How much is freight going to cost on my order?
Unfortunately we are unable to include shipping in the final cost on our website. We have worked with our web designers and freight companies for several years to try to find a model that could work for us, but thus far have been unsuccessful. The problem we have is that so many of our products are either very large and very light (a box of plastic hangers for instance) or very small, yet very heavy. Given that and the way freight companies charge in Canada, they have been unwilling to give us fixed pricing based on the size of the package. When you complicate that with the fact that most customers order a number of products online in a single order, which we may or may not be able to be consolidated into a smaller number of boxes, it makes it virtually impossible to create a workable automatic freight model. The only solutions presented to us thus far would result in many customers being overcharged for freight and we don't feel that that is a fair route to take.
As a result, our staff calculate the freight manually on every order to ensure that the customers are charged based on the actual cost. On the website, during the checkout process, there is an option to be notified in advance if freight will exceed a certain cost. Many people have taken advantage of that feature. We are happy to calculate and confirm the freight cost before shipping any order to ensure that the customer is satisfied with the total cost before we send out the order.
I'm not a retailer. Can I still buy from Eddie's?
Yes. You don't have to own a store to buy from us. Although the vast majority of our customer are North American retailers, we also have many customers who operate home-based businesses or simply buy for their personal use.
How long will it take to get my order?
Most orders leave our warehouse within one or two business days of being placed. We normally ship via Canada Post, Canpar or local courier and always with a trackable method. For orders with larger items we will use a freight company.
Approximate* transit times once an order leaves our warehouse:
- British Columbia and Alberta- one to two business days in most cases
- Saskatchewan - one to two business days in most cases
- Manitoba - three business days
- Ontario and Quebec - one to two business days in most cases
- The Maritimes (Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick & Nova Scotia) - two business days in most cases
- Newfoundland and Labrador - four to five business days
- US Destinations: varies depending upon method used.
