What are the boundaries for Core services?

Core stands for downtown core, and includes much of the commercial core in Calgary. Core or C-services are only used where the pick up location and delivery location are within the core area. 

 The boundaries for the core area are:

Out of Core is anywhere outside Calgary's downtown commercial core, but still within Calgary's city limits. Out of Core or O-Services are used whenever the pick up location or delivery location are outside of the downtown core but within city limits.

Delivery Q's:

What if my package can't be delivered?

If your package can't be delivered for any reason we will always keep your package and give you a phone call for more delivery instructions, unless you have already requested otherwise. 

You may also choose to have your package left at the delivery location (no signature required), or if you would like us to reattempt delivery. If you have any special instructions for our drivers you can include them in the "instructions" box on the order entry page.

How do I know my package has been delivered?

You can always view the status of your package online under the "Order Status" tab. Order Status is located in the second column beside the unique Order ID assigned to your delivery. Once delivered, the Order Status will read 'Delivered' and the background of the row will be shown in green. Trips that haven't been delivered yet have a grey background.

How can I request that a package be left without a signature?

If you don't require a signature upon delivery, or would like us to leave the package in the mailbox you can include these instructions in the "instruction" box when placing an order.

  • NSR is shorthand for No Signature Required.

  • MB OK is shorthand for mailbox okay upon delivery.

Once selected you will need to enter an email address for us to send our proof of delivery to. You will receive an email automatically as soon as your trip is completed.
