By Design Modern has experience in global shipping and uses a variety of different carriers to ship your item to you, wherever you are in the world.

CANADA
There are a few different shipping options within Canada and they depend on,
• Where you are located
• What level of service you require
• Size, weight and quantity of items being shipped

Greyhound Courier Express (GCX)
For single items that overall weigh less than 100 lbs or can be dismantled into separate packages each under 70lbs we can ship using Greyhound to most cities and towns in Canada. Most large cities offer a home delivery service while with smaller locales, pick up at the local station is required by the purchaser.
For items shipped with Greyhound, By Design Modern will carefully package your item in sturdy, secure materials to insure a safe arrival. Shipping quotes given, using Greyhound, include packaging, handling and actual freight charges. Greyhound does not offer insurance on their shipments. Please see the insurance section below for more on this.
Transit time for Greyhound shipments is usually 7-10 days from the date of shipment and typically a single item being shipped will not exceed $150.

LTL or Freight Carriers
For larger and heavier items, By Design Modern can ship your item using a LTL or freight company.
This method requires packaging the item at By Design Modern’s warehouse and usually there are two options for receiving it. Either the consignee (that’s you) can pick up the item at the LTL’s warehouse or for a higher fee, they can deliver to your home or office, although curbside delivery is typically the only option.
Transit time is usually 10-14 business days and coverage can be limited to larger metropolitan areas. Typically single items, depending on size and weight, that are shipped this method can range between $250-$500.

Blanket Wrap Moving Companies
Blanket wrap movers are the safest way to move large and expensive items long distances and By Design Modern works with a few reputable movers within Canada. As it is generally the highest level of service, with the items(s) being delivered inside your home or office and the item being blanketed and carried by two people to its’ final destination, moving companies tend to be the least budget conscious method of shipping. However, when wanting to insure that your special piece arrives safe and sound, blanket wrap movers are the best choice.
Transit time can vary from 4-6 weeks depending on where you are in the country and typically rates range from $250-$600+ again depending on where you are in the country and how many items are being shipped.

Air Freight
Shipping items by air to your local airport, is another option for having your item sent to you. This requires you to collect it at the airport and is usually very fast. However, with rising fuel costs and the addition of more and more airport fees, air freight may not be the most cost effective method but when time is a concern then air freight is a great option.
