will only use this method to ship a package within Canada. We require that all
of our packages are tracked with insurance in order to protect us and our
customers from a variety of things that can go wrong that neither party has
control over once a package is in transit. We will not use uninsured or
untrackable shipping methods within Canada.
Expected Arrival for USA
will only ship items to the USA using Canada Post’s Expedited International USA
or Small Packet Air services.
to the Canada Post website, Expedited take “as little as 6 days.” In our
experience the average is closer to approximately 15 business days for arrival
for many of our stateside customers. This service is fully insured and comes
with full tracking. Tracking is available on both the USPS and Canada Post
Canada Post website also claims that Small Packet Air takes 6-10 business days.
In our experience the average is closer to 20 business days for arrival using
this service. Despite Small Packet Air packages being insured, they do not
offer Small Packet Air shipping on certain items in order to keep the cost of
shipping low for clients who are willing to wait a little bit longer for their
package and who do not feel that tracking is necessary to meet their individual
needs. If you want more peace of mind and faster shipping then we encourage you
to choose Expedited shipping.
If Small Packet Air is
not offered as a shipping option for this particular item then this means that
this item is too heavy, too large or has a higher value than the maximum
insured value for using this service.
to border laws, some of our packages will inevitably be held by customs.
Customs is allowed to hold a package for 12 days. We are NOT
responsible for customs delays or any fees or duty that may incur due to customs.
International shipping almost always takes a few weeks for arrival; please be
prepared for potential customs delays and for the fact that since your package
has to cross an international border that it will take longer than if you
purchased the item domestically. Border security is only getting tighter and
delays will happen.
you have picked Expedited shipping and your package does not arrive in the 15
day timeframe then please check your tracking information at www.canadapost.ca or www.usps.com: it may be held up by customs. If you
have any questions or concerns please contact us.
you have picked Small Packet Air shipping and your package has not arrived
within the 20 day timeframe please let us know. This could mean that your
package is being held by customs, but without tracking it is impossible to know
note that Canada Post requires that 30 days must pass before a claim can be
filed on international items. If your package does not arrive within 30 days of
us shipping it then please contact us. We will call Canada Post to file a claim
on your behalf. The claims process can take a couple of weeks, and it is our
hope that a Canada Post investigation may find a package that has not arrived.
If Canada Post cannot find your package once an investigation has been
completed then we will refund you for the total amount of the item via Paypal.
We will do everything that we can to accommodate you if there is a problem with
your package, but we expect you to contact us if you have any
questions, concerns, or problems with an item that you purchase from East Coast
Toys and Games. Please be patient if your package is delayed because once we
ship an item we have little control over what happens to it. We take customer
service and customer satisfaction very seriously and will do everything that we
can to accommodate you if you have a problem with something purchased from us.
offer combined shipping on our items whenever possible. Some of our items, such
as posters, may be difficult to combine with other items. In cases like this we
will not offer combined shipping or will mention shipping alternatives. Also,
if you prefer Small Packet Air as a shipping method please note that weight,
size and value of the items you purchase may prevent us from being able to use
this method. Despite this, Expedited shipping is always an option for combined
shipping (unless combining items is unsafe as in the example of posters noted
combined shipping rates are not fixed. Instead we will base combined shipping
rates on weight and package size. We will even offer free combined shipping on
many of our items (if possible), but this depends entirely on the size and
weight of the items that are purchased.
DO NOT PAY FOR ITEMS
THAT YOU WANT TO COMBINE INTO ONE PACKAGE BEFORE WE SEND YOU AN INVOICE WITH
THE PROPER SHIPPING AMOUNT!
If you are interested in purchasing multiple items
please contact us so we can discuss shipping rates. Do not pay for multiple
purchases until we send you the proper invoice: Now that eBay is charging final
value fees on shipping we will charge a surcharge in order to cover these fees
if customers want combined shipping but pay for their items separately. We
try to keep our combined shipping rates as low as possible. If you are
purchasing two low weight, small size items, then it is probable that you may
not have to pay any additional shipping costs.
a registered business in Canada we are required to collect GST/HST on all
Canadian transactions. If you live in a province that has HST then you are
required to pay full HST on any item purchased from East Coast Toys and Games;
similarly, if your live in a province that does not have HST then you will be
required to pay 5% GST on any item purchased from East Coast Toys and Games.
This system is based on us being required to charge tax based on parcel
of the USA Territories are legally exempt from paying GST or HST on almost all
items purchased from Canada. This is due to taxation being based on the
destination, and GST/HST is a Canadian only form of taxation. This does not exempt you from potential
customs charges or duty that may incur.
offer free local pickup on all of our items, but you must pick up the item from
us at our home. We do not deliver items. We require that all of our items are
paid for via Paypal and this includes local pickup items. Local pickup does not
exempt you from paying the 15% HST that is charged on all items that are picked
up locally from us in Nova Scotia.

Our “Me” Page Bulletin
happens. Sometimes we are away on a business trip or to visit family and
friends; other times there may be medical or weather related emergencies or
inconveniences that may prevent us from being able to contact you or respond to
your messages in a timely manner. Life incidents may prevent us from being able
to ship our items the next day (except Sundays, as we only ship Monday-Saturday).
If something happens where we are away we will post this information on our
ebay “Me” page. We recommend for our customers to ALWAYS check our “Me”
Page before purchasing an item in case we are away. We never want our
customers to feel neglected, and it is not feasible for us to alter over 2000
items on short notice, so we are continuously posting important dates on our
“Me” page. Check it out!
