Stock for fulfillment for Canada can be shipped directly to our warehouse in Vancouver, British Columbia, or sent to a 3rd-party warehouse facility we use in Blaine, Washington where we conduct a weekly importation of stock. We will pack and ship orders out to all Canadian backers, and can also provide storage and customer care services (e.g. handling part replacements/defective products) upon request.
All service fees listed below exclude tax. Canadian Sales tax (5.0%) will be charged on your service total if you company is based in Canada.
