Shipping and Taxes

Shipping

The Great Canadian Kite Company ships via Fedex and Canada Post Regular / Expedited.

Shipping Costs for kites have a lot more to do with volumetric weight than net weight.

Please note: Kites/packages over 100cm in shipping length are subject to an additional $18 over-sized fee. You will be notified if the over-sized fee is applicable.
(Over-size shipping surcharge increases to $25 for the month of December/January)

Remote Areas: Shipping rates in our store are calculated on a general province basis.  Remote or poorly serviced areas may be subject to an additional shipping fee and may not be serviced by all carriers.  You will be notified by email if extra shipping charges are required.

We offer shipping options depending upon the size of the product being shipped and the value of your order. Delivery/ shipping times are provided as indications of typical delivery times.  These are indications only and do not constitute a guarantee.

  • Envelope - Subject to $5 minimum with no tracking number.
  • Standard - You can expect 5-8 business days depending on your location.
  • Express - You can expect approximately 3 business day depending on location.
  • Fedex - Ground shipping - you can expect 4 days to most larger urban centres

_________________________

  • We typically ship from stock inventory. In stock items usually ship the next business day from our warehouse. 
  • On occasion, items may be back ordered (they are enroute to us), and we will ship items as soon as available. 

Shipping Specials - from time to time we will offer shipping incentives.  These may take the form of reduced or Free Shipping using Canada Post Expedited Shipping.  Over-sized shipping surcharge may be applicable to over-sized items.

Shipping Address:  Providing a complete, accurate shipping address is the buyer's responsibility.  Please note address cannot be changed after the item has shipped.  Any undeliverable items are generally returned to us.  We are happy to resend these items, but you will incur an additional cost for shipping.  If we misaddress your shipment - we will pay for return shipping.

Tracking your Kite:  You will be emailed a tracking number and link to track your packages delivery progress, if applicable.

Taxes
As we are based in Alberta, our store will automatically charge GST 5% for orders to be delivered to addresses within Canada.  For orders shipped to other provinces, you (the shopper) are solely responsible for any additional sales taxes and/or other taxes that may apply.
