OTHER INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS
Orders may take up to two business days to be filled, but we typically process them same-day if the order is placed before 2 pm MST on weekdays (excluding holidays). As soon as we ship your order, you will receive an automated email with your tracking number.

Despite Rub 'n Restore® being an "arts and crafts" item made in the USA and registered with NAFTA, the Canadian government levies duties and taxes. We encourage Canadian customers to check with the Canada Border Services Agency to determine what duties and taxes will be assessed. Rub 'n Restore®, Inc. is not responsible for these duties or taxes.
If you opted for free shipping (Canada Standard), UPS assumes power-of-attorney for individual buyers (not businesses). This means they assess you a brokerage fee for doing what you can do yourself at your local CBSA (Canada Border Services Agency) office. These brokerage fees are included with all express/expedited shipments. For orders under C$200, there is a flat-rate brokerage fee of $10 for individual buyers.
You can avoid the brokerage fee if you contact UPS, give them the tracking number, and say you choose to clear the goods yourself with CBSA, thereby refusing their accounting/brokering services. When you visit your local CBSA office, be sure to provide them with specific details, including the courier (UPS), the tracking number, and a description of the goods and their value, so they can correctly assess the goods. This information is usually indicated on the shipment’s invoice, which will be provided to you by UPS. When you have paid the any applicable duties and/or taxes, you will be given an official receipt from CBSA demonstrating that the goods have been accounted for. Present this receipt to UPS at the warehouse where your shipment is stored (usually not far from the CBSA office), and your package will be released to you.
OTHER INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS
Customers outside North America should expect to pay US$75-$110 in shipping, not including government taxes. Even so, our international customers find this expense to be well worth the final result and ultimately less costly than reupholstery or replacement.

Rub 'n Restore® is considered an "arts and crafts" item, which is not taxed by many countries, but we encourage all international customers to check with your country's customs office to determine if any additional duties or tariffs will be levied. Rub 'n Restore, Inc. is not responsible for any of these duties or taxes.
