Shipping Information

  • All items are sent by Canada Post, CANPAR or UPS depending on location, size of parcel and regulations.

  • Items will be insured (unless under $100 and going by letter mail) and a signature required.

  • We can ship ammunition within Canada ONLY. 

  • Ammunition has to be shipped CANPAR or UPS.  This also requires you to give us a physical address, not a PO Box #. Ammunition must be sent to the address on file with the CFO, or to a Courier Depot.

  • Ammunition is heavy and therefore a minimum charge would be roughly $30.00 to ship. 

  • Shipping charge will be determined after preparation.

  • If possible firearms and other items will be packaged together.

  • Cost to ship a firearm can vary based on value. An example of a $400.00 firearm going to Alberta would cost $55- $65 to ship.

  • You will be emailed a tracking number to your email on file, when your parcel is sent out. Please check your junk email; this email will come from the shipping company.

  • Your credit card will be charged before the parcel leaves.

  • If you require an invoice with the actual shipping charge, or have not received your tracking # and notice the charge on your credit card please email sara@switzersauction.com and one will be emailed to you.

  • In the event that your parcel is returned to us, you will be charged for the return fee.
