Shipping and Returns Process
This article details our shipping, delivery, and return processes for both Austin, TX area customers and online customers.
All orders received during standard business hours (Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm CST), are processed and shipped within 2 to 4 business days, depending on the product purchased and shipment method required. Please allow additional processing time for orders received outside standard business hours and during national holidays.
An email will be sent to notify the customer if we are unable to ship their order in a timely manner (i.e. backorder due to out of stock product or issues with order received). At this time, the customer may choose to leave the backorder open to await inventory, or we will accept cancellation for a full refund.
Delivery within Austin, TX and surroundings local areas is handled by our local partnered delivery services. Orders placed over the weekend will be contacted the following Monday to coordinate delivery. Deliveries are typically scheduled within the week, unless specified otherwise.
Delivery costs are dependent upon distance from the World Interiors' Austin, TX Showroom, the amount of items for delivery, and other factors that may arise.
