      Not sure if you guys know about this or not, I don't frequent this forum enough. A friend at work told me about this place in Port Huron Mi where he ships all his stuff and then goes to pick it up. Saves tons of cash on brokerage and duty. Only $5 per package.
      I guess alot of you Toronto guys would want this in Buffalo NY instead, maybe there is something like that there too?

      If your goods are shipped by UPS have them sent to a Customer Centre near the border. There is no fee to pick them up however you will still be responsible for the duties and taxes at the border. The big thing is you save that brokerage fee that the carriers love to add on.
      Good luck

      You can clear goods coming in from any courier yourself AND have them delivered to your door. You will have to:
      Have the shipper fax you tracking # and invoices.
      Notify the courier you are clearing the package yourself.
      Visit a Canada Customs office and clear the paperwork & pay taxes/duties
      Fax the info to the courier
      UPS REALLY hates this.
      For anyone who lives in Kitchener, the local airport terminal works great!

      Cheap, fast, reliable - Pick your two!
