Shipping & Returns

Death by Modernism will ship products to any address in the Continental United States or Canada. However, shipment to a P.O. Box will be refused.

All our pricing includes FREE shipping on orders above $1,000 (before taxes) within the Continental United States and Canada (except for commercial orders and bulky orders).

Delivery charges are added to the cost of the product if the total order (before taxes) is less than $1,000. In Canada, we charge a flat $29 delivery fee for orders below $1,000 (before taxes), and a flat $49 delivery fee for clients in the Continental United States.

We pay a premium to leading furniture delivery companies to ensure the best service possible. All shipping costs are inclusive of insurance.

Products are shipped from our warehouses located in Montreal, Canada. Foreign orders may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once a shipment reaches its destination country. You must check with your local authorities to find out what charges are applicable. Death by Modernism does not charge or collect duties or taxes for goods shipped to international destinations (outside of Canada). These taxes are paid by the customer upon arrival of the items to their destination country.

We believe your purchase deserves a special degree of handling and care. We use leading furniture delivery companies to handle our orders including VA Transport, Midland Courier, or Western Logistics — each one selected depending on the final destination, weight, and size of the products.

We use specialized furniture delivery companies because we do not want your bulky or fragile product to be delivered in front of your door without any other services. We prefer paying more (at our own expense) and offering the best service possible as these companies generally take extra care throughout the entire process. We may use FedEx Ground, but only for very lightweight items.

The carrier will call you to schedule a time for the delivery, either in the morning or in the afternoon, but not at an exact time. Death by Modernism is not responsible for the delivery times of products. Once products have been dispatched, it is the customer's responsibility to liaise with Death by Modernism's nominated carrier company in relation to date of delivery and to make themselves available to take delivery during the agreed upon time slot.

If, for any reason, our shipping partner cannot reach you at the agreed time of delivery, you will need to rearrange the delivery. We are not responsible for any additional delivery costs incurred.

Upon delivery, you will be asked to sign a delivery form, in which you confirm that the product was delivered in the correct condition (without obvious defects or damage).

It is your responsibility to inspect all items at the time of delivery, and any claims should be made within 24 hours.

Our policy is to keep you informed. When your order is dispatched, we will contact you by email with the relevant tracking information so you can keep a close eye on your delivery. You will also receive a call from one of our professional furniture carriers to confirm a suitable time for delivery. 

If your shipping address is a ‘beyond point’, then a surcharge may apply. Beyond point surcharge is calculated by the shipping companies. Beyond points are usually defined by difficult access points, narrow roads, gated communities, islands, rural areas or mountains. There is no way for us to ascertain a ‘beyond point’ until we get shipping quotes from our shipper. We will contact you if your shipping address comes up as a ‘beyond point’.

If you wish to change the address or any other delivery details before the indicated delivery date, you must send an email to to notify us  at least 48 hours prior to delivery. In this notification, please mention the order number and the relevant product.
