    Hi guys
    Can anyone share their experiences in international shipping from USA or Canada please?
    Like what companies are cheaper,quicker or more reliable then the others.
    I need to arrange a collection of parts from Canada and any advice would be very much appreciated.
    Thanks

    Canada is an easy one use Puralator. I have stuff shipped to my mates house in Toronto and then he ships on to me. If you can get the package marked " car parts replaced under warranty zero value" you will also avoid duties this end :)

    Thanks for info
    Tried them and they quoted twice more than the DHL.
    I'm just wondering if the duties avoidance tip would work with DHL?))
