When checking out, please make sure to include your postal code if you would like your product shipped. One of our friendly staff will be in touch to discuss your options to make sure we get you the absolute best deal.

Local Pickup

If you are ordering for local pick-up, please make sure to mention which branch you would like to visit. You will receive an email when your purchase is ready for pick-up – please do not attempt to pick up your order until you receive that email.

Online Shopping Fulfillment Terms

Fastek makes no guarantees that any particular product will be in stock in any location or warehouse at any given time. As a result, some products may take several days (or weeks) to arrive at our facilities before being available. If you place an order for local pickup, you will receive a notification when your order is ready; please wait for that notification before attempting to pick up your order. If your order is being shipped to you, please be advised that there may be some delays in shipping at this time. If you have concerns about how soon a product will be available to you, please call us toll-free at 1-800-570-2211 and speak to one of our friendly staff members.

Please note that we cannot guarantee shipping time estimates. At no point should a shipping time estimate be considered a guarantee.

Shipping & Delivery Terms

Our free shipping discount applies to domestic online orders only and is subject to change without notice. Your order must total at least $150 CAD before taxes at the time of shipping in order to qualify.

Any items that are considered oversized or heavy may need to be delivered via special freight carriers and may not be eligible for free shipping.

The free shipping discount may not be combined with any other offer or promotion except at our sole discretion, and does not apply to orders picked up in store. No equivalent discount will be applied to in-store or online orders that are not shipped.

If your order does not qualify for free shipping, the shipping charge will be based on the weight and measurements of the product(s) and the address to which it will be shipped.

Business to business shipping is often less expensive than shipping to a home address.

Fastek will not process any order without correct billing information and will not ship any order without a correct, confirmed shipping address. We reserve the right to cancel any order at any time without exception or penalty.

Delivery addresses cannot be changed once a purchase has been made. If you wish to change the delivery address after purchase, you must cancel your original order and process your order a second time. Please call the toll-free number to let us know there was an issue and we’ll help in any way we can.

Delivery and billing addresses may be required to match for transactions as per credit facilities terms. We reserve the right to cancel a transaction and refund the purchase amount for violating this or any other policy stipulated in these terms.

Most orders are shipped via UPS unless going to a Flex Delivery / PO Box via Canada Post. We reserve the right to change couriers if necessary. If a change needs to be made, you will be notified as there may be an adjustment in shipping cost.

Canada Post orders may not weigh more than 30kg.

Orders can be canceled at no charge to you until they are shipped.

Shipping fees are non-refundable.

Delivery times vary greatly and depend on a number of factors. During this time, we cannot guarantee any delivery dates and cannot be held responsible for any shipping delays.

Orders will be shipped via standard ground shipping unless otherwise specified.

Order processing can take up to 2 business days before being shipped out.

Orders may not be processed until the following business day; e.g. if you place an order on Friday, it may not be processed until the following Monday.

Your delivery may require a signature. If you are not home to receive your delivery, a notification card may be left with further instructions. Most deliveries will be attempted between 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday. Delivery times are up to the courier company and we cannot request any specific delivery time on your behalf.

We cannot guarantee all items in an order will be shipped together. In some cases, products may arrive separately due to size or other factors beyond our control.

If a package arrives open or the packaging is damaged, you have the right to ask the courier to return it at no extra charge. We ask that you contact us immediately so that we can send out a replacement shipment and/or look into the issue as soon as it occurs.

Be sure to report any item defects or damages to Fastek by telephone or email within 24 hours of attempted delivery.

Once you have accepted a delivery, any damage that has happened during shipping becomes your sole responsibility. You may choose to dispute this with the courier but Fastek cannot be held responsible for damages that occur once a product leaves our warehouse, and will not accept responsibility for any items accepted by the customer despite damages.

We are not responsible for delivery errors due to incorrect shipping information including, but not limited to: incorrect information provided by the customer; or mishandling by the courier. However, we will make every effort to help locate lost shipments on your behalf.

Returns

We at Fastek have always believed first and foremost in customer satisfaction – if something is wrong with your order, let us know and we’ll try to make it right.

In the event that this is not possible, contact us for an RMA (return merchandise authorization) number. Include a copy of your RMA in all packages being returned – if an RMA is not present, your shipment will not be accepted.

