ENOUGH IS ENOUGH


ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

Who's going to start treating us as an EQUAL

Not to be a P@### but if you guys (ALL VENDORS) would start deducting some (the same amount that it would cost to ship local) of the shipping costs off the price then it would be the same DEAL as you give to your US customers... We as CANADIANS already get F#@!% by our own people...if you know what I mean. (Camaros made in Canada but still we pay $10000 Approx. more than you....WTF) Look we're not stupid......you have FREE shipping within the USA(nothing is FREE) you just absorb the cost!!! when you ship to your USA peeps.... Why not us too... We will absorb some of the shipping of course....we all have to make a living...
SORRY for the rant...but it is true IMO...
I'm sure we all wanted to say this...& this is not aimed only at you guys...cause at least you are trying to get some sales from your friendly neighbors EH! In which we all appreciate....
By the way I always buy my parts from the US...( cause I have it shipped to an US address & then have to Drive to the US and P/U the package & then pay CDN taxes at the border crossing...which is a pain in the Ass) Not everyone is close to the US border....
So hopefully you guys agree with me...if not Sorry...PLEASE SHARE to the Vendors

We do offer discount shipping to those in Canada. We basically deduct the average of what we would have spent to ship the item within the U.S., and deduct it from the shipping total.

Best regards,

We use USPS for international shipping whenever possible. They will not allow us to ship liquids though, so sometimes we have no choice.

I would love to but shipping to Canada is double what it costs me to ship a package from Orlando to LA. The cost for me is normally $58, to Canada is over $110 :( this is something I could not eat it would put me out of business. Hell you think shipping to Canada is bad I had to ship a box to London the cost was $517.

Shipping to Canada always costs more...that is why you pay extra. In terms of carriers, Canadians seem to prefer USPS because they don't have to pay the brokerage that UPS charges. The issue is that that USPS is the least reliable way to ship something otherwise..especially a large parcel. Also their insurance process is a disaster. Because of that, we only ship items under $100 USPS.

Shipping will always cost more to Canada no matter what. If the company you are buying from is in Canada then yes it should be a reduced shipping cost compared to them selling to someone in the US. But as far as people & companies in the US shipping to Canada they can't change what the shipping service charges them to do it so it will always cost a bit more and only fairly to the person/company selling that it is. They shouldn't have to eat a fair amount on shipping costs because you live in a different country.

We ship to Canada for a few bucks LESS than what we are actually charged by USPS, and we don't offer free shipping to anyone, so you can't blame us

Not to mention that we are in a rural area, and ship everything else UPS which a big truck comes and picks up daily. For shipments going to Canada we actually have to get in a car and drive to the post office and drop it off, not to mention the paperwork and shipping process takes about 10x longer, and the billing is different which adds more work. I can't speak for other vendors, but I can tell you our shipping policy for Canada is more than fair to our customers, and we appreciate our Canadian customers business!

Our shipping price to Canada is actually pretty fair. We charge pretty close to what FedEx charges us. There are certain things you can't avoid and that is the Canadian Brokerage rate and the Tax.

You should see how much the shipping is to the rest of the world outside of the Western Hemisphere! Haha!

I use a broker. I order the part and have it free drop shipped to their warehouse on the border, they bring it over and I pick it up in town. This is still cheaper than buying in Canada. Bought my Supercharger and paid $267 for shipping taxes and brokerage to have it landed a few blocks from me.

This is true also.

The hardest part is most customers have come to assume the shipping fairy comes and delivers packages for free. The reality is, shipping costs keep going up, and customers won't accept anything but free which leaves us kind of stuck in the middle. The average CAI intake is $15-$20 to ship anymore for instance. Sure you can beat UPS up and save a few percent, but they raise rates 5% every year and get it back anyway.

It will be interesting to see how the whole thing plays out in the next few years. At some point you would think retailers will have to pass on the shipping companies added cost to the customer in some way.

United you stand,
Divided you fall.

If you all boycott the shipping companies they WILL fall,
And open up the market to new competition.

Tolerate this and you will be next.

You should take issue with the government regulation of imports and exports rather than taking issue with companies. Govt. puts up walls in the form of taxes, tariffs etc. Businesses do their best to find ways around those walls.
