LOCAL DUTY AND TAXES - EU (POST BREXIT)
As the UK has left the EU there can be some extra costs involved, but we will not be making it difficult for you to enjoy out bags.
- All EU deliveries are DUTY and VAT paid (for orders under 140 euro's)
- We cover all local VAT charges
- This means the price we quote is the ONLY price you pay
- NO EXTRA CHARGES AT THE POINT OF DELIVERY
LOCAL CUSTOMS AND IMPORT TAX - OUTSIDE OF THE EU
Depending on you own Counties local taxes and import rules - our system will give you the option to pre-pay these taxes at the point of purchase (shopping basket) This option is given before you complete the purchase.
If you choose to pay the customs or import duties upon delivery, it will be charged once the parcel reaches its destination Country, and these charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel.
SHIPPING OPTIONS - DEPENDING ON YOUR TIMINGS
EU and REST OF WORLD
We offer 2 shipping options -
1.FREE SHIPPING - Using the local regional Postal Service. This service is not fully tracked along the way, but each local postal service offers partial tracking, such as when the delivery has reached your Country, or when its its going out for delivery locally. Please check the status day to day.
Despatch times usually takes 5-10 working days within Europe, and 10-20 working days further afield.
Although it has been know to take longer for Countries such as Mexico and South America in general. For deliveries to South America and Mexico we strongly suggest that you use our DHL service as (for example) we are sometimes experiencing 2-3 week delays after the package arrives at the Mexico sorting office.
Once your parcel has arrived in your Country, it will be passed on to an Internal postal service, according to standard delivery procedures.
2. DHL Fast service - The cost can be higher but its very quick and secure. We make a contribution to the DHL cost - and ask you to make a partial contribution to the total shipping costs. These charges are displayed in the shopping basket before you make your final payment.
- This service is fully trackable and you will be informed along the way
- EU 2-3 days.
- USA/Mexico/Australia/India - usually 5 days
