Attention Hubbell-Wiegmann Enclosure Customers: The order deadline for same-day shipment of LTL (freight) orders is 3:00 pm ET. Small parcel orders ship until 4:00 pm ET.
Our offices will be closed on Monday, May 27th, in observance of Memorial Day
FedEx shipped orders placed before 6:00PM ET on Friday, May 24th will ship same day (if paid for by Credit Card or PO account in good standing & based on product availability). Orders placed after the Friday cutoff will ship on Tuesday, May 28th. Please see our Business Policies for earlier shipping cutoff times for drop-shipped items and shipping by other carriers.
AutomationDirect's new shipping policies for Canadian customers make it easier than
ever to order direct from the U.S.!
We offer fast free shipping* for most orders over $49 U.S., and that includes the brokerage fees (when using an AutomationDirect nominated broker).
By using our choice of carrier (typically air service), we can reach most Canadian destinations within 2 to 3 days. Plus, if you order by 6pm ET, in-stock orders will ship the same day!
All other shipping services (such as expedited and LTL items), and shipping on orders under $49, are calculated based on order weight.
*2-day free shipping does not apply to drop-ships, or orders requiring LTL transport, but LTL shipments can take advantage of our negotiated super-low flat rates (based on weight) that include brokerage fees. See below for LTL shipping information.
If you desire to use standard ground service shipping to Canada, you can choose to allow AutomationDirect to nominate a broker for your shipment. This can save on brokerage fees:
Orders $500 U.S. and under incur a flat $15 brokerage fee, plus applicable duties,
taxes and shipping charges
Orders from $500.01 to $1,600.00 U.S. incur a flat $27 brokerage fee, plus applicable duties, taxes and shipping charges
Orders over $1,600.00 U.S. incur a flat $60 brokerage fee, plus applicable duties,
taxes and shipping charges
When using the ground service option, all brokerage, duties, taxes and applicable shipping charges are calculated when you place your order, so there are no surprises when the shipment arrives. Note that choosing ground service will always incur shipping charges, regardless of order value.
Heavy items which require LTL shipping always incur shipping charges, however their value is used to calculate if the complete order is over $49 total, and only the weight of the LTL-required portion of a qualifying order will be used to calculate freight costs. We have negotiated super-low LTL flat rates that include brokerage fees.
Certain items cannot be brokered through AutomationDirect, including drop-ship items from any location other than our Cumming, GA warehouse and Hubbell.
