I personally order items from the United States and have them shipped to the border all the time. Once my orders arrive at the border, I simply drive down and pick them up myself. This saves me from paying expensive brokerage fees to shipping companies in order to have them bring it across the border for me. Shipping the item to a US address also lets me order from all sorts of great companies that don’t ship to Canada. Even if the item I am ordering is available in Canada, I can typically save considerable money by ordering from the US and having the item shipped to a US shipping address. The savings are significant even after factoring in the cost of gas to drive there and back.
It still amazes me how much you can save by shipping to thee border, and how many people either don’t know about it, or don’t know how to go about doing it. The purpose of this site is to share this type of information with other Canadians, along with all sorts of other cross border shopping tips and info. Again, if you have any questions or tips of your own, give us a shout! We’re always happy to hear from our readers.
We will be updating this website constantly with more information about cross border shopping, USA shipping addresses, brokerage information, and much more. Stay tuned and stay informed!
