Updated Shipping Rates

We would like to advise that after 5 years with no rate or policy changes as it relates to the shipping of our products, we have revisited and adjusted our shipping rates and policies.  We have found that after reviewing all of our shipping rates we have absorbed 2 Postal Increases, as well as 3 increases by FedEx.  We do understand that shipping is a cost and when we reviewed all of our policies, we wanted to take the extra time to make our shipping more fair, and easy to navigate no matter where you are located.

All of our shipping rates are clearly posted on the How it Works page of our website and will be reviewed January and July of every year going forward.

 

What changes have actually been made?  We will explain here our main changes for you.

 

Previously all of our products were categorized into 4 different shipping classes and if a client purchased one item of each class, the shipping rates would be added together.  NOW, we have reduced the shipping categories to 1!.  This will lower many of our clients shipping costs with this change.  It will now allow you (our client) to purchase cross category without the added expense of additional shipping charges on your orders. (This is the most significant change and will save many clients substantially)

We want to say that our Base Canadian Postal Mail rates are unchanged.  United States Postal Mail orders have a very slight increase due to the policies being enforced at the customs border for envelopes with keys within them.  We have changed that ONLY orders of 30 or less keys and or key blanks will be allowed to have a Postal Mail option.

Also, all key orders above 30 keys and ANY product will only ship FedEx ground, or Priority shipping by Canada Post to ensure all outbound orders can be tracked. (this policy has not changed)

Here in Canada, we have broken the shipping rates for our FedEx shipping into several different groupings based on your Provincial location.  British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Atlantic Canada, and The Northern Canadian Territories.  This only applies to the FedEx rates.

We have allowed FREE shipping on all orders OVER $400.00 in all locations in both Canada and the United States.  The only exception is Free Shipping is not offered in the Northern Canadian Territories.  So to further save on shipping, make sure your order is over $400.00 (you need to choose this option if it available to you in your shipping options)

For clients who want to use their own FedEx ground account, the option is available.  Just follow the prompts and place your account number in the field upon the checkout screen.  We do charge a convenience fee to cover our processing time, but we have also reduced it from $3.50 to $2.99 per order.  If you prefer to save on shipping by using your own FedEx account we most certainly encourage you to do so as we make it easy for you.

Our shopping cart will automatically adjust the shipping rates based on both your location as well as the cart contents.

We thank you for your continued business and support as we most certainly appreciate your business and look forward to being of service for the years to come!

Cheers!

Real Estate Service Providers (Jan 2017)

 

Are you a Real Estate Provider, facility professional, that manage multiple facilities for your clients?  We want to keep you informed on our services and how we can help you.  Are you with Brookfield GIS, CBRE, JLL, and Sodexo or any other for that matter?  If so, please have a read. We have worked with all of you in one way or another. On specific client accounts.  So why not consider our service for some of your other client portfolios.

As you are aware, and we can prove that we are the best most efficient means of providing for the routine replacement keys of office furniture.  All standard requests for code keys for ANY of the major manufacturers of office furniture will ship the following business day, no matter the quantity…GUARANTEED!  We are also able to create a custom service program to fit both yours and your client requirements.  You can consider us as your very own internal code key lock shop.   We are able to support and create national programs both within Canada and the United States.  Are you looking to look better for your client and put a program together that will make you look like an angel for your client?  We would certainly love to partner with you as we have the answer!.. OfficeKeys.ca is able to quickly modify any of our service policies to suit any of your requirements.

We do know that some of you have your own service technicians.  We are most certainly able to fully support their requirements and work with them.  OfficeKeys.ca does not provide on-site repair service of any kind, and can be a great resource for your service technicians.  Whether it be to help them with advice, or help in diagnosing a problem to supplying the replacement lock cores and providing them with cut code keys to help them complete their service request quickly and efficiently.   Provide your techs with our contact information and we would be glad to be of service.  You will find that they will appreciate our service.  They can contact us at 416-936-5804, or info@officekeys.ca.  Your technicians can always search our website to look for Office Furniture Lock service parts that are available for quick purchase.  We are more than just replacement keys for Office Furniture, we can provide for Padlocks, Key Blanks, Key Machines, Key Cabinets, Electronic furniture locks, and Key accessories.  We are distributors for some great product manufacturers.

Why pay for outside vendors to cut replacement furniture keys? Your outside Vendors charge you their labour charge in addition to the cut key costs. We can guarantee quick turnaround times and this is all we do, so we are very efficient at it. Your outside vendors do on site service and can’t concentrate solely on facilitating these requests efficiently as they have other priorities like being on site for your repairs.  We guarantee your orders will ship the following business day.  100% guarantee for replacement keys.  We excel in our specialized service.  We generally complete requests for keys within hours of us receiving the order.  Our pricing for keys INCLUDE labour, and packaging and administrative costs.  We even have some great suggestions on how to save even further on shipping costs when controlled on a national basis.

