4) Shipping Times
SHIPPING TIMES ARE APPROXIMATE & NOT GUARANTEED
All orders are processed within 1 -3 business days (maximum) + shipping to the following destinations:
|Ontario - GTA||1-3 days|
|N.B, P.E.I., N.S.||3-5 days|
|Western Canada||5-11 days|
|United States||up to 2 weeks|
Orders are shipped out Monday thru Friday, except holidays. We ship UPS Standard OR Canada Post Expedited, both generally take the same amount of time. All shipping times are approximate. If you are in a remote area of Canada or the USA these shipping times will not apply. We will contact you with a tracking # once your order has been processed.
**Please make sure that you check your tracking # to get a better idea of the actual delivery time! We send you an email of your tracking # as well you will get an email(s) from Canada Post or UPS (when it ships out, exceptions & delivery). We are not responsible for shipping times once they have been received by the carrier.
PER CANADA POST & UPS: Both have followed the guidance of public health authorities and made the safety of employees and customers a top priority. These measures, combined with the heavy demand for parcels, means our ability to process has been slowed down. While parcel processing and delivery is expected to continue at a high pace, customers may experience some delays as important safety measures continue. Canada Post & UPS aim to do their best to deliver, but there may be delays in some regions, due to inclement weather, acts of nature, or some other unforeseen incident. Delivery standards have been adjusted to help manage delivery expectations.
If you have not received any emails from either us, Canada Post or UPS please check your email under your Junk &/or Trash folders as they may have ended up there.
5) Large & Oversized Products
Certain items available in our store that are unusually large, bulky or heavy will not qualify for the shipping rates listed in section #3. Due to their size &/or weight Canada Post & UPS charges extra to ship them. Should you wish to purchase one of these items please contact us in advance & we can quote you a shipping rate based on your delivery destination.
6) Shipping Method
All orders are shipped from our Georgetown, Ontario store. In Canada, we use Canada Post & UPS. In the United States we use UPS only.
Shipping costs are for ground transportation only for all shipping methods. For shipments outside of Ontario or to the USA any additional charges (taxes, duty, etc) are the responsibility of the end user. With ever order we will email you the tracking # so that you can go to UPS/Canada Post's sites to track the arrival date for your package.
**For Canada, if you want your order to be sent via Canada Post ONLY then please put a note in the comment section of the order at time of check out.
**In Canada, if you have a PO Box in the address we will always use Canada Post.
7) Undeliverable Packages
A carrier will attempt to deliver your product to your door. For Canada Post, many orders are delivered to your Community Mail Box. For Canada Post: if a signature is required, flagged as DO NOT SAFE DROP, or will not fit in your Community Mail Box and you are not available at time of delivery then a Pick Up Notice along with the address where your package will be available to pick up will be left. For UPS orders should be delivered & left at your door, unless a signature is required. For UPS: if a signature is required they will make 3 delivery attempts along with a notice left at your door.
A package will be deemed un-deliverable if:
- a) the package has not been picked up before the the last date available on the Pick Up Notice card
- b) the package address is deemed incomplete or not valid by Canada Post/UPS
- c) the package is refused at the end shipping address
Should this happen & we receive the product back we will issued a refund for the price of the product + applicable taxes less the return shipping charges we incur to the original credit card used. Initial shipping charges will not be refunded.
For products shipping to the USA no refund will be issued so please ensure all your shipping information is correct.
