Please read the following information carefully and note that all equipment you’re returning to us needs to be in good working order.

Step 1: Pack up your equipment for return

  1. Put the Cogeco equipment and accessories in a box.
  2. Pack them carefully using newspaper or another packing material to fill in the empty spaces.
  3. Seal the box with packing tape.

Step 2: Take it to a Canada Post outlet

  1. Go to any Canada Post outlet. To locate your nearest Canada Post location, visit canadapost.ca.
  2. Provide the following Return ID number to the Canada Post employee: PR489756.

We recommend that you make a note of the Canada Post tracking number for tracking purposes.

Good to know:

  • If you’re cancelling your services, you must let Cogeco know by email or phone before returning your equipment. If you haven’t already contacted us about cancelling, please call our Customer Service department before sending your equipment back to us (see Residential or Business contacts).
  • For Business customers cancelling services: Some of your equipment may be picked up by the Cogeco technician while completing the disconnection. We'll advise you when cancelling if any equipment needs to be returned separately.
  • For Ontario customers cancelling services: If we haven’t received your equipment within 21 days of the cancellation, a charge of between $125 and $400 per piece of equipment will be applied to your account, depending on the cost of the hardware. To avoid unnecessary charges, please return your equipment promptly after you have let us know that you’re cancelling.
