Do you ship internationally?
We can ship internationally to Canada, U.S. territories and APO/FPO addresses. We will ship to other international locations on a case-by-case basis. If you are interested in placing an international order, please contact us so we can put together a quote for you.
We ship to Canada and U.S. territories via U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail whenever possible (108 inches maximum length + girth and/or $650 merchandise value) and UPS for all other parcels. APO/FPO is shipped by U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail only.
We can ship to international addresses (other than Canada) via U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail or UPS Worldwide Saver. We do not falsify documents to avoid customs fees. Payment for all international orders (other than Canada) must be made either by wire transfer or international money order. Credit card or PayPal payments are not accepted.
We do not ship used gear internationally, except to Canada.
Why doesn't your website compute shipping automatically?
We find that people, not computers, do a far better job computing a fair shipping cost. All of our web orders are lovingly received, fulfilled and shipped by hand. This ensures that if you buy ten pairs of gloves you will only be charged $10.00 for shipping, not $100.00 or some unreasonable amount like that.
Motorfreight Shipments and Claims
Motorfreight companies are no longer honoring freight claims for damage reported after our customers receive and sign for their shipment. Shipments from Big Winds MUST be inspected BEFORE signing and any damage reported at that time. Without customer inspection the freight companies assume that the damage occurred after delivery and that the freight company cannot be held responsible.
Big Winds is putting large labels on all outgoing freight shipments advising our customers not to sign for the shipment until they have thoroughly inspected it for any damage and that we are not responsible for shipments that are not signed for as damaged upon arrival.
This information is also being included in the Big Winds Shipment Confirmation email sent to customers.
