Shipping charges are not flat rates…there is a minimum charge…so anything up to 500 lbs is that flat rate.  Beyond that, the charges are priced per pound, with the rate per pound decreasing at 1000 lbs, 2000 lbs, 5000 lbs, etc.

We ship truck orders via Maritime-Ontario Freightworks.  Transit time to Dartmouth is 2 days, and to Sydney is 3 days.  You have 3 days to pickup your order from the terminal before storage charges begin.  If delivery to a ground level door is required, a flat rate of $100 will be added.

Rates to the Halifax Terminal or loading dock in HRM:
  500 lbs - $75 spring through fall, $95 in winter
  750 lbs - $90 spring through fall, $105 in winter
1000 lbs - $105 spring through fall, $125 in winter
1500 lbs - $160 spring through fall, $185 in winter
2000 lbs - $205 spring through fall, $235 in winter
2500 lbs - $250 spring through fall, $290 in winter
5000 lbs - $445 spring through fall, $515 in winter

Rates to the Sydney terminal, or any loading dock in Sydney:
  500 lbs - $85 spring through fall, $100 in winter
  750 lbs - $110 spring through fall, $125 in winter
1000 lbs - $125 spring through fall, $140 in winter
1500 lbs - $185 spring through fall, $210 in winter
2000 lbs - $225 spring through fall, $260 in winter
2500 lbs - $280 spring through fall, $325 in winter
5000 lbs - $500 spring through fall, $575 in winter

When a truck shipment leaves here, an email is sent out the next morning with the PRO (tracking number) for that shipment so that you can call the local terminal to confirm the expected arrival.  The telephone numbers are: Dartmouth 902-468-1351, Sydney 902-562-6226.

Shipments to smaller outlying towns are quoted individually, but as a rule of thumb, if you are more than 50 kms from one of the above terminals, and less than 200 kms from one of those terminals, you could add 20% to the above rates and be pretty close.

Small packages are shipped by UPS.  As an example, many small packages (say, a few pints of glaze, some tools, and kiln parts) can be shipped via UPS for between $15-$18 for ground service (3 days transit time), and around $25 for Next Day Air service.

Typical turnaround time for us for an order of stock supply items is 1-2 days.  If you place an order through our website, once you finish filling your cart it will generate an email that confirms to you that your order was received.  That email will state that we will make you a formal quote including shipping and taxes, and that we will reach out to you with that information for you to approve the order and provide us with a Visa or MC#.  Once you’ve provided payment details, we’ll get your order into the queue and if it is comprised of in stock items we will ship in a day or two.  This means an order placed by noon on Monday could arrive in Dartmouth as early as Thursday. 

Small, UPS orders for kiln parts alone will ship next day guaranteed, or even the same day if the order is sent in early enough as we know how important a kiln is to your whole process.

If a group wish to combine their orders into one invoice and one shipping charge, Tuckers will apply the quantity discount for clay.  (e.g. twelve people each wanting ten boxes of clay:  one invoice for 120 boxes would get the 100+ price, but they must figure out how to divide up the shipping costs themselves.)
If a group wish to each have their own invoice (with Tuckers packaging items separately and breaking out the shipping charge between each person) the quantity discount applies to each individual invoice.  (e.g. twelve people each ordering 10 boxes:  each person  gets the 7 - 45 box discount, but Tuckers will figure out how much each one owes for shipping, and bill them separately.)
