My order has arrived damaged. What shall I do?

If your order has arrived visibly damaged on the outside, open the package in the presence of the carrier to see if there is any damaged item. If that’s the case, don’t sign the good reception guide that comes with the parcel, instead write those claims or damage. Please contact us immediately (24 h) by sending us a copy of the guide in question, by email. We can't accept complaints that do not meet these requirements.

The product I bought online doesn’t match the piece I received. Why?

Bocados de Praia®'s product images are only illustrative and may not match what the customer receives, due to its handmade nature. The same applies to the candles and tea-lights that will be sent in random colours, depending on the existing stock.

Do the shades come with the Lamps?

No. The shades in the pictures of the Lamps are only for illustrative purposes.
