Below you will find an explanation as to where we can ship free of charge, when we must add a surcharge, and when we cannot ship at all.

Shipping of Everything Is ALWAYS Free Throughout the Contiguous United States

Why? The manufacturers and distributors of the globe and globe bar brands listed above are located in the United States and the shipping cost included in our retail price allows for delivery within the contiguous United States. You are welcome to contact us for a quote on additional shipping costs to other destinations. However, in our experience, it is our recommendation that it is often better value for money to purchase a slightly more expensive piece of Italian furniture with free shipping than to pay a steep price for shipping and delivery from the USA to Canada or even from within the country to Alaska or Hawaii.

If a Globe Is Made by Zoffoli (Italian) Shipping Is Free Throughout All of North America

Why? Globe furniture made in Italy ships free to the whole of USA and Canada. We import Italian bar globes directly from the manufacturer in Italy, and since the cost of shipping an item from Italy to any destination within North America is the same, we are able to offer free shipping to both Canada and the United States.

Restrictions: In rare cases, we are unable to offer free shipping to destinations outside of the USA. These mostly consist of Sale and Clearance items.

We ONLY Ship Globes Made by Zoffoli or Replogle to Destinations Outside of North America

When a globe is made by Replogle, please contact us for a quote regarding destinations outside of the contiguous United States.

Zoffoli Brand Globes:

  • Shipping to Countries in the European Union
    We apologize but at this time we are unable to fill orders for Italian bar globes to be delivered to EU member countries due to current VAT laws. EU customers must be charged Value Added Tax for purchases of Italian items and this can only be done by EU retailers. We recommend visiting ZoffoliGlobe.com, the Italian manufacturer’s online shop geared towards North American customers.

 

  • Shipping to Non-EU Member Countries in Europe
    Since non-EU countries do not need to be charged VAT, we are able to offer free shipping on orders for Italian bar globes to be delivered to European countries that are not in the European Union.

 

  • Shipping to Australia and New Zealand
    Sometimes we are able to offer free shipping to Australia and New Zealand, however there may be a surcharge of anywhere between $15 to $60 (USD) added to your subtotal for shipping – the amount depends on the weight and dimensions of the package(s). If you would like to know what that surcharge would be in advance, please contact us before you place your order.

 

  • Shipping to All Other Destinations WorldWide
    Please contact us for a quote.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

• Any completed online orders that do not qualify for free shipping will be held until you have received our quote and accepted the charges. We will never process an order or credit card charge before we receive verification from you.

• Price quotes are for shipping charges only and do not include brokerage fees, duties or customs taxes, value added tax (VAT) or other applicable charges required by the specific country of destination. BarGlobeWorld is unable to calculate the above-mentioned costs due to duty valuation adjustments in different countries. These, if applicable, will need to be paid upon delivery of merchandise to the destination country.

• Please note that we DO NOT ship to P.O. Boxes or A.P.O. Boxes.

• Due to daily exchange rate fluctuations, we only accept and quote prices in U.S. dollars.

DELIVERY TIME

Shipping Time

Italian globe and bar globe orders (merchandise by Zoffoli) to the United States and most other destinations are shipped by UPS, FedEx, USPS or DHL and usually arrive 5-10 business days from the day they are shipped. Shipments originating in the United States (orders by Waypoint Geographic, Replogle, Design Toscano and Old Modern Handicrafts) are en route 3-5 business days once shipped. We will send you a tracking number by email once the order is dispatched so that you can track the delivery of your shipment.

If you have difficulty tracking your shipment, please contact us at [email protected] or call us at 1-312-515-7157 and our customer service staff will be more than happy to assist you.

Pre-shipping

Allow 1-5 business days to complete the pre-shipping process. Please note that most Italian globes will be shipped to you directly from the manufacturer in Italy and sometimes executing an order may take longer if they are in the process of manufacturing the item. Bar Globe World begins processing your order within 24 hours, but global time differences and country-specific holidays may sometimes also cause a slight delay.
Please note that some world globe and drinks cabinet models are very popular and are consistently being produced to meet demand, and some merchandise may be special order items or have a more complex manufacturing procedure than others. In case of the latter there will be a notice on the product description page informing you of possible additional production time.

DAMAGED OR DEFECTIVE GOODS

Please inspect your shipment upon delivery to ensure there is no damage. If any items have been damaged, contact us immediately within 72 hours so that we can assist you in the replacement of the damaged part of the order and/or filing a claim with the appropriate carrier. Failure to do so may result in not being able to replace the damaged item(s).
 
Photographs of the damage will be required.
 
Please refer to our Damaged and Defective Goods Policy for details.

BACK ORDERS

Back orders are rare at BarGlobeWorld. If a globe bar is shown to be “out of stock,” it is only because the manufacturer or distributor is out of stock as well.
In the very unlikely event that neither BarGlobeWorld nor the manufacturer has an ordered item in stock, it will be placed on backorder. We will notify you within 48 hours of order placement and inform you of the expected delivery date if this ever occurs.
Upon notification that an item has been back ordered, you will have the option to: wait for the back ordered item to be shipped to you; order something else instead to be shipped immediately; receive store credit toward a future purchase; get a full refund.
