SECTION 2: Termination of Use
Furthermore, as a component of our service, Kingz provides you with a shipping address linked to your account. This address is exclusively intended for use in accordance with the terms delineated herein. Any usage beyond the specified scope is in violation of our terms of service, and we retain the prerogative to terminate services accordingly. The shipping address should not be employed for personal matters unrelated to your orders and their procurement.
SECTION 3: Service Charges and Payment Structure
You shall bear primary responsibility for all expenses, encompassing transportation charges, potential surcharges, customs fees, duties, and any other government-imposed taxes, assessments, penalties, and fees. This includes legal costs, such as lawyers' fees and other legal expenses, incurred in connection with the shipment, storage, handling, re-consignment, return of freight to the shipper, disposition, or any other costs that may arise due to your breach of this agreement or any defaults on your part or on the part of the consignee or their representatives. You commit to fulfilling all such payments, even in situations where the consignee is obligated but refuses to make the payments. Furthermore, you acknowledge our right to possess a lien on any shipped goods in cases where charges under this agreement remain unpaid. Consequently, we may decline to release possession of the goods until such outstanding charges are settled.
While we provide initial cost quotations, we retain the prerogative to adjust or impose additional charges in the following circumstances:
- Unforeseen factors beyond our control result in an escalation of clearance costs, such as increased customs charges, trucking expenses, freight rates, local shipping fees, or terminal charges.
- Our costs rise due to delays outside our sphere of control, at which point we may levy an additional fee for waiting time.
In such instances, you are responsible for covering your proportionate share of all additional charges or fees incurred, in addition to the originally quoted price, prior to the release of your shipment. Until we receive payment for all outstanding charges owed by you to us, we retain the right to assert a lien over the shipment. Please note that we offer complimentary storage of your general goods for a duration of 14 days. Subsequently, if the requisite documentation is not presented, or you opt not to arrange shipment, a storage fee of $25 per day will be imposed until the items are shipped. For vehicles, storage fees exceeding 7 days will be $50 per day. Additionally, any shipment or package left unclaimed for a period of 3 days following delivery to any of our offices or partner locations worldwide may be subject to a warehousing fee of $25 per day (if we choose to warehouse it), in addition to any applicable late payment charges.
Only the payment methods listed on our official websites are recognized as valid forms of payment. Presently, we accept all major credit and debit cards denominated in local currency. We also provide the option for individuals to make payments through bank transfers and wallet deposits. No individual or entity beyond the designated account representatives and authorized banking institutions, as communicated by us, is permitted to accept payments on our behalf. We disclaim any responsibility for losses incurred in transactions with or payments to unauthorized parties. The act of making a payment for an order by the customer signifies the acceptance of this agreement and serves as authorization to proceed with the order.
When you furnish your payment details, you assert and guarantee that (1) the credit card information provided to us is accurate, complete, and truthful, (2) you possess the requisite authorization to utilize said credit card for the intended purchase, (3) your credit card company will honor the charges incurred by you, and (4) you will settle the charges accrued by you at the published prices, including any applicable taxes, if applicable. Failure to adhere to these payment terms, or any other stipulated terms, grants us the right to withhold the processing of order shipment.

2. When the Customer employs a Kingz Account to process shipments destined for locations outside the United States or the country of origin, the Customer shall, at their sole expense, ensure that the terms and conditions of international carriage provided by Kingz, as may be specified by Kingz from time to time (and subject to amendment or modification at the sole discretion of Kingz), are incorporated onto the Shipping Documentation as directed by Kingz for all such international shipments. The Customer undertakes to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Kingz, including its officers, directors, employees, and agents, from any and all losses, damages, claims, and associated expenses stemming from the Customer's failure to include the international carriage terms on the Shipping Documentation for such international shipments, including claims made by the recipients of said shipments, as well as any failure to comply with Kingz's instructions regarding the placement of these terms on the Shipping Documentation for international shipments.
3. Printed Signature: The Customer acknowledges that when using a Kingz Account to process shipments bound for locations outside the United States or the country of origin, they must input the name of the person responsible for completing the Shipping Documentation to be printed in lieu of a manual signature on the Shipping Documentation, as applicable, for all shipments tendered to Kingz via a Kingz Account. The Customer further recognizes that such a printed name shall be considered sufficient to constitute the Customer's signature, signifying their acceptance of Kingz's terms and conditions of carriage outlined in the pertinent transportation agreement, tariff, Service Guide, Standard Conditions, or Shipping Documentation under which the shipment is accepted by Kingz or its independent contractor.
