Shipping USA into Canada

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi Guys.

Anyone know of any recent <past month or so> problems with shipments getting from the states into Canada?

I do online GEM and the details below are from just 1 of a few problems I have had just this month. Customs form is always signed and dated properly packed, insured, with orig of mfg country, and not over Canada's size limit.

Seems like the one below was returned <although I never actually got it back and it was re dispatched>

Your item arrived in CANADA at 1:21 pm on February 15, 2005. Information, if available, is updated every evening. Please check again later.

Here is what happened earlier:
INTO FOREIGN CUSTOMS, CANADA, February 15, 2005, 1:21 pm
INTERNATIONAL DISPATCH, MIAMI AMC, February 13, 2005, 10:55 pm
ENROUTE, February 13, 2005, 2:19 pm, MIAMI, FL 33112
ARRIVAL AT UNIT, February 12, 2005, 8:03 am, OCALA, FL 34477
RETURN TO SENDER, February 08, 2005, 5:32 pm, MIAMI, FL
ENROUTE, February 06, 2005, 12:53 pm, MIAMI, FL 33112

Just checked another package that was sent on the 10th: and it was being returned as of the 15th

Anyone have any thoughts/comments? I'm really

Well not really sure what the problem is. If this one does show up on my doorstep maybe it will have the reason why.

I just find it strange to have a package returned and then re dispatched yet again by the USPS. Meanwhile my customers are waiting on their kit after paying for GEM

I'll let you know if I find something out. I have been shipping into Canada for the past several years with out any problems at all only to then have several messed up shipments in one month alone

Thanks guys!

BTW, Bob, if your coming down via I-75 I'm only about 3 minutes off I-75 and Hwy 27 if you want to stop in and say howdy

I'm not checking myself but there are supposed to be new rules cross border. If the package isn't addressed properly it can be returned to it's origin. Everything must be exactly right including return address

see this

just a possibility
