Are you a business owner maybe a retailer or importer looking for a reliable source of high quality merchandise? If so, you have come to the right place, at FoxLiquidation we specialize in servicing global markets. We know you have many questions: Are we servicing your country? How are the goods shipped? How long does it take and how do I start? Are there any restrictions? Well let’s dive in and answer these questions!

Why FoxLiquidation?- Let’s say you are currently buying direct from a manufacturer at wholesale pricing. The product may be good but the margins are thin. With the strong Dollar your margins keep shrinking. At Foxliquidation, we sell liquidation merchandise. In most cases, this merchandise must be liquidated by stores, warehouses or fulfillment centers to make room for next season’s merchandise. As a result, these companies liquidate left over merchandise at a loss, which is a fraction of a wholesale cost. Their loss is your gain! Why pay wholesale prices when you can get the same quality goods at a fraction of the cost from Foxliquidation? Supplement your offerings with FoxLiquidation, your first and last stop for great liquidation merchandise.

Do you ship to my country?- Yes, we ship globally with some exceptions. What we typically recommend is to contact us via email at support@foxliquidation.com to determine if we ship to your country. Please provide specifics, such as the lots you are interested in purchasing, destination country, closest port or airport and desired method of transit. We will then provide all available methods of transit as well as cost and estimated transit time.

What are my shipping options?- Smaller lots typically under 100 pounds can be shipped via the united states postal service, it’s a fast and a reliable option for smaller lots. Lots over 100 pounds are normally shipped either sea or air cargo. The big difference between sea and air is cost and speed. Generally, we recommend sea cargo, its slower but far more economical than air freight. In general, expect to pay roughly double the sea freight cost for air service but it does depend on the lots selected. The bulk of our international shipments are sent port to port, meaning that the order would be delivered to your closest port. You would then be responsible for clearing customs and arranging transportation from the port to your destination.

Are there Taxes and Tariffs due at delivery?- This depends entirely on the destination country. We strongly encourage all overseas clients to secure their own customs broker to assist with the pertinent paperwork associated with importation. A customs broker will also be able to give you a clearer idea of the various taxes and tariffs due for these imported goods. Government regulations prohibit us from marking merchandise below value or marking items as "gifts".

Many overseas customers use their own international freight forwarder who is familiar with specifics of importing good in their country. Their shipping rates are cheaper than traditional shipping companies such as UPS.

Are there any restrictions? – Yes, for example,two important brand restrictions you need to be aware of are Coach handbag and Ralph Lauren customer returns. We are unable to export any lots containing any Coach handbags. This restriction applies only to handbags and does not apply to other Coach products. Lots with Ralph Lauren clothing, kids and other categories and customer return condition cannot be exported. This restriction does not apply to any self pull condition Ralph Lauren merchandise.

How can I pay for my purchase? - International purchases must be paid by bank wire . Lots can be reserved with a 15% deposit via a PayPal verified account. Note, deposits are non-refundable.We do not accept any other forms of payment for international orders. International wires can take several days to process so it is strongly encouraged that you reserve your lots to avoid disappointment.

How long does it take to ship?- This varies greatly depending on the destination and the method of transit, but we are happy to provide a rough estimate of the transit time.

Do you offer container loads?- Yes we do. We can create a container load based on your needs or you can create a customized container based on lots that you select. Please make sure that all lots are from the same location! Please feel free to contact us at support@foxliquidation.com for more details on container load deals.

I have a carrier can I arrange my own transportation (freight forwarder)? – Yes, absolutely. We will ship to your carrier anywhere in the United States. Your carrier will than handle international shipping and customs. In most cases, freight forwarders are familiar with clearing customs and offer much cheaper shipping rates. Domestic pickup is allowed for container loads of merchandise only. Less than container loads would need to be shipped to your carrier and you would be responsible for the domestic shipping charges.
