International Shipping

The Exit Light Co., Inc ships internationally. Available products, shipping rates and fees may vary depending on the delivery address for your order.

Please note that if your order is placed for delivery to Alaska, Hawaii, Canada or other territories, you will incur additional charges.

The total shipping charge is based on the weight of each item being shipped. You can calculate the shipping charges by visiting or and entering the total shipping weight of your order from Origin Zip Code 92081. If you prefer, you may contact our office for assistance before you submit your order. In most cases, the shipping charge will not be correctly calculated at time of checkout and we will advise you via email of the additional shipping cost of your order for approval before we ship. Please contact us for further information.

When orders shipped internationally reach the destination country, they may be subject to customs clearance procedures which can cause delays beyond original delivery estimates.

Your packages may be subject to the customs fees and import duties of the country to which you have your order shipped. These charges are always the recipient's responsibility.

Restrictions: We're sorry, but Priority International Shipping is not available for P.O. Box addresses.


For products shipped internationally, please note that any manufacturer warranty may not be valid; manufacturer service options may not be available; product manuals, instructions and safety warnings may not be in destination country languages; the products (and accompanying materials) may not be designed in accordance with destination country standards, specifications, and labeling requirements; and the products may not conform to destination country voltage and other electrical standards (requiring use of an adapter or converter if appropriate). You are responsible for assuring that the product can be lawfully imported to the destination country. When ordering from The Exit Light Co., Inc., the recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country.


Your privacy is important to us, and we know that you care about how information about your order is used and shared. We would like our international customers and customers shipping products internationally to be aware that cross-border shipments are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.

Also, we may provide certain order, shipment, and product information, to our international carriers, and such information may be communicated by the carriers to customs authorities in order to facilitate customs clearance and comply with local laws.

Customs authorities require the value of the order to be stated directly on the package.

Returns & Replacements

The above terms (including, if applicable, terms related to the Import Fees) also apply to the shipment of any replacement product that might be shipped if there is a problem with the original shipment. If you return a product to us, you will be the exporter from the destination country. Title and risk of loss transfer to us upon receipt at our fulfillment centers. Please contact us for further information.

Customs, Duties, and Taxes

Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the U.S. may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country ("Import Fees"). The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such Import Fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.

Shipping to APO/FPO Addresses & Other Locations

APO & FPO Addresses

Having trouble entering an APO or FPO address on our order form? Following these steps should help:


City Field:

Enter "APO" or "FPO."


State/Province/Region Field:

Enter the two-letter code for the region where the recipient is stationed. Typically, but not always, the code is "AE" for recipients stationed in Europe, Canada, Africa, or the Middle East; "AA" for recipients stationed in the Americas; and "AP" for recipients stationed in Asia or the Pacific.


Country Field:

Always select "United States" from the drop-down menu regardless of where the recipient is stationed.

Following these steps will ensure that you're charged the correct shipping amount and that your order will be delivered in a timely fashion. All shipments to APO/FPO addresses are sent via U.S. Priority or First Class Mail. We estimate 5 to 7 business days for delivery once the order has been shipped; however, some destinations may take up to 21 days.

Guam and U.S. Protectorates/Insular Areas

Having trouble with addresses for Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands (U.S.), Guam, American Samoa, Marshall Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, Palau, or Federated States of Micronesia? Following these steps should help:


Country Field:

Select the correct name from the drop-down menu. Do not choose "United States."


ZIP Code Field:

Always double-check for the correct ZIP code.

Commercial Mail Receiving Agency (CMRA) Addresses

If you're a private mailbox holder (use a local commercial mail receiving agency), do not use "Box" for your mailbox number; instead, use # or PMB. This will help make sure that your address is not mistaken for a P.O. Box, and that orders can ship to you via means other than the U.S. Postal Service.

Large Orders

For orders containing large quantities of merchandise shipping to a single address, please email or call during regular business hours (Monday through Friday 8:00AM-5:00PM PST, excluding holidays).

Overdue Delivery

Products in our warehouse generally ship within 1-2 days of placing the order; however, on occasion, the item may temporarily be out of stock. If you have not received your order in the time expected, please contact one of our customer support representatives during regular business hours (Monday through Friday 8:00AM-5:00PM PST, excluding holidays).

Order Cancellations

Unshipped items can be cancelled as long as the item was not manufactured or customized specifically for your order. Some items, while they can be cancelled, involve a manufacturer's cancellation fee, for which the customer is liable. Approved refunds will be processed within 7 days via original payment method.
