I thought shipping to Australia was bad, but now where near that bad! My sympathies to you from one who has to get everything from O/S.

I'm only a 45 minute drive from the border so I get the suppliers to ship to the UPS store. They call me when it arrives then I drive over to pick up the parcel.
I still have to pay the tax at customs and the UPS store charges $5.00 per box as a recieving fee.

Well worth it for me

It's simple just call the nearest UPS store on the us side and ask them the acept the parcels for you. Tell who they are from and how many boxes are being sent. The store I deal with in New York calls me and tellsme that they have arrived. Simple as that.

Hmm
I am sure it is illegal,but F*** em. You should ride your bike across the border if you live that close and put it on it right there and ride it back in.

I either send it to a buddy of mine on the US side and he brings it across on his regular trips(no duty) or I visit him and put the goods on down there. I just saved $85 on a new rear tire. Illegal?...yes. But if the Cdn gov could justify the duty charges I would be happy to comply. I just don't see it.
Damn, I just let the cat out of the bag. Now I'll have to move and change my name again. Probably cheaper to move south of the border. LOL
