Import Taxes & Custom Duties

When a package is shipped internationally, it may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed by the destination country. You are responsible for ensuring to comply with laws and regulations of the country of destination. Brick Tanks does not accept any responsibility of any additional charges that may apply.


Many other sellers take the COBI or CaDA box and simply put that in a plastic bag (poly bag). Often this results in the product packaging being damaged on arrival. We know many collectors would like the product box in pristine condition. So we take the product box and put them in a outer box as well as plenty of internal packaging to help reduce damage.So when comparing our prices with other sellers, consider if you want to receive the COBI or CaDA box in good condition, best to order from BrickTanks.


When we dispatch your item you will receive a email with tracking number.

PO Boxes

Please note while it is possible to enter a PO box as your delivery address when placing an order on our website. Couriers can not actually deliver packages to PO Boxes, so will return the item to us. All shipping costs will be borne by the customer, this can loose a lot of time and money especially for international orders. Make sure the shipping/delivery address is a location that can receive parcels.
