Shipping Information

There is a minimum shipping charge 12.50 (Euros or USD) for orders outside of Canada. Within Canada the minimum is $10.00 CAD. My standard method of shipping tonewood is through the postal service. The only courier companies that service my local area are DHL and Purolator. Please do not ask for UPS or FedEx shipping. Customers are expected to handle any customs or duties on the receiving hand, although I will fill out any special customs forms if required. At present, there is no duties or tax for shipping tonewood into the USA.

Within Canada, regular surface parcel post is the most economical but does not provide for tracking packages. Express Post offers package tracking and speedier delivery (3 to 4 business days) for a substantially higher cost. DHL offers similar services at a slightly higher rate, although they do offer tracking on ground shipments.

For shipments to the USA, Canada Post Expedited Parcel service offers package tracking, delivery to PO Boxes, and 6 - 10 day delivery to anywhere in the U.S. This is the most economical shipping method. Options for speedier delivery are also available, either through the post or by courier, again at a substantially higher rate.

For overseas shipments, Canada Post surface parcel post is the most economical choice, with air parcel post a slightly speedier and more expensive option. Neither of these options offer package tracking. Courier service overseas is only available as an express option, at a hefty rate.
