Service impact related to COVID-19 Coronavirus, & Holiday season
Last update: January 18, 2021
EXPECT DELAYS. Our policies around timely order release remains the same. HOWEVER, given the current global situation, as well as continued high shipping volumes during and following the holiday season, SHIPPING DELAYS ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE as our carriers work hard to accommodate the increased service demands with mail and parcel delivery.
NOTE: We have no control over courier times once orders are released into their hands. Due to the limited transportation availability and increased safety measures noted by couriers, most carriers have removed any service guarantees. Delivery times are always estimated and never guaranteed.
CANADA POST NEWS - here: "Parcel delays to continue as Canada Post delivers at record levels"
At this time, Canada Post has issued a Yellow alert for mail delivery in Canada, indicating that delays are to be anticipated as parcel volumes continue to increase. Please continue to monitor the tracking with Canada Post for the latest. At this time, Canada Post has not advised us of any other issues for this shipment outside of what is indicated on the tracking page which will be updated if there are any further changes to the delivery of this shipment.
USPS SERVICE ALERTS - here: "The Postal Service has so far experienced only minor operational impacts"
INTERNATIONAL - Message from international carrier below...
You have likely seen shipments taking longer to be delivered. Due to the pandemic, carriers are experiencing severe delays, particularly with Canadian and international shipments.
This is an unprecedented time and the impact on shipping has caused a significant backlog with shipments. This is due to the volume of packages, increased safety measures that vary by country, limited staff, and a reduction in transportation available.
Our client support team is unable to provide updated delivery times or tracking information. That's why it is best to continue to monitor your tracking. These delays are beyond our control. All delivery times are estimated and not guaranteed."
In an effort to reduce environmental impact we do not include paper invoices with online orders. Order confirmations and shipping confirmations received by email will effectively act as your purchase receipt.
It is the responsibility of the buyer to ensure all information provided is accurate. Chelsea King Inc. is not responsible for miss-shipments due to inaccurate shipping information provided by the buyer.
Where Do We Ship?
Currently, we ship from Canada to the following countries:
- United States
- New Zealand
- South Korea
Estimated Delivery Times
Delivery times provided are estimations only and are not guaranteed. They will always be estimated in business days, unless explicitly stated otherwise. Once in the hands of the shipping service selected, arrival times are out of our control and effectively in the hands of the courier service selected at checkout.
We commit to doing everything we can to process and release orders in a timely manor but cannot be held responsible for circumstances that remain out of our control. Such circumstances include, but are not limited to, Courier / Postal delays, Border delays, incorrect shipping information provided by the buyer, Holidays, Acts of God, and Customs.
Following order placement, you will receive an 'Order Confirmation' email. Order processing times are generally within three to five (3 - 5) business days of order placement. PLEASE NOTE that "shipping times" are estimates only and are calculated from the date your order has been processed and released by our fulfillment center. In the event of a processing delay caused by unexpected circumstances beyond our control, notification may not be provided as shipments will be processed as quickly as possible. Once your order has been processed you will receive an email letting you know its on its way.
SHIPPING within CANADA
Orders shipping within Canada are handle by Canada Post. Following the receipt of your order fulfillment email, arrival times typically range between:
- 'Tracked Parcel' shipping options: While tracked shipments do arrive much quicker than 'Standard' shipping options, carriers are no longer guaranteeing arrival times due to volume increases causing occasional delays.
- 'Standard' non-tracked shipping within Canada: Due to the current global situation and its impact on shipping, transit times can vary. Expect delays.
NOTE: 'Standard' shipping options selected within Canada do not come with tracking in order to provide our Canadian customers a less expensive shipping option.
SHIPPING to the UNITED STATES
For orders shipping to the United States, we ship via USPS First Class Mail. Following the receipt of your order fulfillment email, arrival times typically range between four to eight (4-8) business days. Tracking information will be updated to your order following its release to USPS.
For International orders travelling to countries outside Canada and the United States, transit times can range between ten to seventy (10-70) business days.
Customs, Duties and Taxes
International packages shipping to locations outside of Canada and the U.S. may be subject to customs, duties and taxes which are determined by the destination country, the shipment value and the contents of the shipment.
Customs, import duties, and taxes are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to purchases. Please be aware that you may be required to pay applicable customs, duties and taxes before or upon delivery of your shipment.
Shipping charges consist of the total amount of shipping as well as fees related to warehousing and fulfillment. Collectively 'Shipping and Handling'.
Once your order has been fulfilled you will receive an email confirming it has shipped. Please note, tracking is only provided on orders shipped to the U.S. as well as orders within Canada where the 'Tracked Parcel' shipping option was selected. Tracking is not provided on 'Standard' shipping options within Canada. If your order includes tracking a tracking number will be added to your order profile once it has shipped.
