At Michael Powell Art, we are aware of, and take very seriously, the security and privacy issues surrounding the use of payment facilities via the Internet. As a result, we have taken every precaution, including the use of Secured Socket Layer (SSL) encryption for the transmission of all sensitive credit/debit card and payment information details. Our SSL server is certified by Thawte, a Public Certificate Authority. Thawte will only issue Digital Certificates to those servers which meet stringent security requirements.

3. Placing an Order

Placing an order cold not be any simpler. Browse our online shop and click ‘Buy’ next to any items that you want to purchase. This places the items into your shopping basket, which can be reviewed at any point. When you are happy with the contents of your shopping basket you can proceed to the checkout where you will enter your delivery and billing details. If you register as a Member of this website, you will only need to enter your shipping and billing details once. As we do not store your credit card details, these will need to be entered each time you make a purchase.

All prices quoted on this website include VAT where appropriate. For orders billed outside the EU, VAT will be deducted from the order total at checkout.

After you have placed your order, we will send a confirmation email to you summarising the order. We accept payment in sterling by Switch, Visa or MasterCard.

When we receive your order, we carry out a standard pre-authorisation check on your payment card to ensure there are sufficient funds to fulfill the transaction.

If you are not sure about placing an order online, please feel free to speak to us on the telephone instead. We can be reached on +44 (0) 2920 496000 Monday - Friday 9am- 5pm GMT.

4. Delivery

All items for sale are usually kept in stock. If for any reason we cannot dispatch your order within 5 working days (excluding weekends), we will notify you by telephone or email. You will be given the opportunity to cancel the item(s) out of stock, or will be given an expected date of delivery.

Our standard delivery charges can be viewed by clicking here.

When specifying a delivery address, please bear in mind that many of the items we supply will not fit through a standard letterbox, so if you are not at home when delivery is attempted you may need to pick them up from your local sorting office. For your convenience, we offer the option to specify a different delivery address from that used for billing.

If your order is lost or damaged in transit, please let us know promptly.

We always aim to achieve 100% customer satisfaction. We are continually expanding to provide a larger range to give our customers more choice.

If you wish to return an item which is not suitable or no longer required, you should call us within 7 days of receiving the item to inform us and should then return the item in original packaging, undamaged within 7 days from the date of the call. You should include paperwork with the original order number stated. We recommend using Royal Mail’s parcel service in all cases.

When the item arrives with us we will refund your card for the cost of the item in full but NOT the cost of returning the item to us. You can choose to have a replacement item (if available).

The goods must be unused and we will review the condition of the goods before issuing a refund or replacement, and contact you if the claim is in doubt.
