Default Shipping to Buffalo as a USA address

Hi Guys,

Has any one used the following company to ship to?

http://www.cbiusa.com/index.htm

I'm about to order some parts from a company in Arizona. Unfortuantely they don't ship to Canada. My plan was to have them shipped to Buffalo and then pick them up there.

Any feedback would be much appreciated.

No personal experience with the company you are talking about, but I've been referred to www.usaddressinc.com by a few friends that have used it and had good feedback. Might want to give them a try..

My Dad has used cbi for some car parts and I was going to recently. Very cheap and easy to work with. Give them a call. All you need to do is have the company that you're buying from send to cbi's address with your name and phone number on the package and they call you when it's there. They will hold it for as long as you like.

When you guys buy and get it shipped here to these sevices do you have to pay duty when you cross back over into canada on the stuff you just picked up.

I used the above to ship my Tein Basics and other smaller items, they charge $5 regardless of the size or weight which is awesome. Had great experience with them, they're really close to the broder too.

I recently used CBI to pick up some parts. Super easy to use them. Just send it to their address and addressed to "Your Name (Care of: CBI)." It's $5+tax per package I believe, and $5 extra for over-sized or overweight packages. It was $10 or so to have my trunk sent there. Only a few minutes across the border and really easy to find.

A few people have used US Address Inc on Driver and from what I've seen, they've all been happy with them too, although I personally haven't used them.

CBI- very friendly and easy to use. Cost was $35 for 4 wheels (rims and tires) and they helped load them and take them out of the packaging. Good service.

Hey thats good to hear. I'm going to use them to get a set of wheels. How much did you get nailed for bringing them into Canada?

Taxes on the value. If you somehow had something that looked like a reciept but maybe said they were less $ you would pay less taxes...........

I'm about to order some parts from the states and I'm gonna ship to the ups store on Delaware in buffalo. They said they only charge 10-15$ (can't remember) and it's just over the boarder. All you have to do is email them with the tracking number your info and how many parcels.
And before you go ask the shop to email/fax you a copy of the invoice with a lesser value so you pay less tax on the part. Or if possible install it before you cross the boarder if it's something easy
