Q. Where do you ship/deliver meats to?
A. Slipacoff’s Premium Meats ships quality beef, pork, poultry, and other products from our Ottawa butchery to locations across Ontario and Quebec for any order of over $250. From Toronto to Trois Rivieres, Manitoulin Island to Montreal, and everywhere in between, we make ordering meat online easy for over 20 million Canadians.
Q. I’m located in the Ottawa/Gatineau area; do you charge for delivery here?
A. We’re located in Ottawa, too! That’s why it is our pleasure to deliver meat to the Ottawa & Gatineau urban core without additional charge for all orders over $250 (rural areas of Ottawa/Gatineau carry a $15 delivery fee). Should your desired delivery address be further, fees will vary. If you happen to be in our area (1620 Laperriere Ave in Ottawa, near Kirkwood & the Queensway, we also offer curbside meat pickup for orders placed online above $75 (see below).
Q. How is the meat shipped?
A. For local deliveries of meat in the Ottawa/Gatineau area, we use our Slipacoff’s Premium Meats trucks. For all other orders or meat delivery in Quebec and Ontario, we ship via FedEx or Purolator next-day delivery.
Q. What kind of packaging is used to ship the meat? Is it safe?
A. We’ve gone through an extensive research and testing process to determine the best packing and shipping methods for meat delivery. Soon after processing your online meat order at Slipacoff’s Premium Meats, we pack your beef, pork, poultry and/or other products in special cardboard boxes that have an insulated bag inside the box. Into that bag we place multiple ice packs to help keep the meat chilled at proper temperatures so that it arrives at your home or desired destination ready to eat or chill straight away.
Q. How long will it take to receive my meat delivery order?
A. Popular question! Depending on when your order is placed and where it is going, your meat delivery will often arrive on the same day; otherwise, it will be delivered the next business day (can take up to two days, depending on time and day of the week; we pack enough ice in an insulated box to help ensure smooth travels and safe, great eating!).
