Here are some more general updates:
Our least expensive ‘Standard Tracked Shipping’ option typically arrives on the shorter end of the estimated time when going to major cities but there is no delivery time guarantee (i.e. you won’t get your postage refunded if it takes longer than the estimate; some of our more expensive options do offer a such a guarantee). We’re in Montreal, close to the New York, so east coast deliveries are typically quickest.
For a real-world estimate here are the actual delivery times for the last batch of parcels we sent to the USA via Standard Tracked Shipping:
- Minneapolis, MN (4 business days).
- Pueblo, CO (7 business days)
- Casper, WY (4 business days)
- Providence, RI (3 business days)
- San Francisco, CA (4 business days)
- Hoboken, NJ (2 business days)
Our Standard Tracked Shipping provider is reporting slower than usual delivery times in British Columbia due to the flooding situation. In all other areas, we’re seeing normal delivery times.
