We will be updating this information as and when our deals are finalised with the EU. From what we can see, if we remain in the Customs Union, there will be no change in the cost of sending our products to the EU. However, if we leave with a No Deal or with a Deal without being in the Customs Union, then unfortunately our customers will have to pay Import Duty on their Order. For the latest on Brexit please see our Brexit page HERE.
International / EU Shipping
We use DPD or UPS to deliver to all current EU destinations as well as all other European countries. Delivery is FREE to selected EU Countries, if the order value is over £150. Delivery is also FREE to other selected EU Countries if the order value is over £200. Please add the product to your shopping basket and select your country to see how much it is. Delivery to the Canary Islands is not free, the price currently is £75 for one helmet and we will contact the customer to let them know how to pay the additional amount. We deliver to most other worldwide destinations and a live quote is given during the checkout process. Simply enter your postcode, town and country and the system will give you an accurate price for DPD Delivery based on the destination and volumetric weight of the order. Helmet City cannot be held responsible for any taxes or any other import charges your country may impose for importation of your order. Please await confirmation of despatch before pre-paying any VAT or taxes that may be due. Please contact your country's custom office to check if you are liable to incur importation charges.

Care of your parcel
Your satisfaction is essential to Helmet city, which is why we use DPD and Royal Mail to send our products. ALL helmets are checked manually by us prior to despatch and are then placed into a brand new strong brown cardboard box. This protects the helmet and makes it easy for the customer to check for damage.
