How do I ship outside of Canada?
From your shopping cart, you can select your country to ship to, enter your postal code and then you will see shipping options for the items you have added to your cart.
What do the shipping options mean?
1) We ship Monday through Friday and endeavor to ship most items before end of next business day. We ship Express orders same day when received before noon Pacific Time. (But you can always call us and we'll do our best to help).
2) Products ship from our warehouse in BC near Vancouver, or from one of our production facilities that are spread throughout the US.
3) In Canada, Bear Woods ships with Canada Post parcel service, or UPS. Shipments to the USA or abroad use the services of UPS or a Postal Service.
4) From the Shopping Cart (link is at the top left of every page) when you enter your Postal Code, and select the country you are shipping to, the page will generate shipping options. UPS services are denoted with available options.
5) Shipping is by weight and provided at or BELOW our cost. We believe it is most fair to provide fair prices, rather than absorbing the cost of all shipping. (Occasionally we offer free shipping promotions - watch our newsletter and Facebook for updates.)
