For all customers in any country, please be aware that Express Shipping terms by DHL require us to indicate all package details in the DHL systems, including type of goods in the parcel, value of goods in the parcel, we also indicate that the shipment is related to commercial goods purchased from our company. 

Loose batteries and extra batteries restrictions

Please note that according to the IATA 2019 Lithium Battery Guidance regulations, we are not allowed to include any spare or loose lithium batteries in the air parcels, therefore we may have to take the CR2032 spare battery out of our VPS-100 Vacuum Pump System kit and only keep the one built-in CR2032 battery.

Quality of Postal Services 

We use the Post NL shipping services for all our standard shipping and we partner with DHL Express for all Express deliveries. All cross-border parcels are being transferred by Post NL to their local postal service partner after the custom clearance in the country of destination. 

All our parcels are shipped with Track & Trace number which can be followed in the www.internationalparceltracking.com systems. The tracking number is automatically sent to customer by email after the order has been shipped from our side.

Due to the nature of both local and international postal services in any country, there is a rare possibility that things can go wrong and the parcel can go missing. Avanta Partners can not accept full liability for the loss of parcels which may happen beyond our reasonable control. We do not compensate or refund the orders lost by the postal service providers but we will take the following steps to help our customers in such unfortunate situation:

- We will initiate the internal investigation with Post NL on the orders which have not been delivered within 14 days AFTER (!) the estimated arrival date. This is a standard Post NL regulation which we have to follow. 

- We will communicate with each customer directly to find an alternative solution in case of urgencies.
