Shipping and Handling Policy


On orders where Standard Freight applies (via Canada Post, Canpar or LTL-Less than Truckload or Skid shipments), Wintergreen will ship pre-paid and add 15% shipping and handling to your invoice.



For all orders with a subtotal of $66.00 or under, a minimum freight charge of $9.95 will be added. Orders with a subtotal over $66 will be charged 15% freight. Note: If items cannot be shipped within these minimums we will contact you with a freight quote.


Please inform Customer Service of any Special Delivery Requirements at the time of placing your order. The more information on delivery conditions you can provide, the better for our Quote Team to provide an accurate quote for freight & delivery.

While our standard freight percentage apply to most orders, there are occasions where we review orders and are required to present an updated, accurate freight quote amount as determined based on Carrier rates. In these instances, you will be contacted by a member of our Team with a freight quote, for your approval. These special delivery requirements include, but are not limited to: inside, beyond threshold delivery, delivery to a specific room or floor in the building, oversized items, and delivery to remote addresses. 

Please note that “delivery” refers to a threshold delivery and includes delivery to a safe exterior area such as a garage, covered porch or just inside the exterior door of the building.

Drivers will not provide delivery beyond the door of the building. If beyond threshold delivery is required, it is considered to be a special requirement and will require a review of freight charges. 

All freight charges beyond Provincial forwarding points are the responsibility of the customer. Please call for a freight quote.

Delivery service does not include set up, assembly of items, haul away or removal of packaging materials and debris. Should you require installation, assembly and/or debris removal, please contact us and we would be happy to provide you with a quote. 

Please contact us if any of the following special conditions apply:

  • You require inside delivery (beyond the door of the building) 
  • Delivery to a specific location within the building
  • Is the location a Beyond destination
  • Is not a ground floor delivery and you require special handling such as a second floor or basement 
  • Pallets will need to be disassembled to get order through delivery doors or inside doors 

Please note: In the case of remote/extreme remote shipping locations and oversized items, we will be reviewing freight charges and will contact you regarding your order. Please see a list of remote destination postal codes below or contact us for confirmation.
