Within Canada – Delivery Service & Charges
Jules and Kent will use our local courier (Vancouver and the Lower Mainland) or Purolator. This includes residential deliveries.
Projected US Long-Distance Delivery Times (ground service)
From 3 to 7 business days, depending on distance and US Customs processes.
Order tracking and delivery confirmation for US shipments will be available for you online.
We’re required to complete additional paperwork to ensure each US shipment is delivered in a timely manner. Recent changes to US rules concerning the importation of food products means we’re unable to ship your US-bound gifts on the same day they’re ordered. We do however make every effort to ensure your order is on its way the next day. (During the busy holiday season we require extra lead time to ensure the timely arrival of your order.)
International delivery times and costs vary. Please contact us for a custom quote. For international shipments we use Canada Post’s Air Parcel service, which takes 6 to 10 business days, or longer. A tracking service is available for a substantial additional fee. A documentation fee of $5 per gift applies to these shipments, to cover required paperwork (International Commercial invoices, Prior Notice forms, Customs Declarations).
Our charges are based on the shipping address. If you’re ordering for shipment to multiple addresses, separate shipping costs apply to each address.
We’re only able to ship to P.O. Boxes using Canada Post. As we have to make a special trip to the Post Office, an additional $5.00 fee applies. This fee is in addition to the fees calculated on our website.
If you would prefer to pick up your order at our Vancouver facility, please call us to place the order and arrange a convenient pick-up time.
Weather Conditions – Weather conditions are beyond our control. If our same-day or overnight courier is unable to deliver your order due to weather conditions or the recipient is not there to receive the shipment, there isn’t anything we can do to ensure your order arrives when you’d really like it to get there. Especially during the busy holiday season, order early and allow for the possibility of weather delays to ensure we’re able to deliver when you want your order to arrive.
Warm and Cold Weather Care – When warm and cold weather strikes it can wreak havoc on food products. Courier delivery trucks and their warehouses can be very hot in the summer and very cold in the winter. If we’re concerned your shipment will be affected by extreme temperatures, we will contact you. Sometimes it’s just a matter of delaying a shipment for a couple of days, to ensure it arrives in good condition.
Same Day, Rush Orders – This may be possible, but can’t be guaranteed. If you need something right away, please call us: 604.736.2510. If we’re busy serving other customers and can’t answer the phone, please leave a message and we’ll get back to you. Also, you can send an email to: info [at] julesandkent [dot] com.
Rush orders are only available in the City of Vancouver and only if our courier is able to provide this service. In addition to the delivery cost, a $20.00 Rush courier charge applies.
Tracking your Order – When we send your order, if we’re using Purolator Courier to deliver the order, we will add your email address, and they will provide a shipment notification. This notification also includes a tracking #. Please note that this only applies to our Purolator courier shipments and some Canada Post overseas shipments.
If the order is sent with our Vancouver-based local courier company they generally lets us know when they’ve been unable to deliver an order. If the order isn’t received when you expect it, please email (info [at] julesandkent [dot] com) or or call us: 604.736.2510 and we will track the order. Please give us at least 24 hours to get back to you.
Redirection Fee – Please ensure you provide a complete and current address, including a phone number. If our courier company is unable to deliver to the address you provide, or the package must be re-directed, we’re charged extra. We have no choice but to bill you for the re-direct charges we receive. Your credit card will be charged an additional $12.00 plus any applicable tax for each re-direct.
Delivery Days – Delivery is available weekdays. If you need Saturday delivery, call us. Purolator offers limited delivery service on Saturdays, and for an additional fee. Sunday deliveries are not available. If your order during the weekend, it will be confirmed and processed the next business day.
Taxes – Taxes apply to all shipping charges and to the following food products: Black Ace Licorice and any of the Cocolico confectionary items. Otherwise, our food products are not taxable. The applicable taxes will be added to your Statement at the rates required.
