this method sounds pretty good... do u have to pay duty when coming back?? In the long run, are u fellas that are buying on the net saving considerably that much?!? n is it worth the trouble???Basilla said:I usually have motorcycle parts shipped to the "Letter Carrier" at Point Roberts (you can find the address and phone number on the web).
Basically I have the parts shipped there. The letter carrier charges a couple of dollars to hold the package. You drive down, pick it up, and then pay only GST+PST at the border. Oh yeah, they call you when the package arrives.
Granted, I haven't done this since 9-11 but the Point Roberts border should be no longer than 2-3 minutes to get across.
This way, I save on all the brokerage fees AND many web sites offer free ground shipping to anywhere in the continental US.
... btw Basilla, where can i find out more about the "letter carrier" at Point Roberts...??
