Where do we Ship?

Our web purchasing is integrated with Purolator, so we can ship virtually to any residence or business in Canada.

How Much is Shipping?

Orders Over $99 Ship for Free!

To keep things easy and to avoid surprise extra costs, we don’t charge shipping or handling on orders over $99 (before tax and shipping calculation). There are a few reasonable exceptions like very large or heavy items as well as shipping to remote areas (see below for details).

Free Shipping Exceptions

(i) Very Large or Heavy items

This applies to less than 1% of our inventory and includes items like pianos, timpani, tubas and large gongs. This exception will be indicated when viewing the product page and at check-out. The shipping cost will be calculated and displayed upon check-out using the item’s size, weight and your ship-to address. In general, drum kits, guitars, bass amps and keyboards are not part of this exception and do ship for free on orders over $99.

(ii) Remote Delivery Addresses

Free shipping does not apply to “Beyond Point” postal codes as dictated by Purolator. This exception will be indicated at check-out. The shipping cost will be calculated and displayed upon check-out using the item’s size, weight and your ship-to address. Most Canadian residential and business addresses are included for free shipping, the exceptions are typically northern regions.

Shipping Charge for Orders Under $99

The shipping cost will be calculated and displayed upon check-out using the item’s size, weight and your ship-to address.

Can I pick up my Order in Store?

As an alternative to shipping you can choose to pick up your order in store. Typically the next business day you will be contacted by email to let you know your order is ready.

We have the largest in-stock offering in the country and only offer items for purchase that we know we can ship to you quickly. On the rare occasion where there is a quality issue or we have oversold our stock because of time delays in our processes, we will email you to confirm whether you wish to wait for the back ordered item, wish to purchase a similar item or would prefer a refund.

How to Track my Order?

The status of your order can be monitored on your Cosmo Music account page; simply log-in and choose to view your order. The order status will change as it is processed. You will also be notified of progress by:

  • a confirmation email after you first placed your order
  • an email to alert you that your order has been shipped (with a tracking number)

What if I'm not Home to Receive my Package?

To ensure safe and secure delivery of your shipment, a signature is required by Purolator when the delivery is received. If no one is available to accept the shipment a “Door Knocker” note will be left by the driver which will provide information on how to arrange another delivery attempt or where to pick up your shipment at your local Purolator depot. To comply with laws and to help protect the security of your package, be sure to bring to your local depot identification that includes a photo as well as name and address which matches the details you provided upon check-out (for example: driver’s licence, passport, credit card or bank statements with addresses). Typically Purolator will hold your shipment at their local depot for 4 business days after which it will be returned to us.
