Our standard method of shipping is Canada Post Expedited. Once a package leaves our warehouse, we have no control over its movement. We can't guarantee a date that your order will arrive.
Windy Point is NOT responsible for stolen parcels. If a parcel was left at your address and has gone missing. We will file a claim with the carrier on your behalf but we will not re-ship or refund your order until the carrier deems the parcel as lost or undelivered.
All Canada Post orders are now sent with full insurance. This includes orders over $100.00.
Canada Post orders of $100 or less before tax are insured by default.
Orders over $100 before tax will have additional insurance added to cover the value of the order.
Orders over $200 before tax will still require a signature for delivery, but now will also have additional insurance added.
If you would like "no signature required" please add a note to your order. NOTE: Choosing "no signature required" will void all insurance on the parcel including replacements or refunds for any damages or losses. This applies to all carriers.
Additional insurance does not guarantee a full refund of your purchase. The carrier must still investigate loss or damage and decide on any payouts.

PICK UP ORDERS
When the order is ready for pick up, you will get an email notification. Due to the increase in volume, we require a minimum of 6 business hours to prepare orders and ask that you please wait until you get the email before arriving at our store.
Pick up Orders are held for 14 days. You will be reminded at intervals that your order is still available for pickup. Orders not picked up after 14 days are subject to cancellation with a 20% restocking fee. Please contact us if you are unable to pick your order up within 14 days of placing it.
COURIER PICK UP ORDERS
You may send your own courier, but this must be noted in advance. Courier pickups must still be packed for shipping.
Select Local Pickup as your shipping option and leave a comment in the note section on the Cart page prior to checkout that this will be a courier pickup. They are processed in the order that they are received.
Do not send your courier until the warehouse sends you the weights and dimensions of your parcel. You must then provide us with a waybill/ shipping label to attach to your parcel. You may then schedule your courier to pickup.
If you request your courier pickup to be palletized - there is a $50.00 fee per pallet for this and you will also be expected to provide the correct Bill of Lading for your shipment. We will print these and give them to the courier with your order. These orders require pickup appointments during the hours listed below and unfortunately couriers who are sent before the orders are ready will be turned away.
Palletized orders must be picked up within 48 business hours of being notified when ready or risk cancellation.
Cancelled palletized orders are subject to 30% restocking fee.

When will my order ship?
As noted in your order confirmation email, we update our website banner every weekday with the dates we are shipping. We cannot provide an exact date when your order will ship due to the variations in the volume of orders received on any given day.
I want to add on to my order:
We cannot make additions to orders. You will need to place another order but you may select Pick Up so you're not charged shipping. Please add your original order number in the note section on the Cart page of your add on order. We will then ship both of your orders together however you will not receive a shipping confirmation for your add on order. You do not need to call or send us an email to let us know you've placed a second order. We reserve the right to invoice a customer if additional shipping is required for the add on order(s). We cannot accept add on orders if your original order date is listed on the website banner as a date currently being shipped or if your order has been fulfilled and a tracking number has been sent to you.
I just received a shipping notification but I can't track my order?
You will not be able to track your order until after Canada Post has picked up from us and scanned the daily manifest which is late in the afternoon, Monday - Friday. Canada Post does not pick up on weekends or stat holidays so if you receive a shipping notification on a weekend/holiday, you will not be able to track it until Monday/next business day evening.
I placed an add on order and got a shipping notification for my original order but didn't get one for the add on?
Orders with the shipping method Pick Up cannot have tracking numbers attached to them. You can log into your account to see the fulfilment status of your add on orders.
My order says "delivered" but it wasn't, what do I do?
