|Accurate international shipping
costs can only be determined once your order has been packaged, weighed
and prepared for shipment. The following describes how we handle your initial
shipping charge at the time of checkout.
Purchases under $200.00 are
initially charged $25 for shipping which will cover a parcel weight of
up to 2 pounds. These purchases are shipped by USPS First Class International.
If your order weighs less than 2 pounds you will be issued a refund for
the excess shipping charge. If your order weighs more than 2 pounds
we will send you a PayPal invoice by email requesting the additional amount
required to ship your order. If your order weighs more than 4 pounds it
has to ship via USPS Priority International with rates starting at $47.00
and go up from there depending on destination country.
Purchases $200.00 and over
are initially charged $36 to $50 for shipping with your specific rate calculated
by the destination country. This rate is based on our most common
and average order weight of 2-3 pounds. These purchases are shipped by
USPS Priority International. If your order weighs less than 2 pounds you
will be issued a refund for the excess shipping charge. If your order
weighs more than 3 pounds we will send you a PayPal invoice by email requesting
the additional amount required to ship your order.
We will always keep your
final shipping cost as fair and low as possible considering the merchandise
value, size, weight and destination along with our costs incurred in preparing
your order for shipment.
The USPS First Class International
shipping service will be used for most of our merchandise costing less
than $200.00 and 4 pounds or less in weight. Qualifying orders will automatically
ship via the USPS First Class International service. With USPS First
Class International shipping most orders are delivered within 14 business
days, but on occasion can take longer and we have seen instances of up
to 8 weeks for delivery. Transit times vary from country to country
and the USPS does not provide estimated transit times for the First Class
International shipping service nor do they allow insurance.
All international shipments
are transported by the United States Postal Service (USPS) to the destination
country where it is then handed over to either the postal service of the
destination country or a contracted courier for delivery. Additional
handling fees may be assessed your countries final shipping courier to
cover their service costs.
Purchases made from outside
the United States may be subject to additional costs such as importation
duties, taxes and customs clearance fees which may be required at the time
of delivery and are the sole responsibility of the buyer. OverDrive
Custom Guitar Works does not set any of these additional costs, these are
assessed by your countries customs agency based on the value of the merchandise
you are importing. We will not falsify the U.S. Customs document
to declare a value less than the actual value of the merchandise.
