us to canada

Anyone found away to have US items that cannot be shipped to Canada,shipped thru a 3rd party? My son needs running shoes made by Asics { 3-4 pairs per year},and they charge well over double here,than our US counterparts. Asics forbids those US retailers to ship to Canada!! Just putting it out there.Seems like something that must have cropped up for others living here in Canada. Thanks!

go on a road trip down there (vacation) and stay for a week i think it is and you can bring back a bunch of stuff without paying tax..

maybe a stupid question, but what would be so difficult about just getting someone in America to buy them and mail them to you?

Price of the shoes, shipping, plus 25 percent, Paypal up front, and I'll buy and ship them for you. If you like win-wins, you've found your 3rd party.

If you live close enough to the boarder to drive there and pick it up send it to,
The mail box, Lynden, WA.
They'll hold it for you til you pick it up. I have a po box there and ship stuff out regularly.

I live about 45min from MI border, there is a parcel company that receives basically anything smaller than a pallet (others accept pallet and larger items) costs $5 per package. Myself and about 3 others go there about once a month (actually going there saturday for parts). Check and see if there are any close to you, UPS will usually offer the same service. If not and you don't mind sending i basically across the country feel free to PM me about me getting them and mailing them from ON to you. I don't mind

I ship everything to the letter carrier in Pt. Roberts. http://www.thelettercarrier.com/

Great place to ship goods from the US, and not too far of a drive either. Don't forget to get gas while you're there!
