FOR ITEMS IN JAPAN STOCK:

  • STANDARD SHIPPING: Standard shipping is a Sea freight shipping method. It is the lowest cost shipping but is also very slow and can take from 8 to 16 weeks as it is dependant on Sea liner schedules. DO NOT use this shipping method for time critical items as you may be disappointed with the shipping timeframe.
  • JAPAN AIR: This is a much faster shipping method for items from Japan. Air freight usually takes from 2 to 4 weeks depending on stock availability.


FOR ITEMS IN UK/EU STOCK:

  • STANDARD SHIPPING: Standard shipping is a 2 business day service to the UK/Ireland and a 3-6 day service to most of the rest of Europe. Deliveries worldwide outside of this area usually take about 2 weeks.


FOR ITEMS IN CONTAINER FREIGHT TO EU/UK:

  • STANDARD SHIPPING: These items are already loaded in a Shipping Container sailing from Japan to the UK. The container vessel usually takes approximately 6 to 8 weeks and forward shipping of the individual items to their final destinations will be completed when the container arrives.
    Once the container is unloaded, Standard shipping is a 2 business day service to the UK/Ireland and a 3-6 day service to most of the rest of Europe. Deliveries worldwide outside of this area usually take about 2 weeks.


** SPECIAL NOTES ** :

  • FOR ORDERS CONTAINING ITEMS FROM BOTH UK & JAPAN
    Your UK based items will be sent via the fastest method available, i.e. 2 business day service in the UK. Your Japan based items will be shipped based on your selection of Standard Shipping or Japan Air as per the shipping methods above.
  • FOR OVERSIZE ITEMS LIKE ENGINES
    If you are ordering an oversize item like an engine the shipping time will vary substantially depending on where you are. If you need a precise delivery period please contact us for details.

    This company and all employees have been quick to respond, easy to work with and have been nothing but respectful and intelligible about every area of my order. Even during the challenges of covid. The only recommendation I have is adding more information about US shipments and documentation for "HS-7 National Highway Traffic Safety" under United States CBP. This form requires information from the company which is shipping pre-owned transportation items internationally; or from the manufacturer if the item is not previously used. ...Or so I understand. Haven't even heard of it until covid19. This document limits the response time to FIVE DAYS (from the time the item comes off the container at US Customs) and TNT/FedEx waited until day 6 to notify anyone that the document existed and required specific information. The penalty for failing to respond within the US CBP's unrealistic and circumstantially intolerant 5-day time limit is that the item(s) are returned to their country of origin. Just to clarify: As I currently understand it, THIS IS NOT the fault of JDM Distro or the fault of any JDMD employee!
