That is nuts!I had to say something Dale-Calgary......sorry.
As a good example - I just had a package delivered to me at home because of the border closure.
(I usually get US packages delivered to Point Roberts for this reason, as I live close by in BC.)
The company used FedEx and on a $460.00 US package I had to pay $172.00 Can on Brokerage fees........
Rockuphill pointed that out and I have proof of crazy fees........ouch!
Interesting........something to look into.I have never tried it, but apparently you don't HAVE to let the courier be your broker. Check out these articles:
There is a customs office in Calgary near the international airport, so this is probably doable. (Let us know if you do try it!)
