Canadian Customs Back log

So for anyone ordering stuff or waiting on stuff from the US, customs canada is backlogged. With the high Canadian dollar, alot of people are ordering from the states - which then leads to packages being held in customs for over a week.... Still waiting on a some stuff from Critical paintball, which has been sitting in customs for the past week :S.

Was it shipped priority, first class, or courier (UPS, FedEx)? In any case, thanks for the heads up.

Get it sent to The Letter Carrier in Point Roberts. Eliminate customs all together.

You will have to draw me a map to you secret underground tunnel Joel as you still need to cross through Customs to get out of Point Roberts. True, they dont often charge any tax or duty as Ive been let through with as much as $250 before but its still not fool proof.

The other potential problem is that the package security is not spectacular at the Letter Carrier. You just walk in, say a name, pay the $3 and walk out with a box. I cross weekly and have picked up close to 50 packages from the Letter Carrier, mostly paintball stuff, and I have been given other people packages with the same name as myself. There are some less than honest people out there who will not say anything. Its kind of risky if you are receiving a $1000 marker. Any insurance will be useless as the package was delivered successfully and signed for. I have read some horror stories of people trying to resolve such issues with the Letter Carrier without luck.

I will still use them but I make sure I use my full name or a bizarre alias.

How about building a mail-carrying submarine then, like the South American Narco drug subs?

I guess I've never really had any problems for two reasons. One being my last name. Not many people with a long french last name like mine, and secondly, they know me pretty well. In regards to the horror stories, I have heard none myself but I'll take your word for it. Considering right off the bat you're going to be saving the $35-45 Customs fees that UPS or FedEx charges you on a package, anything under $200 is worth the chance. If I'm gettting a $1000+ marker shipped, then I'll pay FedEx the little bit exta for peace of mind. But for small orders, I think the LC is a no brainer.

I had stuff from and to the states ship fast. It depend on what it is. I has stuff from Action village come in 5days that's with customs. It all differs with what is sent. UPS and FedEx charge custom broker cost while USPS has internal customs so its already covered. USPS does have insurance you just need to pay for it. I have sent $1000 guns with out a problem .
