Quick shipping question.... canada?
i checked the sticky and some other threads but i couldnt find the best way to ship 176 skis with binders to Toronto. i'm in NH so i don't think it'll be too much but should i just take them to USPS or should i go UPS or one of those companies? will it still be in the 30$ range?
I went to ups today because I'm shipping skis to canada...my skis w/binders 15lbs...and its gunna cost like 32 or something....idk if its cheeper usps or not
i got some skis shipped to me from ogfeez and it cost him $43 for express with usps
do the guy a favor and ship usps. ups rapes you with duties and tariffs.
alright thanks guys, will do. also, whatd you ship your skis in. i was thinking a little bubble wrap and then cut some strips of cardboard?
I cut up some old boxes at home put my skis in wedged the boxes (kind od dolded them over) and taped shut I also , wrapped some towels around the tips, and bindings,
just a couple things - ship USPS, not courier so the guy doesnt get raped, also mark the package as a GIFT and low value because then no customs fees, usually shipping UPS will run you about 35 bucks. also just cut up and tape some cardboard around the skis, they will be fine but if you want to be extra nice +bubble wrap is always good.
not always didnt have any on my skis and usps takes a while to get to Canada usually
go to your local shop and ask them for a cardboard ski box. they will probably have some.
