Please be aware that your international shipment may be subject to additional customs brokerage fees, duties, and taxes which will be separately charged by the carrier or their customs broker. To learn more, visit: Determining Duties and Taxes.
Definitely! Just like if you have your own account with the major carriers, you can also arrange your own pickup and shipment to your destination country. Choose "Own Carrier/Freight Forwarder" at checkout and add the Name and Contact Info of the freight forwarding company you are using, if already available.
If items are in stock, packages are generally dispatched from our warehouse to the shipper within 1-3 business days after receipt of full payment.
It depends on where you are located and what the shipping service type is.
Our warehouse is located in Delta, BC, Canada and your packages will originate from here.
To have a rough estimate of delivery time, you can use the FedEx Calculator:
Our location is #16 - 7355 72 St., Delta, BC, Canada V4G 1L5.
Please note that transit periods are estimates only and delays could be experienced under various circumstances. Allow enough time from order date to time of use especially if you are outside North America. We will do our best to get the product to you as quickly as possible, but we cannot be held responsible for delays.
If it is available for the method of delivery selected, we will provide you with a tracking number which you can use online or a reference number to use when inquiring over the phone.
Duty, import, or other related cross-country taxes are to be paid by the customer. These fees are generally paid to your carrier or customs broker at time of delivery (COD) or charged to your account through a separate invoice. We do not include them in the total prices or shipping rates.
Since shipments would be originating from our warehouse in Canada, depending on the country it will be imported into, there may be additional port of entry charges ie: customs & brokerage fees, duties, taxes & fuel surcharges etc., which all fall outside of the scope & control of the supplier. Since a supplier is not the courier nor a broker, regrettably those charges are the responsibility of the consignee.
We encourage all customers to use their own carrier account, additional charges are typically mitigated or reduced by that procedure. Visit this link for more information on paying duties and import taxes: Determining Duties and Taxes
For orders that are more than $100 USD, we recommend that you purchase additional insurance for protection. Orders that are below $100 USD are generally insured by the carrier. Check with your preferred carrier if you have questions about insuring your shipment.
If your order has not yet arrived after a week from estimated time of delivery, contact your designated carrier to check transit status. If you have lost your tracking/reference information, contact our Head Office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide it to you.
Your items are dispatched at your own risk upon delivery to the carrier; however, we take special care in ensuring that packages are well-suited for long distances. If your item has incurred damage or breakage during transit (i.e. completely unusable), inform us within 48 hours of receiving your package. We require that you submit photos of the product as well as condition details upon receipt for further investigation. Failure to comply could result in refund/exchange delays or refusal.
