Default Calling all Canadians..

Looking for a forum member living in Canada who would be willing to help out with shipping a small fwd valvebody.

I need to purchase a valvebody from Lentech for a Mazda3 for a friend who does not speak English.

Lentech only ships via Fedex or UPS.

Both UPS and Fedex are dishonest highway robbers (here in Turkey) who milk their customers to death once their orders arrive in the country.
We are all sick and tired of them taking us to the cleaners every time we have to order something from abroad.

So, I was hoping there would be someone living in Canada who would be kind enough to accept delivery of the valvebody (not much bigger than a stack of regular printing paper) and ship it to my address using the regular post office.

The valvebody and all shipping charges will be prepaid.
I will reimburse the Canadian good samaritan for the cost of shipping from Canada to Istanbul, Turkey via Paypal, or whatever form of payment is convenient for them.

Would anyone care to help out?
Please?

Thanks..

Thank you, man.

I will wait for a day or two to see if anyone from Canada helps me put with this.
If not, I may ask you for the favor.

I just need to be able to receive this thing via USPS. That's all. Lentech can not to that.

I can help you out. I'm in Vancouver, BC, Canada though so shipping to me won't be as cheap as someone in Ontario. Shipping would be via Canada post so you might want to check the shipping rates on canadapost.ca.

Feel free to send me a PM if someone from Eastern Canada can't help out.

I`m in Ontario and can help out.... I just have to help out, especially considering my last name `Kulak` as my father is Turkish.

I was 1 years old the last time I was in Turkey.... I`m actually going to be visiting the country for 1 day in September as I am taking a cruise for my honeymoon.

Email me at my email address if you need my help...

Very cool!

Hey Alex,
Would you mind if Marc ships the v/b for me then?

Marc,
When you say you will spend one day in Istanbul, do you mean you will have free time in the city?
I am pretty sure we can arrange something here, like some exclusive sightseeing or lunch, or dinner, depending on your schedule/obligations.

I am sending you an email, as well.

Thanks guys!
