Frequently Asked Questions

All shipping fees are the responsibility of the sender. Practitioners are required to pay the shipping costs to our lab and in turn we pay the shipping cost to send the finished orthotics to the practitioner. Accounts with an established volume of 40 pairs or more per month will receive free shipping both ways from Chinook Orthotic Laboratory. The cost of shipping orthotics to the lab for adjustments, recovering or to be rebuilt is always the responsibility of the practitioner regardless of their volume, unless it is included in a shipment of new casts.

Chinook Orthotic Laboratory uses 5 Star courier service within Calgary for same day shipping. Please call for the best option in your area, outside of Calgary.

What about warranty?

Chinook offers reduced pricing for repeat orders. The orthotic may be the same or a different style as long as we reuse the 3D scan data from the original casts. If new casts are submitted then regular new pair pricing applies. We store all digital cast images and CAD/CAM cutting files for 2 years from the date the orthotics are shipped. Physical casts are not saved after the orthotics completion date but can be returned with the completed orthotic upon request.

What about a second set of orthotics?
