Shipping Updates

The purpose of this page is to try and provide transparency and clarity around the status of your order and, specifically, when it can be shipped. 

We know we can provide transparency, but clarity is a bit tougher to deliver on because we have no control over the supply chain backlogs that are afflicting the entire world. 

With that in mind, our shipping estimate is intended to be a “worst-case-scenario”. But I must be honest and tell you that my last “worst-case-scenario” guess ended up being off by more than 30 days (I forgot to predict the Suez Canal blockage… darn!).  I don’t think our estimate will be that far out this time, but there are just so many things that are out of sorts right now in the current shipping environment.

We will update this page as new information becomes available. Thank you for your patience!

The shipment is still at the LA port with the container it is loaded in being flagged for inspection. It is most likely that this inspection delay is just a random check, but we are stuck waiting until it is done, regardless. 

ORDER SHIPPING ESTIMATE: Mid-July

Note: Pink and red blocks can be shipped immediately.

Canada

The shipment will arrive at our home on June 11. It will be repackaged for the fulfillment centre and sent off within 2-3 days. 

ORDER SHIPPING ESTIMATE: End of June/First week of July

Note: Pink blocks can be shipped immediately.

The shipment has arrived at the LA port and is “pending discharge from the vessel”. The container that the Bear Blocks are in was also randomly flagged for examination by the CET. 

We don’t really know how long this will take, but unloading and clearing customs is probably a 10-14 day process considering the backlogs at the LA port.

After the shipment clears customs it needs to be shipped to our warehouse and received. Because of shipping and receiving backlogs we could be looking at mid-July before we can ship out orders. 

ORDER SHIPPING ESTIMATE: Mid-July

Note: Pink and red blocks can be shipped immediately.

Canada

The shipment has arrived at the Vancouver port and should be unloaded and clear of customs by June 8. It will then take approximately 10 more days to arrive at the warehouse where it will be received into inventory. 

The receiving process can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, but lately it has been getting a bit faster so let’s cross our fingers!! 

ORDER SHIPPING ESTIMATE: End of June/First week of July

Note: Pink blocks can be shipped immediately.
