International Shipping Methods:

We are NO LONGER SHIPPING DIRECTLY INTERNATIONALLY. This is for several reasons, mostly:

  • 1) Our postal rates last updated 2016 and current rates are much higher.
  • 2) Changes in worldwide customs/dutyfees/taxes for internet orders.
  • 3) Losses and delays in transit worldwide.
  • 4) Constant problems with complaints about the above from customers.

We are a small business and cannot maintain this, so we are choosing to stop shipping internationally. To our good customers worldwide, we are truly sorry that we can no longer assist you directly with shipping, but see our International shipping info about using 3rd Party Freight Forwarding Shipping Companies located in the U.S. as :

International customers located in CANADA only, please contact us to discuss shipping.

We ARE shipping in the United States to all locations and to APO/FPO military addresses.
