How much does international shipping cost?
International shipping is calculated based on a number of factors including the desired service level (Standard/Express), the number of items you are purchasing, the weight of the items, and the destination country/region. International shipping will be calculated and guaranteed during the Borderfree global checkout based on the Crate and Barrel items you are purchasing and your shipping destination.
When am I billed?
Your credit card will be billed by Borderfree at the time your parcel(s) leave the U.S.
How much duty and taxes are charged on international orders?
Duty (or customs tariffs) is set by the destination country customs authorities and is determined based on a combination of the country of origin or manufacturing of the goods being purchased, and the classification of that merchandise in accordance with a harmonized system adopted and used by the countries that Borderfree supports. Value Added Tax (VAT) rates are set by the destination country. You will be able to view the guaranteed total amount of applicable duty and tax/VAT for your order within the Borderfree global checkout.
Are there any items that cannot ship to my country because they are restricted?
If, for some reason, there are any Crate and Barrel items that cannot be exported from the U.S. or imported into your destination country selection, Borderfree will notify you during the checkout process.
Do you ship to U.S. military addresses (APO/FPO)?
Orders shipping to U.S. military addresses should go through our domestic checkout, as they are not subject to the same costs and logistics flows as our other international orders. To do this, you should shop as if shipping to an address within the U.S.
Do you ship furniture items internationally?
At this time, oversized items (including furniture) are ineligible for shipping via our global partner Borderfree. However, you may still order oversized Crate and Barrel items for international delivery by first completing our International Quote Form.
