Shipping Terms & Options

What are your shipping terms? 

Acart’s shipping terms are FOB destination prepaid and added to the invoice.

Where do you ship to?

We ship to all Canadian provinces and territories. We do not ship to the United States. If you are ordering from outside of Canada, please contact us for a quote.

How long will my order take? 

It depends on the product ordered; each product in our database shows its typical availability. Even though we have 1,000+ unique items in stock in our warehouse, we also drop-ship and/or consolidate items from various partner manufacturers. Our customer service team will provide the most accurate lead time upon formal confirmation of your order and collaborate with you on the most preferred shipping method

Can I use my own freight/courier account? 

Acart offers you the option to use your facility’s freight account by selecting Bill My Freight/Courier Account. Our customer service team will retrieve the information at the point of order confirmation and fulfilment. Shipping terms are FOB Origin when using your own freight account. .

What about large orders that will not ship courier ?

If your item weighs more than 100 lb. (sometimes 150 lb. depending on the product), Acart offers our LTL (Less Than Truckload) rate. This is when logistics providers transport your order on a truck with other shipments. If orders are several pallets/carts, a full truckload may be required. For LTL and truckload shipments, unloading is performed by the receiver. Additional services such as unloading (driver assist), appointment-deliveries, inside deployment and tail-gate trucks are extra.

What if my product arrived damaged?

Customers must inspect every delivery. If there are any visible signs of damage, you must sign the waybill for the product damaged and notify customer service as soon as possible; images of damage are encouraged. Acart will replace the damaged item at no additional charge or may offer a discount on the product if the customer opts out of waiting for a replacement.

If there is concealed damage, you must notify customer service upon discovery of damage with supporting images. Acart cannot necessarily provide a refund or exchange for concealed damage; claims are on a case-by-case basis with the carrier. Acart is not responsible for damage claims when items are shipped collect or by a third-party freight provider (e.g. Opti-Freight).

Do you offer same-day shipping ?

Most courier in-stock items can ship the same day for orders received by 12:00 p.m. EST.

Do you offer curbside pickup?

Stock items can be picked up at no charge at our Mississauga location upon confirmation from our customer service team.

Do you have weekend delivery?

Courier Priority shipping option is available and an upcharge for weekend delivery may be available. Weekend delivery is not available for LTL or truckload shipments.

Assembly, Installation & Deployment

Can you pre-assemble products?

We offer pre-assembly of stock or consolidated product (not drop shipped) at our Ontario location. Depending on the location we ship either rolling or palletized. Assembly charges are added to the product and are based on product type.

Can you assemble products onsite?

We offer onsite assembly which is arranged with our local representative and their team. This is dependent on the client’s location and is subject to availability. For onsite assembly, we require access to a dedicated staging/assembly location and to waste and recycling bins for organized disposal of pallets and/or packaging materials. Assembly charges are added to the product and are based on product type. Assembly does not necessarily include product deployment/set-in-place.

For cabinetry, this can include the installation/securing of cabinets. Acart will work with you on a full-scope solution based on your requirements.
