I generally use USPS second day, if the price of the item is under $1000. I use UPS for items over $1000 unless there is a need for a Saturday delivery
The charge for shipping only covers the cost of shipping.
I try to ship all items within 24 hours or less of receiving cleared payment.
I will not assume responsibility for lost or damaged items for customers outside the USA if the item is not insured. Also please be aware that any postal fees, and or customs fees that the importing country may charge you are your responsibility.
Please find out your local import regulations.
I ship many packages from internet sales and customers watch’s returned from repairs in and out of the USA and here is what I can offer as advice:
Within the USA, USPS Priority Mail is very safe to use.
All items shipped to me should have insurance added.
Outside of the USA all shipping options have almost the same delivery times. Delivery times usually depends on the countries customs office and postal system. There are many countries to which mail travels fast and safe such as UK, Japan, Australia, Hong Kong and many others. There are also some countries to which the mail travels slower, such as Canada, Italy, etc. and to some countries, mail is just not as safe such as Mexico, Thailand, etc. Please keep in mind that once out of my hands most packages take 7-30 days for arrival. For customers outside the USA none of the shipping options below actually offer insurance so if you want a faster and safer guaranteed delivery (8 days or less) ask for Global Express Guaranteed with FEDEX. This usually costs anywhere from $50-$200 depending on the weight, destination and insured value. Shipping costs for inside the USA: Priority USPS $12-$18 Express-$19-$50 Shipping costs for anywhere outside the USA: Express-$30-$75
