Shipping & Returns

Shipping

Shipping times displayed are nominal and typical for a broad area of Canada, however, shipments to the Atlantic provinces, Nunavut and the Yukon typically take longer and this is outside of our control.  Crossed Swords Fencing Equipment cannot be held liable for delays caused by the shipper due to any reason.  While Crossed Swords Fencing Equipment endeavours to meet shipping preferences of customers, Crossed Swords Fencing Equipment cannot be held responsible for a delivery not meeting a specific date for the customer.

We ship to any address in Canada or the United States. Outside of Canada or the United States, please contact us before ordering.  Note that there are restrictions on some products, and some products cannot be shipped to international destinations.

When you place an order, we will choose the carrier based on the availability of your items and the shipping options you choose.

Out of Stock Items

While in most cases, Crossed Swords Fencing Equipment is able to fullfill your order from in-stock inventory, this is not always possible.  Not all items are retained in inventory and at times, we sell out of any given item.  Customers will be notified by email if an item is out of stock, with an estimated delivery time for the order.  Crossed Swords Fencing Equipment reserves the right to partially ship an order, however, this is a discretionary decision.

Special Order Items

For non-stock items, Crossed Swords Fencing Equipment will order these items as a 'special purchase' from the supplier and will provide the customer with an estimated shipping date from Crossed Swords Fencing Equipment to them, the customer.  Crossed Swords Fencing Equipment cannot be held liable for items shipping outside of the  estimated shipping date for the order as inbound international shipment times are variable and stock levels of our suppliers are beyond our control.

These items are not returnable or refundable.
