Shipping/handling/brokerage/duties sometimes are more than the actual part(s). Then have to deal with the really bad exchange rate. But need to pay to play. Canít get the parts up here otherwise.

Yeah, but the point is that Canada Post charges a flat $5 no matter what the value is, for doing the customs clearance and collecting any taxes owed, rather than the UPS $30. And half the stuff coming by mail comes straight through without having to pay anything.

Shipping is what it is. Until I can deliver or pick up a parcel myself for cheaper, pretty much a monopoly.

CBI will hold my packages for free for months, so if I have 2 or more UPS shipments, I save at least $24 per shipment on brokerage fees alone, that more than covers my gas + toll to drive 2 hours each direction to pick up my packages, so the difference in shipping costs US vs Canada is money in my pocket.

If you're too far away, need something right away, or too busy; that's a completely different story...

Instead of CBI I use https://www.crossborderpickups.ca now. They'll bring it over the border for you right to Mississauga or Markham.
