Items are generally shipped using Canada Post, although alternative shipping methods can be used at the buyers request. All large items are shipped fully insured but not necessarily traceable. Items such as decal sheets, photo etch sets, and small Transformers/Star Wars Parts are usually sent Lettermail in order to keep costs down but are not insurable. If insurance is required then those items would need to be shipped using an insured method.
No orders will ship out until the payment arrives.
Most orders within Canada are shipped using Expedited Parcel, which takes up to 7 business days and comes fully insured and trackable. Something to remember when ordering, anything that needs to be boxed up for shipping within Canada will have a minimum charge of $10.00, I know it sucks but that’s the way Canada Post works. Please note that the maximum shipping I charge within Canada is $15.00 (for orders shipped in one box, through Canada Post) no matter how much you buy. So if you are ordering it pays to order more than one item at a time. If you order has to be packaged in separate boxes or the box is too large for Canada Post to accept then the maximum shipping fee does not apply.
Local Pickups are available for customers in Edmonton, Alberta and Fort McMurray, Alberta, however this will need to be arranged.

We are required to fill out customs forms on orders leaving Canada. These forms will be marked with the order subtotal amount (price of items without the shipping fees). We know that taxes on packages can be expensive, but we WILL NOT misrepresent package contents for anybody anywhere.
Lost Payments or Packages
It is extremely unfortunate when this happens. It is VERY rare, but it can occur. JTR Hobby assumes absolutely no responsiblity for losses. If we do not receive a payment or if an uninsured package shipped to us, or by us, does not arrive at the proper destination, it is completely at the customer's expense. We highly recommend that insurance be used for any purchase/payment that you cannot afford to lose.
