I have experience with shipping from Canada to the USA.. I have never had any problems with my receivers getting customs/brokerage or taxed on their items.


I received a few GPU's from a American Sender, I chose UPS as my shipping company to learn they charged me nearly $40 on a item with a $40 claimed value.....


I am wondering if anyone knows any tricks or way to get around these fee's..


My father (avid ebayer) says to always use Canadapost or USPS in most cases. and keep value as low as possible....




I spoke to a supervisor @ UPS to have my $40 brokerage/customs fees down to taxes only $5.30.... I was told by her that all Computer hardware receives these taxes....


Any experience or tips from any members in this great community

NEVER EVER AS A CANADIAN USE UPS....

Regardless of direction...


Just trust me..  I have never been raped so badly in my life...

Thier brokerage fees are on the order of criminal..

Not to mention the shipping back to sender after 3 attempts, and no means to tell them to keep the item for pickup after it has been sent..

+1000

Just got reminded why I should hate them so much (I had forgotten).

They slapped a 25% extortion fee on used PC parts shipped to me from USA.

Even the local UPS Store lady said the $60 'brokerage fee' was "a ripoff". There was tax on top of that.

UPS will charge you the rip-off $30+ brokerage fee for any parcel except through companies like Newegg who have an arrangement with them not to charge the fee, Canada Post FYI charges $8 and Fedex/Purolator somewhere around $20. So go USPS Priority Mail International anytime you can most times I never pay brokerage+tax perhaps 20% of the time I pay and if getting something from Hong Kong for instance I have never been charged coming from there.

I have found calling the 800 number they provide on their website solves that...

I had a very long conversation with a UPS supervisor. I was rather upset about being charged a 100% tax on my "$40" Item..... The lady had the charge dropped to $5.30.... I left $5.30 at my dad's store to have the package delivered while I am at work. They don't take cash... They wanted me to purchase a Postal money order, a bank draft. or use a credit card when the package is delivered.. for 5 bucks....


I paid over the phone prior to delivery but the scheduled delivery date was Wedneday.. I got it Friday Tongue

This.

UPS is bullshit. I had to pay about $70 on an $80 book once due to their "assistance".

I learned that you can choose a different brokerage company when shipping international.  Depend's what your sending...


No brokerage fee's or taxes on items $30 or less... That's what the UPS supervisor told me anyway.....
