School Specialty Canada Shipping Policy

The item numbers and legend information in our catalogs can be used to determine the method of shipment. Items that begin with a 6 ship via freight. Items that begin with a 5 or 9 ship via parcel. In addition, some items include alpha codes that indicate special shipping & handling requirements. Orders containing a mixture of items will be subject to applicable shipping and handling charges.

We reserve the right to determine the method used to fulfill your order and special orders may incur additional shipping and handling fees. Within the various provinces in Canada, there are many remote delivery locations, which can also incur additional extended area surcharges. Additional delivery service fees can include, but are not limited to, “inside delivery,” “lift gate,” and “hazardous material delivery.” Individual items that exceed shipping size restrictions may be subject to additional fees.
