Shipping and Delivery Delays during COVID-19

The majority of orders processed through WithAPast are shipped via Canada Post and the US Postal Service. International orders are most often shipped via Canada Post or DHL Express Courier.  

When orders are picked up, we're given an estimated delivery date.  At the moment, delays are being experienced with all shipping companies, due to necessary extra precautions being taken for the COVID-19 pandemic. We've experienced delays from one day to two weeks and don't honestly see that changing  anytime soon.

We will continue to ship orders out by the most efficient and affordable means possible and follow up with the shipping company when delays are encountered.

Free Shipping Tuesdays in October - From Canada Post

Canada Post is offering free shipping for parcels delivered to Canadian addresses, every Tuesday in October!  This option is available to all Small Business Solutions members so I'm able to pass it along to Canadian customers placing an order on WithAPast.

I'm thrilled with this initiative by Canada Post and, coming after the recent labour uncertainties, it's a great good will gesture.

So, if you're thinking of placing an order, and you don't mind waiting until the Tuesday after you place your order for it to be processed and shipped, you may want to take advantage of this offer. Simply type in 'Canada Post Free Shipping' in the Discount Code option during checkout, and shipping costs will be deducted from your order.

Potential Work Disruption at Canada Post

Please note that there is a good possibility of a labour disruption at Canada Post  by July 2nd, 2016.  As the majority of purchases on the WithAPast website are delivered via Canada Post Expedited Parcel Post service, any labour disruption will have a major impact on our operations.  

In the event of a strike or lockout at Canada Post, we will be shipping packages to their destination via UPS, DHL or Purolator Courier.  This is a more costly option than Canada Post however, so please e-mail us for an accurate quote on shipping before placing an order on our website.

We apologize for the inconvenience and remain hopeful that employees and management at Canada Post are able to come to an agreement before July 2nd.  If that's not the case, we're hopeful that the issues will be resolved as quickly as possible.
