Once and only once I order parts for my 70 malibu, for functional cowl induction flapper, 2rh and lh flapper brackets with bushings and screws from year one for under 50 bucks i believe via UPS but due to brokerage fees, provincal and federal taxs ect the bill ended up being $173.26
Sooo any thing I order as of later is shipped USPS and small items only.
Just a personal FYI

Chase is "The Man". I asked (back in October) about the possibility of Canadians ordering the LED Taillights... and Chase looked after me and let me place an order. I'll be installing them tomorrow, actually.

I bought 4 used rims from the U.S. and the member shipped them up by UPS. Before UPS would give me the rims, I had to give them $188.00 or they were going to send them back. It was $47.00 for each box. That was after already paying around $150.00 for shipping.

Figured I would give this old thread a bump for those that may not know. And we no longer use UPS for intentional shipping. All Canadian orders are shipped via USPS/Canada Post.

Thanks for the effort APEX!! I've always bought 99% of my parts in the US! Most of the local canadian speed shop will rip you off and they dont know shit about LS

True that the best way is USPS, UPS customs fees are simply outrageous. UPS are the fastest because they have their own private customs so it goes right through but, too expensive when youre not in a hurry.

I'm not sure if they are only commercial use, but Highlands uses Cross Border Solutions for our brokerage and if they sending party puts attention to them at the border, UPS or whatever courier used, doesn't get to charge the exorbitant brokerage fees. There is a schedule so you know exactly how much each shipment will cost. Just a thought for any and all using Apex and don't want to wait for snail mail.

Based on their website they appear to be geared towards commercial customers. All of this cross border stuff is pretty new to us but we are willing to explore anything that helps you guys.

Here is some information that pertains to these types of shipments. Referred to as Low Value Shipments Program (LVS). This program is extended to courier and postal shipments for both commercial (business) and casual goods (personal).


Effective January 8, 2013

"The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced today that Canada and the United States have increased and harmonized the value thresholds for expedited customs clearance to CDN$2,500 and USD$2,500 respectively. This is an increase from the current levels of CDN$1,600 for Canada and USD$2,000 for the United States. In addition, Canada has increased the low-value shipment threshold to CDN$2,500 for exemption from North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Certificate of Origin requirements, aligning it with the current threshold of the U.S."

So as long as the shipment value is less than $2,500 Canadian it can be processed through this program. Remember that means USD x Exchange Rate = Canadian Dollars.

Interesting. I guess I need to figure out what the hell all that means.
