Yea thanks, im from Mississauga and i just wanted to say, the loons dropped your package off the back of their bill for $20 cash.

LOL

If its here, likely hitting the airport ? Mississauga is aprox 1 hr from niagra border, less if you're in a civic with mad vtec.

well hopefully it comes in today, because if it is near the border the loon should be handing it off to the rare blue bodied bald eagle that is notorious for losing people's ****

UPS shipping from pretty much anywhere in the US takes about 1-2 weeks to get here, depending on the item. Estimated time to get a manifold and DP from BEGI, 1 week.

When you ship stuff via the postal service that's when things slow down, not because of customs. I usually ship stuff Canada Post/USPS unless the buyer wants it faster and is willing to pay more.

No **** Jay; I thought it took me a long time to get anything I order. If I ship via UPS it only takes 4 days (and an arm and a leg! :gay but if they ship it to me via USPS it gets lost

UPS seems to take longer to ship compared to Fedex Ground. I've been pretty happy shipping internationally with USPS.

We used to use trained Loons, but they can't handle the winter snows.
So now we've switched to good ol dog sleds & they need to negotiate with the Beavers to get across the lakes & rivers.

People at FedEX are a bunch of asshats. They LOST my ******* diff. Was shipped out in three boxes, the diff, axles and driveshaft. Diff goes MIA, the other two boxes show up. Took a couple of months to finally get my $$$ out of them. Turns out they delivered it to the wrong address, in the wrong city, in the wrong COUNTRY! Nice.

Don't blame Canada Post, blame USPS. Canada Post is without a doubt the best courier service we have in Canada, I rarely use the other options here unless the package is too big for the post office.

USPS is better. Don't make us send Chuck Norris to kick your asses.
