    Does it cost more to ship something to Canada, just because its going to Canada? I sold something to a guy there and we agreed on a price shipped before I realized he was from there. I want to make sure I am not gonna get ripped on shipping.

    Would someone please hook Josh up with that Candian Postal service web site that provides shipping cost estimates for international shipping between the US and future states of U.S.N.A.?

    :rolleyes:

    it depends on what you ship. if you shipped a pink pantied frisbee wearing lexus lover with a napolean complex up here, I think they would levy a hefty surcharge at the border and return it postage due.

    Not sure if he is close to a border, but perhaps you could arrange to ship it to a border store for them. He could drive over and get them .. saves brokerage fees.

    do NOT ship UPS! they will charge a large amount in brokerage. Go with USPS and the charges are not that bad. Get his addy and then I think you can get a rate based on the weight of the package through the USPS website. But it does cost more to Canada, due to customs.

    Naw -- I've been shipped up there before. You just have to lick lots of stamps and stick 'em to the outside of the box to make sure I get through :flipoff2:

    Things I have learned from having items shipped to the Great White North.

    4. Never ship UPS, Fedex, or Puralator. They have a hefty customs charge ($20), always always use US mail.

    3. You only have to pay GST and maybe duty for non-NA products. The above shipper's make you pay PST too.

    2. If you mark the package as "Used Parts" or "Warranty Replacement" you speed through customs, don't have to pay any tax or duty.










    1. Always ship to your brother in-law in Kentucky and have him bring the parts with him when he comes home to Canada. ;p
