Shipping

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 ship same or next day (depending on the time of day you place your order).

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 12-4:30pm, 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.  

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 customers, you are entitled to import up to $800 per order without incurring duties and import charges.

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 Canada:

UPS Standard

Within Alberta - 1 business day

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

1-2 business days

There’s a few locations where UPS isn’t able to deliver to (the Territories) 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.
