Bodybuilding.com Customs charges

Has anyone ever been dinged with Customs from bodybuilding.com?

Recently I ordered from them and I realized they use fking UPS.

I have never had to pay customs when I order from Bodybuilding.com. I believe they have a warehouse in Mississauga now??

I made an order on Cyber Monday and it was delivered 2 days later, shipment originating in Concord, Ontario.

Pretty sure everything is paid on their end. I've never paid duties when ordering them, even on 400+ dollar orders.

That is why they charge you taxes at checkout and pre-clear your order so it doesnt have to go through customs.
My order made friday should already be here by end of day.

It depends. They do have a warehouse out by the toeonto airport but sometimes the products ordered are from the states.

Just received a $250 order from them this morning using UPS. No customs.
In fact, even on their checkout they specifically state '*THE SHIPPING OPTION ABOVE INCLUDES DUTY AND TAXES' so even if you did get charged, I am sure you could get it refunded by BB

Not necessarily, I was once dinged after buying stuff from USA cuz they shipped with UPS. Maybe it was USA tax?

Yo OP you aware?? Misc brah?

Anyways I never order from BB.com. Always too expensive. I usually order from nutraplanet. Usually their prices are quite a bit cheaper.

nutraplanet shipping is ridiculous, and they ship with UPS/FedEx without pre-clearing your order so huge chances that you also get hit with ridiculous taxes/custom fees.
