Shipping

WINTER 2023: Shipping is currently paused. It may return in late February 2023, or it may not; It pushes the limits of our team and pulls focus from much of our other work in store. 

We know shipping prices are high, and have adjusted our 2022 rates to help cover the costs. Canada wide shipping is offered through Canada Post - rates are calculated at check out, the prices charged are typically ~$5 less than the actual cost to The Trainyard to ship items. 

All orders will receive a tracking number, and should arrive within 5-10 days to NS, NB, PEI and may take over 2 weeks to arrive at other Canadian addresses. COVID-19 precautions have delayed deliveries as all carriers are experiencing increased volume, we can't control how long it takes unfortunately! 

Packages are prepared and shipped Tuesday through Friday. It may take up to 5 days for your order to be picked up by the carrier - a confirmation email will be sent as soon as it is en route to you. 

All packages are shipped using recycled packaging materials to reduce our environmental impact.   

Shipping Rates

Shipping rates are calculated automatically at check out, please remember Canada Post increased its rates again this year. For the Maritimes smaller orders should ship with tracking for $12-16, rest of Canada tracked shipping typically starts at $18-23. In the event shipping significantly miscalculates we will contact you for payment before the order is shipping. 

Lettermail shipping for smaller items that can ship untracked lettermail will show at checkout for eligible orders. If it doesn't show as an option but an item can be sent lettermail a shipping refund will be issued. 

In the event items in your order arrive damaged please contact us immediately, events@trainyardstore.com Please contact us as soon as possible if you have any special shipping instructions or need to change the address. 

 

Local Order Pick Up

You'll receive confirmation with pick up instructions once your order is prepared. Same day pick up is NOT available on weekends due to the volume of in-store customers; Orders placed Friday at 5pm through Monday evening will most often be ready for pick up on Tuesday. 

Please wait for confirmation before arriving to pick up your order to avoid disappointment. If you don't receive an order confirmation email within 48 hours please check your junk mail or contact us (902) 407-5242.
