Don't know if this will get locked or not..
but here it goes...

I ordered my side clear for about $15 bucks off ebay a while back.. It took the guy quite a few days to finally ship it... and finally it was sent on it's way from Canoga Park, CA and headed to me in Vancouver, BC...

here's how it went...

took like... 7 days to get it to me.. and when I all happy and can't wait to open it up when i got it, the UPS guy told me that I have to pay a custom fee for it.. I thought.. no big deal.. since it's only 15USD... but when I look at the package, and the amount I have to pay... I suddently realize how ****en rip off that UPS company is...

They charged me $1.64 in GST and PST... but then charged $15.75 in broker fee!!! DANG...

what can i say? I'm speachless.....

your shipping will be 10 times what his was and thats just by water. if you fly your stuff over from Japan I cant even imagine how much shipping is.

LOL! Harlem2k, you posted the other day about the DTM P-1 wheels... I replied saying I was selling a set. I saw from your location that you were in "Richmond"... Thinking that you were in Richmond, Virginia (which is still quite a drive away from my location), I suggested that you come pick them up...


But judging by this post, I gather that you're actually several thousand miles away in Canada... Oh well. I thought it was kinda funny...

The Canadians hate stuff sent from America.. I sent my friend some Marlboro Cigarettes because they don't sell that brand over there... anyways...they charged him a custom fee too...Total...25 for carton.. 15 for mailing...15 for custom fee = 55 bucks..
