Canada Program - the Best Deal on the Web
It's all in the name - CanadaLightingExperts is completely dedicated to our Canadian Customers. Although we are a US based company, we do everything we can to ensure our Canadian customers can quickly get their sought after products at unbeatable
prices in a hassle-free manner.
We offer unrivaled prices because we pay for all of the Duties, Taxes, and Brokerage fees on your purchase - this gives you access to U.S. goods at prices up to 30% below what you may pay locally.
Still not sure? We have a fully staffed Customer Service team who are ready and available to take your calls and answer your questions.
- How does it work?
After the order is placed, we will process your order and the product will be exported into Canada from our US-based warehouses. We process all of the paperwork, pay the appropriate parties, and notify you along the way of the status of
your order. Also note that you may receive two tracking emails: one from our warehouse to the Transship Border Facility and a second one from that station to your door!
- Are you located in Canada?
We are a US-based company and as such, we do not have a physical presence in Canada. Our parent company, 1StopLighting.com, had a large Canadian Customer base, which led us to start CanadaLightingExperts back in 2007. Creating this site
allowed us to structure it just for our Canadian Customers. While we may not be Canadian, we value our Canadian customers very much and try to provide a hassle-free shopping experience. Our office is located at:
Belami, Inc. - dba www.1stoplighting.com
1333 Howe Avenue
Sacramento, CA 95825.
- Do you charge in Canadian (CAD) or US dollars (USD)?
All listed prices are in USD.
We are a US based e-retailer who has mastered how to get US lighting brands to Canadian consumers. We charge in USD because that allows us to pass on the best overall price to you. Rather than increase our costs by setting up complex banking systems to convert currency we focus our time and money on how to get the best US lighting brands to you faster and cheaper than anyone else. That is why we focus on one low USD price that is the same price the US consumers pay and we provide that price with no shipping charges and no additional fees for broker, duties or other taxes.
Our payment processor will apply the appropriate currency conversion at time of purchase. You may incur a small foreign transaction fee. We are not responsible for any of these charges or timing differences that your bank may charge you for any transaction, refund or credit. If you have any questions about your exchange rate or credit card fees please contact your credit card company or bank for more details
- Do you ship to all Canadian provinces?
We ship to most Canadian provinces. The only exceptions are: Yukon, Nunavut, and the Northwest Territories. The map below shows (in red) all of the provinces we currently ship to.
- What if I want to return what I ordered?
Most products you purchase are returnable as long as you notify us within 30 days and items have not been installed or altered. While we pay for all of the duties, fees, taxes, for your order and delivery, you will be responsible for getting
the product back to us. For more information about our return policy, go here.
- Can you ship my order USPS?
At this time, we are unable to ship orders via USPS. We ship UPS, FedEx, Purolator, or Freight depending on what is the safest and best method for your order.
- What if I order from a line not participating in your Canada Program?
Lines that are not participating in our Canada Program will require you to pay Duty, Brokerage, and Taxes to clear customs. You may need to arrange for a Broker once the order reaches the border.
