Restocking fees may apply on a case by case basis. Due to the high cost associate with shipping from Nunavik we cannot refund shipping costs.

Every product for sale on this site is on display in our gallery in Kuujjuaq. If the product sells in store before we can change it online, we will refund you in full  . We use a state of the packing system to package our art for shipping. In the unlikely event a piece does gets damaged during the shipping process the art must be returned at the buyers expense. We must be notified within 24 hours of accepting the package. We will then proceed on the buyers behalf with a insurance claim through the shipping company.

Tivi Galleries will NOT be responsible when shipping Inuit Art via Canada Post or with a courier company. The Gallery does its best to package sculptures with a state of the art expanding foam system, bubble wrap (when needed)and cardboard but if unfortunately, in the unlikely event it does break we  will not be responsible for the breakage or damage.

All original over sized sculptures must be shipped in a custom built crate – please contact the Gallery for more information about this process.
