Shipping to a Freight Forwarding Company
this option, the factory ships directly to a freight forwarding company of the client's choice. If the freight forwarding
company is located within the United States, no international shipping fees are charged by us. The client then has the packages
forwarded to their own address by the freight forwarding company. This option is usually less expensive if
the client has the packages shipped to them by boat. For weight estimations, the following guidelines can be used:
Shipping Directly to the Client's International Ship-To Address
For this option, the factory ships directly to
the client's international ship-to address. To make certain that we do not overcharge shipping, we contact
our shipping companies, for exact pricing for each individual order. To do this
we first take the order and place it on hold. We then contact the factory with
the details of the order to get an exact price. Then, we contact the customer with the shipping cost that was given to us.
We do not charge the customer’s credit card until we have their full approval for the total price of the order, including
shipping. International shipping is expensive. For example, shipping a single wood blind to Europe can cost $350, and shipping
a single set of plantation shutters to Australia can cost $500 or more.
