European Surface Shipping Charges - Products which include Lithium-Ion Batteries

EUROPEAN SHIPPING CHARGES

PRODUCTS WHICH INCLUDE RECHARGEABLE LITHIUM-ION BATTERY PACKS

Increasingly, European customers are entering orders and leaving them incomplete when they realise the shipping costs.

To ship these products we are obliged to use surface delivery courier services. This is due to IATA rules governing the shipment of lithium-ion batteries by air. These products cannot be sent via normal postal services.

To help our European customers in their buying decisions we have published below the charges for shipping these products via DPD Surface 2 or 3 day delivery service. In all cases these charges include packages up to 5kg in weight and include VAT.

Products that do not contain lithium-ion batteries will be shipped at normal airmail rates.

Unfortunately, as all single product orders for the affected products come in at 1Kg or less there is a lot of unused weight allowance within the charge. Thus customers that are able to combine orders, such as clubs etc, can achieve substantial savings by grouping orders.
