SHIPPING & RETURNS
Free Shipping Offer
Orders qualify for our Free Shipping Offer only if the total value of items on a single order exceeds $CAD 99.00 before taxes. Multiple orders to the same address must each exceed the $CAD 99.00 threshold to qualify for free shipping. All free shipping items include shipment ONLY via an economy Ground Service of our choosing, with a delivery standard of 1 to 9 days. You may have the option of a paid upgrade to a higher level of service if delivery is required in a shorter time frame. A small number of products that ship via courier do not qualify for free shipping because of an unusual length, shape or bulk that requires us to ship using a more expensive service than would normally apply for a product of the same weight.
Tailgate Charges levied by carriers for delivery of LTL Transport shipments to residences or other locations without a dock or forklift truck are not included in the free shipping service and are the responsibility of the customer.
Orders shipping outside Canada or the USA (when service is available) or to destinations in Hawaii, Alaska, the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and the Yukon Territory do not qualify for the Free Shipping Offer.
Items shipped free and subsequently returned will be subject to a restocking charge equivalent to the costs of outbound shipping, except in cases where we have made a material error in fulfilling your order. In this case, customers are also responsible for return shipping costs.
General Shipping Standards
Current shipping lead times are detailed on each product page and are based on the location of stocked items. In the vast majority of cases, we are able to ship in-stock products the next business day for orders placed before 4 pm Eastern time Monday through Thursday and before noon on Sunday for Monday delivery. Any items displaying shipping lead times greater than 1-2 Business Days will ship in the time frame indicated.
Note that in multi-product purchases, shipping costs are calculated based on the combined shipment weight of all items. If individual items within an order have varying lead times, the order will not ship until all items are available for shipment.
Special Order Items average a shipping lead time of about three weeks.
If there is an error in our data and we identify that one or more products on your order are back-ordered, you will be advised of the estimated shipping date for those products and you may cancel those items without penalty prior to shipping.
Special Order Products
Special Order products are defined as items that are not normally stocked by us and must be obtained direct from the manufacturer. Please confirm that the shipping lead time for any special order products (generally about three weeks) meets your scheduling needs (if any) as Special Order Product orders cannot be cancelled after they have been placed with the manufacturer. (see Returns Policy/“Special Order Products” below.)
Credit Card Charging Policy
Our policy is to charge the amount of your purchase with your credit card issuer at the time of order so it can be released to our internal systems for processing. This may be a day or two in advance of shipping the product. In the case of special orders, prepayment is required regardless of our lead time to ship (Returns Policy/Special Order Products below.)
We ship RV Parts daily across all of Canada from our Barrie, Ontario warehouse. Most shipments are sent via Canada Post, with larger parcels sent using Purolator Courier or UPS. We also ship items that exceed courier size/weight limits via LTL truck freight. Customers have a choice of various service levels depending on how urgent delivery is. Canadian customers are charged GST or HST on all purchases.
Orders from US customers are shipped from one of six warehouses nationwide, picked from one of the largest parts inventories in the country. For courier shipments, we use UPS exclusively and LTL Freight services are used for items exceeding UPS size/weight limits. Since all shipments to US customers are domestic, no brokerage, customs or duties apply. US customers are responsible for any applicable sales and use taxes.
Currently, we do not ship outside Canada or the USA. At such time as this service might be available, customers outside of Canada and the US are responsible for any applicable customs clearance costs, duties and local taxes. US and Canadian orders are shipped domestically, and no brokerage, customs or duties apply. US/Canadian customers will be charged any applicable taxes.

If you wish to return a product, please contact us to obtain a Returned Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. We will need your original order number and information on which items you wish to return from that order. We will generate an RMA number for you and send you a label to use on the return shipment.

To protect customers, all items must be inspected upon return to our warehouse for damage or missing parts. This process can take up to 2 weeks during normal times of the year, and can be longer in peak season. All returns, regardless of the reason, must undergo this process without exception.
