Rufus Drum Shop realizes that not everyone is able to come into our physical store and check out all the fantastic items in stock so we are happy to offer shipping services to get these great instruments into your hands! With over 5000 shipments to date you can trust in us!

We ship within Canada using Canada Post for small packages and PO boxes, CANPAR for larger items and UPS for items valued over $5000. All items ship fully insured with tracking. A tracking number will be provided by email once your order is complete. We ship most orders in 1 business day. We use the utmost care to package items as good or better than when they came to us from the manufacturer.
