Shipping costs

 

One of the things we really wanted for Gourmet Italy was for it to be very transparent with regards to the shipping costs and policies. No over-complicated tables or bad surprises happening at checkout time: we chose to apply a single fee by country and type of service, with the utmost clarity and transparency.

Shipping time

 

Shipments to Italy are made via express courier (SDA, or other courier equivalent). This ensures maximum reliability of delivery and a very tight timetable.

In general, orders received within 2pm will be handled and handed over to the courier on the same day, orders sent after 2pm will be handled same day, and handed over the day after.

 

Deliveries to Italy are, in fact, carried out within 1-2 working days after the carrier takes charge. Delivery time to islands might be delayed to 2-3 working days.

 

Orders accepted after 2pm on Fridays will be taken over by the courier on the following Mondays, in order to preserve integrity of the products and to avoid any risk of improper storage in the courier’s depots.

 

Shipments to Europe are also made via express courier (TNT or equivalent). Delivery times depend on the type of delivery choice:

 

- Standard delivery – 3-5 working days after the courier takes charge

 

- Express Delivery – 1-3 working days after the courier takes charge

 

 

Packaging

 

 

For us at Gourmet Italy, shipping is a matter of great attention. We believe that quality of the shipment is a particularly relevant parameter when it comes to the overall quality of an ecommerce service.

 

Similarly, for our shipping we chose only high quality custom-branded materials (boxes, tape). We went custom not only for aesthetic purposes, but especially to ensure integrity and authenticity of the shipment. What do we mean? If you were for instance to receive a package that is altered, broken, boxed or taped with non-customized "Gourmet Italy" material you could easily deduce that the package has likely been tampered with. We invite you, in such cases, to refuse delivery on the "tampered pack”; so for us to be able to provide an additional guarantee for our customers.

 

Another guarantee for our customers we are pretty proud of is that on the delivery of fresh produce (cured meats, cheeses or any item requiring low temperatures). We provide the orders containing this kind of products with the utmost attention: Gourmet Italy ships all low-temp items using insulated polystyrene containers and special ice gel units, which ensure freshness from our warehouse to your door. Furthermore, ice gel bags are re-usable: we invite you to store them in your freezer and employ them for any further cooling need.
