SHIPPING / ORDERING FAQ
Last updated on: August 14, 2020
ORDERS STILL SHIPPING DAILY
We are taking all the CDC-recommended steps in our corporate office and warehouse to help protect and support our production teams and you, we worked overtime to process the product as quickly as possible. Whilst we endeavour to dispatch your orders within our timeframes, some experiences you may encounter are completely out of our control and are due to new policies being implemented within domestic couries.
Customer service is our number one priority here at TAKA Original and we understand the postal service delays have been somewhat disappointing for a lot of customers. To get your parcels delivered to you quicker, we have made some changes, for some countries that are currently expericing delays. We are shifting from postal services to DHL/FEDEX to ensure more visibility into your tracking, faster delivery and reliability. Please see the shipping table below for your new shipping options.
Please note: All deliveries to Russia/Kuwait have been temporarily suspended. Due to this, any customers attempting to checkout cannot do so until deliveries resume.
