Updated: July 13th 2020

So far the Covid-19 pandemic has had no impact on our production, but unfortunately on worldwide shipping. Different carriers had to announce shipping restrictions to some countries. 

In the following you find a list of the current shipping status sorted country by country:

Austria: No impact. We will ship as planned.

Brasil Shipping of Size XS and Size S and M is possible again.

How to continue?

First of all, I am very very sorry and I apologize to everyone whose shipment is affected by these restrictions! We did everything we could to deliver on time, but the current situation was just not foreseeable. I deeply apologize for the inconvenience. 

But right now, we try to find solutions. DHL told me several times, that the shipping restrictions and surcharges are very temporarily. The situation gets evaluated from day to day to get back to normal as quick as possible. Here is a link to the official status page of DHL. As soon as the little circle next to your country turns from orange or red to green we are able to ship. All orders will stay here and be ready for this moment. DHL live status (Scroll down to “International Mail and Parcel Services”)

Alternatives? 

International and oversea shipping can be very costly. Therefore many of our parcels and packagings are custom made to fit exactly the dimensions of DHL’s products. This makes it quite difficult to find alternatives that are comparable or at least on the same level in terms of cost. While we monitor the current situation and hope that the restrictions are removed very soon, we are also looking for alternative shipping channels. 

For those who can’t wait any longer to get their CITY FRAME, we will try to offer custom shipping solutions. Most express services are still in operation worldwide, but their use is understandably associated with significant additional costs. Please leave us a message if you are interested.
