There is also a UPS store in Ogdensburg, which happens to be open on Saturday, IIRC they will hold for 1 week, and costs $5 per package.

You could also get a mailbox, but it isn't required. (But if you're doing a lot of mail order shopping, it could save you money)

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? ;)
thanks so much mikeymadness -- i've meant to seach for this in the forums but I couldn't think of the right key words.

And no, all my heroin is smuggled in the intestines of unreasonably attractive south american girls, and accompanied by multiple cliche plot points.. :)

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.
ABSOLUTLY....they haven't turned corporate just yet...phone him up and tell him like it is

Although I live about an hours drive from the border I have a USPS post office box but for companies shipping by courier I use a UPS store in a small town, they offer a receiving service main ly for canadians and charge a few bucks, they also accept from other couriers.

Check for one of these places and give them a call

Even if he was from Iqaluit (which he ain't) it still doesn't excuse the fact that he's an ass-hat. :lol:

I presume you want to do this to get US prices without the hassle of driving across the border.

Thrift-seekers beware: most companies will not accept orders placed on a foreign credit card or a foreign IP address. Even if you clear it with your cc, these are automatic fraud flags in any major company and your order will usually be canceled :|

Keep AT&T Wireless off that list - my iPhone (and lots of other RFD'ers iPhones) works great here in The Great White North!

US Unlocked is an excellent service that recently started shipping to Canada as well. Every time you want to buy something in the US, register your shipment with them and you receive a unique US shipping address for your order. They receive it for you and consolidate your shipments (in case you have bought from more websites). They then send it to you at really good rates. You get it 2 or 3 days later.
If you do not have a US billing address, you can use their personal shopping service or (and I have not seen this anywhere else) their debit card with your own US billing address.
The US Unlocked account is free, no set-up fees. I have been using them myself and am very pleased.

Hmm. Thread resurrection, newbie poster, 2 posts, both about US Unlocked.

Not that I don't trust you, laura68, but can anyone else vouch for this service?

I just used this service for the first time today. Left Ottawa at 10:30, stopped for US cash at my bank, drove down 416, paid toll at bridge (UPDATE: $3.25 Cdn or $2.75 US), through US Customs, picked up my parcel at UPS store (not even 5 minutes from the bridge in a small mall with Price Chopper and Lowes) and was leaving Canadian Customs (after paying GST and PST on AmEx) at 12:38! Turns out I did not need US cash as UPS takes credit card payments ($5 for the parcel). Saved myself about $75 on Thule racks, and had a great fall drive as a bonus.

The UPS Store
2981 Ford Street Extension
Gateway Shopping Center
Route 37
Ogdensburg New York 13669
Their phone number is: 315-393-1188.
