HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
If you are sending individual gifts, this may be less or more depending on the weight of items in your cart.
Express Freight will be calculated based on weight and destination at check-out.
We have negotiated rates with DHL Express to give you value-for-money.
Included in our Freight:
Customs form completion – this is mandatory for all parcels going internationally. We are experienced at correctly completing customs forms to ensure your parcel gets through as smoothly as possible
Door-to-door tracking of your gift – We work with DHL express who provide you with regular updates of where your gift is in the world. There are many scans between here and Japan so you can see exactly where it is online updated in real time.
Assistance clearing customs – On average, 5% of all parcels get checked by Customs and take longer to be delivered. We cannot be held responsible for this. When this happens, we work with customs via DHL Express to ensure local govt officials have the information required to clear your gift as swiftly as possible
Taxes and duties payable in Japan – When you send food and gifts to Japan by courier, there is always an administration charge plus UK taxes and duties payable to HRM Revenue and Customs. We cover these charges as part of our freight cost so you never have to worry about the person you are sending the gift to being stung with additional costs
