[Merged] US Shipping Address for Canadians

How would I go about getting a US shipping address? I know there is a service provided by a company called Ship Happens in the PNW but is there anything like that for Ontario residents. If there isn't is a PO Box my only other option? Thanks in advance.

... did it ever occur to you that his handle is misspelled because someone else may already be using that handle?
this is exactly what happened...as you can see there are many Joseph's on RFD....must be a popular name

but if i'm not mistaken, i believe in one of the European countries they spell it Joesph

Grand Portage, MN 55605

Close to where I live and they charge 3 dollars per package.

most UPS stores in buffalo/niagara falls do this its called "drop shipemnt" basically u send it to ur self @ their store, call the store ask for details how to address your package, they call u when they get it, at store i did it it was 15$/7days holding. i did it 3 days ago no problems.

Joe,

I shipped my packages to the Can-Am before calling them, because they weren't responding to my emails.

If I call Monday before they arrive, they'll keep them on-site until I arrive to pick them up, right?

Tried to catch them before they closed tonight, but to no avail.
Holdin' it down like a fat kid on a see-saw.

What can I do if I never travel down to the states?

Is there a service that will recieve my US online purchases and then forward them along to my Canadian address?

Last question. Is this sketchy?

Same idea as above, use your name with that address, let them know (although that didn't seem entirely necessary). They charge $2 a parcel. Can't get much closer to Montreal than that!

Read through that thread and it'll give you some ideas. Post #10 might be what you're looking for.

It's not sketchy IMO, as long as you're not trying to import large quantities of heroin. You're not doing that, are you? ;)
