Successful Shipment Delivery
Upon delivery of every order, Clients are asked to inspect the box carefully BEFORE signing for the delivery.
If for any reason the box looks tampered with, either sign for the package with reservations or refuse the package. In the event that the box has been signed for with an unauthorized signature or there is evidence that the package has been tampered with, open a claim immediately with the courier and contact BIGBIGSHOES at info[@]bigbigshoes.com
If, for any reason, packages are not able to be successfully sent to the shipping address provided by the client at the time of purchase, there is a risk that the pack will be returned to BIGBIGSHOES at the clients expense. These fees will then be deducted from any eventual reimbursements or refunds to the client.
If the package is not successfully delivered to the Client’s address due to a lack of cooperation from the client (wrong telephone number, wrong address, absent at address, non-compliance with import regulations) as per the BIGBIGSHOES commercial agreement, the package may risk being sent back to Cyprus at the Client’s expense including any import fees that may be assessed upon re-entry to Cyprus. These fees will be deducted from any eventual reimbursement.
Shipment Documents for Exotic Pelts
Shipments from BIGBIGSHOES that contain an item made from an exotic pelt destined outside of the European Union by law require an extra document called C.I.T.E.S. (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna).
This document acts as a passport for the item and explains that the item comes from an animal bred specifically for commerce and not taken from the wild. For more information please see: www.cites.org .
The documents are issued from the Fishing Wildlife and Game Custom’s Office and take 14 days to be processed.
To obtain the documents, CITES requires the fiscal invoice and thus the Client’s Credit Card WILL BE DEBITED BEFORE SHIPMENT.
Due to standard processing time for the documents, the shipment will be delayed.
BIGBIGSHOES shipments are not insured against theft and accidental damage occured after being handles to the shipping company.