4. Unless otherwise specified, the shipper's address listed on the front of any Shipping Documentation is considered the place of origin and execution, while the recipient's address indicated on the face of the Shipping Documentation is regarded as the destination. Unless expressly stated on the Shipping Documentation, Kingz International Logistics, located at 11969 Plano Rd Ste 150, Dallas, Texas 75243, is considered the initial carrier for all shipments.
SECTION 11: Quote Rates
The estimated rate displayed by the Shipping Calculator on kingzlogistics.com, if provided, may diverge from the actual charges applicable to your shipment. Discrepancies can arise due to factors such as the actual weight, dimensions, and various other considerations.

SECTION 12: Tracking Updates
SECTION 13: Right to Decline
Kingz retains the prerogative to refuse or revoke a Customer's request for any of our services if there is a suspicion of fraud, if the request is deemed objectionable, contradictory, illegal, or falls outside the scope of our company's objectives, core values, and service offerings. Additionally, a customer's request may be annulled under the following circumstances: submission of inaccurate customer, product, or pricing information, contravention of Nigerian customs shipping restrictions, or issues related to payment.
We also uphold the right to request that a Customer provides additional information, as deemed acceptable by us, to validate the authenticity of a transaction before fulfilling the Customer's request for any of our services. We may choose not to process or finalize any transaction and may cancel any transaction if we have a bona fide reason to question its legitimacy or doubt the accuracy of any information provided by the Customer. Moreover, for risk management purposes, we may, at our discretion, impose limitations on the amount and/or the quantity of orders we can dispatch for any Customer.
We firmly oppose fraudulent and criminal activities perpetrated through or in connection with our services. Consequently, in cases where fraud or criminal activity is suspected, we reserve the right to decline service, withhold products and payments, report such incidents to relevant law enforcement authorities, and furnish pertinent information to meet all legal obligations and facilitate prosecutions. Furthermore, we possess the authority to liquidate all items that have remained unclaimed or unpaid for by their owners in our warehouses (located in the USA and Nigeria) for a duration of up to 90 days.
SECTION 14: Processing Parcels
Goods can be shipped as they arrive on a weekly basis. All goods are consolidated unless otherwise stated by the customer. When consolidating the original packaging will be kept with the exception of the outer box used in mailing. Items that are considered fragile or susceptible to damage will be shipped in their original packaging. Loose items, may be placed in boxes for added protection. In cases where an item is extremely fragile, additional crating and packaging will be applied, and the associated cost will be borne by the customer. If such additional crating is deemed necessary, Kingz will notify you to make the required payment through your account.
Once items arrive at the Kingz warehouse for shipment, the final shipping weight will be determined by Kingz. This final weight determination takes precedence over any previous estimates or weight determinations provided by other shipping services or online stores. Customers are expected to settle payments for their shipments before the 21-day free storage period elapses. After this period, storage fees will commence, and customers will need to cover both the storage fees and the shipping fees when they are ready to ship their items. If no action is taken within 30 days of a package arriving to our warehouse we reserve the right to discard any packages regardless of it's content or value.

SECTION 18: Terms and Conditions for Ocean Freight
For shipments facilitated through our Ocean service, you are in agreement with the following terms:
- You will settle the entire shipping cost when dropping off your shipment.
- If the appropriate documents are not presented or if you choose not to initiate shipment within 14 days, we reserve the right to impose a storage fee of $25 per day for general goods, and for vehicles, a storage fee of $50 per day after 7 days.
- You are responsible for any demurrage charges or additional fees arising from delays in providing necessary documents, vehicle drop-offs, vehicle swaps during loading or post-loading, or any other extra services required to ensure the safe shipping of your goods/cargo.
- If you are notified of the arrival of your item and fail to pick-up within 3 days, you will incur storage charges at a rate of $10/N5000 per day, or $50/N10,000 per day for cars.
- For consolidated shipments, we will manage clearance services on your behalf. All clearance and incidental costs must be paid 15 days prior to the container's arrival at the destination port. Failure to make these payments within the specified timeframe will result in a late payment charge of 20% of the cost of clearing. Additionally, any demurrage charges incurred due to non-payment of these and other incidental fees will be your responsibility, and the container and your cargo will not be released until all accumulated demurrage charges are settled.
