A.L.I.C.E. BIKE FOR UK/EU CUSTOMERS

For UK/EU customers, we recommend you purchase A.L.I.C.E. as a frame and fork bundle. Please see below for further information

SHIPPING

All Pipedream frames are shipped from the UK.

Pipedream A.L.I.C.E. adventure bikes are assembled at our workshop in Taiwan and shipped direct from there to you using TNT express. This is to minimise handling and so we can offer fair and competitive international pricing.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS

You, the customer, are responsible for any duty and sales tax demanded by customs when the bike (or frame) is imported.

We’re currently able to send our A.L.I.C.E. adventure bike to: Australia, Canada, Guernsey, Hong Kong, Japan, Liechtenstein, Malaysia, Singapore, South Africa and USA as these countries all have relatively low duty and tax on bicycles. The total price should still be competitive after shipping, duty and sales tax are accounted for.

We are happy to send anywhere else in the world but advise you to check the duty and sales tax you’re likely to be charged.

UK/EU CUSTOMERS

All frames are shipped from the UK.

For UK/EU customers, we recommend you purchase A.L.I.C.E. as a frame and fork bundle

This is due to the 15% duty HMRC charges for complete bikes imported into the UK compared to the 4.6% it charges on frames and components. Additionally, HMRC charges 20% VAT on both the duty and the goods.

We’re happy to quote you for a complete bike (assembled in the UK) or we can assist you in sourcing components to build a bike yourself, if you prefer.

This tax calculator can give you an indication of the expected total price for UK imports of the A.L.I.C.E. adventure bicycle. However, we recommend you contact HMRC for more information.

DUTY & TAXES

UK customers are not charged VAT on orders shipped within the UK.

International customers (outside the EU) may incur duty and sales tax when the goods are imported so we advise you to contact your relevant authorities to check the charges. You can use the following link as a guide to check the duty and sales tax you’re likely to be charged.