Please give us a call and let us know how we can create an ongoing mutually beneficial business partnership together.  Let us know how maybe we can set up a trial program for a couple of select locations in order for you to try our service and we can prove our value to you.  We make the annoying issue of replacement keys….

Why OfficeKeys.ca?

place-holder

 

Why Use OfficeKeys.ca??

We offer a unique way for Government, Corporations, Businesses and just about anyone who has Office Furniture to deal with the ongoing requirement of getting replacement keys for their Office Furniture in a quick, easy and cost effective, environmentally friendly manner. We can address each of these areas quite simply.

Quick

All requests/orders for standard replacement keys are cut the same day we receive the request. (For orders placed before 2:00 PM Toronto time. We guarantee that for all the major Office Furniture Manufacturers products and that these keys will ship the following business day! For all established accounts and paid internet orders. Why wait for longer turnaround times for a simple thing of lost keys from your Furniture Supplier or Locksmith? We act on your order same day!  Usually your Furniture supplier has no clue as to the specifics of the locking systems or keys.  They are more focussed on selling you more furniture.

Easy

We make the process to place an order very easy. We are the ONLY internet based company in Canada that provides a complete SECURE e-commerce solution for you to be able to place orders and requests for replacement Office Furniture keys 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Our website is very EASY to navigate and easy to find information. When in doubt, just drop us an email to info@officekeys.ca and we will respond to your inquiry promptly.

Cost Effective

We are a very cost effective alternative to you being able to get replacement keys for ANY of the major Office Furniture Manufacturers products. We are adding information on some of the smaller regional players as we try to become your ONE STOP source for all of your requirements. We are also consistently adding new products to our site that we feel would benefit you. If there is something that you can’t find on our site that you want us to carry, or not sure if we carry it, please drop us an email at info@officekeys.ca and we will do our best to help you find what it is you are looking for.

Consider us as your business partner, and your Code Key shop to be able to provide for the replacement of keys. We do know and understand that you have your own vendors and service companies to provide for on-site service for repairs and maintenance, and that is great! We do not offer on-site service of any kind, but we can support and supply your service personnel with the keys and lock parts that they require. We will keep your costing consistent no matter where you are located. If there is a lock your vendor, or service personnel that they can’t work with, just have them simply send it to us and we will key and service it and ship it back to your personnel for installation. We are highly specialized in our Office Furniture Lock service. When you have us cut keys for you, we cut them on a computerized code machine thus ensuring that the keys are cut on the correct blank, as well as ensuring the accuracy of the cuts of the keys so that the keys work smoothly in the lock that they are intended. Since you really don’t need to pay for labour and service charges for your vendor to come in and cut the keys for you, we will obviously save you those costs. We do not charge labour to cut keys. Our labour costs are included in the cost of the key. By eliminating these costs to your organization, you are saving substantially. Of course if you have a faulty lock… call in your service company to do the repair. Since we are internet based we can ensure that your keys will cost you the same in British Columbia, Ontario, or the Maritimes, and even the United States. Why pay more when you don’t need to?  By using OfficeKeys.ca your key costs remain constant when you manage multiple facilities. There are so many ways we are saving your organization time and money which in turn makes us a very cost effective and value added service for you.

We have custom billing capabilities for those larger institutions to allow us to better fit with your current process solutions, and we have the ability to invoice to your requirements on approved accounts.

Environmentally Friendly

Where we are friendly to the environment is when you use us to provide for replacement keys instead of paying for a service company to come in and provide the service. Since, there is no service personnel that visit your site, there are no fuel charges, waiting time, parking tickets, parking expenses, wasted staff time from business watching and dealing with service personnel. We either use Canada Post for Mail, and FedEx for courier shipments. You probably already get a delivery from each of these sources daily, so we are sharing the environmental footprint.

Also if you are an American client, please note our pricing on our website is in Canadian dollars, so it is just like you getting a 30% discount without having to do anything. Currently $1.00 CDN is approximately $ 0.70 USD depending on the currency exchange rate.  We now show on all of our product pages the US Dollar equivalent of our Canadian Pricing to make it clearer for your to compare.

In 2016 we added Solar panels to our facility, so now a minimum of 50% of our electricity requirements for our service are provided by our newly installed solar panels!

We work with all End Users, Facility Personnel, Office Furniture Dealers, Office Furniture Installation Companies, Office Furniture Brokers, and Locksmiths, generally anyone who works on, with or around Office Furniture.

We are distributors for:

Capitol Industries

CCL Security Products
