Shipping costs are based on weight, value, distance, size, shipping option, etc. The calculated shipping cost will be displayed in the order form when you enter your address into the shopping cart system and view your basket contents. I will send an email on all flute orders with tracking information so you can track your flute. There are 3 methods of shipping in the shopping cart.
1) Normal - This is would be Priority Mail Insured or Media Mail if applicable
2) International orders will be shipped Priority Mail International.
We ship to many countries and it requires a special trip to the Post Office on our part. All shipments out of the USA are sent International Priority Mail insured. If Priority mail is not available to your country we will not ship there, but it is available for most. If insurance is not available to your country we will notify you before we ship as it will not be covered in case of loss or damage. . Delivery time to Great Britain, France, Germany, Canada, etc can take anywhere from 5 to 10 days to arrive at your customs office. The time it takes to get out of customs and into your local postal system has taken from days to weeks, even months. There seems to be no pattern to this amount of time and annoying delay.
Packages are scanned when they leave the USA and only scanned again when they are delivered so tracking information will only show it was flown out of our airports and arrived to your customs.
I am told by the US Postal Service you can give the US tracking number to your local postal service and may be able to get more information.
Also there may be an additional fee or tax from your Government in the form of customs fees, duty tax, VAT, etc. This is out of our control and a part of your countries taxation system.
3) APO or FPO - If your address is APO or FPO items will be shipped Priority Mail insured.
