Shipping Locations, Fees & COVID-19

The way the shipping works with the Exchange is that YOU pay to ship YOUR wine to YOUR door (we just make it painless and completely transparent to you). Beyond Ontario, our exemplary and unparalleled national service, Canada Post, will deliver anywhere across this great, united country, right from sea to shining sea.

Since wine is essential (we all knew that), shipments are proceeding during the COVID-19 crisis, details here.

In Ontario we use professional wine couriers, not Canada Post.
Our couriers cover 95% of the province:
• Timax (GTA only) $17/case on average
• Phyxiat (Ontario outside GTA) $18/case on average

Canada Post is the last resort in Ontario. If you live south of Sudbury, you have a 95% probability that your wine will be delivered by courier, not by Canada Post.

Below are the average shipping costs paid in the last six months (as of April 5th, 2020) to the most popular destinations.

Wine Deliveries are proceeding during COVID-19:

We are using Timax as the default delivery service in the GTA and Phyxiat outside of the GTA in the rest of Ontario. Both services have made modifications to avoid contact around obtaining signatures. They will establish contact with you before leaving the wine at your door for delivery.

We think a courier delivery is a better experience for our customers. If you are not home they will coordinate a delivery later and they are less expensive than Canada Post. Timax and Phyxiat will not be requiring signatures during this crisis: “Due to COVID-19, we are going to stop getting the customers to sign the paperwork and the driver is just going to write their name on the Bill of Lading instead of passing the paperwork back and forth.”

Canada Post has eliminated the need for stylus pens to be passed back and forth during the delivery process. “Instead, our delivery agent will leave a notice card indicating the post office where you can pick up your items by showing proof of identity.” In those cases, you will be given a card with information on where to go to pick up and sign for your parcel. If you are sick or under self-isolation, please arrange for someone to pick up these items in your place”.  More details here => Canada Post public update on Covid19.
