For orders placed online, we provide the option to ship to a different address than the one at which your card is registered. For security reasons, this service is discretionary, and we reserve the right to only ship to the billing address, or verify details with our customers before shipping to a different address. If you have made a mistake with your delivery details contact us immediately and we can try to amend them. Orders placed over the telephone must be shipped to the billing address. If the order has already left our office, then the delivery address cannot be changed. In this instance we will need to wait for the parcel to be returned then postage would be payable for it to be sent out again.
I have been asked for additional information?
Occasionally we may carry out security checks on orders; there are many reasons we may elect to carry out one of these check including our policy of random spot checks. If you have been asked to supply additional information please be aware that we cannot begin the dispatch process until the information is received. We use the utmost discression and security with any information we are sent.

Can someone else sign for my delivery?
They certainly can. Balar accepts no responsibility if the signature received at the delivery address is not the recipient, and will consider this parcel correctly delivered.
Do I have to pay Customs & import charges?
Any customs or import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel.
Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges, and cannot tell you what the cost would be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country. It might be a good idea to contact your local customs office for current charges before you order, so you are not surprised by charges you were not expecting. Please note that this is the main reason non-EU customers receive a 20% VAT discount.
Any parcels returned to us due to customs charges being higher than expected, we reserve the right to refund the transaction minus all costs incurred.
Customers ordering from the Republic of South Korea will receive an FTA document with their parcel.
Can you mark the parcel as a gift or the value of the goods lower so I don’t have to pay customs charges?
Unfortunately we cannot as this is against the law. Random spot checks are common, and we are responsible when caught.
I have been contacted for further information for by country customs department?
Each country will have their own goods import procedures and these can vary across countries. From our experience USA customs do require at times further details of a high value orders, such as manufacturer details/irs number at times. If you have an order in customs, please contact Customer Service on email@example.com, or 0161 831 7781 quoting your order no and we can help you resolve the matter as fast as possible.
Why hasn’t my order arrived yet?
International shipments can occasionally take longer than expected- goods can be held up in customs or there can be delays during the handover from one country to another. If you’re an international customer and your order hasn’t arrived after 7 working days from despatch, please firstname.lastname@example.org & we will investigate for you.
Please check that you haven’t received a card from the couriers.
