Covid - 19 Corona Virus

 The global situation with Covid -19 is causing delays with all shipments as each country is in some form of lock down. Although the situation differs in each region, there are certain changes to protocols that affect the global logistics network as whole such as:

  • Increased package screening including cleaning and spraying across various points in the journey. 
  • Social distancing and associated protocols related to how warehouse and logistics staff do their work.
  • Staff shortages either because of people getting sick or people not being available to work due to the risks associated with it.
  • Customs procedures changing which leads to an increased level of scrutiny for packages entering a country. 

 

The above changes to the way packages are moving around the world results in a much slower delivery turn around than was previously possible. Each delay compounds as the issues exist at each point in the journey. 

Please know that we are doing what we can to get orders through the system as quickly as possible, and we certainly appreciate our customers’ patience during this time, while the world adjusts to the situation.

    If one of our product listings indicates that a particular item is made from Stainless Steel, then it is forged from 316L Grade SS which is of the highest quality. It does not rust. It does not turn green. It does not cause rashes or allergic reactions. It is nickel free, lead free and cadmium free. You can buy with confidence!

     

    1. Do you have a return label for replacements and exchanges? Do you refund the cost to return the item?

    We care about our customers and are therefore offering a 30 day satisfaction guarantee on all products. That allows customers to return an item for a replacement or exchange. 

    Some of our orders do not have a return label on them. Please contact our customer service at support@ancientreasures.com in this case.

    When we send the replaced item, we do not charge any additional shipping or restocking fee. Please note however that the shipping cost will not be refunded.

    1. My product is held in Customs. Do you cover custom fees?

    Some orders can get held up in customs. Custom fees depend on the country items are being shipped to.

    Unfortunately, we will not cover any custom or extra fees in the country of destination and those are 100% the responsibility of the buyer. In our experience this is extremely rare.

    We suggest you look up your countries' taxes and customs rules to make sure you will not get charged upon the package arrival.

    1. USA orders: Order is in “Pre-shipment” status? How long does it take to update?

    Usually when USPS indicates that your order is in "Pre-Shipment", this means that the item was shipped from one of our warehouses abroad and did not yet arrive in the USA. It does however indicate that it has entered USPS database and that it is expected to make it's way to the US shortly.

    USPS tracking starts to show details once the product is in the USA. Occasionally there are data transfer delays between the shipping carrier and our tracking system. Please allow 7-10 business days for new tracking information to display.

     

    1. How long will it take to receive a re-shipped item?

    An order for reshipment will go through the same process as if it’s a new order and is subject to the same shipping times.

     

    1. Tracking shows 'Delivered' but I did not receive the item?

    This is a rare case that a shipment shows DELIVERED but was not received by the customer.

    This can happen if someone else has signed the package or it can be a mistake made by the shipping company.

    In this case, we advise you to ask other members of your family or neighbors to see if one of them could have signed it. It could also still be at your local post office awaiting for you to go and pick it up.

    USA Customers: You can also dial 1-800-ASK-USPS or contact your local Post Office. This has to be done by you at the delivery address. USPS will then initiate a Postal Investigation as Postal theft is a Federal Crime.
