- After receiving your RMA form,
simply pack up the goods with appropriate packing (damage is at your
risk!) and ship it using Canada Post Expedited Parcel Post.

form and a copy of your "PAID" invoice. Pack up the goods,
again with appropriate packing, and attach a copy of your "PAID"
invoice in a document enclosure on the outside of your package. It
is very important you follow these directions. Unless these

Do not use FedEx Ground or
UPS Ground because they will charge extra for brokerage
fees that are normally included on air shipments. This is a big
money earner for these companies. To put it bluntly they are
ripping you off. The brokerage fees on ground courier
shipments are based on the value of the goods. If the
goods arrive unannounced we will refuse to accept
them to avoid the excessive brokerage fees.
- Canada Post will
us charge a handling fee of $5.00 unless the declared value is less
than $20 CAD (approx $16.00 US).
- On receipt of
your goods, we will exchange, refund or replace as appropriate -
assuming they are in as-new and unused condition. Don't think
you can go sailing and then return them! We will also refund
your shipping charges if the problem is our fault.
