment on the shipping carriers website.
1) Order confirmation
Shortly after placing an order, you will receive an order confirmation with information on your purchase, as well as the current stock status for all items.
2) Delivery update
If your delivery were to be delayed we will notify you by E-mail with a new estimated lead time from our supplier. The same applies if your products were to be out of stock with our supplier.
3) Shipping confirmation
When your order is shipped from our warehouse you will receive a delivery confirmation by E-mail. In the shipping conrifmation you will receive a tracking link, so that you can follow your order's progress all the way to your home.
4) Text message-notification
Finally, you will be notified by text message (SMS) when your delivery is ready to collect or when it's out for home delivery. Your parcels may arrive at different days and times, but you will always be able to track the shipment on the shipping carriers website.
The delivery times specified for each shipping company below refer to the time after your order has left our warehouse and been handed over to a carrier. Please note that we have a handling time to prepare and package your order before then. You can find details regarding our handling times in our terms & conditions. We are unfortunately unable to affect delivery times after we've handed over your order to a carrier.
These times are the estimates that are provided to us by the carrier and not a guaranteed delivery date. Note that deliveries to rural areas may take longer.
