International Ordering Information
Thank you for your interest in Oldschoolskates.com. Although we do not ship to all countries, most countries are on our "OK" list. To see if we ship to your country, e-mail us. We reserve the right to cancel orders from countries that are not on our approved list.
We prefer to ship all international orders by US Mail. We prefer to use Priority Mail International. The options are:
Priority Mail takes 5-12 days and insurance is an added cost. Some orders over
pounds may be able to ship cheaper in Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes.
Priority Mail Flat Rate Medium Box can ship up to 20 pounds for a flat rate of $47.75 for Canada and Mexico, or $78.95 for all other countries. There are 2 Medium Flat Rate Box sizes: 13.625" x 11.875" x 3.375" and 11.00" x 8.50" x 5.50". Most everything we sell will fit into the Flat Rate boxes except a skateboard deck and rails.
First Class Mail. This is the cheapest way to ship packages under 4 pounds. There is a 4 pound limit on First Class. The PO has raised the rates in this class, so shipping by First Class will be just a little less than Priority Mail, but not a lot. A 3 pound box is now $52.75. A set of 2 trucks and a set of 4 wheels, or 3 sets of 4 wheels could be shipped by First Class.
Priority mail is faster than First class mail by a few days.
Please note that our web site does not calculate the international shipping charges. The shipping that is calculated when you place an order on our web site is for US shipments only. International rates are much higher and vary from country to country. The actual shipping charges are added to your order after the order has been processed and is ready to ship.
