Air Shipping from Dubai to Kenya
|Mode of Shipping|| Air Shipping.
Length of time for goods to get to Kenya: Five Days. If there's a deadline or if you need your items in Kenya by a certain date, kindly let us know before the goods are shipped to us. This is extremely important.
We ship items twice a week; on Monday and Thursday 10:00am. Make sure your items get to our address by Monday / Thursday 10:00am (Dubai Time) otherwise they’ll be shipped a week later. The items get to Kenya five days later and will be delivered to your place or you can choose to pick them up at our office in Karen.
|Charges||$7 (Kshs 700) per kilogram . The only other additional charge is what we call a handling fee that applies to the whole shipment you bring in within a single week. Again, we'd like to stress that the handling fee is not per kilogram. It is per weekly shipment and is inclusive of all customs and taxes on all your goods shipped into Kenya in a single week meaning we'll take care of customs and any other tax issues). For instance, if you were to bring in a number of packages weighing 10 kilograms within Week 1, the only charges you'd pay are:
Week 1. Assume you bring in total shipment weight of 10 kilograms. Total charges will be:
► Weight charges = (10 kilograms * Kshs 700) = Kshs 7000
► Handling Fee = Kshs 1500
Thus total charges = Kshs 7000 weight charges + Kshs 1500 handling fee = Kshs 8500 . There are no other charges. That’s all you pay and you can pick up your items from our office or we can deliver to you for free within Karen
|How is weight calculated||Some companies that ship items to Kenya calculate their weight based on volumetric measurements which is something that inflates the bill unncessarily. We don’t do that. We only calculate weight by placing the items on a weight scale or using the weight recorded by the company that shipped the items to our address in Dubai since they also weigh items on scale|
|Are there any weight limits||Yes. 10 kgs minimum. When sending packages to our address in Dubai, please ensure they weigh 10 kilograms or more. If they weigh less, you shall be charged at the rate of 10kgs. The handling fee still applies regardless of the weight of an item|
|Time for goods to get to Kenya||Five Days. We ship items twice a week; on Monday and Thursday 10:00am.
