Customs, Gifts & Duties:
Please note that we are unable to send out our international orders marked as a gift. The reason for this is that we are registered with our shipping companies as a retailer. If we mark the items as a gift they are more likely to be held by customs. With that said, we try our best to help you avoid hefty tax charges by your government. Usually our international customers luck out and end up not having to pay taxes and duties at all, but in rare instances even though we do our absolute best to help ALL of our customers avoid these taxes there is still a small chance that the customer might end up having to pay for import taxes in the end. Heatwavevisual.com does not and will not pay for import taxes, as this is the sole responsibility of the customer. Please note that these taxes are assessed by your countries customs office and government and can not be controlled, charged or estimated by Heatwavevisual.com
Special note for International customers using USPS: USPS GLOBAL EMS and PRIORITY MAIL INTERNATIONAL transit time is not guaranteed nor insured. This is because a USPS GLOBAL EMS package may have to go through several carriers before it reaches its' destination and this can cause unexpected delays.
