Kanda Shipping Guide

Shipping to United States

All orders are shipped from UK.



Economy Shipping

Economy shipping to USA is by recorded airmail, except orders under 30 USD which are not recorded, using Royal Mail and USPS. Despite its bad reputation, we have found that USPS is very efficient with international mail, and the majority of parcels are delivered in 5-6 days (6-10 days unrecorded) and we have never had one get lost. If delays do occur, they are usually caused by US customs and Department of Homeland Security, not USPS.

Online tracking is available with recorded airmail. When we ship you will be sent a tracking number, which can be used to track the parcel on Royal Mail Website

When the parcel leaves the UK, tracking can be continued on USPS Website
Parcels may take a while to appear on USPS website as they are not registered until they clear customs.

If you use a PO Box for mail, please use this as shipping address for economy shipments.

The weight limit on economy shipping is 2Kg/4lb but shipments over 1.5Kg/2lb can be cheaper on Express

Low value items may be shipped unrecorded in some circumstances

We will track your parcel 5 days after shipment and report any delays or problems to you, such as customs issues or failed delivery attempts


Express Shipping

We have extensive experience of the operations of different carriers and now use Fedex for Express deliveries. Their service is equivalent to UPS or DHL.
Typical Transit times are

Destination Expected Time
UK Next Day
EU 1-2 days
Rest of Europe 2-3 days
South East Asia 3-4 days
Rest of World 3-6 days


NOTES:
  • Fedex and other shippers cannot deliver to PO boxes
  • Shipments to Brazil need a CPNJ or CPJ. Please enter this in VAT number field during checkout
  • Goods are shipped DDU, Delivered Duty Unpaid. If your country charges inport duty, you must pay this fee. Please see shipping terms below
  • Some shipments, especially outside EU, USA and Canada can be delayed by customs beyond these times

Own Carrier

If you would prefer to have the shipping costs added to your own shipping account (DHL, FedEx, TNT, UPS etc.) there is an option for this on the shop. When viewing your cart, choose Own Carrier. Then give your shipper's name and your account number on address screen during checkout. Incoterms for these exports are Ex Works (EXW).

Disclaimer
In a few circumstances (eg unusual countries, multiple ordering of products, etc) these rates or quoted shipping times will not be valid. In these circumstances we will NOT charge your card, instead we will contact you.

Shipping Terms
The price you pay for shipping includes cost of carriage and insurance to your address by airmail or carrier. It does NOT include any Duties or Taxes levied on importation to your country, which are the responsibility of the buyer i.e. goods are Delivered Duty Unpaid (DDU Icoterms).

Import of our products to most countries is free of duty. This includes EU counties, other European counties, USA, Canada, Mexico, Australia and South Africa.

Note: In addition to duty, some counties may charge local sales taxes e.g. 10% GST in Australia. If in doubt, check with your local Customs department.
