Shipping at the border

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This is a reverse question to what you might be expecting.

I know there are places near the border in the US that allows Canadians to ship to a US address and then cross the border to pick them up.

I am looking for the opposite. A place on the Canadian side since the company i'm trying to buy from won't ship to the US. Preferably in Vancouver area.

There's a UPS store in White Rock that seems to accept shipments. I don't know if you can arrange it remotely or if you'd need to go there in person to set it up.


I'm trying to be patient, but you know that's not my default position.

When I lived in Ottawa, I ordered tires, and reserved them at UPS store in Ogdensburg. As a matter of fact a lot of people ship tires there. And UPS store charges $5 or $10 storage fees.

I am sure many other border town UPS do the same.. Call your border town UPS store.
