How long will it take for my order to arrive?
The delivery time varies depending on the route/destination. For prepaid duties and taxes, it takes between 2-5 business days for Express shipments to arrive and standard shipments usually take between 6-14 business days. Shipments without duties and taxes may take longer to arrive due to additional customs processing. Note, these time ranges do not include any delivery delays due to customs clearance, extreme weather, or COVID-19.
Why do I pay duties and taxes?
Import duty is a tax collected on imports and some exports by a country's customs authorities. A good's value will usually dictate the import duty, and the duties also can vary by product category. Depending on the context, import duty may also be known as a customs duty, tariff, or import tariff. The duties are mandatory. There are other factors besides the good's value that define the amount of duties to be paid, including trade agreements between countries as well as specific customs authorities.
In addition to duties, many governments levy a tax on imports. Like duties, import taxes are usually a percentage of the good's value. Also, some countries charge multiple taxes on the same good imported. PedalCell provides the option to prepay these fees at checkout.
How do I pay duties/taxes?
You can pay duties and taxes at checkout when you place your order. This way you not only see the total cost upfront before placing the order, but you also won’t have to pay again when the parcel is delivered to you. If you opt to not pay for duties and taxes upfront, you'll be responsible for communicating with your customs office when PedalCell reaches your border to clear the package.
How can I track my order?
PedalCell provides you a tracking number and link when we your order is being fulfilled which typically happens within 24 hours after you place your order. For orders placed over the weekend or during holidays it may take a bit longer. You can track the status of your order through this tracking number and link where updates are posted as your parcel is in transit and ultimately delivered to you.
What if my order becomes stuck in customs?
First, we want to let you know that most shipments make it through customs without any delays. That said, from time-to-time customs authorities review a shipment and may ask for additional information before the customs authorities clear the shipment for final delivery.
