We cannot guarantee in case of loss or breakage if you choose the shipping method without insurance. Under an understanding and an agreement to this, you may choose these shipping methods.

Size & Weight limit
Japanese postal service has a size and weight limitation to send the item. If you want to bid on a heavy or large item such as car parts, you should know the limit in advance. Actually, It varies from country to country. In a general way, the weight limit is 30kg. However, Australia and New Zealand have a strict 20kg limitation. If we cannot send you the item due to the limit, we will use Fedex or other delivery service, and which will certainly cost you a fortune. Please also check the large item section.

If your payment method is Paypal, the shipping information on the Paypal needs to match your address registered with us. We do not ship an item to the address which is different from the Paypal's one to avoid the fraudulent activity.

During the long trip from Japan, your item may be damaged. If you choose the insured shipping method, you will get compensation. Please go to your local post office and file a claim for compensation as soon as possible. However, you cannot get reimbursed under the following cases.

1.You chose the shipping method with no insurance.
2. The damage did not occur in transit

You may be subject to import duties and taxes. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. So any additional expense for customs clearance must be borne by you.
Please note that each country has its own restrictions on imported goods. Givent that it is difficult for us to generalize about it, we recommend you to contact your local authorities when further information is required before purchasing items.
