[The UPS Store] [GVR] Ship to UPS Blaine, $0.99 / small pkg

Retailer:

Looks like UPS Blaine has decided to compete with 5D packages. UPS Blaine #6598, 1733 H St, Ste 450, is just several stores to the left of that new 5D Packages location. When I went there, the clerk to handed me this pamphlet. I was in a hurry and didn't read it until I get home otherwise I would have ask her for more details.

For those who want to save $1 every package (<50lb, smaller than 18x18"), you can ship to this UPS location instead. 50+lb and tires are same prices.

Mailing address:
[YOUR NAME]
#
1733 H St, Ste 450
Blaine, WA 98230

# is the number you are assigned once you sign up.

Store hours are: (comparing to 5D)
M - F: 8 - 8pm (open 2hrs earlier, but close 1hr earlier)
SAT: 8 - 6pm (open 1hr earlier, but close 2hrs earlier)
SUN: 10 - 6pm (same)

I'll also email them about the length of free holding period before penalties, and any notification alert. If not too bad I'll go here because I prefer to cross the border on early Saturdays to beat the crowd.

Update, response from UPS Blaine:

We need 2 picture Id to sign you up, the # represents that when we sign you up then we assign you a number. We charge $10.00 first time sign up fee and after that there is no annual fee, you are set for life. you only pay for the packages that you receive. 

We hold the packages for 2 weeks and after the 14th day there is a .50 cents a day storage fee. If you don't want to make a special trip to sign up then you can give us a call and we will take your name and phone number so when your first package arrives then you can come and sign up and once you signed up you will get email notification


Thank you

$10 sign up fee renders it a cold deal for me as I don't buy that much stuff from the States. Sticking with 5D for now.

I’m guessing they’d assign you a mailbox number for that address. That’s how my ups mailbox works

$0.99/parcel? HOT!!

Does it have to be shipped by UPS? Can receive USPS, FedEX, DHL, etc? I get it if you don’t have the answers, you were in a rush!

I might call that location and inquire about this, I’d love to sign up to use their service!

The truth.

U are better off declaring and telling what u gonna do than risk additional fees on top of customs/duty and be risk of being banned.

Do not lie to border guards. If they figure out you're lying (it's their job to find out), you will be in trouble.

Sounds like it's $1 only up to 18x18, otherwise $3. It's not uncommon for packages to exceed 18" in one dimension. I'd be worried about constantly getting bumped up to the $3 price. I mean you can rarely be sure what size box someone will choose to ship.

But if you order a lot of small stuff? Half the price of 5d ain't bad.

+1. Not worth messing around with customs. If you mess up once, it follows you for life with them.

Even for a day-trip, they let you in with $250 worth? $250 US or $250 CAD?

$3 per package for any side that is longer than 18". 18" is a small box. I am pretty sure any tires would be over 18".
