In my opinion, every intervention in RFD deserve a "thanks". Thanks given until now: more than 100,000

Sounds about right... Where else did you get a price? Canada Post?

Well it'll go through customs and duties either way. However if the shipping costs are really that high, doing it yourself does seem like a reasonable option if you have some time.

You'll drive from Quebec City to Erie, New York to save $500 but spend $400 in fuel and meals to get there?

A company I occasionally work with uses Day & Ross (sameday.ca) for bulky transborder shipments. Don't know the $, but the company is fairly cost-sensitive and not a frequent enough shipper to have some insane corporate rate, so worth a shot?

Mind you, I am currently going through frustration attempting to *receive* a bulky domestic shipment (from homedepot.ca) that happens to being sent via this same shipper, so I can't exactly endorse them wholeheartedly.

There is a thread on RFD about discount shipping options.

I currently use www.freightcom.com

I used to use eShipper for years, but 2 years ago switched over. Happy.
