Plant Shipping Changes
We've changed our plant shipping rates! Hopefully this is much better for our customers. Inflation and fuel costs are really stating to play a part in the cost of shipping Canada wide.
In the past we've used real time rates generated by our store and shipping apps, those rates are still there, but we have added a few more! With larger volume plant orders we can offer cheaper shipping rates and absorb some of the shipping cost. What will this mean for our customers? More plants! Cheaper shipping!
As most of our customers know, live plants need to ship fast! Faster than fast! This will ensure top quality plants delivered to your doorstep.
All of our plant shipping rates shown are 100% guaranteed by our DOA policy. We rarely have shipping issues, it works out to less than 1% of our orders. Obviously there still can be delays and the potential for shipping problems is present. Our DOA policy covers that, no worries. Just pick the cheapest rate shown, we'll get you your plants!
We've created regional rates. Shipping from Calgary to Newfoundland is a long way! Express shipping is more expensive than shipping Calgary to British Columbia or Ontario. And honestly, if you're on the east coast we're happy to ship to you, but save yourself a bit of cash and source what you are looking for a bit closer to home if you can.
What are our new rates?
As mentioned above, shipping shorter distances is generally cheeper. We have slightly different rates for different parts of Canada. These rates will only apply to live plants. So if there is anything else in your cart you won't see the plant shipping rate. It is ridiculously expensive to express ship heavy bulky items like aquariums and stone, those items ship by ground for the best rate. If you have plants in your cart only rates suitable for shipping live plants will show up. It would be cheeper to check out twice if you have 20lbs of stone and a couple tissue culture plants.
What are our new rates? Theres a lot! All based amount ordered.
Canada Wide Free shipping on plant orders over $150.00
Other rates for orders over $50, $75, $100. Rates will vary by province and region starting at $10 up to $20. Of course all rates shown are 100% DOA.
We've been shipping plants as a business since 2015 and several years prior as hobbyists. We're confidant that we can maintain our shipping track record and give our customers a bit of a deal on shipping live plants.
Hope everybody has a great weekend!
