Having many shipments to Canada in the last 25 years .
My experience has been best method for small packages U.S.Post office.
Fed Ex is next best .
.Never ever use UPS to Canada…
If you have a larger shipment and are close to the Border UPS to the local ups office and hold for pick up. my Case it is Watertown NY.
If you want CHICKS they will not ship to Canada .
I made arrangements with the Post Office at LaFargeville NY Just North of water town NY twice worked great .
Two days from hatching to the PO .
Gave her a block of Canadian cheese and she was thrilled,
Great people in the US P.O.
I fully agree for small packages. The biggest issue we at Inspector Outlet have had with shipments to Canada through the USPS is that they have destroyed many packages and we have been unable to be reimbursed by them. They’ve lost several of our shipments too and refuse to take responsibility. We now only use FedEx for large packages when shipping to Canada (usually the cases of “Now” books that are in high demand).
U/Puke calls demanding my charge card number to charge $50.00 broker fees for the $25.00 item. When I refuse to give out my Card no. they send the package back.
Canada post charges 5.00 brokerage fees for expensive items and no fee for low cost items. US Post works for me or second choice FedEx.