All returns will be credited back to the same payment method used at time of purchase, less shipping costs.

All original packaging must be included. For this reason, we recommend you keep all packaging and packing material for a minimum of two weeks.

No freight collect or COD items will be accepted.

Any items purchased in store must be returned with a receipt in a store within 30 days of purchase.

Fastek will accept the return of any product determined to be defective due to errors in manufacturing or workmanship within 30 days from the date of purchase. After 30 days, you may be directed to contact the manufacturer.

Merchandise ineligible for return, refund, or exchange includes all special order, liquidation, clearance, or other final sale items; cracked, altered, damaged, scratched, dented, and dirty items; certain items that are opened, such as packaged accessories, and gas powered tools; as well as coupons, gift cards, and store credit, among others.

If you wish to return a non-defective item, you may be responsible for all incurred shipping costs, and a 15% restocking fee may also apply. Additional fees may apply in the event of missing parts or accessories, instructions, warranty information, and/or packing material.

We reserve the right to request valid identification prior to accepting any returns, and may limit or refuse a return at any time, for any reason, without explanation.

Some products cannot be returned via courier due to safety regulations, such as products that use flammable liquids. These products must be returned in person at your nearest Fastek store.

An online return may take up to 3 days to inspect and clear for refund. We appreciate your patience.

Errors and Misprints

While Fastek strives to provide accurate information, unintentional errors may occur. We reserve the right to correct any omissions, mistakes, or inaccuracies relating to price, product information, and availability without restriction, at any time, without notice. We also reserve the right to cancel or refuse any order or purchase in full or in part, for any reason, at any time, without notice or explanation.

If a product available for purchase on our website is not as depicted when received, please return it to us promptly and unused for a full refund. Please refer to our disclaimer regarding product photography for more information.

All prices are subject to change without notice at any time.

Products are not guaranteed to be in stock at any given store at any time, and substitutions may occur when necessary, with prior notification.

Warranties

Warranty information is available on the corresponding manufacturer’s website or by email.

All warranties are provided in good faith, in relation to a specific product, whether expressed or implied, with respect to proper use of that product. Warranties do not cover misused, abused, altered, or modified products, or normal wear and tear. Please refer to the manufacturer’s warranty for more information.

If we determine a product to be defective in materials or workmanship, Fastek may replace or repair that product, at our discretion, at no charge to the customer. We do reserve the right to withhold replacement or repair until we’ve had a chance to inspect the product to our satisfaction.

Liability

We accept no liability and cannot be held responsible for any injuries, damages, or death arising from the use of any product purchased from Fastek, whether accidental or otherwise.

Backorders

We do our very best to avoid backorders, but they sometimes occur. If your order contains an item that is backordered, we will get in touch and advise you of the anticipated delivery date. You may, of course, cancel any backordered item at any time, before that item is shipped. You may also request that we hold your order until all items are available for shipping so that the order may be shipped at the same time. However, this does not guarantee that all parts of the order will arrive at the same time.

Freight charges will still apply to any backordered items considered heavy (such as individual items that weigh 30kg or more).

Taxes

Fastek Inc is required to charge the appropriate Federal and Provincial sales tax as dictated by law. If you have a Status Card that allows you to claim an exemption from sales tax, please get in touch so we can accommodate you at the time of your purchase.

Fastek COVID-19 Policies

At Fastek, the health and safety of our customers and staff is our highest priority. We are making every effort during this difficult time to maintain the quality of service you’ve come to expect from us, while also adhering to all government regulations and guidelines.

We are currently limiting the number of people in stores, with no more than 2 from a single crew. We’re asking that customers follow government mandated safety protocol, including sanitizing hands, keeping a minimum 6′ distance from staff and other customers, and remaining at home if you’ve developed a cough or other cold symptoms. We are also offering curbside service to those who prefer to order ahead.

Our repair shop is currently open and available to help you with any repairs or issues you may have. We have no estimate of the time a repair will take at this time.

As you are probably aware, shipping times are currently difficult to estimate, and we can make no guarantees regarding how soon a product will reach its destination. We will do our best to get your order out to you as quickly as possible, and we appreciate your patience at this time.

We are doing our best to make your shopping experience with us as convenient for you as possible. If you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns, please let us know.

Thank you.
