ABSOLUTELY NOTHING sent via USPS Global Express Guaranteed

- customer pays a FORTUNE for this service
- bloke fills out extra forms on the USPS website
- bloke makes a special 15 miles r/t to the Post Office - since the customer is in such a hurry
- package never arrives, because these are subcontracted to FedEx, and - apparently - FedEx does not approve of the USPS customs form that bloke was prompted to fill out online, and - thus - made it past the pay wall, with the USPS approving of everything bloke filled out.
- after FedEx spitting it out, package (after MONTHS) is returned to bloke, customer is going bananas, and expects bloke to intervene in a refund of the ridiculously high charges for the UPSP/FedEx/bloke triangulated dysfunctional "guaranteed" service.
- bloke isn't looking forward to that, as bloke strongly cautioned the buyer to NOT use that service, and can just IMAGINE having to talk to BOTH USPS AND FedEx people, and hearing conflicting rhetoric
- customer is upset

NEVER AGAIN... :!: :!: :!: :evil: :evil: :evil:

First Class International - OK
Priority International - OK

Your stuff will get to your country (via either of these AFFORDABLE and FUNCTIONAL services) PLENTY quick, and any delay in you receiving a mailed parcel will be due to your countries' own customs delays or your countries' own sluggish postal services.

Thanks for your understanding. :D

Having imported 100’s of items to Canada from the USA, USPS priority or USPS anything is the best to avoid brokerage fees. Purolator is time 2nd best followed by FedEx. Absolutely the worst is UPS as they charge rediculous custom clearing fees - on top of all the shipping fees that have been prepaid. I have paid as high as $40 CDN to clear a 20 dollar item. So hopefully whatever method works best for you will also work for us. Basically don’t use UPS.

What is it about "free trade agreements" that you don't understand??

Based on what I 've read and noticed from using other companies I deduce that :

$10.00 goes to Customs for the "admin" they provide
$3.00 goes to the province for the sales tax
The rest goes to UPS

All the companies in Canada from which I buy stuff will *only* ship to the US via UPS. Hmm...
