Are there additional fees for handling oversized items (furniture, car parts, etc)?

Updated by Sandy

We can assist with purchasing oversized items but they may require a special repacking fee depending on how they arrive at our warehouse. If the seller ships the item in a box that is fit for international shipment, then no additional fee will apply. However, if we need to create or order custom boxes or perform special packing, there may be an extra charge for the service.

When purchasing furniture, large car parts, or other unusually shaped items we recommend allowing at least 1000-2000 yen in your budget for repacking to be safe. Please also be sure to always estimate your international shipping costs in advance with our shipping calculator. Size, in particular, can have a big impact on the price of shipping to you for these items.

To help you estimate the repacking fee, here is a table of the most common oversized items we handle and the associated repacking fee if the item does not arrive with sufficient packing for international shipment:
