Import Duties & Taxes
We stock Pod’s in a number of global locations including the UK which covers all of the EU countries and also Las Vegas which covers the United States so as we import directly into these locations all the taxes and duties are calculated and covered in the pricing you see on our site.
Outside of these regions however customers are responsible for an localized taxes and duties that their countries might apply and it is their responsibility to pay for these additional costs when the goods arrive.
Around the world different countries apply different rules and rates and these often change so it is difficult to give a definitive answer on the global rates however the EU HS code for our product is 6306220000 and the USA code is 6306.22.9030.
From our recent experience you could expect to see an 18% duty applied into Canada , 15% into Mexico and between 35% & 100% into South America and this doesn’t include and local GST taxes these a purely duty rates so please ensure you investigate the “total” costs that getting your Pod delivered to your location might be.
We do make this clear in both our terms & conditions and also at the cart stage of the order processing and you will be billed for the delivery cost / any return costs and fee applied should you refuse to pay these charges on arrival of the goods into your country.
We can do everything possible to assist you in ensuring our paperwork is correct and as is required for the county of entry and this may result in us asking you for Tax ID numbers or company Tax information however our hands are tied once it arrives and the duties / taxes are due.
If you are in any doubt please contact the sales department prior to placing your order and they will do whatever they can to assist you firstname.lastname@example.org
Pod Extreme Tents
In 2016 we were approached by Altezza travel a travel company who organise and facilitate trips on Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, They had seen the Pod Elite range and wondered if they would be suitable for harsh mountain environments. After lengthy discussion we advised them that the Elite range would not be suitable however we had been looking at the possibility of introducing an Extreme range of tents for just such environments.
