INTERNATIONAL ORDERS (Including non-contiguous USA shipping destinations)
welcome our international customers and gladly ship to destinations worldwide. So that we may handle your order efficiently, please note the following guidelines.
International Shipping Methods and Costs -- We ship via insured US Postal Service (usps) for all international orders. Options, rates and transit times vary depending on the destination country as well as the size/weight of the package. The international shipping charge must be manually calculated and will not be added automatically when using our on-line store. Before placing an international order
-- it is best to request a specific shipping price quote first at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please include a description of the order items (example -- "one complete skateboard" or "set of 4 wheels"), the destination country and your preferred method of payment (credit card or paypal) when you write.
Non-Contiguous Destination Shipping Costs -- Additional shipping cost may be assessed for shipping destinations outside of the continental USA (including Hawaii, Alaska and US terrirtories abroad) for larger packages that would typically be sent via ground carrier. Shipping adjustment -- if necessary -- will be determined upon receipt of order and we will notify via email shipping options and amount due to complete the order.
International Order Placement Instructions-- International orders may still be placed through our webstore, however, an additional shipping charge will be due to finish processing the order for shipment. The shopping cart DOES NOT calculate international shipping (so the amount on the order is not the final shipping cost but will be factored in when determining the additional amount due).
For credit card orders, the additional shipping charge can often be re-billed directly to the credit card used. If using paypal, complete your order through the store and await receipt of a paypal payment request from Sk8Kings which will include the additional shipping charge/adjusted order total to pay. To be aware of the total charge in advance, please request a shipping quote prior to placing your order.
Normal Transit Times for International Shipping - Transit times quoted are estimates only and are not guaranteed arrival times. Normally international packages are handled efficiently and arrive quickly, however, there are many factors that can cause delay in transit which are out of our control. This is especially a factor during holiday mailing seasons and other busy times of the year. Most delays occur while packages pass through foreign customs after leaving the USA. Please allow for possible delays in transit. On-line tracking service is only provided with Express International Priority mail class. This mail class is available for an additional cost. Please request Express service if necessary when placing your order.
Other Important International Order Policies -- Please
note we reserve the right to limit and specify acceptable payment and shipping
methods for some countries. SK8KINGS will not be responsible
for additional duties or taxes levied by local government, customs or postal
authorities in the
receiving country (shipping destination) on orders shipped outside the continental
United States. Any such charges levied by the receiving country will be
the responsibility of the customer (person placing order according to shipping
address) and customer agrees to assume this responsibility upon placing
an order with SK8KINGS. The
assessments of these types of charges may vary by country and are out of
SK8KINGS. Please check
with your local government, customers and/or postal authority in advance
if you are unfamiliar with the local regulations of your destination country.
