Although we can ship to
Canada, we can only do so by FedEx service.
The shipping rates alone
are slightly higher than shipping the same distance within the USA,
however, FedEx has a brokerage service department
that must be used for clearing shipments if you do not clear the shipment
yourself or with a brokerage agent registered with Canadian Customs
The fees for brokerage
can be quite high and are often more than the shipping charge, especially
in the case of a small shipment. In addition, there are often other
fees collected by FedEx brokerage based on the value of the entire shipment.
predict what your costs for FedEx brokerage service fees will be for
any shipment and we recommend that you contact your local FedEx office
to learn more about these charges before placing your order with us
in order to avoid any unpleasant surprise costs in shipping your order.
Unfortunately, we can not
ship displays to Canada by Postal Service.
POSTAL SERVICE / FedEx:
Most Postcard and Greeting
card displays can be shipped by Priority Mail to areas served by the
US Postal Service including, Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, Puerto Rico, US
Virgin Islands and Palau only. Not all products we offer can be sent
using the postal service so please inquire with the product number
/ description first along with your postal code.
In short, we cannot otherwise
ship small orders overseas. Unfortunately, due to the bulk of display
racks and the dimensional-weight classifications given to cartons
of high size to weight ratios, there is no reasonable cost method
to ship by FedEx or International MAIL.
For instance, a small
rack that weighs 5 Lb in actual weight gets assigned a dimensional-weight
of 28 Lbs. to compensate for the amount of space the carton uses.
Air service to Europe
for a 5 Lb. rack, shipped in a carton which is mostly filled with
air, typically costs about $130.00+. And that's for just one rack.
FedEx offers only Air express services and does not have "ground
service" for overseas deliveries. Postal Union air services are
about the same cost as FedEx.
Postal Union Sea Mail shipping
amounts to a huge waste of our time in the long run, filing paper
work, corresponding with anxious customers, tracing lost shipments
(tracking service is not available for sea-mail) and managing everybody's
disappointments and we decline to use that service any further.

FREIGHT FORWARDERS: If you deal with a freight forwarder
in the USA we can ship to their USA facility by FedEx and we
will be happy to quote those charges to you.
In this case, please advise
us of your freight forwarder's address in order to quote domestic shipping
charges for delivery to their facility.

Freight forwarders are
almost never cost effective for small orders unless you are sourcing
goods from various suppliers and shipping a significant overall volume
in one shipment.
