International Shipping FAQ's

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, we ship to the vast majority of countries. Shipping fees are automatically calculated at checkout. The fee is based on quotes that are provided by our partner freight companies. In rare cases, the location of the shipment does not specifically match the quote on the checkout page. If an order is placed and there is a discrepancy between the shipping fee and the actual shipping cost, a Boardcave team member will promptly contact you.

If you are unsure about the international shipping fee that is automatically calculated on the checkout page you can contact us for more information.

How much is shipping to my country?

If you do not see your country listed in the drop down box of locations at checkout, please leave us a message on live chat and we’ll be happy to do a shipping quote for you.

Are import taxes and duties included in the purchase price?

The short answer is no. International customers may be required to pay any duties and taxes upon arrival of their items.
