Shipping only option is for customers who are able to place their own orders online without needing us to assist. This is also the right option for customers in the USA shopping & shipping to their loved ones in Kenya by air cargo.

Kindly read through this short page.

It answers almost any questions you may have about the shipping-only option.

Kindly Watch This short Video Explanation

What is a Warehouse Code?

We take safety & privacy very seriously. Warehouse code is a unique 2 letters and 4 digits code we assign to receivers in Kenya.

If you are in the USA sending a package to a loved one, create an account and add your receiver name & phone number to your account. A unique warehouse code for the receiver will be generated for you. 

Instead of addressing packages with a phone number visible to the public, we use a unique code that tells us who is the receiver without revealing the phone number to the public.

The warehouse code also eliminates delivery mistakes due to common similar names. Some names in Kenya like John Mwangi are too common that without a unique identifier, it is possible to make a delivery mistake.

Air Shipping Pricing Explained

Chargeable weight is determined by whichever is larger between actual weight and volumetric weight at $15/kg. This is a standard practice worldwide in all air cargo.

An Example of Volumetric Charge:

In the scenario below the chargeable weight for this box is 9.9kg although the actual weight is 5kg. The total cost of shipping this box ould be 9.9kg x $15 = $148.50

Here is an Example 

Shipping chargeable weight calculation

Actual Weight Charge

In situations where the actual weight is larger than the volumetric weight (commonest), your packages will be charged based on the actual weight.

Assuming the box above actual weight is 12kg, the actual weight is higher than the volume weight. In this case, your total shipping cost would be 12kg x $15 = $180

Here is an example

Freight Insurance

Shipping is a risky business worldwide, especially due to shipments being handled by different agencies across the globe. 

Packages have also gone missing, especially when going through customs clearance in different parts of the world. 

We do insure your packages up to $200. Any items above this value require a 5% supplemental non-refundable insurance charged to the customers. 

Phones & electronics of any kind must be insured. This category is not optional due to the inherent high risk of theft and damage in transit.

We reserve the right to decline high-value, high-risk uninsured goods. 

Freight Insurance = 5% of Items valued over $200.

 

Prohibited Goods

Air cargo is a highly regulated business due to the inherent risk of anything happening to an aircraft while in the air. 

There are a number of prohibited goods that you must be aware of before you send in your shipment. Some of the most common dangerous goods are:

  • Power banks or any stand-alone lithium batteries (laptop batteries, phone batteries, camera batteries, etc)
  • Colognes, perfumes, & nail polishes
  • Anything flammable
  • Anything corrosive
  • Anything poisonous
  • Any oxidizing agent

Here is the full list of prohibited goods.
