What shipping methods do you use?

We use Japan Post and DHL to send items to our customers.

We offer the following 4 shipping methods via Japan Post:

EMS – Approximately 3 to 7 days to most places in the world by air. This is the most expensive option, but also the fastest. EMS also offers the best shipping insurance in case something goes wrong.

SAL – Approximately 2 to 3 weeks to most places in the world by air/ground. This is a mid-range shipping option that works out a little cheaper than EMS on a lot of items, but is slightly slower. Unlike EMS, insurance is limited.

Sea post – Approximately 6 to 9 weeks to most places in the world by sea. This is the slowest shipping option, but also the most cost effective. Sea post, like SAL, has limited insurance.

e-Packet – This is special online only service from Japan Post for small items up to 2kg. It is cheaper than EMS and takes a few days longer. It is a really great balanced option for small packages.

SAL small packet – This is special online only service from Japan Post for small items up to 2kg. It is cheaper than e-Packet and takes a little longer. It is the cheapest shipping method available for small packages.

We also offer DHL:

DHL Worldwide Express – DHL is best for large, heavy items like wheels. DHL can also be used for items that over over Japan Post’s maximum size/weight limits. DHL takes 2 to 4 days to almost anywhere in the world.

All of the above options come with online tracking so you can keep an eye on the package as it makes it way to you.
