  • Note to international customers: We can ship worldwide where allowed by the Manufacturer. You are responsible for any and all duties or taxes that may apply. (see details below)
    • Customs, Duties, and Taxes: Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to customs brokerage fees, import duties, and taxes after the shipment reaches the destination country. Additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient because we have no control over these government-imposed charges and cannot determine what they may be. Customs policies vary greatly among countries. Therefore, we cannot, and will not, offer advice about taxes in your country. We report the amount of the sale on the Customs form. Please do not ask us to claim less than the actual purchase amount. It is the customers responsibility to know the legality of the metal detectors ordered in their country. Do not order items that are illegal to import into your country. Laws are different in every country and we cannot keep up with them all. It is your responsibility to check with your Customs office to see if your country permits the shipment of our metal detectors to your country.

    • To avoid a delay in receiving your order from customs, consider the following:
    • Provide us with a phone number where you can be reached by customs when your metal detector arrives. This phone number will be listed on the commercial invoice so customs can reach you to clear your order.
    • Please do not refuse a shipment or ignore requests from carriers regarding duty and/or tax liability charges. Be aware that most carriers will hold a shipment for 5 days after arrival in your country before they return it to the sender.
    • We do not refund original shipping charges for goods that are refused for delivery at customs.
    • We will deduct all additional fees resulting from refused international shipments from your refund.
    • If we are charged for YOUR taxes and duties on the shipment or incur any penalty or lawsuit related to your order or shipment, we will post the charge to your credit card.
    • If the package is seized by Customs for any reason and we do not receive the package back, we will NOT issue you a refund since, obviously, local laws and regulations determine the fate of the package. If we do receive the package back after being seized, you are still responsible for the shipping charges and any other fees plus penalties incurred.
    • We ship via UPS and Fedex for most products, USPS for small parts and accessories, and freight for large products.

    QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

    Ask a Question
    • how deep into the ground this detector works

      This question we hear a lot and it's an important one. The short answer is that there are many variables that can affect the depth of metal is detected. VLF (very low frequency) hobby detectors can detect various depths depending on the ground conditions and target size. However, it is known that the size of the coil is usually how deep it will detect. For example, if you have got an 8-inch coil, it will typically detect at a depth of 8 inches.
