EMS Shipping from Dan Moto

Anyone ever use this method of shipping? I have never heard of it. Im wondering what i might get dinged with when it gets delivered to me in Canada.

You will likely get dinged with at least duty and taxes, and it probably won't be cheap. There is also a pretty good chance you will end up with the brokerage fee too which is kind of an arbitrary amount if you don't know who the broker will be beforehand. And of course they have you over a barrel since all that stuff is COD.

Can't say about Canada but have received many items from the Orient via EMS and never any problems. Shipping to the US New York was the first stop and then picked up by the US Postal Service and delivered promptly. Usually took less than a week and the cost was not much more than coast-to-coast in the US.

I have been shocked at the extra 'fees' to receive packages in Canada as well as from Canada to the US. My experience is rather dated so it may not be relevant today. Not practical for where you live but for some a friends address across the US border and a trip (vacation) to visit occasionally could work. My mom used to cross into the US for groceries because they were cheaper. I think if you stay so many hours you are allowed to bring a certain $ amount in merchandise. And of course some don't declare any new purchased stuff but you don't want to get caught.

Years ago I went from NB to ME spent 1 night and brought back 24 bottles of a favorite brew into NB. I didn't see a problem and when asked I told the Canadian customs about the beer. After some consultation I was told I needed to be out of Canada for 48 hours to bring the beer in. My choices were to leave the beer behind, go back to the US or pay tax on the beer. Choosing to pay, the price of the beer effectively doubled. Then they searched my vehicle thoroughly. Some days you can't win.

good luck and keep us posted on the outcome.
