Have any questions on Expedited Shipping times?
Be sure to check your individual tracking number with the individual shipping carriers for updated delivery time estimates. Some carriers do not ship on holidays or weekends, thus even though you may pay for expedited shipping services, the actual delivery date is at the sole discretion of the selected shipping carrier. This is out of the control of Alpha…we strive our best to get it on the delivery truck as soon as possible…but the actual delivery timetable is determined by the carrier.
Alphaindustries.com is pleased to offer USPS Global Economy Service to most international countries (service carrier is chosen by Alphaindustries.com and varies by country destination). Shipping charges are based on the weight and quantity of item(s) shipped to the country of destination. The available countries are listed in the shopping cart and may change from time to time without notice.
USPS Global Economy Service is usually the most economical shipping method for most of our customers. International orders utilizing this service level can typically take from 7 to 21 days, however actual delivery timing is highly dependent upon external factors such as border/customs entry processes. Delivery is to your local post office where you must pay applicable duties and taxes to retrieve your shipment. AlphaIndustries.com cannot guarantee accurate shipment tracking beyond USA borders with this service.
Duties, Customs and VAT:
International orders may be subject to additional fees/costs that are not included in your order transaction totals. Examples include, Duties, Customs or Value Added Taxes. These charges MUST be paid upon receipt of your package and these fees/costs are not the responsibility of Alphaindustries.com. Be sure to verify the additional cost you may incur with the customs authorities of the country the order is being shipped to prior to making a purchase from Alphaindustries.com, as we have no control over these costs.
All international Shipments:
USPS is our chosen shipping provider for much of the globe. As an international customer, you are required to pay any duties and/or taxes levied by any related Customs Agencies. In international deliveries using other carriers, usually the carrier will collect any customs and/or import fees at the time of delivery. If you decline these fees or charges, Alpha is notified and we are given the option of paying for return shipment back to the United States, or Alpha can order the shipment contents destroyed. Customers failing to pay these customs fees will NOT be refunded any monies related to the original order.
AlphaIndustries.com will not pay for International shipping costs to and from any location outside of the continental 48 United States.
