Shipping a dress from Canada

Hi everyone! Just wondering if anyone has any experience on the best way to ship your dress (assuming someone buys it through this site) from Canada? For the record, my dress is a big poofy ballgown, and I guess my concern is that I'm going to need HUGE box in order to ship it and the shipping costs will be very high! I know that the buyer is supposed to pay for the shipping, but I don't really understand how you can estimate the shipping cost for them before you have already packaged it up and shipped it, and I would hate for the buyer to be super excited about buying my dress and then have to deal with a ton of extra shipping costs!

TIA!

Hi Stephanie

Parcels are charged by weight, or cubic weight, whichever is greater. Cubic weight is measured using the size of the box, so even if the dress is light you will be charged a fortune for a huge box.

Great service! Haven’t received dress yet, but the process was simple.

I had a lovely time browsing the site and each of the sellers I chatted with before making my decision was quick to answer all my questions. My dress arrived as advertised with no issues at the post office, but having the insurance should anything have gone wrong was a great comfort. Will definitely recommend this site in the future to other brides, and potentially resell my own dress here too!
