International Orders

We are currently offering international shipping to Canada only via Fedex Ground for $35, regardless of order size. Delivery typically takes 3-10 days to arrive once the order is shipped from our warehouse. Delays in customs can increase delivery times. Shipping includes tracking information. We are not able to offer expedited shipping options at this time.

When a package is shipped internationally, it may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed by the destination country. These charges will typically be due once the shipped goods arrive at the country of destination. We are not responsible for any of these charges since they occur after the items are shipped from our warehouse as we are unable to predict which of these fees, if any, will be applied.
