Costs that are beyond SVB's control

The SVB team will gladly accept orders from all over the world and ship them to remote locations and ports when we receive a clear delivery address from you. This means that, for example, circumnavigators can also access our services and most of our products outside the EU. However, when using this service, we would like to point out that customs duties, taxes, import fees, storage fees, exchange rates, currency differences or other costs may arise over which SVB has no control and we cannot estimate or determine these beforehand - these costs are always the responsibility of the recipient and must be paid by him or her.

Customs clearance

Customs authorities may open and inspect parcels. We have no influence over this. For more information on costs, customs clearance times, etc., please contact your local customs authorities. The customs authorities of some countries require special proof of identification from the importer / consignee of goods before a consignment is released. As the importer / consignee of the goods, you may use an identification number, e.g. national identification number, CPF or tax number. SVB is not obliged to issue you or customs authorities with a supplier or long-term supplier declaration and / or an export declaration or to procure such from its own pre-suppliers. We recommend that you refrain from using an alternative delivery address for orders being shipped to non-EU countries.

International shipping: costs, transit times and delivery restrictions

The shipping costs to all countries outside the EU are individually requested by our SVB dispatch staff for each order from the respective forwarder and can vary greatly depending on weight, size and the country of destination. We would also like to point out that we have no influence on the duration of the delivery by forwarding and shipping companies and cannot guarantee the complete tracking of shipments. Please note that international shipping to certain countries is subject to delivery restrictions and not all items may be shipped to all countries. You are responsible for ensuring that products can be lawfully imported into the country of destination. When ordering from SVB, you as the recipient are the importer and must accordingly ensure that all laws and regulations of the country of destination are complied with. It may also be the case for air and sea freight deliveries that a "door-to-door" service is not included and you may need to pick up the goods at the respective airport or seaport. We will not carry any additional transportation costs. Please note that we may need to prepare an export declaration for deliveries to non-EU countries, which may delay the shipment by approximately 2 days.

Possible deviations from country-specific standards

Please note that for internationally shipped products, the manufacturer's warranty may not apply, the manufacturer's servicing options may not be available, instructions and safety warnings may not be written in the local language, the products (and accessories) may not be in accordance with the standards in force within the country of destination, specifications or labelling requirements may not be in compliance with local standards, and products may not be in compliance with the electrical voltage and other electrical standards within the country of destination.

Goods that we ship to Germany or other European countries are subject to German VAT. If these goods are then exported to NON-EU COUNTRIES a VAT refund by SVB is NOT possible § 7132 (3) UStG). Thank you for your understanding.

Fast global delivery by air/air freight

Shipping via air freight ensures that your delivery reaches you globally and on time. We recommend this shipping method, especially for deliveries to third countries to avoid long delivery times due to customs clearance. Please contact our customer service team for more information about shipping costs.

Returns and replacements

Return costs are to be paid by the recipient of the goods. The above conditions also apply to any replacement items that we ship at our discretion if the original shipment was not correct. If you return an item to us, you are the exporter from the country of destination. The legal claim and the risk of loss is transferred to us as soon as the goods arrive at our logistics centre. In the case of a replacement, you can ask the respective customs office if it is possible to remit the import charges, but we cannot guarantee this.

VAT ID

As a business client, a VAT ID (value added tax identification number) is necessary for any orders shipped to areas outside of Germany within Europe. Orders shipped to countries outside the EU will not be charged European VAT. However, please note that these orders may be subject to the respective country-specific taxes and customs duties and may have to be paid in the destination country. Regarding postal services, you as the customer are the importer and are obliged to pay the amounts due for them. These can be collected, for example, by the local post office at the time of delivery. Please check with your national customs authorities for the applicable tax rate.
