illuminationGear Gift Card
For the convenience of our International Customers - we offer International Shipping via USPS International Air Mail from our location in Florida USA...
We do not have a "Flat Rate" for postage - our International Postage Service is offered purely as a convenience to our customers, and we attempt to charge only the approx additional fees incurred (if the actual costs end up higher than anticipated we will absorb those costs, and the additional Credit Card/Paypal International fees as well).
It is not our intention to "make money" on International Shipping Fees.
You can see the actual USA USPS International Postage costs here... http://postcalc.usps.com/ (Make Sure to Select "Package")
Please email us if you need more specific information.
EFFECTIVE NOVEMBER 15TH 2012 - Lithium Primary or Li-Ion Rechargeable Batteries MAY be shipped to International addresses (and APO/FPO/DPO) ~ when installed into a flashlight. (Loose batteries cannot be mailed)
(EXCEPTION: Germany & Italy will not accept packages containing Li-ion/Lithium in Regular Mail)
International Shipping Restrictions for ALL Shippers
If we receive orders containing Lithium or Li-ion batteries without a light, or beyond what can be installed into light and protective battery case (or shipping address is Germany/Italy) - we will cancel and refund the order, or battery portion of the order.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the complexities involved with International Shipping & Duty-Customs, etc - we cannot be held responsible for missing items or lost shipments after the package has been received by the USA/USPS Carrier and has processed out of Export/Customs USA.
ALSO NOTE: The packages sent to some Countries, specially RUSSIA - can take 3-6 weeks to 6 MONTHS to arrive - this is something completely out of our and US Post Office control.
Shipment "Tracking" Information only verifies the shipment date and time.
Once the package leaves the USA/Export Customs Office it is generally no longer trackable to most countries - unless Priority Mail, Express Mail, or Registered Mail is used.
If lost shipments is a concern to you - or, if value of items exceeds $200-$300 - we highly recommend using "Registered Service" for Additional $16.00. This is more effective and secure than Insurance (Insurance is almost impossible to claim, as proof that the package was NOT delivered must be provided to Post Office).
