These restrictions will vary according to the postal regulations of the country in which the address is located. Contact your local post office to verify size and weight restrictions for your country.
Once an international order is received, it will usually ship within 2-3 business days and delivery will occur within approximately 7-21 business days depending on delivery location. All tracking information will be e-mailed to the e-mail address provided with the order. Transit times are approximate and can vary depending on customs clearance and collection of applicable carrier charges and international duties/taxes.
Purchasers are responsible for all international charges such as duties, taxes and brokerage fees. They will be collected at time of delivery and are not calculated in the provided shipping charges.
Please note that all international sales are final and no returns will be accepted. Free Shipping offers will only apply to shipments within the 48 contiguous US states.
