We can ship to virtually any address in the world, but we only have shipping to the United States and Canada enabled in our store.  If you live outside the US and Canada, please e-mail us at service@hottom.com to inquire about shipping.

Please also note that the shipping rates for many items we sell are weight-based. The weight of any such item can be found on its detail page. To reflect the policies of the shipping companies we use, all weights will be rounded up to the next full pound.
