Shipping / Delivery
Colony Design ships all domestic and international orders via Dawnwing Global Express. A tracking number will be sent to you (within 24hrs) via email once your order has been dispatched so you can track your item.
All international orders are currently done on an individual basis. Delivery times vary depending on the country and Customs issues and are therefore only indicative.
The customer assumes responsibility for any additional charges on rejected packages. All international packages can potentially incur customs charges upon their arrival in the destination country and those charges are solely determined by the arrival countries customs authorities. We cannot predict the amount of duties and taxes charged when using standard shipping. If you have any questions regarding duties and taxes in your country, please contact your local customs office.
Any shipping charges incurred due to exchange or returns for store credit are the responsibility of the customer.
We work hard to keep our shipping rates reasonable while still getting your items to you in the most efficient and reliable way possible, and we appreciate your understanding.
Please email accounts@colonydesign.co.za for any shipping questions or concerns.
