For smaller quantities, we do deliver at your doorstep. Customs taxes and duties might be charged on shipments going to your destination. Please note that the customer will be required to bear for the cost of these taxes and duties.

All shipments handled by TCP will have their export permits and customs documentation done and these charges are included in the shipping charges. If you wish to make your own shipping arrangements, please note that TCP will price the order on a FOB (Free on board) basis and TCP shall not be responsible for the export clearance of the goods to your destination.
