Shipping charges listed below are indicative and may vary. The courier companies charge by the weight and dimensions of the package.

On any air shipments, and on all orders shipped outside the 26 contiguous states, there may be additional freight charges on some items. You will be notified prior to shipment. Typical orders posted on Himalaya Fine Art normally ship via FedEx surface delivery. Additional charges may apply on shipments to Andaman & Nicobar and Lakshadweep Islands. Contact us for information.
Your order to a physical address within the contiguous states of India will normally be shipped via FedEx Surface. Allow 2 business days for order processing, plus 1–5 business days once merchandise leaves our premise. Orders placed on weekends or holidays will not be shipped until the following business day.
We aim to deliver all orders within 8 days of receipt of the order, but cannot be held responsible for delays in delivery beyond our control. All shipping methods require a complete physical address. We do not ship to APO/FPO & P.O. Box addresses. Express orders must be placed before 12:00 pm IST. Express shipments are expedited through our order process. After receiving your order, Customer Service department will contact you by email or phone to inform you of shipping services and cost. We will ship non-ground shipments only after we have received your approval. All aerosols and hazardous materials are shipped via Ground Services ONLY. Expedited shipping options for these items are not available, and will be changed to standard service. Items marked with this symbol are oversized – shipping rates for these items are based on Volumetric-Weight. An oversize item is a large (and/or heavy) item which can be shipped via standard carrier services (DTDC, Fedex, etc.) but incurs a higher shipping charge due to the size and/or weight of the item. Oversize items include, but are not limited to:
  • Drafting tables
  • Floor easels
  • Large canvasses (above 36 x 36 inches)
Orders containing items ordered in large quantities will also be considered oversize. (E. g. clay and other casting materials, wood items such as stretcher strips, binder boards, gallon containers of any product, paper pads, etc.). Since the "Actual Shipping Costs" that may be applicable cannot be calculated or estimated until the order has been picked and packed as they are determined by carrier and are calculated with the size of the package, weight of the package, and distance. You will be notified via email to view the extra shipping cost for your order which will be displayed on the "Order Status Details" page. Once an order is placed for an oversize item, we will contact you with shipping rate information and delivery details prior to processing your order. Any promotions for free freight do not apply toward orders with oversize items. Expedited shipping methods are not recommended for oversized items.
Items marked with this symbol may be drop shipped from the manufacturer. Additional charges apply. Factory Direct shipping charges may depend on destination as well as weight. Please allow additional time for delivery. Some items shipped directly from the factory may not be available for express shipping. You will be notified if the item you ordered cannot be shipped express. Although items shipped from the factory incur additional shipping charges, the cost of the items themselves applies toward the Rs. 10000 free shipping offer. For instance, suppose you order a Rs. 6000 easel that is shipped direct from the factory, plus Rs. 5000 in items that are stocked in our premise. You must pay an additional FOB charge for the easel. However, since your total order is over Rs. 10000, the items that are stocked qualify for free shipping from our distribution center. Thus, it is to your advantage to order additional stocked items with an order that requires factory shipment. Any promotions for free freight do not apply towards orders with drop ship items. If you would like to know exact charges for factory shipment and special handling to your destination, we encourage you to place your order via email. Himalaya Fine Art telephone number is easy to find at the bottom of every page on the website.
A freight truck item is an extremely large (and/or heavy) item which requires the use of a freight truck. Freight truck items are not deliverable by standard carrier services (DTDC, Pafex, etc.) and therefore cannot be expedited (surface shipping only). Freight truck items include, but are not limited to:
  • Studio easels
  • Large canvasses
  • Large drafting tables
  • Studio-size furniture (watercolor stations, etc).
Orders containing items ordered in large quantities may also require the use of a freight truck. Actual freight truck shipping charge varies based on size, weight, destination, and delivery type and delivery options. Truck shipment delivers your item to the trucker's port in your locality. While all carriers establish their own rates for delivery, our shipping department selects the best carrier based on service, price, and availability. A physical address and phone number are required for delivery. The minimum charge is Rs. 2000. You might consider consolidating two or more orders to make the most of the minimum charge. Schools should allow three weeks delivery time for truck shipment orders placed from June 15 through August 15. International orders ship by FedEx. The method and cost are determined by items orders, cost, weight, size and destination. Some items cannot ship outside of the India . This includes any hazardous or flammable materials.
