Contactless delivery is how we maintain physical distancing and minimize unnecessary contact between our Couriers and Customers when exchanging packages.
Contactless deliveries can happen outside or in a building. For instance, deliveries to residential homes will always be outside; however, for apartment buildings, business sites and retail stores, the pick-up or drop-off may occur inside the building, should an alternate arrangement not be possible.
All of our deliveries will feature some variation of contactless delivery where possible, whether it’s leaving a package on someone’s doorstep, meeting a resident outside their apartment building or going directly to someone’s unit and safely placing the order outside the customer’s door. You can indicate which option you would like for every order you place.
How do contactless deliveries work at Good Foot?
Prior to reaching a pick-up or drop-off address, the Courier will call the customer to make arrangements to meet outside the building or in the lobby area to exchange packages; this is our preferred option. In cases where this is not possible, such as the customer is self-isolating, has accessibility concerns or does not answer the call, the Courier will go to the address unit.
When at the unit, the Courier will announce their arrival by pressing the doorbell or knock on the door and will step back at a comfortable distance to maintain physical distancing. At the pick-up, we expect the customer to leave the package on a safe surface and step back. At the drop-off, the Courier will leave the package on a safe surface and step back. In either case, we require 2 meters of space to be created for a safe retrieval by the other party.
For a package that doesn’t require a recipient’s confirmation, our Courier will leave it outside the door or a secure spot as directed in the order form (such as behind a porch table/planter etc.).
Can a Courier pick up a package without meeting me?
Absolutely. Just let us know where you have left the package in the comments section of the order form. Useful information includes – any COVID-19 related restrictions in your building, details of the spot where the package may be left (e.g. behind porch table or planter), building buzz code. Our Couriers may call you if needed.
Can a Courier drop off a package to the recipient if they are not there?
Absolutely – this is currently our default delivery method unless otherwise specified in the comments. Please let us know your preference in the comments section of the order form. Useful information includes – any COVID-19 related restrictions in your building, details of the spot where the package can be dropped off (e.g. unit door, behind porch table or planter), building buzz code. We will also send you an email confirming delivery. Our Couriers may call you if needed.
How will I know if a package has been delivered successfully?
Upon delivery, important order details such as the location of delivery, time of delivery and recipient name (if requested) will be shared via a confirmation email. A photo will also be included to show where the order was left. If we are unable to deliver as per order preferences, our Customer Service team will call the customer to ask for next steps.
Can I request a signature for recipient acknowledgement?
We have temporarily suspended offering this service. However, under the comments section in the order form, you can request for recipient acknowledgment. Our Courier, while practicing physical distancing, will receive the recipient’s name and share it via the confirmation email.
Are there any changes to delivery rates?
Our delivery rates remain the same.
Are there any changes to delivery times?
A majority of our Basic and Express delivery options will have the same delivery time that our customers have come to expect. However, TTC restrictions and protocols for contactless service may adversely impact some deliveries, therefore we cannot guarantee our delivery times at this time. If running late, our Customer Service team will do their best to contact you to provide an update.
We operate primarily within Toronto, although we service parts of North York, Etobicoke and Scarborough. Our service area is typically 2.8 km from any TTC subway station.

Can I ship unpacked items? Do you supply packaging of shipping supplies such as envelopes or boxes?
At this time Good Foot Delivery does not offer shipping supplies. You are responsible for ensuring your orders are properly packaged.

What are your size specifications?
Please note, as our Couriers take transit to deliver orders, we are unfortunately limited with the size, weight and sometimes the types of items we can deliver.
We accept packages in varying sizes, however we cannot accept packages larger than a milk crate, at 12′ X 12′ X 12′, with some exceptions. If you have a package larger than this, please contact us directly before placing your order to see if we can accommodate your order. Additional fees may apply.
How large is too large of a package?
Good Foot Delivery accepts orders up to 8 lbs and no bigger than a milk crate, with some exceptions. If your package is larger or heavier than this, please contact us directly to see if we can accommodate your request. At times, we may ask that the order be split into multiple orders. This allows us to send more than one Courier to complete the order.
There will be additional overweight fees applied to your order if you fail to place more than 1 order for an over sized or over weight item, without prior approval.
How do I amend or cancel my delivery?
