US border pickup depot?

Stupid question, I remember reading something on RFD about if I ordering stuff from US web site I can ship them to a US depot then I can go pickup from there. Can someone please tell me the name of that place?

thanks

CBI or USAddress are the 2 most frequently used by most here...

Another vote for CBI. But these damn gas prices have me thinking twice now about going to the border to pick up packages.

LOL - so true. Was just in Niagara Falls (NY) this past weekend and heard my neighbouring pump users grumble about the 4$ gallon (4.05 actually), and I mentioned that we were paying way past 5.25$ a gallon when you converted the litre pricing (and not counting on exchange). The look of disbelief was amusing (but very sad for my wallet when I think about pumping gas on the Canadian side of the border).

Just a warning about CBI, although I used the service and I thought it was great (they even give you free coffee if you want, they have a keurig machine), the issue I have is their hours. I wish they were open later on Saturday or maybe open on Sunday. I think they are only open until 1pm on Saturday and closed on Sunday and not open too late during the week. If the time works for you though, they I highly recommend going with them.

So it looks like it's right on the border & is normally $10 for a pickup. Haven't used them so can't comment on service...

None of us really use UPS as their fees are a lot higher than CBI and USAddress. $5/package is the regular price at the other places. ;)

True, I dispise UPS (and their fees!) but I figured for $5 it was worth it. If OP is looking for all different options this might be good for him, or the hours might be better.

Now if only I could get a work around for the USA Paypal account ;)

Actually CBI is $5.95 per package
