I've got them, but they were under home theatre. Maybe I'll rearrange a few things...

Ah, gotcha. Sorry, when the site has gone through redesigns with a big shift towards sponsorship, talk like that makes me nervous. (plus the internet sucks for sarcasm)

I hope Jeremy doesn't mind but I believe it's Kingston, Ontario

And yet another reason why it's safer to buy Canadian... yesterday I had to turn a package away (from the US) because I simply didn't have the money to pay the $120 in UPS fees mad.gif I'm going to have to try and broker it myself, except the delivery guy actually said he couldn't give me the invoice and tracking papers, which he was supposed to, so now I gotta make the trip to UPS and yell at them for papers, then figure out where the customs office is and get the papers signed there, then head back to pick up my package.

 

Grr, at least this quite as bad as the time FedEx tried to charge me $110 on a $100 item.

Thats nothing. Fedex sent me a bill in the mail for $1850, and then few days later another $600 (USD) in customs/duty charges.  *EDIT*  this was for one package.

Ouch... why twice?  (somewhere in the backrooms of FedEx, I can hear them snickering: "hey, let's see how many times we can make these suckers pay...")

 

As a business, do you not have your own broker set up? (or maybe that only works for large retailers, I'm not sure)

No no, the 1850$ was the shipping charges. the $600 was for duty/customs.   They just forgot to add it into the first bill or something.

Darn wouldn't it be nice to have something in QC (province). I'm in Quebec City and they mostly have Grados, some AKG and some STAX. To the best of my knowledge Quebec City has one (1) pair of HD800 and one (1) pair of T1. I visited them both.

If you want Denon then nobody has any.

Also yeah. If you buy from the US and is shipped via UPS or somethin', brokerage hurts big. Where's NAFTA in all this...

Were you importing an elephant? That's crazy...

close. five 100lbs spools of custom cable, shipped over fedex express from the USA. Had I known ahead of time how much it was going to cost for the shipping, I would have let them ship it ground lol. 

 

3602:  customs fees with UPS is only insane if you have it shipped ground. If you ship via their express methods they void the brokerage fees and you just pay the taxes.

But then you're paying a hefty chunk more for the shipping. Still... the lesser of evils.

post #45 of 53

You actually pay the exact brokerage fee difference in price from standard to express. So really, winds up being same price for either service, might as well take the one that arrives much quicker!
