Whiskey and SAC ship UPS but the ground shipping rate they quote includes all fees as they ship all of their Canadian orders bulk. This means that everything going to western Canada gets shipped to Richmond BC first and they sent out from their. Not sure where the Eastern Canadian location is but they get treated the same way.

Snowboards for sale is the only one I know of that will ship burton stuff.

List of brands SAC and Whiskey restrict shipping on.



Due to contracts with the following brands, we are unable to ship any of their products outside the US. If you attempt to order one of these brands and have it shipped outside the US, we will contact you and cancel the order. However, it is OK to purchase any of these products with an international credit card and have the product shipped to a US address.

* Arbor
* Arc'teryx
* Burton (including RED, Analog, Gravis, Idiom and Anon)
* B by Burton
* Cascade Designs (including MSR, ThermaRest, Platypus, SealLine, and Tracks)
* Fox Racing
* Fritschi
* K2
* Lowa
* Line
* Marmot
* Marker
* Tecnica
* Volkl
* Mark 13
* Nixon
* Oakley
* O'Neill
* Polar
* Patagonia Footwear
* Ride
* Thule
* Vans
* Yakima

We can only ship La Sportiva to North America and Chariot Carriers to the lower 48 States

We can only ship Billabong to United States, Canada and Belize

We cannot ship The North Face to Canada

Silly That is a really good deal!! I wish I had known last week, I would have ordered one too.

At the moment I'm helping my GF find a new board and bindings for next season. The prices in the States are just too good.

Ispepsi most recent one, (that I have paperwork convenient for)


QTY ITEM NO. ITEM DESCRIPTION EACH TOTAL
1 FRM0167-CM148 Forum Superstar Freestyle Snowboard - Women's148 cm $184.99 $184.99
Subtotal: $184.99
Tax: $0.00
Shipping: $37.07
Total: $222.06

So the $222 is total cost, the $37 includes my GST/PST/duties/shipping and brokerage fees

Zee That $430 shipment shipped via USPS would have cost you $8 in brokerage, plus GST and PST. That's why UPS and FedEX suck when it comes to Canadian shipments.

Bones If you're getting it shipped across the border, there's no way to avoid brokerage fees, GST and PST. Bear in mind, that if the stuff is made in North America, there's no duty under NAFTA, just sales taxes.

Here in Ontario, that's 5% GST + 8% PST.

I just brought in $430 worth of Board and Bindings. Fedex wanted a $15 flat fee, $65 extra shipping and 20% of the invoice for duty/taxes. About $160 extra.

I ended up getting to shipped to a Mail Boxes Etc. place across the border (free from the vendor), paid MBE $10 to receive and hold it for a week, drove down and got it. Declared it at the border and paid about $54 in tax.

Better yet is the exemption you get if you're out of Canada for 48 hours. No tax/duty on goods that you bring back personally under $400

Depending on what you're buying, it might be worth planning a weekend boarding trip to some place in the states, get the stuff shipped to a nearby MBE store, pick it up, ride for the weekend and bring it back tax free. The savings may pay for the lift tickets.

Zee When buying from WM or SAC, what are you paying for brokerage?
