Purchase Orders must include the following information:

A customer service representative will call only if there are necessary adjustments or corrections that need to be made

Your original shipping charges will be adjusted downward (based on weight and dimensions) to reflect the cost of only items sent.  The back order shipments will be shipped the same method unless you contact us at to specify another shipping method.

Domestic Order Shipping Options

All online orders are shipped via Canada Post unless other shipping arrangements are made.  Domestic orders may be shipped using Canada Post, FedEx, or UPS. U PS and FedEx rates are not shown on this web site.  Actual rates for on-line orders will vary depending on your location.
