Delivery fee's can range from 11 per brick to a flat rate of 1000 bucks a month...delivered right to your home...you can order from BRINKS or Securcor?? itself..but you would have to set it up as an individual..and how many armored trucks pulling up at your front door do you want LOL

I doubt any small operation like that would have an interest in ordering bricks of money. Secondly, insurance risks would dictate the amount of cash on hand. Unless the bricks were ordered outside the scope of their needs, I seriously doubt that they would take the risk to order that much cash over and above their needs. Even banks today are now ordering just for their daily needs.

Hi all.

Working at TD Canada Trust, I see owners and/or operators of "cheque cashing places" come in on a regular basis.  They have accounts registered in the business name and conduct their banking accordingly.  This includes cash withdrawals, which I assume they use to supply thier daily needs.

Yours,

...So the BOC said to me that only financial institutions could order notes...
HAS the Bank of Canada stopped allowing the public to buy banknotes directly?  I've bought directly from the BofC before, the last time being when the $2 bills were discontinued.  I bought about 200-300 individual notes at a cost of $15 over face value.  But this was back in 1995/96, so I guess things could have changed.

We used to be able to walk up to the Bank of Canada on Sparks Street and they had a teller right there in the main lobby. They shut that down about 5 years ago :'(. You call them they say go to your bank  >:(. You go the your bank and they say go to the Bank of Canada  >:(. You just can't win. My bank always gets old bills and I have to be there at the right time when they get new bills, usually on freggin bundle of 100.

Out of curiosity how many bricks a week do you brick searchers go through? Do the banks set a limit on you? Do they mind taking back all the regular notes? I certainly seem to be starting to stir the pot at my branch.

For anyone in Calgary:

Try the customer service/cash offices at Co-op, we(I work there) always get brand new tens.
