6- ADDITIONAL TERMS FOR INTERNATIONAL ORDERS (points 6 to 9)
6.1- Customers placing orders for international delivery must be aware that they are liable for all import duties and local taxes. Carrooka has no control over what these additional charges will be. International duties and taxes are NOT included in your check-out payment. Duties and taxes are
calculated on a country by country basis by local customs offices and will either be charged on delivery or customers will be notified by the courier that an invoice must be paid prior to delivery, or customers may receive an invoice after delivery. A delay in paying for local customs and taxes may result in an additional storage, administration and handling charges. Carrooka has no control over such charges and the customer remains liable for all such charges. A refusal to pay any charges relating to the international delivery of items, may result in the item being returned to Carrooka. In this instance, the customer will be liable to pay all return costs and all additional storage, administration and handling charges. Carrooka will invoice the customer for said charges.
6.2- Carrooka will post international orders using a reputable airfreight courier service and will pack items sufficiently to arrive in good condition under normal handling. Due to the complexities of international deliveries, we aim to resolve issues arising from damaged deliveries or faulty items within the destination country if at all possible. This means that we may send you additional replacement parts and give instruction as to how to fit replacement parts yourself or using local skilled labour. Where there are costs arising from this, Carrooka will refund these costs to the card used for the initial purchase, as long as costs are agreed in writing in advance. If a local repair is not possible, we will discuss resolutions with customers on an individual basis, solutions may include, a replacement item being sent without the need to return the faulty item, or a refund and cancellation of order. We hope to work in the spirit of cooperation to deal with issues relating to international orders in order to minimise airmiles and expense to all parties.
6.3- International customers have the same right to change their minds about their purchase as customers in the UK (see sections 2 and 4 above) BUT we would strongly advise customers to carefully consider a purchase before having items shipped overseas. Customers are wholly liable for all return costs under these circumstances. If customers do change their mind about purchase where there is no item fault, Carrooka will liaise with the customer to discuss alternates to return as a first choice, this may include the customer selling the item locally in order to avoid additional return expenses.
6.4- Please note that Carrooka rule books are currently supplied ONLY in English.
