Simply create an account, and you'll receive your shipping address and client code. Use that address when filling the delivery address in online stores. If you'd like to receive goods from friends and family, you can give them the same address.
Goods are dispatched from the US / UK weekly and it takes about 10 days from the US, and 7 days from the UK. We can do doorstep deliveries in Nairobi as well as in all the other counties.
Search for the item from various suppliers, don't just buy from the first shop that you find it at. You can also look for the items from the both countries - US and UK. Lookout for sales by subscribing to newsletters.
Also keep in mind that goods from the US are generally cheaper than goods from the UK, but the weight fees for goods from the US are almost twice the weight fees of goods from the UK.
To find the better deal, find your item from both the US and the UK, then generate an instant quotation with the shipping fee calculator. Generally, if the item is heavy, it's cheaper to get it from the UK, if it's not heavy, get it from the US.
It is important that you understand the difference between actual weight and volumetric weight, and when they are used.
Actual weight is the weight of your goods as it reads on the scale, while volumetric weight is weight based on the volume (space) that your goods take.
To get the volumetric weight, multiply the Length x Width x Height (cm), then divide the answer by 6,000.
The weight bill will be based on either the actual weight or the volumetric weight, whichever is greater.
Why? An aircraft can transport very light goods that take-up lots of space, or very dense and heavy goods such as iron, which will quickly cause the aircraft the reach the maximum takeoff weight, without fully utilizing all the space in the aircraft.
In the first case when an aircraft is transporting lightweight goods that take up lots of space, the aircraft will not be profitable if they charge based on actual weight, that because the goods will be very light, yet taking up lots or all the space. The aircraft will have to know what their space is worth, so that when volumetric weight is greater than the actual weight, they will bill based on volumetric weight, thus allowing them to meet their operational costs, and be profitable.
In the second case, when an aircraft is transporting dense and heavy items, the aircraft will reach its maximum takeoff weight without all the space in the aircraft being utilized. In that case, the airlines will not be profitable if they bill based on the volume because heavy dense goods will use up less space. In order for the airlines to meet their operational costs and be profitable, they will need to know what their maximum takeoff weight is worth, then bill based on actual weight, when actual weight of the cargo is greater than the volumetric weight.
