Shipping parts from US to Canada

    Looking for comments/ experience with companys that provide you with a US address so parts can be shipped to it and then shipped to your Canadian address.  This would be for buying parts from EBay sellers who don't ship to Canada.  Some such company names are; SHIPPIT, SHIPITO, MYUS, BORDERLINX, RESHIP etc.

    I need to use something like this but don't want to get ripped off.

    thanks

    A couple of weeks ago, I opened an account with  www.crossborderpickups.ca to receive a shipment of bolts from Mcmaster Carr in the US (who will not ship directly to residential addresses in Canada) . All went well, and I picked up my goods from their Mississauga office.

    I have had the same issues. What I have found is there are lots border towns that have package pick ups specifically for Canadians. It's sort of a boom industry. In Manitoba I regularly have packages shipped to Menke's Parcel Service and it costs $5 a package. About an hour and a half from Winnipeg and when you factor in free shipping it easily pays for the gas. I'd look for another such service where you live.

    I've had good results with cbiusa.com in Niagara Falls, NY. They've been around quite a while and can handle a shipment of parts or a complete motorcycle.
