NOTE: UPS is now becoming more competitive for both domestic and International shipping vs USPS, depending on weight and shipping address. Global Post may be the best value/timeframes for Canadian & International orders.
While the rates keep rising at an accelerating rate, this is evolving and may change. Also, the time frames internationally can be greatly reducing shipping internationally with Global Post or UPS. Shipments have been arriving in less than a week. We will ship either Global Post, USPS or UPS, depending on the best rate we can get with shortest time frames.
Contact us for an shipping quotes, even for small orders.
For Canadian orders via Global Post Plus (not Global Post Economy or International), we are charged duty/sales tax relative to your Province and may need to ask for additional payment a month after your order to cover unanticipated charges not included in shipping charge. If there are shipping overages, we will refund them.
Here is a Canadian Duty/Sales Tax calculator.
The United States Postal Service (USPS) is our primary shipper within the US. For Domestic shipping costs and USPS internationally, we use a price based shipping method that is estimated in the shopping cart that reduces, the more you purchase. Spreading shipping cost over more products reduces shipping cost per item. Consider adding items to an order to add to your overall savings.
Orders usually ship the same day if it is placed before 11 AM, MTS. Otherwise the next business day or most Saturdays for USPS. Some items may ship from one of our suppliers or drop shippers and will ship per their shipper and time frame.
For US Orders:
(See note at top) SlideWright ships domestically with an $10 Flat shipping and handling via USPS Priority Mail, Ground Advantage. For orders over $149 the shipping is FREE for USPS shipping. (U.N.O.= Unless Noted Otherwise as Free Shipping exempt). For small orders, consider adding items you will need, to spread the shipping cost over more items. With substantially rising shipping costs, these policies are becoming more necessary for all small businesses.

After setting up a Customer Account (with shipping address), add desired items to your cart or a Wish List and then contacting us, provides an excellent method to provide accurate shipping costs for your items. The store shipping estimator charges an average shipping cost relative to our large range of items, costs and weights and may not necessarily be accurate relative to the items in your cart.
The store shipping estimator cannot differentiate between small vs larger items or light vs heavier items AND determine in which Shipping Box size they will fit AND changing costs by country. Therefore, each international order is reviewed relative to the weight based, USPS International Postage Calculator for current USPS rates. We will reimburse shipping overages when possible to your customer account. For large and heavier items it may be necessary to request additional payment to help cover most of any excessive shipping costs to us from the shipping company.
