New pre-paid, flat-rate boxes simplify the process of sending parcels, for both consumers and businesses
Canada Post has introduced a convenient new postal product that makes shipping parcels anywhere in the country easier – our new prepaid flat-rate boxes. The new parcel boxes remove the need to search for packaging, to measure, or to calculate shipping rates. Simply put, if it fits, it ships.
Whether you’re a small business owner shipping online orders to customers, or a family member sending a gift cross-country to loved one, you just pack the flat-rate box without changing its dimensions and ensure its contents are secure to prevent any movement during transport.
The new boxes are available in three sizes – small, medium and large, ranging in price from $13.49 to $19.99. Each box allows you to ship up to 5 kg anywhere in Canada.
The price includes:
- On-time delivery guarantee
- Delivery confirmation
- Up to $100 of liability coverage for loss or damage
You can purchase a flat rate box in-store at one of 30 post office locations. While they are currently available for purchase only at select stores, the boxes can be sent from any post office across Canada. The smallest flat rate box can even be sent from any street letter box.
