Please be mindful that the larger projects shipping weight can exceed several hundred pounds, which impacts shipping prices. Anything over 150lbs cannot be sent via regular mail, it has to ship freight.
Please allow 90 days for us to design and build (during high volume periods wait time may be 120 days) and send out handmade products; times vary based on volume.
We use the highest quality materials in all of our custom work. We do not cut corners and details are very important. Our process and attention to detail is unparalleled. You will receive high quality products when ordering from us!
We accept 60% to initiate the project and 40% before shipping the completed project to your location. The total cost of your project + shipping can be broken up into 2 payments. If you need more time or if you want to break the total amount into more than 2 payments, we may be able to arrange on a case by case basis. Please contact us for more information on this.
SHIPPING NOTICE: PLEASE NOTE THAT MOST OF OUR ITEMS SHIP FREE!
Please contact us about the shipping price for your order. Contour has partnerships with collaborators around the world including Costa Rica, Turkey, East Asia and East Africa. We cover all shipping costs and manage domestic and international shipments for all of our clients. We are located in Houston, Texas, so if you are in our area feel free to do a local pickup as well.
You must set an appointment for delivery within a certain time frame, typically within a week, after your project arrives to your city. If your item sits at the carrier’s terminal to long, without you scheduling a time for delivery or if freight company is not able to get in touch with you, the booked freight company may charge storage fees. We will not allow storage fees to be authorized on our account, unless paid in advance by customer. In cases where freight carrier cannot get in touch with you to schedule an appointment, we would give freight company permission to deliver your order to your requested destination. Your order will be left in the most secure spot available, on site of delivery location, in order for each party to avoid paying storage fees.
We can setup door to door delivery as well, which is the most preferred option, but it can be a bit more expensive than terminal pickup (normally $80 - $90 more.) Most freight carriers charge more when they have to deliver residential versus commercial, and will typically charge you a fee for using a lift to take freight off of truck, but this is all included with door to door delivery service. We have developed good relationships with our freight brokers and can offer our customers pretty competitive prices on shipping in general. Also, if you would like to speak to our freight brokers directly, we'll be happy to put you in touch to arrange your own shipping. We sometimes use private delivery drivers when available. When we use these delivery services, insurance is automatically added for you at no extra cost.
If you would like to purchase insurance on any freight please contact us for more information and pricing. Although 98% of our freight is shipped without being damaged in transit, in rare cases, it is possible that damage could occur by a carrier. In rare cases like this, WE cannot be financially responsible, however, we will file a damage claim with that carrier on behalf of customer for reimbursements for damage. It is up to the carrier to remedy these sorts of issues. Any item that leaves our warehouse is thoroughly inspected, we will not send out damaged items.
**PLEASE NOTE THAT TRANSIT TIMES ARE NOT GUARANTEED**
We can ship globally, but prices will vary and can be quite costly in comparison to domestic freight. Most international shipments will go by sea and can take 30-40 days to reach destination port, in some cases (If you would like to receive your item faster, air freight is available.) This is in addition to time it will take to build your custom item. You have several options with international shipping, either door to door, or door to port. If you decide to ship door to port, you may be subject to custom fees and taxes depending on the country. On all door to door international shipments, generally, you will not have to pay separate international custom fees. However, most countries do require duties and taxes to be paid, this varies depending on country. We cannot assume any financial responsibility for international customs, taxes, duties, storage etc. Customer is responsible for any and all charges occurred during international shipping.
*Contour does not offer refunds. Once the contract has been accepted by the client and work has been started or completed, we cannot offer any refunds because we've already invested money for project materials, labor and shipping.
*Contour does not provide custom dimensions to our clients. Only clients provide custom dimensions for their custom projects. Contour fulfills the client's order based on the information provided to us by the client. For built-ins and other large custom furniture projects, it is up to the client to confirm that their dimensions fit within the context of their space. It is also imperative for the client to confirm that the completed custom furniture can fit through their front door and can be delivered and installed in their home or business. Contour does not take any responsibility for custom pieces that are unable to be delivered or installed because they do not fit through the front door of the facility.
*We have a no cancellation policy, if we have already started on your project, that means we’ve already put time and money into it, therefore, those resources would not be able to be recouped. But, based on the circumstances there will be a 15% restocking fee if a cancellation is approved.*
*Any changes made to a project after its commencement might incur additional fees*
*Due to size, customization and high shipping cost, returns are not accepted and all sales are final, however we will work with you to resolve any issues that might arise.*
By ordering from us, we assume that you have read and agreed to the information provided above, please read through it carefully, as we want to ensure that you understand our shop policies and if we can assist or answer any questions or concerns, we’ll be happy to do so.