- You will cover any and all other fees imposed by regulatory or government agencies before the release of your items.
SECTION 19: Inspection of goods
Shipments may be subject to inspection by government authorities or by us, in accordance with established security controls and procedures as mandated by government authorities and/or carriers. However, it should be noted that we are not obligated to perform such inspections. You acknowledge that we bear no liability for not conducting any inspection on your shipment.
Copies of all pertinent shipping documents containing information such as the cargo's consignee, consignor, description, and other relevant data will be subjected to inspection and retained on file until the cargo completes its transportation. These documents will be held for record-keeping purposes for the duration mandated by government authorities. We assume no liability for retaining these documents for the aforementioned and similar reasons.
You also affirm that you possess all the necessary permits, clearances, certificates, or any other essential government clearance documents required for your goods to enter the destination country or any country through which the goods may transit enroute to the final destination. You agree to provide such documents within 24 hours upon our request. In instances where you do not possess the required clearance documents, any additional charges incurred to facilitate the release or delivery of your goods will be your responsibility. The goods will not be released to you until such additional payment is made in full.
We bear no liability to you or any other party for any losses or expenses resulting from non-compliance with customs or other government agency documentation requirements.
SECTION 20: Insurance
Insurance coverage is based on the stated value of item(s) in our warehouse. Items may have been delivered to our warehouse without accompanying invoices. In such cases, it is your responsibility to provide values on your account. You agree to verify and upload your invoice if any value is inaccurately stated, enabling us to update it accordingly. Failure to upload your invoice will result in the forfeiture of your right to claim the stated value, and you will only be compensated based on our declared value.
If you declare a higher value for carriage and pay the additional charge, our maximum liability will be the lesser of your declared value for carriage or the actual damage incurred. Please ensure that you carefully review the terms of the insurance policy, as we do not offer all-risk insurance.
For our letters, documents, packages, and envelopes, the highest declared value we allow is US$50 per shipment (or the equivalent in local currency), whichever is lower.
For other shipments, particularly those of high value, including, but not limited to, jewelry, artwork, antiques, precious metals, clocks, inherently fragile or unique items, the declared value for carriage is limited to US$50.
The maximum declared value for shipments containing glass is $50. Such shipments include, but are not limited to, windshields, plate glass, chinaware, light bulbs, televisions, monitors, and glassware. Our maximum liability for damage to shipments containing glass is $50. The maximum declared values may be increased if you opt to pay for special crating and packaging to ensure the safe transportation of the shipment, along with insurance coverage against damage during transit.
However, if we determine that crating is necessary for the safe shipment of your item due to its sensitive or fragile nature, you agree to cover the cost of such crating, which must be paid before the item is released.
In cases where you send more than one package in a shipment with a single declared value, the declared value for carriage of each package will be calculated by dividing the total declared value for carriage by the number of items in the shipment. In all instances, our liability will not exceed 50% of the combined cost of the goods and the amount paid for shipping.
Please refer to our insurance policy for detailed terms and coverage information.
SECTION 21: Disposal of Property
You, the consignee, and any authorized agent acknowledge that you have been duly notified of the arrival of your shipment when you have acknowledged or replied to any form of electronic communication, such as a text message or email, or when you have received proof of delivery from a courier company. If, after 14 days, the shipment remains unclaimed or delivery cannot be completed, we may take one of the following actions at the shipper's expense: return the shipment, or dispose of it without further notice to the shipper and consignee. In such cases, we shall not be liable for any consequences, and no such action shall release the shipper or consignee from any liability or lien.
Alternatively, if possible, we may keep the items in our warehouse for a reasonable period, subject to the payment of a warehousing fee of $50 per day. This fee must be paid by the shipper before the items are released. Any items not claimed after 14 days in our warehouse are at the customer's risk.
To enforce a claim, legal action must be initiated within 30 days of delivery, provided that a prior written claim has been submitted to us without receiving a response within 15 days thereafter. For the purposes of this section, items are considered delivered to the shipper once the shipper is notified of their arrival, regardless of whether the shipper takes actual physical possession of them. If the shipper is withholding any sum of money owed to us, the 30-day period does not begin until the full amount is paid to us.
If an account is shut down due to fraudulent activity, any and all parcels in transit or on hand, will be held for an announced period of time and forfeited. If after an account is shutdown the account holder continues to send packages, said parcels will be forfeited regardless of the content and value.
