So what do you do when you’re looking for a US shipping address using and the area you’re interested in doesn’t have a Kinek Point? Well, you can browse the map to see if there is a Kinek Point border location somewhere nearby, but what do you do when even that doesn’t work?

We here at Kinek are are pretty committed to making cross border shopping as easy as possible for Canadians and we believe that the more Kinek Points there are, the easier it is for you guys to get your shopping done. This is where we could use your help. If you’ve used our map/search tool over at and you didn’t find a convenient Kinek Point near you, then you can suggest that area to us.

You can do this really easily. If no Kinek Points show up on our handy map, then it will automatically display a short form that allows you to request a Kinek Point be set up there. You can even put in your email address so we can notify you once we have a location set up.

We’ve been getting tons of recommendations from our users and readers of Ship to the Border, and we’re working hard on to set up a location everywhere we get a request!
