International Shipping -Customs and Import Duties
UPS offers in-house International Custom Clearance service, which normally clears much faster and without any problems than other local carriers, however, different countries have different customs policies. Therefore, your shipment may be subject to delay once your package is withheld for import customs check in the destination country. This typically is unlikely to happen, however. As purchaser, you are the importer of the item into your country and are responsible for any required import duties and taxes. Please comply with all regulations of the country in which you receive your goods.
Given the popularity of Talking Car System, we make every effort to ship your order according to the lead-time provided, shipping dates may change due to changes in supply.
