Terms and Conditions of Contract

No work will begin without deposit


A minimum deposit of 50% is required at time specimen is received. Deposits are non-refundable and considered handling, shop, prep, and storage fees. Any animal in our possession without a deposit after 90 days becomes the property of Smiley’s Taxidermy and may be sold, mounted or disposed of without notification or compensation to the customer.

All game must be legally taken and tagged. We are not responsible for loss or damage in tanning or transit. We are not responsible for losses due to fire, theft, vandalism, natural disasters or mechanical failures.

We reserve the right to make reasonable changes and substitutions in order to complete your mount. If this results in additional charges, we will attempt to notify you prior to making any changes.

Upon completion, the full balance is due and mount must be picked up within 30 days of notification. If the balance has not been paid within 30 days, client will be charged $25 per month/per mount for storage. After 90 days, mount may be placed for sale for the balance of charges due. No mount leaves until all charges are paid in full.

Please note that you have not been promised a completion date. Any completion date you may have been given is approximate, since many factors may affect our work.
