Destination charges..............WTF?!?!

GM Canada is charging $1400 CDN for a car that is built 2 hours from my house but they are only charging $1350 CDN for the G8 which is built thousands of miles away across the Pacific ocean in Austarlia. Plus GM is only charging $750 USD for the Camaro in the States which even with the exchange rate is still a bargain compared to Canada.

End of rant.

I agree. This is madness. If it were Sparta, we wouldn't be having this discussion. Instead, some of us would be kicking others into a giant well.

We Canadians always seem to get the short end of the stick..one way or another they find ways to show us we are a lesser people than our friends to the south.

Don't get me wrong but I love the US since i lived in California for 10 years and loved it but when I can back to Canada it really hit home when I realized that we pay so much more for the same service and products that our friend do and the reason is not always evident.

I was told 7.99% through GMAC and no incentives but you can use up to $1500 in GM points.

last week i got a letter from gm that they offer me 2600$cdn cash back/rebate/off... on any vehicle that gm has..if i'm going for the camaro SS--since we canadians cannot get the g8 GXP-- it will serve for this..they are desperate..maybe that will cover for the high financing..lolbut at close to 8% it's not cheap.. if it would be lower like 2.9 or 3.9% they would have more sales..

Sorry, but this is nothing new.

Say you live in Bowling Green, KY and buy a new Corvette and opt for Museum delivery. You still pay the destination charge

Destination charges are just a way to build back profit into an artificially lowered MSRP for car companies. Since the big dealerships all race to the bottom on price, its a way to inflate the 'dealer invoice' number we all see. Like the Regional Marketing Charge. By the way, I am not saying that car companies don't pay for shipping, they certainly do, but that is the cost of doing business. I'm sure some dealers will disagree with me, but it is what it is.

Try living under ten minutes (by car, hell I could walk there) and still accepting that $1,400 freight charge. For pete's sake, if they spend that much on fuel to get it from the line to the front door of my dealership, I know why they're in financial turmoil!!!

Actually it's $50 charge for shipping, $1,350 storage charge to hold your car in the QC lot for an extended period of time.... schwing! OK... now I duck...


A little late to the rant party my friend. Don't search this topic though. The level of frustration that will be returned will blow-up your computer.

Just be a good Canadian and bend over and....

Shipping is an equal charge in each country to spread the burden of the overall cost of shipping across the country, especially to remote areas. If you take the total cost of shipping cars in the country and divide it by the number of cars shipped, this gives you the total shipping charge per car. Since the number of cars being shipped in Canada (denominator) is much lower than in the US and since we have to ship to a large number of remote areas which increases the total cost, we end up paying more in Canada on a per vehicle basis than in the US for our destination charge - sucks, but it is how it has always been done so people up in Yellowknife don't have to pay $20,000 to have their cars shipped to them.

Well, I don't want to be a jerk, but if I ask for something to be shipped to me from, say from ebay, I pay a certain rate based on my location, not based on everyones location who has purchased that item. So a person in Mainoba will pay a different amount from a person in NY who will pay a different amount from a person in Russia. (Okay we could get into the semantics of a shippoing company having certain overhead costs which are blended and shared blah, blah, blah, but I don't feel like thinking too hard about this). Now, if QC is in Manitoba or something I can see them flatlining the costs for shipping, but I'm pretty sure it's nearby (next door to the plant). Being that I live LITERALLY 5 minutes from the plant and my dealer is equadistance, I don't think I should eat the cost of someone elses shipping. Again, I don;t want to sound like a jerk, but I've paid hefty shipping fees for things I really want and I eat those costs. Otherwise I didn't want it that badly!!! Just my honest opinion. Not meant to offend...
