Another 30 days for the border to be closed


It's actually very handy living so close to the border. Too handy sometimes. It has cost me extra money on occasion....

Have heard a few rumours about US People getting into Canada by saying they are traveling to Alaska, but have been seen in Kelowna and camping in Banff.
Not Good, they need to get a hold of this issue. Not a parts issues, sorry. LOL.

Glad you finally got the stuff Carl. I have been getting some things delivered directly to home but I also had another company (Brothers), who said their local couriers wouldn't pick up for Canada, even though they were the big ones like FedEx and UPS.

"The border between Canada and the United States will remain closed for another 30 days,

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Tuesday (June 16).

The border has remained shut to non-essential travel between the two countries since mid-March."

You must be glad you didn't wait !

I'm glad, you are right.

And I think that's a good decision.

As much as it's a hinderance when ordering parts it's the right move.

I'm surprised the courier didn't hose you for brokerage fees, etc. I have packages sent to a location in Montana, and go get them and bring them back.

I tried an outfit that has a location in Montana, and they'll bring them back to Calgary for pickup. I used them once, and never again. I got taken to the cleaners by their broker, and then they have minimum amounts. Then their exchange rate was way out of this world. They said they buy US funds in bulk, I asked them if they bought them in 1994.

I felt this company was way beyond fair. They have a perfect situation to take advantage of customers and instead they give a very fair rate. I can't say enough good about my experience with them.

My friend in W V was asking me if I made a BEER run for him , "would it be classed as "essential" ?? Seeing as I missed our annual June trip for his car show [ which was cancelled]

Every day I pass vehicles with New York plates on them that just entered from the US and think they just drove by my packages

What I found so painful was when I would be at the border and a mile across I could see the little town where my stuff was sitting.

I think there would be a great business opportunity here for a CP member in the US to get our stuff shipped to him, then send it to us in the cases of those sellers who won't ship to Canada.

GOOD STUFF!

That feels good doesn't it? I only had 6 pieces and it was like they were being held for ransom.
