Once a customer has received an INVOICE from Worlds Away, that order CANNOT be cancelled, as it has been shipped out for delivery.


FREIGHT CHARGES: Freight charges are based on weight and are charged at an appropriate % based on location and service level. Due to the fragility of our products, some items must be shipped white glove delivery ONLY, and these items will not fall into the same % category as other items. Any delivery address that is requested to be changed after items have left our warehouse will be subject to extra shipping charges. Estimated shipping charges for strict residential and business addresses may either be obtained by ordering through our website, www.worlds-away.com, or by emailing shipping@worlds-away.com. White glove only delivery items or locations can only be estimated by our shipping department at the previously listed  email address. For special delivery quotes, such as white glove delivery, please email shipping@worlds-away.com and include the list of items you wish to order along with a COMPLETE delivery address (phone number included). We will respond with a quote as soon as possible.

All customer returns should be insured in order to cover possible damage on the return to Worlds Away. A copy of the tracking number should be emailed to claims@worlds- away.com.
