Shipping and Delivery

What can I expect during delivery?

All orders include Basic Home Delivery to the driveway of your home or office in major Canadian markets*. You may need the assistance of a friend or family member to help offload your furniture from the delivery truck and into your home. It is the customer’s responsibility to bring the items inside their premise, assemble if necessary, and dispose of all packaging.

Smaller items may ship with a small carrier, such as Purolator or CanPar. These items will be taken off the truck and brought to the first covered area of your home. If a particular item can only ship with a small carrier, we cannot offer any upgraded delivery service options.

Look for any rips, tears, or dents and make sure they are noted on the delivery receipt before signing.

If the driver has a portable signature device and you see damages to the boxes, please sign for the delivery as "damaged".

We request that you do not refuse the delivery if you see damages on the boxes. Just because the boxes are damaged doesn’t mean the actual item itself is. Refusing delivery also makes it much more difficult to address any claims as we will have to get the information from the shipping company.

All deliveries must be signed by an adult of legal age.

*Major markets include Vancouver, Victoria, Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City and their surrounding areas.  Many more Canadian cities not listed here are also included.  Please contact us for more information and to see if your order qualifies.  

How much is shipping?

FREE, Basic Home Delivery where you the customer helps unload is included in our prices!  This service includes delivery to the driveway or curb, depending on where you are located and what you are ordering.

Remote surcharges may apply on orders delivered outside of major markets, and in remote locations. For more details on what is considered remote, see below or contact us for more information. 

What is considered remote?

On occasion, our carriers may deem a certain area, based on postal code, to be a 'remote' delivery location.  This is because the carrier does not perform regular delivery in these areas and as a result, scheduling of dedicated routes is required with True Contemporary being charged remote delivery fees for these services.  These fees can range anywhere from $25 to several hundred dollars based on customer location.

Should your delivery address fall within a 'remote' delivery location, you will be contacted prior to shipment, informed of the charges and have the option to accept the order with the surcharge or cancel your order should you not wish to proceed.

Unfortunately, these fees are non-negotiable.

Can I choose what time the delivery is for, or a specific date?

Once the order is picked up by the carrier, or in the local area, the delivery company will contact you to arrange a delivery time that will work for you and the delivery company’s schedule. We will do our best to have an order delivered around a certain day or time, however, as we do rely on third party carriers to do deliveries we can not guarantee any delivery date or time.
