Mark Twain Hobby Center uses several shipping methods to ship orders internationally. The actual shipping cost is used to help keep the costs down for all of our customers. The estimated delivery times are provided as follows:
First Class Mail: 2 to 4 Weeks
Priority Mail: 6 to 10 Business Days
Express Mail: 4 to 8 Business Days
The shipping times provided above are estimations based on average deliveries and may vary depending on how the package moves through the shipping stream and customs. NOTE: International First Class Mail is an economic way to ship all over the world, but is not very timely. The average delivery time for International First Class Mail is 2 to 4 weeks depending on how the package moves through customs and the postal system, but can take up to 45 days to arrive. If you need it faster, please choose International Express Mail or Priority Mail that has a average delivery time of 6 to 10 business days.
Import duties, taxes, and charges are NOT INCLUDED in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up, do not confuse them for additional shipping charges. We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as "gifts", US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.
Some items are "restricted" and cannot be shipped outside of the United States. These items are noted in the description and will not be able to ship through an order placed. If you receive a shipping error in the shopping cart, it is because there is a restricted item that cannot ship to you. It can be removed and the order will process through, or you can contact our customer service team for further assistance.
