SHIPPING

Thank you for shopping with us!

a) Shipping Rates: $10.00 flat rate within BC; $15.00 flat rate for rest of Canada. Take advantage of this flat rate and stock up on your favourite things! We also offer an in store pickup option at checkout.

b) Your order will be carefully packaged and shipped within 3 days of receiving it. We’ll ship your tracked package via Canada Post, and depending on your location, your order should be delivered within 3-10 business days.

c) To facilitate prompt fulfillment of your order, please make sure you have specified the date you would like the order delivered, the phone number and address of the recipient (or other contact in case of delivery difficulty), and any other special instructions. We can include a card or any special messages!

d) We attempt to have your order delivered on the date you specify, but we have no control over delays experienced with Canada Post and couriers. We reserve the right to adjust the delivery date or time due to variable circumstances such as holidays, logistics, routes and carbon footprint.

e) When delivery cannot be made, for example, due to an incorrect address or no one being at the delivery location to accept the order (either at the arranged place and time, or due to insufficient contact information to arrange a place and time), the delivery will be considered refused and a partial refund will be provided once we receive the item back (purchase amount less 50% for handling, disassembly, restocking, delivery and return charges).

f) Currently our website is only set up to ship within Canada, but we are happy to ship internationally too! Just email us at neckofthewoodsgs@gmail.com and we can get back to you with a shipping quote for your area.
