Shipping

 Holiday Shipping

As shipping carriers are not providing guarantees at this time, it is important to get your order in early to ensure it arrives in time for the holidays.

  • Standard Shipping: Place your order prior to December 15 for delivery by December 25
  • Express Shipping: Place your order prior to December 20 for delivery by December 25

Due to the influx of orders during this busy time of year and the extra measures we are taking amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, it may take us a little longer to get your order out the door. Please be patient as we work as quickly as possible while still keeping our team members safe.

As soon as your order has shipped, you will receive tracking information via email from us (unless an untracked shipping method was selected at checkout). Once your order has been shipped, please feel free to contact the shipping carrier directly for any delivery related updates.

 

 

Important COVID-19 Shipping Update

Please be advised that due to COVID-19 and the increase in online ordering experienced all across North America, some delivery services and areas have been experiencing delays. During this time, any Service Guarantees have been suspended by all shipping carriers.

For further information regarding shipping timelines and delays that may affect your area, please review statements and FAQ for UPS and Canada Post.

Postage Costs

We want to keep postage costs to a minimum, so we only charge a flat rate ($10) anywhere in Canada on retail orders - therefore it often makes sense to add more items to your cart to get the most out of your postage charge. 

Any retail orders shipped within Canada over $75 (before taxes) qualify for free shipping. 

We mostly use UPS, and Canada Post when needed. We aim to ship same or next business day, depending on the time of day you place your order, but may have a delay of up to 4 business days depending on current order volumes, or during peak holiday seasons.

Express Shipping

Whenever possible, we prioritize orders with express shipping. That being said, we print our last batch of orders at 12pm MST, so if you're placing an order with express shipping between 12-3:30pm, please give us a call at 403-457-9844, and we'll do our best to make sure it ships out the same day.

Packaging

We could buy a new box for every order and pass the cost on to you... but we prefer to reuse packaging that has been sent to us - not only to keep your price down, but because it's just better for the environment. If your package comes with bubble-wrap, it's second hand. If we ever do need to use brand new packaging, we try to find the most eco-friendly products available.  

Pre-Orders

We don't want you to have to wait for all the fun gear that you've ordered just because one of the items is a pre-order, so please purchase pre-orders separately or your entire order will be held for shipping until the pre-order product arrives at our warehouse.

Why buy from within Canada?

If, like us, you've ever ordered online from a US company, you'll know that it's a gamble whether or not you'll be charged at the border with duties, taxes, and high brokerage fees (sometimes more than the value of the item!). Shipping costs are often higher, and sometimes your warranties aren't even valid in Canada. And that's all if you've managed to get to the final checkout page without finding a "State" field that only lists 50 options.

We've taken care of all the Canadian duties and taxes for you - and no nasty "extra charges" surprise when your package is delivered.

For our US and international customers, you will be billed for import fees based on your countries import guidelines.

Don't see shipping to your area, need a different shipping method, or want to use your own shipping account?

We don't mean to sound like a broken record here but... send us an email! We'll help you work out the best possible shipping option for what you need.

 

Shipping Methods

Within Calgary:

Showroom Pick-up

While our showroom is now open (with capacity restrictions), we understand that everyone has their own comfort levels, and want to ensure the safety of our staff and their families, customers and community.

If you feel more comfortable, we are still offering contact-free pickup as a shipping method for orders placed online.

Please review our No-Contact Pick-Up Procedure for full details.

 

Within Canada:

UPS Standard

Within Alberta - 1-2 business days

BC/Saskatchewan - 1-3 business days

Manitoba - 2-4 business days

Ontario + Eastern Canada - 5 business days

This is our most affordable option within Canada, and is usually the method we’ll use when you select “Standard Shipping (Order less than $75)” or “Free Shipping Orders Over $75”. You will receive tracking with your guaranteed delivery date included with your shipping confirmation.

 

UPS Next Day Air Saver

1 business day

If you need to guarantee that your package will be delivered in less time than the standard option allows, this method will likely be your best friend! It has a guaranteed delivery time of one business day, and is usually the most affordable express shipping option (with a couple of exceptions, see Canada Post XpressPost).

 

Canada Post Xpresspost

1-4 business days

There’s a few locations where UPS isn’t able to deliver to (the Territories or P.O. Boxes) or where it becomes very expensive (rural Quebec). If you are in one of these locations and you need an express option, this is the one you’ll want to select.
