Shipping & Handling Information

We only send orders via Canada Post to P.O. Boxes. All other shipments are sent via Bookstore contracted couriers for tracking purposes. No exceptions. Posted rates are subject to change without notice. The BCIT Bookstore reserves the right to alter your shipping method in order to best expedite the shipping process and maintain our service standards.

If no one is available to accept the delivery, a notice is left with instructions on where the package can be picked up. Alternatively, you might consider shipping to your workplace, if possible.

Starting July 15, 2015 all pick-up orders will incur a $3.95 + 5% GST processing fee. The Bookstore is charged for each credit card transaction that is processed by the third party software used to fill our web orders. This has prompted the need to add this new processing fee.

Canada Post (P.O. boxes only)

Unfortunately, BCIT Bookstore cannot track shipping with Canada Post (P.O. boxes) as they are sent our via regular mail. Any shipments sent via Canada Post are the receiver's responsibility. If your shipment is lost, you will have to reorder and purchase again.
