Bell Electronics Shipping Information
All orders are shipped FOB from a stocking Bell Electronics location. We charge for shipping and handling. Handling is the cost of the packaging and varies from item to item. We recommend using United Parcel Service, Federal Express, or DHL to help ensure careful handling and prompt delivery of your order.
All fragile and high-value products are packed to industry standards, reducing the possibility of shipping damage. Oversized or overweight items, such as big power supplies, are boxed and/or put on a pallet and shipped via motor freight. Shipping charges can be added to your invoice; however, customers are encouraged, wherever possible, to use their own Federal Express, DHL, or UPS shipping account numbers and have the shipping charges billed directly.
Any shipping charges quoted by Bell Electronics are exclusive of any: import/export brokerage fees, duties, licenses, taxes, tariffs, or other import fees.
