Cross-Border Pickups


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi,

Has anyone recently used CrossBorderPickups for ordering giant-scale ARFs? (http://crossborderpickups.ca/)

I want to order the new 85" EF Edge and the 93" AJ Laser and was wondering whether they handle larger boxes? Their fees seem pretty reasonable so i was kind of tempted lol especially with the border 'seemingly' closed for a good few months.

Re: Cross-Border Pickups

I used cbiusa.com It worked out ok, but we drove to Buffalo. Paid HST at the border. I’m pretty sure that’s all we paid. You have customs and duties as well as their fee.

Driving to Buffalo won't be an option for a good 6 months now

Re: Cross-Border Pickups

I have used Cross Border Pickups a number of times, all you pay is $20 plus the HST, there is no duty on rc stuff as it is classed as toys, no other fees except the $20 they charge to do all the paper work for you and bring it up here.

Re: Cross-Border Pickups

I use them all the time.

Price to bring it over is based upon size if package and consolidation of packages. You end up paying hst on whatever value you put on.

They are an awesome service, considing their office is 5 minutes from mine.

Do you declare the original value of the order or no receipt at all?

Re: Cross-Border Pickups

When the order arrives you login to their portal and put the value in. You get charged HST based on the value you put in.

Re: Cross-Border Pickups

Shipping Model stuff was not the first thing that came to mind when I read the title. I was ready to go pitch my tent in Peace Portal Park!🤣

Re: Cross-Border Pickups

I have used them, slower than they used to be but only a delay of days, still much quicker than Canada Post getting things into the country. I have always had a good experience with them...
