A/R Credit Account Holders:

All credit account holders are charged actual shipping rates. For more information or to request a quote please contact our National Mail Order service.

Extra Shipping Fees:

Some northern areas of ON* and QC*, and any other areas deemed remote by Canada Post will be charged actual shipping rates. Once your order is processed we will contact you with a shipping quote for authorization. Shipping charges and delivery times may vary depending on your location.

Remote areas can typically be identified by postal codes containing more than one “0”, but this is not always the case. Freight carriers often add extra surcharges for service to certain areas outside of major centers.

**Oversized or overweight items will have additional charges applied. You will be contacted within 2 business days with a shipping quote for authorization.

Oversized = Items 30″x36″ or larger

Overweight = 66 lbs or more.

Unless a “Signature Required” is requested upon ordering, it is up to the driver’s discretion whether it is deemed safe to leave the parcel(s) at your address. If the driver is not comfortable leaving the parcel(s) a notice of delivery tag will be left near your mailbox to notify you of where you can pick up your parcel.

Backordered / Out of Stock Items

Should there be anything out of stock company wide at the time of placing your order we will be sure to notify you via phone or email within 1–2 business days.

All in stock items will be delivered within our average processing and shipping times. Backordered items will be shipped as they arrive from our distributors at no additional cost.
