Shipping charges for goods delivered within Nairobi will incur a shipping cost KSh 250 and out of Nairobi (Upcountry) will incur a shipping cost KSh 350 except areas considered as hardship areas. 
 

Attic Books will not provide one shipping cost to orders that are split between multiple shipping addresses.
 

We reserve the right to choose the most appropriate shipping method according to the size and weight of your order, the location of your shipping address, and other factors.
 

Goods to Nairobi will be shipped within 48 hours after receipt and clearance (when all your items are available to ship) of an order and up to 3 days to the rest of Kenya.
Working hours are Monday to Saturdays 9am to 6pm and closed on Sundays and public holidays. Note that the shipping times are estimates and not guarantees. The timelines may be affected by natural occurrences e.g excessive rain, man-made events e.g violence or calendar events e.g sale rush. In the event of any of these events, Attic Books will advise the client accordingly.
 

Shipping times can be affected by factors over which Attic Books has no control, including incorrect delivery addresses, weather, courier and customs delays and Post Office delivery restrictions.
 

Attic Books is not responsible for receiving and processing an order with an incorrect shipping address. Please check your shipping address for accuracy. Please allow for additional time for all out of town orders. We have no control over certain delays.
 

Local customs and immigration agencies determine any duties or taxes that may be levied against packages arriving from outside the destination country. These additional fees are the responsibility of the recipient.
 

Attic Books cannot be held responsible for any costs incurred by the purchaser or recipient of orders due to shipment failure or late delivery.
 

Free shipping is available for orders above KSh. 2,500. The free shipping only applies to orders with a shipping address within Kenya. This will be done using Attic Book's preferred courier. Should the client prefer a different courier other than ones offered by Attic Books, the client will meet the delivery costs and it will be at the client's own risk. 
 

Attic Books is unable to provide free shipping on orders that are split between multiple shipping addresses.
 

A split order will not be considered as a single consignment and may be treated as a multiple order, hence attract additional courier charges.
 

Some orders might require sourcing of the items from a distributor, in this case the order might delay. While this is not the norm, Attic Books will always communicate to the customer about the same.
 

The client has an obligation to respond to any communication either written or oral in order to facilitate delivery. Failure to which, Attic Books will deliver the item to the nearest or most convenient town/county.
 

We reserve the right to choose the most appropriate shipping method according to the size and weight of your order, the location of your shipping address, and other factors.
 

The shipping fee applies to orders weighing between 0-5 kg, each additional kg or part thereof is charged an additional KSh 50.
