Shipping to Canada
Shipments to Canada can either go by truck or FedEx Ground
Truck Shipments to Canada:
Heavy and or bulky items are shipped to Canada on wood pallets by the LTL services of FedEx Freight or R+L Carriers. When a Canadian customer places their order, unless they have their own customs broker, we put them in touch with the local office of Livingston International Customs Brokers. This office will take their name, address and credit card info and open a "one time clearance" account.
The broker will process the customs papers and clear the shipment at the US/Canada border. They will then call the Canadian customer to inform them of the amount of Canadian taxes and brokerage charges to be paid before the entire shipment is delivered to the customer's location.
FedEx or UPS Ground Shipments to Canada:
Payment of Canadian taxes and brokerage charges for border clearance are the responsibility of the Canadian customer. The tax payable is the provincial sales tax or the federal GST or a combination of both. This is charged on the value of the goods and shipping charges in $CAN. Brokerage will vary, depending upon the value of the shipment and can vary from a minimum of $C15.00 up to $C60.00 or more, depending upon the value of the shipment. Before processing your order, we will call you with the additional costs for tax and brokerage and, with your approval, we will add this amount to your credit card or check charge. We will not ship your order without this approval from you.
Christmas Night Inc. reserves the right to make product color changes or small design modifications, at any time, without notice.
Billing for shipping by truck may include charges for the following special carrier services(called accessorials) :1) delivery to a residence, congested area, church or any institution or business without a loading dock or lift truck service 2)for loads over 100 pounds, use of the lift gate service on the back of the truck 3) Assistance by the driver in physically bringing the cartons into the house or storage area. All of these special services attract a fee of $37.00 to $112.00 from the trucking company and must be agreed to and paid in advance by the customer. When we quote you truck shipping charges we will describe and itemize these accessorials. We will also print the items not agreed to on the bill of lading, which the customer must sign when receiving the order. If the customer has used any of these services in the delivery, they will be billed for them by the trucking company. Truckers do not set up or install your product.
