Additionally, we ship our products to Canada, but not to other international locations (large orders to other countries will be considered--email with details). The risk of loss and title for all merchandise ordered on this Web site pass to you when the merchandise is delivered to the shipping carrier.
Shipping Carriers: Our primary and first choice of shipper is FedEx Home Delivery(TM) and FedEx Ground(TM) due to shipping rates and outstanding track record for on-time delivery. We also use UPS, USPS Priority Mail, and USPS/FedEx SmartPost(TM), and reserve the right to ship via whichever means and method that makes the most sense to us.
Shipping Rates: Shipping charges/rates are based many factors, including, but not limited to, product sizes, weights, and volume; box sizes and number of boxes to fill your order; your location and whether it's a residential or commercial delivery area; and myriad other particulars. The best way to determine the cost of shipping is to begin an online order for the products you wish to purchase and follow the online screens until you get to the shipping screen. On that screen, you'll have a minimum of three options to evaluate and select from. FedEx is defaulted and is usually the least expensive, but feel free to select another method.
Shipments to Canada: Customs and import duties may be applied to International orders when the shipment reaches its destination. Such charges are the responsibility of the recipient of your order and vary from country to country. Contact your local customs office for details.
All unpaid charges/duties/fees that are NOT paid by the recipient and subsequently billed to Rob Riedl Enterprises and/or The Birdhouse Depot shall be charged to the customer using the crediti card account from the original order. Charges will be billed at actual cost plus 15% in addition to a 30% processing and handling fee.
Shipping laws are different in each country. It is your responsibility, the purchaser, to check with your Customs office to verify whether the country to which you are shipping permits the shipment of your products. The Birdhouse Depot and/or Rob Riedl Enterprises is not responsible for any direct, indirect, punitive, or consequential damages that arise from improper international shipping practices.
