Can/us shipping

Is there a company in the states that will revive your package and then deliver it to our side of the border. Looking at a welder purchase from northern tool and neither me or the wife have passports.

We use Pembina Parcel Service, but they don't deliver across the border. Just curious why you are ordering a welder from Northern Tool?

Keep asking. There are definitely services that do that for you. I've never used one, but they do exist. I believe there is one based out of Emerson.

running red is not cheap. Cost me $90 to bring some things over the border at one time. There were efficient, but the cost surprised me. Don't go by their website pricing as it doesn't include and customs / duties.

I do not have a passport nor a enhanced driver's license and I have items sent to Border Services in Dunseith, North Dakota and I drive thru Customs and pick them up - Customs keep telling me I should get a passport but I have never been refused entry to the United States. Hope this helps

They have a set fee for their service, any duties, taxes etc they have no control over. They pass these on to their client.

What are some things? Large/heavy?
I imagine they have crazy fees to pay to run such a service

yeah, careful with that quote. like i said, i had about $200 in car parts and pool supplies picked up at Corner Parcel in Pembina and it cost me almost $100 to get it to winnipeg. there are other costs associated that they don't add in their quote. I get they have no control over these additional costs, but they don't show those in the quote.

Duties (if added) would be added no matter the way it was brought across the border. You would have to pay them if you went and picked it up as well. I do agree it has to factor into cost. Was the stuff you bought made in the USA?

I've used Running Red once and had no complaints. I had it shipped to Mikes Parcel first. Even after paying both those companies, there was still a savings for me.

i can't find my original invoice from them. They did a good job and i had no complaints with there service.

it's almost better to go and spend 2 nights in grand forks for $200 bucks, enjoy your time there and then pick up your stuff and bring it back.

Brokerage firms do this but are expensive. I suggest you get a passport or enhanced drivers license I use Menke in Neche to get parcels

Same here, I cross at Lena and have never been refused entry without passport or enhanced driver's license .

you will have to pay both taxes on the Canadian value plus duty if its not made in the USA. plus the added service fee for bringing it across, as well the fee for what ever postal service you use to ship to but that fee is usually only $5.00 for smaller items. so all and all it has to be a good deal to make it all worth while. and don`t forget the good ol exchange rate ..................
