LA to Toronto

Anyone coming from LA to Toronto that can save me some money on shipping? I bought some lights from someone in LA and would appreciate the help.

Thanks!

I'd use USPS. The cost is low low and the shipping time is comparable to others. Most of the time you get away without the duty/brokerage fees that UPS is notorious in charging. I would never use UPS out of the states.

USPS for sure.

I just started to order parts from US for my w209. I noticed that none of the US online stores offers free shipping to Canadian destinations.

UPS adds custom/brokerage fees while USPS does not. On top of the extra costs, UPS will take longer because this custom/brokerage process takes a few extra days.

Funny how things work differently around the World.
I have terrible experience with government-run USPS. While package shipped from China have perfect tracking program, the USPS tracking is not working at all till they deliver.
To top it - the postmaster here will not even try to deliver packages where signature is required. I have a gate, but they don't have intention to walk past it. They will leave notification at my mail box and drive with the package for the rest of the day. So even I take the notification in the afternoon and go to PO - the package is not there.
UPS driver will honk the horn and walk 200 feet to drop the package on my porch.
