Shipping Information

For most of the items on Caribou Antiques we use USPS for shipping.  This is mainly because the insurance policies associated with USPS have less fine print when compared to FedEx or UPS.  Some items may need different shipping methods for particular circumstances (very fragile, irregular size, ect) and this will specified in the items page.

If you find an item you are interested in and there are is a specific shipping method you require, please send us an email describing the situation and we will work with you to make sure your shipping requirement is fulfilled.

Note: All items shipped will include insurance costs because there are not any others known or they are extremely hard to find.
