In an attempt to lessen shipping sticker shock a bit, we've decided to be a bit creative with shipping charges. You know that feeling that comes with thinking you've just found a great deal on something you'd love to own, right up until you get to the checkout and realize shipping and taxes are almost as much or even more than your purchase? So, there are a number of shipping options.  

1) For purchases going local within Hamilton, you have the option of selecting delivery for any purchase, at a cost of $10.00.  Every attempt will be made to deliver your purchase within 3 business days. For large or heavy items, this is the only option as shipping costs just don't make any sense. 

2) For purchases going to locations within a 30 mile radius of Hamilton, you have the option of selecting Canada Post Parcel or XPress Post, or a delivery charge of $20.00 will apply. For large or heavy items, this is the only option as shipping costs just don't make any sense. 

3) For purchases other than those listed as Large/Heavy and being delivered within Canada, a shipping charge of $10.00 will be applied. Items will be shipped within Canada Via CanadaPost Parcel or Xpresspost.  Parcel will be insured and delivery should be within 4 -6 Business Days of shipment date.

4) For larger, heavier or very fragile items being delivered within Canada, a shipping charge of $15.00 will be applied. Items will be shipped within Canada Via CanadaPost Parcel or Xpresspost.  Parcel will be insured and delivery should be within 4-6 Business Days of shipment date.

5) If you're a friend or family, e-mail us for the discount code that will allow you to check out without paying either taxes or shipping.  We'll deliver!

International Orders
A placeholder shipping rate of $25.00 (US) has been included as a shipping option for international orders outside of Canada and the US.  This will allow international orders to be processed.  This rate will be adjusted upwards or downwards based on the actual cost of shipping once an order has been placed. You will be refunded for shipping that is lower or charged for shipping that is higher than this $25.00 placeholder.  Parcels will not be shipped without your prior agreement to the final shipping rate. 

Feel free to contact us via e-mail at withapast@gmail.com before making your purchase so that we can provide you with an accurate quote for shipping.  As rates vary greatly with International Orders, an accurate shipping quote will be important to determine your final payment due, before placing your order.  Any Duties/Taxes payable on the shipment will be solely the responsibility of the purchaser.

Returns/Refunds
The cost paid for your item will be refunded in full, in the event of loss or damage caused by shipping.  The item must first be returned to With A Past, in its original packaging so that a claim may be made.  Please examine the photos and description of each item very carefully before making any purchase.  If you have any questions, or would like more detailed information about an item, you may e-mail us at withapast@gmail.com and we will respond as soon as possible.  

While we'd like to avoid the return/refund process as much as possible, we are happy to refund your purchase if you find the item doesn't quite meet your expectations.  Please send us an e-mail advising what your issue is and return the item, in the original packaging, to the address listed on your invoice, within 14 days.  Your payment will be refunded in full, minus any shipping charges.
