Default Cross border shipping solution?

That fence repair thread was my downfall.
http://www.routerforums.com/tools-wo...tml#post408686
Amazon.com won't ship the Vega fence to Canada...but much to my surprise, there's a really simple solution...
Reship.com
I bought the fence!

I queried ReShip on high priced brokerage fees, and they sent me their price list from the shippers...some charge nothing!!!
I think I just put $40 back in my pocket.

I'll let folks know how this works out; they handle reshipping all over the World.

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

I had that fence mounted on a 1977 Craftsman table saw. It kinda dwarfed it but man, it worked great!

Like Stick said, you're gonna love it!!!

Thanks for the encouragement, Guys! Between the Vega fence, the Shark guard, and the Osborne mitre gauge, I'm thinking I've put almost as much into the accessories as the saw ...oh, wait! Sorta like router bits.

There is a bunch of things that I tried to buy from the USA and they would not send them to Australia, this looks promising. N

Neville - you were exactly who I thought of when I saw this topic! Whatever method of money transfer that you used worked flawlessly, USPO was a complete flop! I am going to stay on this one (subscribed) for a while. Dan may be on-to-something!

Everyone have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Dan what are the charges you've been quoted for sending the fence to you?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

'Morning, Chuck! Enjoying the precip?

They're not 'shippers', so they can only quote what the truck lines quote to them.
As I mentioned, in my e-mailing back and forth, they stated that the Brokerage fees were anywhere from 0 to $10...and you know who was the $10 (clue: starts with "U")
On the Vega, it's shipped free from Amazon.com's warehouse to ReShip in Portland.
They'll open the package, check for damage, and repack securely for forwarding...my choice of courier or USPS.
I'm guessing DHL will charge somewhere between $40 and $100 to bring it to my front door. Taxes will also have to be paid...I'll be very pleased if ReShip takes care of that, but I'm still waiting to hear back about that.
They have my c.c. info so DHL gets paid upfront with no hassle to them...I'm pretty sure that's why there's a zip to small brokerage fee...bulk declaration, and Customs already knows the package actually contains what's declared; ReShip took care of that. No chance of drugs or weapons being smuggled because the package has already been opened and inspected!
