Additional Services and Fees

Consolidation

For the USA
14,000 UGX per tracking number. If you are planning on shipping several small and light items which will be delivered separately to the US address, it might be more economical to have us consolidate them and charge you according to the sum of their weight (that is instead of weighing each separate delivery and rounding up to the nearest pound).

Insurance

Insurance on items valued more than 200 USD:
7% of the item’s value
Our regular service fee includes liability for up to 200 USD, against theft, for any tracking number that was confirmed to have reached our US address, upon showing its receipt of purchase.
If you are planning on shipping an item which is valued more than 200 USD and you would like to insure it for damage and theft, we will charge 7% of the value you would like to insure.
For instance, if you would like to insure a camera valued 1,000 USD, it will cost you 7% of 1,000 USD, which is a total of 70 USD.
That amount must be paid prior to shipment from the USA to UG.

Shipping Dangerous Goods

If your items can be mistaken, perceived, or can be related to dangerous goods please provide us with the MSDS (Manufacturer’s Safety Data Sheet) to have them validated and authorized by us. After you provide us with an MSDS we will check and confirm whether we are able to send your item as a regular generic cargo or if your item has been classified as a Dangerous Good. If so, we will still be able to ship your item but that may incur extra charges and may prolong delivery time. Read More here - https://www.buy2africa.com/shopping-blog/avoid-dangerous-good
