SHIPPING AND HANDLING
1. What is your shipping method?
Modern Hobbies uses Canada Post® Standard Domestic and International Shipping. Modern Hobbies charges a flat rate to our customers to help eliminate variable weight and fuel charges. For the first time, MH now ships to any country in the World!
MH is fortunate enough to offer very reasonable shipping to the USA and International with expected delivery times as little as 4-7 days. Unfortunately local shipping with-in Canada is frustratingly high, over $15.00 from MH to a local town just an hour away. MH has to offset this cost by charging a few dollars more for USA and International in order to provide reasonable shipping for everyone.
2. What are your shipping charges?
Small Packet - International Air
$12.00 International - (All other countries outside USA & Canada) ….Please allow up to 7-14 days for delivery
Small Packet - USA Air
$10.00 USA (All states)…Please allow up to 4-7 days for delivery
$10.00 Domestic (Canada only & Nation wide) ……Please allow up to 5-7 days for delivery
3. When will my order be shipped?
All orders will ship out within 1-to-3 days. Why? MH resin accessories are cast upon receiving orders and are not mass produced. This is to help maintain quality control and to preserve the life of our production molds. This translates to consistency and quality resin accessories for you, my customers. *Please keep in mind that delivery times can vary depending on weather, destination, any customs/ duty issues outside the control of Modern Hobbies.
MH takes great care in packaging your orders, however some items can become damaged during shipping. If you receive a irreparable/ damaged part please do not send back. Instead send MH an email including your name, order number and the affected part(s) and MH will simply send you a replacement. Easy.
