Welcome to RC Light Systems
Welcome to the new web site for RC Light Systems. Over the last 8 years we have been creating advanced control systems for RC and full sized lighting as well as a number of other spin off applications as well.
Explorer further for details of the systems, examples of them in use, and a few of the special projects we have been involved with.
The order handling team (Tom and Charlie!) will be on holiday from 31st July to the 7th August. Any orders received after the 30th July will not be processed until the 8th August. We'll be on email and messenger for any questions or assistance required, so can still help out as needed.
European Customs Charges
As a result of the UK leaving the EU customs union all packages sent to an EU member state will be liable for import charges. This is sadly beyond our control. Typical rates in the vary from 16-24%, and this will be charged on the order value including shipping. We have seen the orders via DHL are also attracting sizeable handling fees as well (we would recommend using standard shipping at this time).
As RC Light Systems is NOT VAT registered we are unable to 'deduct' VAT for export orders. We are looking into this at the moment to see how we can best serve our customers.
The initial delays we saw from UK exiting the EU mostly seem resolved - HOWEVER we do see a significant issue for our US customers for any orders that arrive via USPS Chicago main depot. We see 2-3 week delays in them being accepted at Chicago and then 2-3 weeks in them being onwards shipped to the final destination. Any orders arriving via NY, LA, FL USPS import centres are processed in 1 or 2 days. Chicago is 4-6 weeks !!
