The lowest shipping cost to most foreign countries is US$35.00US or US$25.00 to Canada.
Items that are ordered but are shown to be not in stock will be placed on back order. Back ordered items will be shipped separately with an additional shipping charge once they become available. To minimize your shipping costs you can choose to order only items that are currently in stock.
We ship only via methods that are reliable and efficient. We are not interested in the absolute lowest cost shipping options and we will not use them because they are proven not cost effective.
Our standard procedure is to ship all international orders via the lower cost of our selected carriers: USPS Priority Mail (Post) or UPS EXPEDITED (UPS). You can instruct us to use one or the other if you have a preference.
Keep in mind that the lowest cost carrier generally provides the lowest quality service. If you desire a higher quality of service, including faster delivery times and better package tracking, you must write in the comments box that you want us to ship your order via UPS. UPS provides worldwide package tracking and delivers to most countries in 1 week. In comparison, the tracking abilities of the US Postal Service end at the US border when the package is transferred the postal service in the receiving country. The postal service in some countries continues the tracking service, but the postal service in many other countries does not. Delivery time for the Postal Service is normally less than 2 weeks, but we have seen packages take 4 to 6 weeks and sometimes much longer. The Post often will not consider your package lost until 8 weeks have passed.
