Delivery Time

Each product page displays "ships within" information. This is the estimated time (actual time may vary) from order placement until the product is dispatched from our warehouse located in Illinois, United States. The time from dispatch to delivery is usually between 2-4 weeks. For time sensitive deliveries please reach out to our customer team on
If you placed an order for products with different dispatch times the full order will be held until your entire order is ready to be shipped.

Please note that during promotional campaigns, delivery times may be slightly longer due to high volume.

Shipping rates

At Hem, we are all about transparency and creating as smooth experience as possible for our clients. Our products ship from the U.S. to Canada and we make sure you don’t have to deal with any of the common pains related to cross-boarder purchases. We factor in all relevant taxes and duties at checkout so you don't have to worry about any unforeseen charges later on.

The shipping rate for your order is determined by a goods & services tax, provincial sales tax, and the size and weight of the items in your cart. The final shipping cost will be displayed at checkout.

Standard Delivery Services

Hem schedules shipments with the contact details provided at checkout (email, phone number and delivery address). Always make sure the information provided at checkout is correct to avoid unnecessary delays for your delivery. 


Parcels are delivered by Fedex. We ask you to monitor your shipment via the tracking information that is sent out to you. If you are not at home at the time of delivery, the carrier may leave your package at your door. Please note, once delivered, Hem does not take responsibility for orders that are lost or stolen.


If your shipment includes freight items, our partner Mainfreight will deliver your order. Unless otherwise selected, your order will be shipped standard curbside delivery.

Standard curbside delivery means that the carrier will deliver your item(s) to the curb of your specified delivery address. This service does not include inside delivery, removal of packaging, assembly or setup of your item(s).

Mainfreight will call you 24 hours in advance of delivery to arrange a specified delivery window. Once scheduled, if you are not available at the set time of delivery, your order will be subject to a redelivery fee of $150. The cost for re-delivery must be paid in advance.

Please note, standard freight delivery is made on a pallet. This pallet will be left with the delivery.

For freight deliveries Mainfreight Transport requires curbside access to the delivery address that will accommodate a 26 ft straight truck. Please notify us in advance if your address requires a smaller vehicle or has other access restrictions. In some cases this may result in an additional delivery fee. If you have any questions or would like to receive a quote in advance please reach out to:


Cancellation & Order Edits

As soon as an order is received we prepare it for shipping (unless a later delivery date was requested). This results in a small window where changes to an order can be made.
