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.
International Orders Temporarily stopped
Sadly we have just paused our international order capability. RoyalMail (the national carrier in the UK) was hit by a ransomware attack last week and this has stopped the UK being able to export any good via the national carrier. We had hoped for a fast resolution to this issue, however as of the 17th January the UK is still unable to accept post for export. We have turned off shipping options for locations outside of the UK. We apologise for the inconvenience this is causing and will let you know as soon as we are allowed to ship internationally again.
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 are approaching Christmas and this normally slows delivery. Please allow a few extra days. We ship everything tracked so you should be able to see where it is (once it has cleared customs).
