Air Shipping from UK to Kenya                         
Mode of Shipping Air Shipping.
Length of time for goods to get to Kenya: Seven to Ten Days. If there's a deadline or if you need your items in Kenya by a certain date, kindly let us know before the goods are shipped to us. This is extremely important.
We ship items once a week; on Friday 11:00am. Make sure your items get to our address by Fri 10:00am (London Time) otherwise they’ll be shipped a week later. The items get to Kenya seven to ten days later and will be delivered to your place or you can choose to pick them up at our office in Karen.
Charges£5.80 (Kshs 780) per kilogram . The only other additional charge is what we call a handling fee that applies to the whole shipment you bring in within a single week. Again, we'd like to stress that the handling fee is not per kilogram. It is per weekly shipment and is inclusive of all customs and taxes on all your goods shipped into Kenya in a single week meaning we'll take care of customs and any other tax issues)For instance, if you were to bring in a number of packages weighing 10 kilograms within Week 1, the only charges you'd pay are:

Week 1. Assume you bring in total shipment weight of 10 kilograms. Total charges will be:
Weight charges = (10 kilograms * Kshs 780) = Kshs 7800
Handling Fee = Kshs 1500

Thus total charges = Kshs 7800 weight charges + Kshs 1500 handling fee = Kshs 9300 . There are no other charges. That’s all you pay and you can pick up your items from our office or we can deliver to you for free within Karen



Week 2. Assume you bring in total shipment weight of ½ a kilogram. Total charges will be:
Weight charges = (½ a kilogram * Kshs 780) = Kshs 390
Handling Fee = Kshs 1500

Thus total charges = Kshs 390 weight charges + Kshs 1500 handling fee = Kshs 1890 . There are no other charges. That’s all you pay and you can pick up your items from our office or we can deliver to you for free within Karen

We are transparent. Weight for your items will always be measured in your presence

How is weight calculatedSome companies that ship items to Kenya calculate their weight based on volumetric measurements which is something that inflates the bill unncessarily. We don’t do that. We only calculate weight by placing the items on a weight scale or using the weight recorded by the company that shipped the items to our address in the UK (e.g. ParcelMonkey) since they also weigh items on scale
Are there any weight limitsNo. You can send an item that weighs a few grams to as much as a tonne. Weight for this will still be calculated normally. Kshs 780 per kilogram. Kshs 78 per 100 grams. Kshs 7.8 for ten grams. That simple. But remember; the handling fee still applies regardless of the weight of an item
Time for goods to get to KenyaSeven to Ten Days. We ship items once a week; on Friday 11:00am. Make sure your items get to our address by Fri 10:00am (London Time) otherwise they’ll be shipped a week later. The items get to Kenya five to eight days later and will be delivered to your place or you can choose to pick them up at our address in Kenya below
