Contact Information

Please note: Due to the nature of working within a studio, and spending large time being rather messy, the mornings from 9am - 12.30pm are the main part of the day for all business-related communication and correspondence. This includes getting artworks, and products packaged and ready for shipping, intrastate/interstate and internationally. After that time, work is conducted within the studio. Of course, we do check at other times during the day, and will always make every effort to reach out to you in a timely manner.

Consumer Guarantees

Change of Mind

We want you to be 100% happy with your purchases from RIMAAD. However, we are a unique art-based business, so there are reasonable boundaries around this. Due to the nature of the work we do as working artists, and the nature of our offerings with regard to both Original Artworks, and Signed (Limited-Edition Prints), we do not offer refunds for change of mind. As previously stated, please choose carefully.

Minor Problem

Minor issues can arise when making purchases online. If you do have any problem, or question regarding any purchase you have made, let us know asap at: info@rimaad.com. We will always do everything possible to make your customer journey with us enjoyable, and we have always found that good communication assists both sides, where any issue may arise.

Again, please contact us asap at: info@rimaad.com

A Major Problem

A major problem is considered to be one where a product that you have purchased cannot be fixed, or is too difficult to fix. Despite never having had an issue over 10 + years of packaging and shipping paintings, there is always the chance that a painting could be destroyed during the shipping process. One of the ways in which we mitigate that possibility is to know and trust our shipping company, Total Transport Solutions (http://totalfreightsolutions.com.au/). This is a door to door service in Australia, provided with care, and integrity. In this instance, if we do not have a suitable replacement, or an alternative artwork that you like, a refund will be given.

For queries on this matter, please email us at: info@rimaad.com. Please note, insurance comes at an extra cost to you, but we can arrange that for you. We, will not take responsibility for any kind deliberate misuse, accident or damage caused to original artworks under any set of circumstances.
