International Shipping & USA Shipping
Overseas Shipping (Small Quantities) Hints for the USA & International
While West Wind Hardwood can source top quality products and are happy to courier & freight to our US and International customers, sometimes shipping will exceed the actual cost of the goods ordered & is not the best choice for our customers.
PLYWOOD – Small Quantities (3 sheets or less)
If you are ordering plywood to be shipped to the States or Internationally, please be advised we can only ship in a cost effective way IF we can cut the plywood into a more manageable size for shipping.
We have found that it is far too expensive for some of our customers in the UNITED STATES & INTERNATIONALLY to have FULL PLYWOOD SHEETS shipped to them and sometimes we must simply recommend our customers source the materials closer to home, for cost saving purposes.
HARDWOODS, SOFTWOODS & OTHER PRODUCTS (Under 150 lbs or Low Value Commodity-type Products)
We use UPS and the Postal Service to ship our smaller wood products. If you would like to estimate if it’s worth your while ordering from us here in beautiful British Columbia, Canada – please visit the following sites, pop in our address freighting to your address and they can give you an estimate of how much freight will cost you. We can help you determine size and weight.
Customer Query from Sacramento, California 95816
“I’m looking to find roasted birch and would like a quote, including to have the goods shipped to me direct here in the US. I would be interested in 3/4 or 1" planks at least 6 inches wide or larger and about 20 board feet.”
The birch cost at $5.50/bdft is only $110, but the freight and brokerage costs for 20 bdft (70 lbs) is estimated at $160, making this somewhat uneconomical.
