Good *canadian* source of 1U/2U rack mount servers (with online quoting & live stock check?)

Anybody come accross a good source of 1U/2U rack mount servers in Canada?

I have looked at Dell, HPE, Lenovo, SuperMicro but I can't find a good *Canadian* source (at least reseller) that can quote in Canadian dollars and hopefully save me the hassle of border crossing custom clearance. I also look at NewEgg and Canada Computers.

There are a few good American sources, even with online quoting & stock level checks but I have not been able to find a good Canadian equivalent... Tnx!

On eBay you can find one seller from Toronto another one from Calgary. Deal with Toronto one before very good service. Calgary one the price is very attractive but they don't have anything I need so far.

BTW: eBay is very good now, they pre-charge the custom fee so you don't need to care about that yourself. Only problem buying server from state is the shipping. Good price but often so expensive shipping kills the deal.

Did I miss a memo where all of those companies have Canadian operations?
I've purchased quite a few Supermicros from various local computer shops.
Had a look at Dell and they price in CAD. I can't imagine that the other listed companies don't.

I honestly don't get what the issue is.
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

Who’s the Calgary seller? I may look into getting a server myself.

I am also having hard time find Canadian outlets for fair prices. Do you mind sharing sources for ebay.
