Pick-up and return of items is the responsibility of the borrower.
Items returned with any damage will be billed at net price.
Any items not returned after 15 business days will be considerd sold and billed to the credit card on file with the signed Authorizatoin Form. Items are thereafter subject to our return policy (below).

Local Delivery & Shipping
We pack smaller items for hand carry-out, and otherwise refer clients to a selection of packers and shippers as we are unable to pack and ship ourselves due to space and logistics.
Any items not carried out of the gallery by purchaser or their agent, and any items that require special handling or care, must be packed and delivered by a professional service hired by purchaser. We maintina a list of reputable packers and shippers for referal.
For tri-state we suggest Royal Touch Logistics, 646-318-1094

In instances where Culture Object packs and ships directly as a courtesy, on behalf of purchaser, carrier insurance is required and deemed sufficient by purchaser, as is Culture Object's packing. Culture Object will be held harmless and claims for loss or damage will be the purchaser's responsibility to undertake, at their risk. This service is offered at Culture Object's discretion and only for individual and small items.

International and Long Distance Shipping
Three white glove, full service packing and delivery quotes will be provided to the customer, which the customer can then choose from and engage directly.
In instances where Culture Object, as a courtesy, on behalf of customer, aranges and make payment for packing through our preffered art handler and shipping through our agent, Culture Object will be held harmless for any loss, damage or other liability.
Be aware that the timeline for this process is 3-6 weeks if it requires the coordination of seperate packers and shippers. A white glove all-in-one option is available at a premium for faster service.
