Shipping & Delivery

For the transport of the ordered goods, “Le Magasin de Lectures” relies upon the Belgian postal operator called “bpost” (http://www.bpost.be).

Packaging and shipping costs are your sole responsibility and, consequently, must be added to the selling prices of our articles, as specified on their respective description cards in our catalogue.

Of course, if you opt to take personally delivery by appointment of your order at our head­quarters, we will not invoice you for any packaging and shipping costs.

Packaging and shipping costs cover:

  1. the careful, robust, waterproof and appropriate packaging of the ordered items, in order to provide the best possible protection during transport;
  2. the delivery of the parcel at the client's address by the postal operator listed above in paragraph 1.

On the other hand, packaging and shipping costs do not include eventual customs taxes and import duties charged by your country of residence. These are, in any event, to be paid by you and you are solely responsible for submitting the appropriate declarations and payment as requested by the relevant authorities.

Packaging and shipping costs are a function of the weight of the package and the destination country.

In any event, we shall ship your order only after receipt on our bank account of your payment in full of the total purchase price (= selling price + packaging and shipping costs).

No earlier than one day after the recording of your payment on our bank account and, in any event but subject to your payment in full of the total purchase price, no later than 30 days after the dispatch of your online order form, we will ship your order.

As regards shipping and delivery, “Le Magasin de Lectures” has only an obligation of means, not an obligation of result.

In particular, once your parcel has been shipped, its delivery date depends upon the efficiency of the postal services. “bpost” guarantees the following delivery deadlines: next business day for Belgium in 97% of the cases; 2 to 4 business days for neighbouring countries of Belgium; 3 to 6 business days for the majority of the member countries of the European Union; 4 to 9 business days for the rest of the world. However, these delivery deadlines represent only an obligation of means and not an obligation of result. Consequently, they only represent estimates.

In most cases, your signature will be requested on delivery of your parcel. The latter will be brought to our attention by the postal operator and constitutes proof that you have received your parcel.

In any event, the information available from the online application software “Track & Trace” of “bpost” in connection with the unique bar code assigned to each parcel has an equivalent probative force regarding its tracking.

According to Article 56, §4 of the Belgian 6 April 2010 Act on market practices and consumer protection, the shipping of the ordered articles is at the seller's risk.

 See conditions and limits of this rule at Article 8 of our Terms of Sale (French version).

For packaging and shipping costs, “Le Magasin de Lectures” applies the cost grid below, with amounts listed in euros (€) and including VAT when applicable.

Warning! For particularly voluminous or heavy parcels as well as if you request specific shipping options, additional charges could apply in addition to the amounts specified in the said cost grid. In such a case, we will contact you to inform you of these additional costs and allow you to consider cancelling your order.
