You can verify if your address is determined by DHL as remote area here. The surcharge is about $30.00 usually. Please kindly note that for remote area's shipping address, we may contact you for extra surcharge as charged by DHL before shipping of your order. Any other surcharges applied by the express company, such as change of shipping address, are charged upon each such request individually.

Express shipping services we provide usually take 1-4 working days for delivery, depending on your shipping address and the shipping services you have selected for your order during checkout.Please kindly note that once the package leaves our warehouse, we have no direct control over how the shipping courier handles the packages, and although it is rare, there may be delays due to bad weather, strike and other unforeseen reasons, and damages due to rough handling.

Taxes and customs duties

 

When shopping from overseas, it is important to know that you are importing the products, and will therefore likely have to pay your local custom duties. Each country has its own set of import laws and rules, which change often and are assessed at the port of entry by a customs officer. Hoohoom ships items to major countries in the world and can’t know each country’s custom regulations, taxes, tariffs and duties for vapor products. Customers will be responsible for their local custom issues.In cases of processing delay, seizure and rejection of your package by your local custom, although it rarely happens, Hoohoom will try our best to help resolve the issue, but we have no control under such scenarios and can’t assume responsibility.

 

Incorrect or incomplete address submission

 

Please review your shipping address carefully when placing an order. Errors in the shipping address will cause delays in processing, transit times or returned orders. In case the package is returned due to inaccurate address provided by customers, we will only reship the order until it is returned to us by the courier and the customer has paid the cost for reshipping the order.

 

Incorrect payment

 

If we are unable to process your order due to inaccurate or incomplete payment information, your order processing may be delayed. We will contact you via email or phone calls for further information in order to verify your payment.
