Do I have to pay customs and import charges?

Any customs or import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel. Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges, and cannot tell you what the cost will be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country.

We recommend contacting your local customs office for current charges before you place an order.

Please be aware that your parcel can be also delayed by customs and subsequent charges can be applied. We have no control over this, and cannot supply any details why or for how long your parcel will be delayed.

When will I know my order has been shipped?

As soon as you have received your 'Dispatch Confirmation' email from us with your DPD or UPS tracking number, you will know it has left our warehouse on this date.
