Delivery by express delivery
Standard delivery will be in the following hours: from 9.00 to 13.00; and from 14.00 to 18.00, working days from Monday to Friday. The courier delivers a first time without notice. If the customer is absent, the courier leaves a note and attempts delivery within the next 24 hours. In case of further absence, a new note will be left and the customer will be contacted by the courier for the third attempt. If this attempt is also unsuccessful, MyAreaDesign customer service will contact you to arrange details for delivery, possibly adding costs for warehousing. If even the fourth attempt is not successful, the goods will be returned to I Fasano S.r.l. unipersonale with the consequent cancellation of the order. The customer will be refunded the purchase price minus all costs incurred (transport, warehousing, transfer, administration fee.)
Delivery by furniture specialized transporter
If the goods are not suitable for shipping by express courier (very delicate items or those needing to be moved in a proper way because of their size and weight such as tables, sofas, armchairs, marble or glass items, beds, outdoor beds, large kitchen hoods and so on), MyAreaDesign delivers the goods by a furniture specialized transporter that delivers more slowly but is able to complete deliveries by avoiding any damage or to move parcels properly. In this case the couriers cannot be considered as fast express couriers. Actually, transit time can be until 3 weeks and it is not possible to give a track number. However, delivery is done after a telephone notice and always only on the street level (outside) on truck tail lift, except in case of different agreements. Therefore, when an in-house or on the floor delivery is required, it is necessary to ask for a tailored quotation.
