Shipping & Returns

When will my order arrive?

When you check out, a list of shipping carriers and their associated costs and shipping windows will be displayed . Please add this duration to our processing time of 2-4 business days to estimate your final delivery dateOnce your order has shipped, you will receive an email containing your order details, estimated delivery time, and tracking number. Your tracking number will activate to show movement once the parcel is scanned in at the first courier-specific sorting facility. This is generally within 24 hours of receiving your shipping notification. We strive to meet the estimated delivery window but cannot guarantee that such estimate can be met. If you urgently need an item delivered within Hong Kong, please WhatsApp us for same day arrangements or for private pickup at our warehouse. 

Do you ship furniture?

Furniture shipping via our website is currently available for Hong Kong only. We will contact you within 1-2 business days to arrange a delivery appointment for your furniture within 10 business days of your order placement and acceptance. We use a third party logistics partner, such as GogoX or LalaMove, to deliver furniture. Our Current Service Area is Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and most of the New Territories. We do not service the Outlying Islands. Please review our Furniture Delivery Terms before placing an order, as penalties maybe be incurred for inaccurate destination information, late cancellations and absentee receivers.

Why are shipping restrictions applied to some products?

There are a variety of reasons certain products don't ship to your destination, chiefly size. If you are an international client interested in an item that doesn’t currently ship to your country, please contact us for custom transport solutions. For any other specific shipping needs including providing your own logistics options, the Permanent Resident team is always available.

When will my Preorder item Ship?

Shipping windows are clearly displayed on each Preorder product page under the 'Add to Cart' button. The item's estimated shipping window is also reiterated on the follow up email you will receive after your order is confirmed. When your Preorder item arrives in stock, Permanent Resident will send a shipping confirmation and your shipping process will continue as a normal order.

Will I be charged a delivery fee?

You pay your delivery fees directly at checkout.

Will I be charged any duties or taxes?

Taxes and duties applicable to your order depend on the shipping country of your order:

- Orders from Hong Kong SAR are not subject to taxes and duties.

- Orders from countries served on a Delivery Duty Paid (DDP) basis will incur relevant import tax and duty and will be included in the final purchase price. This one-step process is for your convenience. Please note that the import tax and duty charges would be passed to the relevant local Customs authorities and are therefore non-refundable in the event of a return. You will only be charged taxes and duties once; Permanent Resident will cover the cost of taxes and duties for replacements on damaged items.

- Orders from countries served on a Delivery Duty Unpaid (DDU) basis will only be charged for the price of the product(s) purchased (excluding taxes and duties) and the delivery costs. Customers will be responsible for the payment of all import tax and duties levied by the country to which the products are shipped and payment of the said tax and duties is necessary for the release of the products ordered from the Customs on arrival. For customers that have an opt-out at checkout, tax and duty will be charged upon the shipment's arrival in the destination country. Local sales tax will be charged on all orders at checkout in selected states where applicable. The associated courier will contact customers about the details of any import duty to pay. We advise you to contact your local customs authority to determine the cost of import tax and duties of your order prior to your placing orders with us. If you failed to pay Import Charges or refused to accept Products otherwise than in accordance with the return procedure under these General Terms and Conditions (including not providing the documentation required by Customs), in each case resulting with the Products being returned or needing to be returned, then you may be liable for the return delivery costs and may not be reimbursed or refunded for delivery costs paid by you for making the delivery to you. We may also charge you with additional direct or indirect charges resulting from said failure or refusal, to the extent permitted under applicable law. It is your responsibility as the customer to report any purchases of tangible personal property that have not been taxed by Permanent Resident and pay use tax on those purchases unless exempt under local state law. Please be aware that if you don't choose to pay the import taxes we reserve the right to charge any additional costs incurred by Permanent Resident to you.
