You need to specify the buyer is paying for all the duties and taxes before sending it.

Its A PITA selling stuff Overseas or to Canada, alot of people don't want to be bothered.

When I lived in Montreal we would have stuff sent to friends in the USA at the border and drive down to get the stuff.

Going to the post office in a few minutes.  Sold some some 67 Fairlane hood scoops (spears) to a guy in Canada.  USPS large flat rate box, priority mail.  That box ships for $16.85 anywhere in the US.  To Canada it's $53.  Buyer agreed to pay, so ohhhh well.

USPS Priority to canada is the cheapest . Don't ship UPS to Canada ! as it's an automatic $50 for brokerage crossing the border minimum . A US address works the best

If it will fit into a USPS flat rate box then I will mail it.
If it won't ... I won't ship anything to Canada less than a $3,000.00 value; it is simply not profitable.

U.S.P.S. for sure. Aluminium cyl. heads and lighter works good. It's a lot more effort that shipping UPS in the USA....paper work and a trip to the post office. Beware that I have NEVER seen the online usps quote to be correct which most of the time is over stated, which requires more paper work to generate a credit invoice to the customer's credit card. All-in-all usps is a very good deal if shipping to Canada, Oz, England, etc.

I thought the U.S. and Canada were friendly. How can GM,Ford or John Deere afford this?Crazy  Have to admit I did like that break it up and send it in a smaller box.It would work on the if it fits it ships.
