Shipping Charges and Shipping Estimate Charges
Shipping charges are an estimate only during the checkout process. This is due to the extreme cost of shipping within Canada and the inability to accurately estimate on line every postal code, and every size of every item within Canada. Therefore we offer an estimate for shipping to most major cities within Canada (with the majority of postal code exceptions listed below). If the charges total more than the shipping estimate*, we will contact you to approve these additional shipping charges. The shipment of orders to certain remote locations, containing but not limited to postal codes starting with the following: (A0A-A9Z, B0A-B9Z, C0A-C9Z, E0A-E9Z, G0B-G0L, G0T-G0W, G3L-G4Z, J0M-J0M, J9E-J9E, J9K-J9Z, T0A-T0B, T0E-T1X, T6W-T7W, T8P-T8Z, T9G-T9Z, V0A-V0L, V0N-V1L, V1N-V2V, V3G-V3G, V8A-V8K, V9G-V9Z, X0A – X9Z, Y0A – Y9Z) may have additional costs associated with the shipments.
