Methods of Shipping

Hummingbird Express (The Faster Method)
The Hummingbird Express is a courier delivery service which is powered by DHL providing high priority delivery. It is a quick and reliable service offering 1-3 Day delivery to the door in the United States of America, United Kingdom, Canada and the Caribbean.

The 'True Cost' of Shipping
Caribbean Nostalgia calculates shipping costs for both Hummingbird Express Econo (Powered by DHL) and Hummingbird Express (Powered by DHL by physical weight. This provides the truest representation of the cost of products as it relates to the cost of the shipping, allowing for significant savings as more products are purchased. Other popular methods such as "Free Shipping", which basically adds the shipping cost per product and the product cost, appear simpler but proves much more expensive for the customer when multiple items are purchased because the full cost of shipping is paid repeatedly for each item.

Duties and Taxes
You may be required to pay duties and taxes to claim your package, depending on your local customs office. We are unable to determine duties and taxes in advance, and are unable to control these additional charges. We encourage you to contact your local postal service or customs bureau for more specific information. You can find estimates online here. Historically, In the US and Canada there are no added duty and taxes accrued.
Once an order is made, Caribbean Nostalgia is committed to the delivery to you, our customers. This means we would continue to actively track and monitor the shipment to assure delivery and in the off chance delivery is not made we are prepared to send another shipment through an alternative method. Everyone deserves to enjoy high quality Caribbean Art and we live by this credo.
