International Shipping
We are happy to ship to locations outside the United States. Please note that the shipping estimates generated through our website (on new merchandise only) are reviewed by our shipping department before orders are processed. Actual shipping weights may vary from the weights calculated through our online ordering system, so this review will ensure that your order is shipped for the most economical method possible. We will email you with the actual shipping charges for different shipping options before we ship your order. Your invoice will reflect "ASC Shipping" - actual shipping charges will apply. Please note that this amount will not reflect customs or brokerage fees which are accrued through some shipping carriers. 
Brokerage & Bond Fees

UPS charges a brokerage fee for international shipments dependent upon the value of shipment. Shipments $20 or less will typically not accrue a brokerage fee. However, please reference your country's UPS website or contact our shipping department for zones and rates. Customers are responsible for payment of all duties and taxes. When funds are not provided in advance by the customer, UPS must post a bond to release the shipment. UPS will charge customers 2.7% (minimum $6) and a $4.95 COD charge for this process. To avoid bond fees, call 1-800-PICK-UPS and ask about Prepayment or Electronic Funds Transfer plans. Please note this may not include all applicable fees.  
Customs Fees

International shipments shipped either UPS or USPS will accrue a duty and tax fee. In many countries, duty is not charged for merchandise $20 or less. Please reference your country's customs policies.
