  • Within USA we ship orders via DHL Express or US Post. DHL is the default delivery service for contiguous states, while Alaska, Hawaii and rural addresses and PO boxes are shipped via US Post.
  • Note that Loomis Express and DHL Express require a buzzer number for delivery to any secured buildings (e.g., apartments, condos) as well as someone to sign for the package.
  • Shipments sent via Canada Post or US Post may be subject to transit delays, especially in rural or remote areas.

Shipping Requests:
If you would like to make a special shipping request, you may note this in the Shipping Address or Gift Message field when you place your order, for example:

  • Indicate (POST ONLY) at the end of your address if you would like to receive your order via Canada or US Post
  • Add NO SIG REQ at the end of your address if you wish the package to be delivered without signing for the shipment (NOTE: by stating “NO SIG REQ” you accept the risk and responsibility for the parcel once the courier reports the package as delivered).

Shipping rates outside of Canada / USA vary by address and the type/amount of products ordered. To obtain a quote, please email with your full name, mailing address, phone number, and a list and quantities of items that you wish to order.
