Priority Mail International

This is our least expensive option, but not always recommended.  It leaves our facility and gets tracked as proof of shipment and it has left the US.  But beyond that, it's really in the hands of your own country, customs, and your local mail service.  Once we show it shipped, the responsibility of the shipment is in your hands.  The US Post says 6 weeks, but that's not guaranteed by them or by   We can't even guarantee it will get there!  So, while we have not lost a package, we've had quite a few upset customers on the time it takes to get there.  If you really want to know you'll get it and track it... Choose UPS at checkout. 


USPS Express Mail

USPS Express Mail is our recommended international shipping service. It features date-certain delivery in 1-3 business days* to more than 190 countries.  It also features Global Tracking to your door.  The Priority Mail option can be very slow, up to 6 weeks delivery and while we've never lost one, it can take a long time.

**Orders $1500 and over must choose USPS Express Mail or UPS, to minimize the risk of losing the package.

Other Shipping Exceptions: Flat rate shipping methods do not always apply.  A few countries are on our exception list where flat rate USPS does NOT apply.  These countries will only see the UPS option.

Australia:  To find a dealer, please visit  Kestrel meters from the USA do NOT come with a C-Tick, which is required to be imported to AU.... Warranty without a C-Tick will not be covered through the  AU distributor and will not be their responsibility. 

We hear from those who bought Kestrel meters on eBay to send to AU and they get lost at customs.  We cannot help with this.  

In order to receive a unit with the required C-Tick, you must purchase it from an authorized Australian retailer/distributor. You cannot purchase these meters in the USA or anywhere else.  If a meter is shipped to you from the USA, you risk the meter being destroyed at customs.  

If you are in Australia and have a warranty issue on a meter without a C-tick, you will need to go though the manufacturer, here in the USA, visit
