Hazmat Shipping or Shipping Hazardous Materials
Hazmat is an abbreviation for hazardous materials and refers to any item or agent (biological, chemical and physical) which has the potential to cause harm to humans, animals or the environment, either by itself or through interaction with other factors. For Air shipping, the most encountered hazardous materials we experience are perfumes and most items containing alcohols.
Hazmat shipping requires special packaging and extra documentation, therefore it is charged at a slightly higher rate than normal cargo.
The cost for any hazardous shipment includes a mandatory UN fee ($100) for each class of item. To avoid this charge been levied on each customer it is our practice to consolidate and group packages of hazardous shipments from multiple individuals as a single unit when delivering to the Airlines. This way, the UN fee is spread out among numerous customers. However, depending on the size of the shipment, the items can be shipped off immediately based on the customer’s request. All hazardous shipments incur a 25% surcharge to compensate for the higher shipping cost and to cover the mandatory UN fee. The average time for shipping perfumes is hence normally 2 to 3 weeks after it’s received, but may be longer if we don't receive enough quantities to distribute this charge evenly.
We are certified to handle all classes of hazardous materials. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Great Customer Care Service!
I got into some kind of mix up with a perfume I bought from US when I moved to Canada. I never knew Hazmat items couldn't be shipped to Canada from US as I prefer buying my stuffs from US for some personal reasons. I wanted the item to be returned but noticed it would cost me more than having it shipped to Nigeria. So, I decided to contact the customer care for options and a lady named Lizzy assisted and walked me through the process and the issue was sorted out sooner than I expected. I still want to say a big thank you to her for helping out because I was confused at that point since I wasn't in Nigeria and thought it would end up being a bad purchase and business all round. I will recommend Shoptomydoor any day and anytime to any int'l online shopper that wants his/her items sent to Nigeria or anywhere in the World. It's a Nigerian Int'l service that is very reliable and that feels very good to know. Thumbs Up!!! Read Less
