This is a topic that must be taken seriously. Unfortunately, most only retailers cheat the system and ship these items illegally in order to save on the cost of training and added shipping costs. If caught this can mean a whole lot of trouble and fines for both the retailer and the customer!
Lithium-Ion batteries are classified as dangerous goods in all countries worldwide! Since lithium batteries are designed to provide high levels of power, the electrical energy in these batteries is significant, meaning that such batteries can sometimes generate a great amount of heat if short-circuited. In addition, the chemical contents of these batteries may catch fire if damaged or if improperly designed or assembled. For these reasons, there are safety regulations controlling the shipment of these types of batteries. All lithium batteries manufactured by reputable companies like Bosch ensure that their batteries are not only tested & certified they are safe for consumer use.
It is a legal requirement that all shippers be trained and certified to the applicable regulations in order to ship these products.
At Scooteretti we are proud that each one of our shippers is trained and certified to ship Dangerous Goods by airfreight, sea freight, and ground worldwide. We are proud retailers to have received our onsite Transport Canada certificate of full compliance.
