Art on Easy Terms
Buying Art on Your Own Easy Terms:
Whether new to buying art online, or a seasoned collector, at times you may find it advantageous to spread the cost. The good news is that, apparently since August 2015, UK law allows for up to twelve monthly instalments to facilitate larger purchases. Over the past few years I have run a number of successful instalment plans for some delighted clients - so have now decided to make it official.
I've set out below the terms I'm willing to offer, which I think you'll agree, should enable you to purchase art as easily as possible. I don't mind how small (or large!) an amount you wish to spread, and you can use the facility for original artwork or reproduction prints.
How the scheme works:
Art buying couldn't be simpler! All you need do is let me know what you wish to purchase, email or text me, telling me where you live (if not UK mainland), and I'll give you the offer price (including any current discounts). It's then up to you to decide how much deposit you wish to pay, and over what period you'd like to spread the cost. I will draw up an exact plan to confirm the arrangement, which forms the basis of our agreement, becoming active on receipt of your deposit. Meanwhile I hold the piece for you, and keep it safe until ready to release.
Unlike other art buying schemes, there are no credit checks necessary, as I'm not extending credit. You don't get the piece until fully paid for - which not only makes my life easier, but also saves you from extra hassle. (And even if you should encounter difficulties during the payment period, everything can be eased through happily in accord with your circumstances). There are a few terms and conditions in connection with the scheme, which I've set out below. If you have any queries regarding anything at all, don't hesitate to get in touch, as I'm always looking for ways to make it easier for clients purchasing my work.
What I offer you:
- Your chosen piece(s) of artwork, framed as you want (see note below).
- An agreed fixed price, including any discount on offer.
- Up to twelve months to pay.
- Free UK mainland carriage.
- Full 30-day no-quibble money-back guarantee (after receipt of artwork), if you're not entirely satisfied.
- Full refund of instalments at any time before completion, should you need to withdraw from the scheme for any reason.
- You may pay off the full amount at any time during the period, and receive your artwork.
All I ask is that you:
- Pay a deposit of at least 10% of the full purchase price.
- Spread your payments evenly over the period (other than the final payment, which might need to be a different amount.)
- Pay your instalments on 1st of each month.
- Make your final payment within twelve months of paying your deposit.
- Let me know in advance by email or text, should you be unable to meet any forthcoming instalment.
- Let me know in advance if you wish to pay off the full amount before the agreed term.
- Make all payments by bank transfer (UK clients), Circle Pay, or cheque.
- Please use your name as reference on the bank details.
N.B. Framing is offered in accord with the mouldings and materials I already stock. It will mostly be a choice between hand-painted off-white or customised gold (or possibly other metallic finish).
