Hi all ; if anyone does international shipping who do you use? im up her in canada not far from the usa boarder. i went to our post office to see about mailing my daughter glasses for school as she is studing in Anguilla, a small island off St Martin. our post office said 10 to 14 days and $75.00.  I have seen some people on this site ship big heavy stuff for that but i am not familar with your mail / shipping who would you use? i can drive to niagara falls usa in 30 min and could mail / ship from there. thanks for the help and info john

for international I use ups only from a shipping store, the postal service the rates were to inconsistent from quotes to actual.
It makes zero sense the rates I recently purchased a model airplane from the Netherlands to the us the shipping was 4 dollars?

I use USPS for all my international customers

 

If the item wont fit in one of the flat rate envelopes your generally going to pay $60-$80 for a box

I used to sell on eBay a bit....Most of the time I found that I could ship something from Canada to the US cheaper than I could ship something to here in Canada. Never understood that one.

It’s February, You should deliver in person
Possibly get quote from Purolator or other international courier

  I would have my daughter investigate it on her end. I would think a school on a small island would be largely dependent on foreign students and would want to help with such problems. Don

Is St martin a us territory like St Croix? IF so, and your close our north border, cross that line and ship without issues. I always want a tracking number for anything important.
