Shipping & Handling Policy
- Ship your equipment using your account with a shipping company if you have one.
- If you do not have an account with a courier, you can request a specific company, and we will bill you the shipping costs.
- Ship through our courier. We generally work with Canpar/DHL, but occasionally use FedEx. If provided, we will give you the tracking number once your equipment/order has been shipped.
All shipments leaving our facilities are subject to a handling fee associated with the product. This fee covers shipping materials and the time required to fill out shipping forms.
Insurance can be purchased should you want your package to be fully covered during shipping. Shipping insurance ranges in price depending on the value of your equipment.
