Does anyone know of any good resellers for countries like Columbia/UK into Canada with DHL or UPS? I've checked eshipper and their prices are really expensive (way above my budget).

Has anyone used ShipStation?

we only ship in GTA now and package is less than 1lb (dental cases). We use ICS courier (medical fields only) and we pay $10.22 per shipping up to 3 tiny boxes.

That's funny... I was looking at this back in Feb! I had to send a set up to a friend in Winnipeg.. we ended up putting them on a skid. I bought a set of tires from Quebec last month too.. they sent them with NationEx..

Nope, it was just with Freightcom. We cut down the skid, but it was 36 x 36 x 43 and about 220LBS with the pallet weight. We paid about $130 since it was going to a residence and with insurance. We didn't do a tailgate since they just hand bombed them off the truck. Aint nobody got time for an extra $50 for a tailgate lol.

Boy, have times definitely changed. I shipped worldwide super saved several years ago for $89 to Singapore cellphone sized box.

I just tried shipper AZ to YOW, only eShipper came up as an option for $70!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jesus. I'm registering for freightcom now. Hopefully they do it better.

LOL. Why didn't anyone tell me freightcom is e-shipper?

If you didn't know before, well now you know.

Identical log in portal. Identical quote menu & structure.

AND>>>>>> identical DHL Quote of 63.14USD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOLY CRAP. for two damn ball joints. small box., 20lbs MAX..Ughhhhhh

Boy, times have changed....I wonder if they're still great for domestic - and just International has died a horrible decrepid death.

That's not news, I realised that a while ago lol. I called them ages ago to try and provide all prices on one platform but they told me they have been separate companies for the last 3 or 4 years. Freightcom usually always has the better prices (albeit I've only tried Canada to Canada or Canada to USA) so you'll need to do your homework on comparing the two. I'm sure if you wait a day or so, someone from eshipper will DM you lol

within an hour, someone CALLED me from freightcom., offering discounts to improve the unsatisfying quotes I received. Curious to try again, actually thanks for reminding me. I'll check now.
