Shipping Policy - Updated January 1 2017

Dix Performance North provides free shipping on all products purchased from Dix Performance to destinations in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec. Please note that free shipping does not apply to dangerous goods and batteries.

This applies to all product of any size, weight or shape. Oversize freight charges have been eliminated. Inbound freight and brokerage charges on special order freight will still be quoted and applied on a case by case basis. We will continue to offer the $3.00 freight insurance on every order.

Shipping insurance covers you from loss or damage from the carrier regardless of dollar amount. Dix Performance will initiate all claims and tracing with the carrier and send out replacement parts as promptly as possible. We strongly encourage our business partners to take advantage of this very low cost option. Carriers charge a minimum 4% of the total product value for insurance. For example, carrier insurance for $1000 is $40; Dix only charges $3.00. If you decline insurance, loss or damage on the part of the carrier will not be covered by Dix Performance. Dix Performance will not accept any liability on shipments with declined insurance.

We will be implementing a handling fee of $9.86 per order regardless of dollar amount. Shipments to Atlantic Canada (including Newfoundland and Labrador) will be charged $15.00 for freight along with the $9.86 handling fee. Oversized parts to these locations will be quoted and applied on a case by case basis.

All orders shipping to the Northwest Territories, Yukon and Nunavut will be quoted and applied on a case by case basis or shipped collect at the request of the customer.

Accessorial charges incurred during delivery are the responsibility of the consignee, ie, appointment, redelivery, power tailgate, etc.
