SHIPPING OR DELIVERY

How will I receive my order?

Orders get shipped wordwide using signed-for insured international courier services

How long does it take from placing the order until it gets shipped?

Orders will ship the same day if payment has come through before 11am (GMT +1) from Monday to Friday, otherwise they will be collected the following working day. During holidays or weekends, orders will ship the nearest working day. It may happen that, due to a crazy activity or tiredness of our warehouse operatives (not so often), your order gets shipped the next day. We usually keep the status of the order updated so don’t worry, we know you can cope with an extra 24h wait and we will keep you informed.

In the case we can’t serve an item you have ordered, we would contact you to inform of the alternatives available.

Which courier will deliver my Aclam products?

We’re always looking for the best prices, but that usually depends on the country. Almost 100% of the orders sent to the US are shipped via Fedex. Europe & Other countries: UPS, FEDEX or TNT.

Where will I receive the package for my order?

The order will be shipped to the address stated as the delivery address during the checkout process. If you detect an address mistake after submitting the order, contact us as soon as possible, as modifications made too late may incur an additional expense which we won’t be held liable for.

How long does it take to receive my order?

We’re not fortune tellers, but we’ve done enough shipments to calculate an average transit time for the most frequent destinations. If you can’t see your country here it doesn’t mean we don’t ship there, but simply haven’t got enough data to tell. Contact us if further information is needed.

For countries outside the EU remember there is a customs process involved, where the load could be held for as long as they consider necessary. You can get an idea of transit times in this table:

If I am not at the address specified when the package with the order arrives, what will happen to the delivery?

After two attempts, with the respective notification left at the delivery address, the courier will send the package to the nearest branch of their offices during a period of time. If it hasn’t been picked up within the period of time specified on the failed delivery notification, the parcel will be returned to us or sent to a central warehouse where further expenses will be charged depending on the time spent there, which Aclam won’t be held accountable for. We keep track of the deliveries, so we will notify you if we detect a delivery attempt was unsuccessful.

Can I find out at any moment the status my order is in?

Yes. Notifications will be persistent for the length of the process. Once the payment gets confirmed and the warehouse has been notified, the order will enter the Preparation status. Once it leaves the warehouse it will enter the Sent status and you will be able to view the tracking information.

If you have any doubts during the process, don’t hesitate to contact the team and we will enlighten you.

Will I get my tracking number?

We will send you a tracking number to follow your parcel within the next 24 hours from the order’s collection. Don’t hesitate to contact us if it’s not the case and please check the Junk Email folder, as these are automated mails that your email service might detect as junk.

Shipping worldwide but… “My country is not on the list!

If you are trying to make an order but you can’t find your country when entering your shipping address, maybe you’re living on another planet, or maybe you’re the first person in your country that wants some Aclam products, what an honour! We will make you a free-gift if this happens! :) Just contact us and we will work to activate your country in our system so you can proceed normally.

Duties and customs

As mentioned in the transit time section, orders shipped outside of the EU are subject to local taxes and import fees, which we cannot foretell as each country has their own rules and taxation laws. We track all the orders we ship, making sure any requirement is covered, so that you don’t need to worry about any paperwork; but if your local customs authority requests a payment, there is nothing we can do about it, nor we’ll take responsibility for that expense, at the end of the day it is money for your government.

If the order does not arrive or in the event of any problems, what do I need to do?

It’s easier for you to contact us at guitars@aclam.cat or call +34 931 701 767, than panic running around like a headless chicken.

 

PAYMENT

How can I pay for my order?

You can make your payment using PayPal or a credit/debit card (VISA or Mastercard).

Is it safe to provide my bank details, card details or PayPal information?

All of the transactions are carried out using a secure service that encrypts the data. Each time you make a payment, there is a link with information regarding security measures. In addition, our security measures are in line with the Spanish legal regulations, in accordance with article 9 of Law 13/1999 LOPD (Spanish Personal Data Protection Act).

If you pay by card, does the cardholder have to be the same person as the purchaser?

It is not necessary.

Can I use my passport instead of the National Identity Document?

You can use your passport, but if you are resident in Spain, we recommend using your National Identity Document.

Can I pay in instalments? Is it possible to finance my purchase?

We do not offer financing or the possibility to pay in instalments.

 

RETURNS

What does the guarantee cover? What does it not cover?

Ours products are covered under guarantee for two years from the purchase date, under the conditions and supporting evidence regulated by current Spanish Legislation. The product guarantee will only be applicable by presenting the proof of purchase, which is the invoice or the receipt.

A product is covered under guarantee if it presents lack of conformity because it does not correspond to the product characteristics specified, is defective which prevents its normal use according to its purpose, or does not function as described. The purchaser has the right to have the article repaired or replaced (either the product or the faulty component, at the discretion of the manufacturer).

To make a claim, the purchaser must return the product to the store where it was purchased within one month from discovering the fault, and report the nature of the problem, the time and the circumstances under which it occurred.

If the product was purchased through our website, the purchaser can claim by sending us an email with the proof of purchase attached and a detailed report of the defect, the time and the circumstances under which it occurred and the corresponding supporting evidence.

Any repair or replacement covered under guarantee will be free of charge.

If it is proven that the defects reported by the purchaser are incorrect or have occurred more than one month before the date notified, or are not covered under guarantee according to current Spanish Legislation, a quote may be given for repair or replacement of the article out of guarantee.

The same procedure will be followed if the faults in the article are the result of unsuitable use, the product has been handled by third parties before the repair, has been incorrectly stored, or due to force majeure or any other cause not attributable to the manufacturer. Unsuitable use or incorrect storage also includes failure to follow the instruction manual or documentation included with the product and/or on the manufacturer’s website www.aclamguitars.com.

In general, the purchaser agrees to inspect the article purchased immediately following delivery and to inform about any possible lack of conformity as soon as possible, to avoid further damage, as a measure of goodwill.

How can I return the article I have purchased?

Please send an e-mail to guitars@aclam.cat explaining why you have returned the article and our sales department will contact you in order to process the refund.

If I do not like the product or I am not sure about it, can I return it?

You can return it within a period of 14 days following receipt of the order. If you return the item because you do not want it, please remember that the shipping costs are to be covered by the purchaser and the goods must be returned with the original packaging in good condition.

Do I need to pay for shipping if I return a product?

If there is a manufacturing defect, shipping will be paid by ACLAM (freight collect). If the goods are returned because the purchaser does not want them, the shipping costs are to be covered by the purchaser and the goods must be returned with the original packaging in good condition.

How many days will it take for me to find out if the guarantee covers the damage?

Once we have received the product, within 24-48 hours you will receive a response to inform you of the decision.
