A customer service representative will contact you with a shipping quote prior to processing your order." Please continue through the checkout process by entering in the form of payment. Once we receive the order a customer service rep will contact you for approval. 6) Once the shipping rate is approved, the order will be processed and shipped out.

General Shipping & Tax Charges
We DO ship to most International destinations. International orders are generally shipped USPS Priority Mail or FedEx International. Express shipping is available at an additional cost for all items. The exact shipping costs are calculated after your order has been submitted. The initial order placed will be charged to the card; however, freight charges will be processed once you approve the shipping rate. If shipping charges are not approved, the order will be cancelled and you will be refunded. Sorry, but we are not able to guarantee shipping times for packages shipped internationally.
