FAQs – Shipping and Distribution

3. Where do you service/ship from?

4. Can I ship internationally?

Philburn currently only ships within Ontario and Atlantic Canada, making shipping from Ontario to the East Coast easier than ever. When shipping from Ontario to Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick or Nova Scotia you’ll never have to wonder about the status of your freight.

5. How quickly are my orders shipped?

We’re dedicated to getting your freight delivered on time and intact. Once your freight is ready to go, it’ll be shipped out—usually between 24 to72 hours. If your item is backordered, you’ll receive a follow-up e-mail with a new estimated time of delivery. However, factors beyond our control, such as inclement weather, may slow down the progress of your order once it’s shipped. Use our sophisticated software to stay updated on where your freight is.

6. What are the shipping policies?

Deliveries occur Monday to Friday, between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. local time. If no one is home to accept the delivery, a notification card may be left with further details; or, if your freight is small, it may be left at the door.

Multiple items may be shipped separately due to size and may arrive at different times. Delivery is typically to the front door of houses and the ground floor lobby of an apartment or condominium complex. Delivery vehicles are not allowed on private property.

7. What shipping methods are available?

Standard ground/freight shipping is our main mode of transportation when delivering goods.
