Below statements may be affected by carrier safe handling policies and local / federal mandates:
COVID-19 Shipping Delays:
Expect 6 to 10 weeks additional delivery times on First Class International packages and 1 to 2 weeks on any express shipping options.
Undelivered packages are not considered lost until 3 months after shipping.
Many countries have imposed restrictions on international goods and / or are experiencing slow downs due to limited postal staff. Some basic information can be found here: US Postal Service International Service Disruptions
Please check with your local postal service for the most up to date information for your area.
Delivery and Customs Fees:
All customers outside of the USA are subject to product restrictions and additional Customs fees upon delivery.
All items exported are subject to local government tariffs, Customs, VAT and final carrier delivery fees. These fees vary from location to location and are due upon delivery. These fees can often exceed 30% of your order total and are not included in the shipping fees. Check with your local Customs authority for fees estimation
Certain items cannot be shipped outside of the United States. Props, tombstones, bulky items and items that contain flammable liquid will not be shipped outside of the US. Additional restrictions have been implemented due to COVID-19 and vary by country.
Many of these items are identified with the following notice: Important: (Item) ships to locations within the USA only.
These items are either not allowed to be shipped by air transport or are too bulky to ship using our shipping carriers or present cost restrictive logistical challenges.
If a restricted item is ordered and cannot be shipped to your location the item will be excluded from your parcel and refunded.
