USPS Priority Mail

Slower and cheaper than Express Mail. Offers tracking. Size limitations depending on country. Size limitation is 42 inches maximum length (some countries 60 inches). Length + (2 x width) + (2 x height) less than 79 inches (some countries allow less than 108 inches).

Tracking is not very reliable. Sometimes package still shows as on the way, but it is already in customs in the target country. It is recommended to contact your local customs office when looking for a package. USPS tracking number often work with your local country postal service tracking. We recommend DHL for the most accurate tracking.

INDIA POST EMS Mail

DHL

Very fast and very reliable. Offers better tracking than USPS. We offer both DHL Priority and Economy service. Size limits: Max. length 108 inches. Length + (2 x width) + (2 x height) less than 130 inches. Our contract with DHL does not allow guarantee for speed of delivery due to the discounts we get.

If you use DHL please pay attention to tracking number. DHL will attempt to contact you regarding customs duty in your country. You either have to clear customs yourself or authorize DHL to do it for you. You will do it with your local DHL branch. Call them once you see your package arrived in your country. If the DHL is not able to contact you they might keep package for 5 days and either send it back or destroy it. Due to the high cost of sending it back (usually triple of our rates) we strongly recommend that you keep track of incoming packages and communicate with DHL. Bigger packages might be sent through DHL freight.

FEDEX

Very fast and reliable method. DHL quotes are shown in the calculator if it is available in selected location. Customer is responsible to make sure no restricted items are being shipped. FEDEX list of restricted items.
