    DO NOT USE UPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You will pay so much money in brokerage fees it is horrible. On my icon shocks and tc ucas, I paid over $300 just in brokerage fees. Such a rip off. If you can, ship via usps or ship to a border town and go and pickup.

    $300 just for brokerage?? Wouldn't that include taxes??

    I thought that the brokerage fee was for the paperwork and it's usually around $30.00 so you would have to pay UPS $30 plus the taxes?

    Perhaps you could call UPS and tell them what you are ordering, how much it is, etc. and they could tell you what fees to expect.

    Cheers.

    UPS also has an "extended area surchange: for areas not in large major cities that they will somtimes hit you with in Canada, up to $20 I beleive.

    Also you can always call UPS and ask what fees are involved.

    Yep - UPS sux. In fact, I refuse to use them or buy from a merchant who is only willing to ship via USPS. My most recent purchase (arctic bull bar) is coming via FedEx and is arriving on Friday - I'll let you know what the fees are once I have them in hand.

    What about USPS or DHL shipping?

    I'd go USPS, you'll have to pay the tax whether it's UPS or USPS... I'm not aware of any toytec dists in Canada, unfortunately...

    ups will rape you with what they call brokerage fees, everytime I have had something shipped with them from the us they charge me, one time it was a 15 dollar motor cycle helmet and they charged me 24 dollars brokerage fees.
