Shipping & Pick Up

We do not deliver to PO Boxes.

You can pick up from any of our locations free of charge by selecting “pick up in-store” at checkout. The time between ordering and pick up is dependent on stock availability at the location you have chosen. It can take between 5 - 7 business days. You will be notified when your order is ready for pick up. Have your order confirmation email on hand when you are picking up your order.

NOTE: If orders are not collected and/or cancelled a 25% restocking fee may apply.

If no shipping cost is displayed at checkout, a Nella representative will contact you to discuss this after order completion. Payment will not be processed until you approve the shipping costs.

Orders are shipped from our Mississauga, Toronto or our Maple Ridge warehouses. We aim to ship your order within 5 - 7 business days. Due to an increase in volume and extra safety precautions, orders may take slightly longer to be dispatched. Heavy Equipment deliveries may take longer and a Nella representative will be in contact with you to organise a delivery date.

Please note that weekends and Canadian and Ontario provincial holidays* will increase lead time.

*National and regional holidays include New Year’s, Family Day, Good Friday, Victoria Day, Canada Day, Civic Holiday, Labour Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

If you do not have an elevated loading dock or forklift to unload your items from the truck, you will need a tailgate. You must specify this during checkout by indicating “Tailgate required” in the shipping instructions

A higher fee may apply if a tailgate must be added after an order has shipped. If delivery is unable to be completed because a tailgate was not specified during checkout, a redelivery fee may apply in addition to a tailgate fee. In these situations, we will contact you via email regarding the appropriate fees and charge the card on file if necessary to avoid additional fees with the carrier.

For residential deliveries, tailgates are generally required. We will let you know if it is this is the case.

If tailgate is required note that this will be a $75 fee.

If an item ordered is not in stock, a Nella representative will be in touch to suggest an equivalent item or let you know when the item will be available again.

We endeavour to send items in one complete shipment; however, delivery times may vary as we may need to transfer stock from one warehouse to another. This adds an additional 1 - 3 business days to delivery time.

Duties and taxes differ between Canadian provinces and will be displayed at checkout after the shipping address has been specified.

Unfortunately, we do not offer international shipping as a service.

When an item has to be ordered from the manufacturer and shipped to our warehouses as a custom order:

  • we are unable to cancel the order once placed,
  • it may not be eligible for exchange,
  • or a restocking fee may be applied if the order is cancelled.

Please see our returns policy for more details.

In the event that there is damage to the packaging or the item itself, please make note of this on the delivery receipt and take pictures. Check and notify us is there are missing or incorrect items in your order. We also ask that you retain your receipt and the original packaging and contact us within 24 hours so we can investigate. If these steps are not taken, we cannot guarantee that you will receive compensation for the damages.

For an extra fee, white glove delivery service is available. A delivery time that suits you will be scheduled where our delivery team unload, inspect and move the item to its final position. We will also remove any packaging and debris from the larger items. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic our 3rd courier partners may not be able to offer this white glove delivery service. A Nella representative will be in contact with you if this is the case.

Please ensure old units have been removed prior to the delivery team’s arrival. For local deliveries, nella offers an equipment removal service. Extra charges apply.

White glove delivery only includes affixing of casters and accessories and does not include connection to utility lines.

Nella Cutlery and Food Equipment delivers to residential addresses. Please note that the commercial equipment we stock is specifically designed with commercial use in mind and may not be suitable for residential purposes.

Free Freight is dock-to-dock delivery only and does not include tailgate delivery.

If you do not have an elevated loading dock or forklift to unload your items from the truck, a tailgate will be required and must be specified at checkout or advised prior to shipping. If tailgate is required there will be a charge of $75 + tax.

In the case where a delivery is unable to be completed and/or a tailgate was not specified, a redelivery fee may apply in addition to a tailgate fee.
