Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have a catalogue or list of items I can choose from?
Will I receive a quote before purchasing items?
Because item prices are subject to change, we generally don’t provide quotes in advance of purchases. The price you’ll pay will be: the price of the items (including any U.S. sales taxes) plus $1.00 per item, a $30.00 service fee, and a $25.00 shipping and handling fee to ship anywhere in Canada. Extra charges may apply for orders with heavyweight or oversized items.
If you would like to find out the price of the items you’re requesting, we recommend calling the store or visiting the store’s website. Please note that in order to proceed with a request, we require a $50.00 deposit.
What is the $30.00 service fee for?
The $30.00 service fee covers the cost of our shopper visiting the store and purchasing the items as well as our payment processing fees.
