Very nice find, I may be ordering a set of those diff. covers for my truck.
Hey guys, thought I would share this info:
For those guys/gals close to the Ont/NY border, for years I have been ordering US products and using a warehouse in Nia. Falls, NY to ship to.
They charge $5.95 to accept a smaller item (like one of those covers) and they hold it for days/weeks with no additional charges. I've even had a set of 35" tires shipped there!
I drive over, perhaps have dinner, pick up the box(es) and drive back home, when entering Can. I declare them and pay only the 13% tax.
Beats the hell out of being raped by UPS, Fedex, etc. to clear stuff. Heck, I remember paying UPS $60 to clear and cover taxes on a $100 item!!!
Plus, remember a lot of US vendors offer free shipping within the US.
There are a bunch of companies out there offering this type of service, I use CBI in Nia. Falls, NY, 14303.
Best way to buy stuff if you live close to a border.
