Delivery FAQs

Can I track my order?

Next Working Day and International Express orders can be tracked and email notification will be sent with regards to how this can be done. All other orders can also be tracked, please email us your order number for your tracking number. 

Where do you deliver to?

Virtually everywhere. If your country is not listed at checkout please contact us.

Customs and Import Charges

Duties do not apply for orders delivered within the EU.

For orders delivered to countries outside the EU, Customs duties, taxes and brokerage fees may be charged. These charges will be billed separately, by the local customs authority, and are the responsibility of the customer. We do not have control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be.

Orders will be exempt from these taxes if they fall below the ‘de minimus’ value. De minimus amounts are set at a country level by the respective Customs authority and we advise customers to check with their relevant authority.

Countries with high de minimus values are: USA $800, Australia $1000AUD, New Zealand $400NZD, Singapore $400SGD

Delivery to Russia

Currently, goods sent from a business in the UK to a residential address in Russia will be rejected by Russian customs. We can deliver, via DHL, to any business address in Russia but no residential addresses.

Any orders for Brooks products with a delivery address outside of these areas will be cancelled and all payments refunded.
