Self Collection or Warehouse Pick up

If there is no courier option listing a "Free Shipping" option, do not select "Self Collection or Warehouse Pick up" to complete our order, if you do not intend on retrieving your parcel in person at the designated warehouse.  Self-collection or In-person pickup is not a free shipping option as there is no courier assigned to the order. Other shipping options with their appropriate fees may be listed on the checkout screen. Please contact Customer Service using live chat or social media immediately so we can assist.

If you accidentally selected "Self Collection or Warehouse Pick up" and do not intend to pick it up at the warehouse, the order will not ship out. Please contact Customer Service immediately so we can assist.

If you do actually intend to do Self Collection, your local warehouse will contact you for the next steps. Pick up at your warehouse OR let the warehouse communicate with you to sort out:

  1. Pick up at warehouse OR
  2. If you do not intend to pick it up at the warehouse but have chosen this option, it will imply there was no shipping option available.

Please be aware that selecting the "Self Collection or Warehouse Pick up" when other shipping options are available will result in additional charges incurred to you.

The warehouse will contact you to communicate with the option 1) and 2) above mentioned.  For sales orders that do not reach the free shipping threshold, and there is no courier shipping option with a fee, the warehouse will quote the price for special delivery to you. 

Note: Sales orders that reach the free shipping threshold will remain free for shipping.

    For EU to EU location for large package (king twin) you have to wait for a mail for choosing the transport methode. Takes much longer then 2 day's. Big package was 400Euro.

    Γιατί εξαιρείται την Ελλάδα από τα δωρεάν μεταφορικά; Είναι στην Ε.Ε όπως η Ιταλία, και τις υπόλοιπες χώρες που συμπεριλαμβάνετε. Χάνετε καλούς πελάτες... Δυστυχώς!

    I think I've gotten about 64 orders from HK. I've never been disappointed. Free shipping over $100 was a super bonus from the U.S. warehouse but I understand why you could not hold the line on the $100 amount.. The U.S. mail, UPS, and FedEx have all increased prices dramatically since I began our business relationship. Thanks for the free shipping, even at $200. One of your main competitors just raised prices on everything, including 20% increases on all their kits. Inflation is here, even in the hobby. Your bargains make up for it.

    Why advertise product if it can not be shipped. It’s a gimmick show micro engineering buildings on sale because you can not ship them.

    Hobby King is losing sales because the weights they have for the products are wrong. A set of pushrods for a Volatntex 1600 is 240 grams, while pushrods for the 2000/2400 weight only 8.4 grams. Add a $5 motor to your $200 order and the shipping goes ups $2.

    In a little while, no one will buy from HK.
    The reason is that we find the same prices and lower from elsewhere, with less or no shipping costs.

    A few years ago, my purchases were at 100X from what I do to you now. I hope you understand this quickly enough, for the good of us all.

    Either Hobby King doesn't want UK business or they messed up big time. I tried to order a plane but the carriage was almost as much as the price of the plane. I thought, maybe I could order 10, sell nine, and share the carriage cost. No, the carriage went up 10 fold too.Get it together Hobby King, I really want this plane, but not that much

    I just tried to purchase a plane, the shipping was almost 50% the cost of the plane! When I asked HK why shipping was so high they simply said the shipping is automatically calculated. That was real helpful🙄 I understand prices are up on everything but paying almost $60 in shipping is laughable. I’m done with HobbyKing as there are plenty of other sources that charge reasonable shipping.

    By the way the item was shipping from their Oregon warehouse down just one state, California and they wanted almost $60.00 in shipping. Bizarre. I predict they eventually go out of business......

    I just made my 70th order with HobbyKing. I got a nice $30 coupon and free shipping on the new Durafly Spitfire. Very happy with the new shipping rules as they apply to the USA. I'm sympathetic with the guys elsewhere that are trapped by the shippers to their country. I'm thinking it's not HKs fault. Over-size boxes cost a fortune to ship. Maybe your local hobby store can get the plane of your choice for you.

    So good to see a growing army of ripped off customers who are refusing to pay your extortionate shipping costs for poor quality goods!

    Shipping to Puerto Rico, USA is outrageously expensive. I recently tried to purchase a King Air Twin to take advantage of the sale price, and the cost of shipping was over US$650. Your US warehouse is a joke and will not ship to PR either, even to an USPS zip code. No thanks, I’ll spend my money elsewhere.

    Die Bestellsoftware ist immer noch chaotisch. Wenn ich z.B. auf Seite 7 ein Produkt aufrufe und es dann nicht verfügbar ist, gehe ich normal wieder einen Schritt zurück. Damit lande ich aber wieder auf Seite 1 und muss manuell wieder dort hingehen, wo ich gerade war. Das können andere Anbieter besser.
