Tails and Scales ships products across Canada. We now offer multiple carrier shipping and use a number of the most familiar shipping companies in Canada including Fed Ex, UPS, Purolator, Canpar, Dicom and Canada Post. Shipping charges have increased steadily during Covid and we have had to increase some of our shipping charges and minimums to reflect these much higher costs.

Surcharges for heavy objects and oversized items will, for most products, be automatic and will be reflected in the listed shipping charge.
