Shipping Policy

Total Prepare ships across Canada, and charges are always in Canadian dollars. Please allow up to 7 business days for your order to ship once it is placed. You will be sent the tracking information for your order once it is ready for pick up by the courier.

Total Prepare uses secure, cost-effective, and safe couriers to deliver your products. Most orders will travel with either Canada Post, TForce Solutions, or FedEx, however alternatives may be used for larger orders or to meet specific geographic needs.

In cases where special services are required, such as a liftgate or delivery appointment, or if shipping to a remote location, additional costs will be applied. You will be contacted about these changes and nothing will be charged without your consent. If our team is unable to reach you within 30 days regarding incurred shipping charges, your order will be cancelled and refunded.

    • Large water storage containers are excluded from the FREE Shipping offer. Contact our team for a quote on these items.
    • Items that are exempt from Free Shipping will state this exemption on their product page and may incur shipping charges (even if Free Shipping is selected.) You will be contacted if this is the case.
    • Cancelling items, combining orders, or changing your shipping address, might affect your order’s eligibility for FREE Shipping.
    • Discounted corporate/group buys (non-online orders) may be excluded from Free Shipping.

Exchanges:

If you receive a faulty item from Total Prepare, please send a note and pictures of the damage to our team at [email protected]. If needed, the product can be returned to Total Prepare for inspection, complete with proof of customer shipping costs. If upon inspection by Total Prepare the item is deemed faulty, Total Prepare will ship a replacement item to the customer at no expense. Total Prepare will also include reimbursement to the customer for any shipping costs incurred to ship the faulty item back to Total Prepare.

If you would prefer to get a different item instead, Total Prepare will ship at no expense unless the shipping costs for the new item are substantially higher as compared to the original item. In this event, the customer will only be charged the increased shipping costs above and beyond what the original would have cost to ship. Total Prepare will also include reimbursement to the customer for any shipping costs incurred by the customer to ship the faulty item back to Total Prepare.

Total Prepare will notify customers via e-mail when the replacement items are processed and ready to be shipped.

NOTE:  Due to supplier mandates, prices are subject to change without notice.
