We offer Canadian shipping to most areas for all our products for a 7% charge (minimum $25). Shipping to other countries is 20% (minimum $40).

This percentage calculation is based on the total sale price rounded up to the nearest $100 for sales up to $1000 or the nearest $500 for sales over $1000. 

If your order is in stock, we will ship within 3 business days. If the product is not in stock we will inform you of the expected lead time and our delivery plans. You will then have the choice to wait or cancel.

Our standard shipping covers delivery to the main urban areas within Canada and the USA. Delivery to other parts of Canada and the USA may be subject to additional charges.
