Frequently Asked Questions
Who uses Hitchmail?
Hitchmail is perfect for individuals or businesses who want a lower cost alternative for shipping small parcels between major Canadian cities. Our customers also value the added security and convenience of our improved tracking and delivery methods.
What sort of things can I ship with Hitchmail?
You can use Hitchmail to ship all types of regular goods as long as the parcel does not exceed our maximum size of 20″L x 13″w x 10″h (50.8 x 33.02 x 25.4 cm.) or the maximum weight of 30lb (14 kg). Please note that we do not allow parcels containing liquids, perishable goods or any dangerous substances classified under MSDS.
Does Hitchmail have any insurance on parcels?
Yes, Hitchmail parcels can be insured to a maximum of $100 per parcel.
How do your shipping costs compare to other shipping companies like Canada Post or Purolator?
Hitchmail is usually less expensive than other shipping companies and this is because our trailers are towed between cities by private vehicles that are already making the trip. This dramatically reduces costs and these savings are passed onto YOU the customer.
How is Hitchmail tracking better than Canada Post or Fedex tracking?
Hitchmail provides superior tracking that allows you to log into a virtual map and see the real time location of your parcel at all times.
Where do you operate?
Hitchmail is currently shipping between Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina and Winnipeg.
I don't live in a major city, can I still use Hitchmail?
Hitchmail only delivers within the city limits of select Canadian cities. The Hitchmail savings can be substantial so if you know someone with a home or business in these cities, consider having items picked up or delivered from there.
Is Hitchmail environmentally responsible?
Very much so.
We use crowdsourced drivers who commute between cities for school, work or traveling for any other reason.
Since we are harnessing the unused towing capacity of vehicles already going from point A to B, our freight delivery system reduces the carbon footprint by approximately 70%.
