which carrier to Canada

  1. I need to ship two boxes to Canada, and I'm wondering what your guyses experience has been with convenience, low hassle, cost etc. I'm not asking for the 14th time about duties, that's taken care of, but I tried Fedex and they gave me the run-around about shipping ground, (said Ineed an account)and tried to ship from where I work, but that didn't pan out either.

    USPS?
    UPS?
    Fedex?
    DHL? (now that they're a ground carrier)
    Joe's station wagon?
     
  2. I've had the least trouble with ups when recieving from the US. Fedex has been awful both times.

    Canada!
    USPS works best for me.
     
  4. USPS if my favourite option. They charge the least to clear customs. UPS and Fed Ex have billed me $20Cdn for some items to clear, while USPS/ Canada Post only charge $5Cdn.
