February 28, 2024 - Shipping Rates to Australia and the rest of Oceania
For our customers in Australia and Oceania, we are currently investigating new shipping options due to unsustainable rate increases by DHL Express. Shipping to Australia and Oceania is still available from our USA location via DHL Express at an increased rate. If you are in Australia and want to purchase an ATLAS Throttle Lock, we recommend visiting our dealer Rocky Creek Designs in Dunoon, New South Wales!
Winter Season 2024
Well, it’s our least favorite time of year again - the winter season! This is a time when many of us aren’t able to ride, and our bikes sit all cozy in the garage while we dream of riding season to come. On the upside, there’s always winter maintenance and outfitting of our chosen motorcycles with accessories as we eagerly await springtime. Unfortunately, wintertime means winter weather, which of course means the potential for shipping delays. While we will be fulfilling orders as normal, please be advised that winter weather can severely impact local shipping systems, leading to delayed deliveries, even for expedited shipping services. All orders ship with tracking, so you will be able to monitor the course of your order as it makes its way to you. Just please note that if your order sits for a couple of extra days somewhere, it may be delayed by winter weather, or even some holiday overflow through the early part of January.

VAT for EU and Non-EU Countries in Europe: We charge VAT for all EU orders where VAT is required. Since we ship from the Netherlands, we charge 21% VAT. This will be charged during checkout. Additional fees may apply depending on the recipient country's laws, and will be charged by the carrier before final delivery. If you are not charged VAT during checkout, then you will pay VAT when your order arrives to your country. Please note that if the Netherlands shipping location is out of stock on the item you order, your order may be shipped from the US. In this case, if you were charged VAT fees at checkout, they will be refunded to you, and you will be notified by email. You will then pay for VAT fees when your order arrives to your country. Note that these fees may be more or less than if the order ships from the Netherlands, depending on your country's laws regarding taxation of imported items. We have no control over these charges and are unable to predict what they may be. Any taxes and fees necessary for final delivery will be the responsibility of the customer. We will not devalue goods on customs documentation for the purpose of lowering the customer's tax burden. In the event of a return, VAT and other import taxes and fees not charged by ATLAS Throttle Lock are non-refundable.
VAT for All Other Countries: All prices listed on the website and checkout process are not inclusive of VAT or any other import tax or fee - including, but not limited to, Federal, State, Provincial, or Local level taxes and any processing fees charged by the shipping carriers in addition to these taxes - unless otherwise stated. We do not charge these fees at checkout as we have no way to determine what they may be or pay them in the customer's stead. In the case of a return, no compensation will be given to the buyer for these costs. Consult your local tax authority for information regarding any reimbursement of import costs in the event your order is returned. We will not devalue goods on customs documentation for the purpose of lowering the customer's tax burden.

The prices for shipping costs listed above are quoted in US dollars. Unless otherwise specified, all prices on the website are quoted in US dollars. Click the drop-down list of currencies at the bottom right of each page to change the website currency on the order pages and in the checkout. Currency conversions are automatically controlled by Shopify and are subject to constant change, therefore currency conversion accuracy may vary slightly and is not the responsibility of ATLAS Throttle Lock. Product prices are not inclusive of VAT, GST, or any other form of import taxes and duty. Any taxes and duty due, where applicable, will be shown at checkout. At this time, ATLAS Throttle Lock only charges VAT on shipments to locations within the European Union. These fees are based on 21% Dutch VAT. Any other taxes and fees due for final delivery will be the responsibility of the customer.
Shipping costs are subject to change without notice and may be higher on orders of multiple products. Shipping will be calculated during the checkout process. Unless specified at checkout, any shipping costs do not include any customs or duty charges necessary for a product to be imported into the destination country. Depending on various circumstances, some shipping methods may be discontinued or added, with or without notice.
Shipping times are an approximation only and are not guaranteed by the carrier, with the exception of some Express shipping options. Shipping times quoted on the website are after the item ships, unless otherwise noted. All orders (excluding Soft Goods), standard and express, will ship within two business days in most cases, with most shipping by next business day depending on the time of order placement. If we cannot meet this commitment, you will be notified by email of any delays on our end. In some cases, shipping may take more or less time depending on factors outside the control of ATLAS Throttle Lock, including - but not limited to - customs delays, weather events, difficulties with the carrier finding addresses, postal strikes, and collection of taxes and fees. Soft Goods items such as T-shirts and Hoodies are made to order and fulfilled by our partners at Printful. Because of this, Soft Goods items have a 6-11 day lead time and are shipped separately from other items ordered. Printful occasionally will discontinue certain items without notice, or they may be out of stock. In the event your order cannot be fulfilled as placed due to product unavailability at Printful, Printful will automatically ship a comparable product. In the event of returns, shipping charges are non-refundable and no compensation can be given for taxes and fees levied for original delivery. Soft Goods do not have a 30 day money back guarantee and may only be returned in brand new, unopened, unworn, unwashed condition at the sole discretion of ATLAS Throttle Lock, who may deny returns of Soft Goods for any reason.
For orders shipping internationally via DHL Standard, please note it is common for your package to be routed to the DHL Processing Center in Frankfurt, Germany, regardless of final delivery location. For example, orders to South America via DHL Standard will still be sent to Germany for processing, even though we ship from the USA. Please note processing times in Germany can sometimes take weeks to finish, depending on multiple factors beyond our control. Please also note that DHL Standard shipments may see multiple days without tracking updates and this is completely normal for this type of economy shipping. We recommend choosing the DHL Express option at checkout if you wish to receive your order faster.
For shipments to Canada, please be aware that DHL will typically levy brokerage and maintenance fees when the package enters the country, in addition to any local, federal, or provincial taxes . These fees will be collected by the final delivery carrier (typically Canada Post) before the package is delivered or picked up by the customer. We understand that USPS typically does not charge brokerage fees, however this service may experience longer transit times than DHL. Any taxes and fees necessary for final delivery will be the responsibility of the customer.
Please note that while we do our best here at ATLAS to assist with shipping related issues, we are unable to work with the shipping carriers directly to determine the whereabouts of packages. There are multiple reasons for this, but chiefly shipping carrier customer service agents don't know any more than what the tracking number shows. Tracking information is provided by the carrier for informational purposes only and may not be updated on a daily basis, depending on factors completely outside of the control of ATLAS Throttle Lock. We are not able to make shipments move more quickly by inquiring with the carrier.
For orders shipping to outlying European territories not physically within Europe (such as island territories or departments), shipping may occur from our USA warehouse instead of our Netherlands warehouse. This is due to the often remote nature of these locations, which may impact our ability to ship from our Netherlands warehouse. Shipping to these locations may be considerably slower than quoted shipping times.
Accuracy of address and phone number for delivery is the responsibility of the customer. Orders will be shipped to the address exactly as it is entered. Packages that are returned to us due to an incorrect or incomplete address - or due to the delivery location being inaccessible or outside of the delivery area of the carrier - will be resent, but additional shipping charges may be applied. We will notify the customer to get the correct address before attempting to resend and before charging for any additional shipping costs. If a carrier mentioned in the tables on this page does not deliver to your address, please contact us prior to placing your order.
Shipping costs are non-refundable. We do not refund shipping charges for any reason.
