No, there are no extra charges associated with the placement of an urgent order. Before an urgent order is placed we make sure that you are notified of the approximate timeframe that would be required for the completion of your project. We proceed forward with starting the production process, only when you have approved of the timeframe and accepted the same.
We guarantee a turnaround time only after all the necessary procedures required to be fulfilled before the start of production has been completed by the client. However, it is worthy to note that although we try our best to complete the production process within the promised timeframe, delays can still take place. In the event that we have failed to comply with the promised timeframe, a discount will be provided to you as a form of compensation, for the projects that you avail from us in the future.
It is also important to note that the arrival dates and delivery dates are an estimate. The shipping is initiated by us, but the process is done by the shipping company, and any delays in shipping is something we cannot be held responsible for. We do not accept any kind of responsibility for delays that might happen once your product has already left our facility. We hope that you understand this statement.
In order to minimize any delays via shipping, our selected partners for shipping are DHL and FedEx. We ship a huge amount of products throughout the year, therefore, you would be able to avail competitive prices through us, and we leave no stones unturned in order to form a beneficial collaboration and ensuring timely delivery of your products.

American importers much pay heed to two important things. These include:
- ISF- The ISF documents are submitted to the local customs before the sail of the cargo vessel. If not done, importers are liable to be fined.
- Bond- A bond of import must also be present with the importers. The validity of the bond is dependent on the type of bond that you purchase. It can either be only for a one-time importing or can be valid throughout the year. If you want us to deal with this segment, the best that we can provide to you is a one-off bond.
For importers from Australia, the PACKING DECLARATION is provided by us when you get the BL. We are also capable of providing you with the CERTIFICATE OF ORIGIN, if you need it. Let us know about the need for the CERTIFICATE OF ORIGIN, prior to the sailing of the cargo vessel.
The BL that is provided by us is normally Telex Released. In the case that you need the original BL, please let us know about the same before the sailing of the cargo vessel. We should point out that it is compulsory that you make it known to us that you need the original BL before the products are being sent or before the Telex Released BL is sent to you. You can only have one of the two versions and it wouldn’t be possible for us to provide you with the original once the Telex Released version has already been sent to you.
