I just picked up a GT-40 upper on ebay for a decent price. What is the best way to ship it? I imagine insurance is a good idea.

Secondly, the seller did not want to send it to Canada, which poses a bit of a problem as - here I am. Would anyone be so kind to let me bounce it to your address, then re-route it to mine?

Are there any Canadians out there with shipping/border crossing experience?

Thanks,

Geoff

I sent a pair of donor exhaust manifolds to a guy in Canada earlier this year.
In the paperwork he told me to put that I was shipping used auto parts, that were a gift, for personal use, not for resale.
I think thats everything. He had no trouble with customs.
If you change the title of your post to something like "Need help shipping parts to Canada", I bet some of the other guys north of the border will speak up.

Not trying to get my post count up or anything like that. I got an address where the seller is sending from:

LAKE IN THE HILLS IL 60156

Pardon my ignorance with this. This is the name of the city?

You might want to give Bob Wheaton a call or email at www.cobramotorsports.ca

He is a FFR dealer in Welland ontario but he may be able to give you some ideas about what's involved. He has actually sold FFR's to Americans via his Ontario company so I figure he may have a view on how the border stuff works.

My own experience is with importing manufacturing equipment from the US and all i can say is that you better have the right description on the paperwork so that the mentally impaired types we have running our customs service don't get confused.

Thanks for the help. I understood the State and Zip, but just wanted to make sure of the City. Cool name.
