If we do have the stock, we will ship to you within 5 days.
We use DHL for international orders and endeavour to provide an indication of cost to you prior to shipment. Please note that we cannot be held liable for customs, duties, taxes and fees charged by your government. We cannot take responsibility for any delays in delivery due to your country’s customs clearance process.
You will be notified with tracking information via email once your package has been shipped.
