Shipping Rates (Costs)

We try to keep our shipping rates as low as we possibly can and strive to charge you only what it actually costs us. We do not charge for handling or packing.

UK orders : There is one shipping rate of only £2-99 per order, so the more you order the cheaper it gets overall!

International Orders : Shipping rates are dependent on the total weight of your order, except for certain items such as Badges, Stickers and Patches which are classed as zero-weight so they will not cost you any extra charges (in addition to the minimum shipping rate).

In all cases, you will be able to see exactly how much you will be paying BEFORE you make any payment.

Here are some examples :

Europe, minimum shipping rate : £5-11
Example : A T-shirt will cost £5-35 for shipping

USA, minimum shipping rate : £7-80
Example : A T-shirt will cost £8-63 for shipping

Rest Of World, minimum shipping rate : £5-80
Example : A T-shirt will cost £6-63 for shipping

Note : Our international delivery charges currently exclude VAT, customs or duty charges, or handling fees for such duties.

EU Customers - Post Brexit - VAT and Customs Payments

As of 01 July 2021 (post-Brexit), customs authorities in the EU will be applying customs, excise and VAT procedures to all orders sent from the UK, this may cause some delays in some areas as new systems are implemented. (The previous "low value goods" threshold of €22 was abolished on this date.)

The following information is to the best of our knowledge.

Our shipping is currently "Delivered Duty Unpaid". Therefore, as of 01 July 2021, VAT, customs clearance charges and fees may be payable on orders/goods entering the EU destination country from the UK. Such charges and fees depend on the contents’ value and origin. Your parcel will not be released until payment has been received. You will be asked to pay these fees on or prior to delivery by your local postal service who will contact youYou, as the customer, are responsible for paying such fees.

- Order value up to €150 (approx £131-00) will be taxed at the border (VAT) plus any handling fees.
- Order value over €150 (approx £131-00) will be taxed at the border (VAT) plus any handling fees and may also incur Customs duties if the goods are made outside the UK/EU.

The shipping costs of your order will be included in the VAT calculations.
Note : Actual shipping costs may be slightly higher or lower than the shipping (delivery) cost paid at the time of ordering.

Many products on sale in the Blue Crumb Truck are sourced from the UK or the EU, therefore no customs duties should be payable on those items, only the VAT plus handling fees.

VAT varies from 17% to 27% in different EU countries, with the average at 20%, in Germany it is 19%.
Some countries have reduced VAT rates for Clothing (which we expect to include T-shirts, Hoodies, Hats, etc) such as Sweden (12%) and Netherlands (9%).

Certain countries such as Finland and - according to some reports, Germany and Italy - will waive the VAT charge if the VAT amount is for less than €5 but this is at the discretion of the local courier / delivery service.

We cannot advise on customs clearance/handling fees at this time, because such fees will vary from country to country and with different couriers. However, most Blue Crumb Truck orders are shipped via the UK's Royal Mail, orders are then transferred to the local post system, in such cases Deutsche Post in Germany charge €6 handling fee, Posti in Finland €2-90 (plus VAT), Poste Italiane €7-50 and Czech Post approx €8.

Please also refer to the section International Customers below for more information about payment of such charges.

We are monitoring the post-Brexit situation and would appreciate hearing from you if you have experienced any issues with delivery.

If you would like advice prior to ordering, please email liz@bluecrumbtruck.com or use the Contact Us form, we will do our best to assist you if possible.

International Customers - VAT and Customs Payments

Our international delivery charges currently exclude customs or duty charges, that is "Delivered Duty Unpaid". As of 1 January 2021 (post-Brexit), customs authorities in the EU will also be applying customs, excise and VAT procedures to goods from the UK. Your order may be subject to such charges according to local legislation, and must be paid by you prior to or on delivery. Any such charges are your sole responsibility. If you are concerned about paying VAT or customs duty on your order, then please check the duty thresholds of your country first before ordering.

If you do not pay the VAT or customs and duties charges applicable to release the parcel to yourself and the goods are returned to us as a result, we will be unable to issue a refund on the goods.
