BDA Express Bermuda Worldwide Shipping

 

“BDA Express” is the easiest and fastest way to get your shipment from the U.S. to Bermuda. Whether purchasing items via catalog, Internet or shopping abroad, simply give your supplier your “BDA Express” ship to address and we will do all the rest.

 

The “BDA Express” U.S. shipping address is for Bermuda residents and businesses needing a reliable, fast way to import packages weighing up to 150 pounds.

“BDA Express” is for packages only. Mail, letters or magazines received through “BDA Express” will not be sent to Bermuda via this service.
Here is some helpful information to get you started. We know you will enjoy BDA Express services offered.

 

GET STARTED TODAY.
• Once you are signed up and assigned a BDA Express address, call your bank to have them add your “BDA Express” address to your credit card as one of your “Ship to” addresses. Many overseas companies will require this before processing your orders.

• All shipments will be received at our “BDA Express” facility in New Jersey for processing and forwarding to you in Bermuda.

• Providing we get your related invoices for goods ordered, expect 48 – 72 hours delivery time (3 business days) from the time we receive your package at our “BDA Express” facility in New Jersey.

• Upon arrival, any customers set up for prepayment of packages arriving will be able to collect their packages from either The Sound Stage in the Washington Mall or from our 4 Mill Reach Lane office which you will be able to confirm upon setting up your account.

• Customers that prefer to remain on a COD basis will be notified that your package has been received at our 4 Mill Reach Lane, Pembroke office for collection.

 

HELPFUL TIPS.
• An invoice MUST accompany your shipment or be forwarded to our office as this will delay the sending of your package until one can be provided. This is a requirement by Bermuda Customs for duty purposes. We suggest you have your supplier fax or email a copy of the invoice to you at the time of purchase as to avoid any delays. 
PLEASE FORWARD ALL INVOICES COPIES TO invoices@bdashipping.bm

• Your “BDA Express” address must be complete on all shipping labels and must include your name and “BDA Express”.

• Ask your supplier to have your packages shipped complete via express courier. Partial shipments are more expensive and may cause delays and increased customs charges, as it is difficult to calculate the correct duties on goods received as part shipments.

• Check the weight and size of your shipments before shipping so that you can accurately estimate your costs before they ship to Bermuda. You will also be able to calculate if “BDA Express” is the preferred method of shipping. With ocean and regular airfreight services offered, we will be able to recommend the most cost-effective means of shipping. If you are uncertain, please contact us and we will help you with the calculations.

• Large light items will be shipped by size and not weight and can be quite expensive.

 

DIMENSIONAL WEIGHING CALCULATIONS
All airlines and courier companies bill by actual weight or “Dimensional Weight” whichever is greater. Shipping larger items, such as comforters, do not weigh much but take up a lot of space on the aircraft and, therefore, is billed by size or “Dimensional Weight”.

Be sure to calculate your shipments when ordering to know how your goods will be billed.

Calculations in inches

Length x width x height divided by 139 = the number of pound of Dimensional weight.

• Carrier fuel surcharges are calculated and will be added to your freight / shipping cost and are accessed and adjusted by the carrier based on fluctuating energy costs.

 

PAYMENT & MEMBERSHIP FEES
Along with the regular method of payments by cash or check, we can accept credit / debit cards for the shipping, duty charges and the insurance upon receipt of goods.

Annual membership fees are just $10.00 per calendar year.

The membership is for one person only.
