We welcome our international customers and gladly ship to most destinations worldwide. So that we may handle your order efficiently, please note the following guidelines.
International Shipping Costs -- The international shipping charge must be manually calculated and will not be added automatically to your order when using our on-line store. We use 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. 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.
International Order Placement Instructions-- International orders may be placed through our webstore, however, the additional shipping charge will not be added in automatically. Depending on your payment method, the additional shipping charge will be handled as follows.
For credit card orders, we can usually rebill directly to your credit card after your order is received for the additional shipping amount. You do not need to add in the amount when placing your order - simply complete the check out with credit card payment. We will notify you via email the additional shipping charge before we re-bill for your approval.
If using paypal, complete your order through the store (choosing "check" as payment method - use check # "111" when prompted) and await receipt of a paypal payment request from Sk8Kings which will include the additional shipping charge/adjusted order total to pay.
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 usually available with Priority and Express mail classes. First Class International and some flat rate economy packs do not offer on-line tracking but will be insured for transit.
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 the control of SK8KINGS - though we will do everything we can to prepare the package for smooth customs clearance. Please check with your local government, customs office and/or postal authority in advance if you are unfamiliar with the local regulations of your destination country.
