Hey Massive, please don't use UPS for packages going to Canada because once it gets to the border it is taken over by another courier company (usually Purolator) that will charge us ridiculous amounts for brokerage fees and it only gets collected once the parcels are delivered. It may be more convenient for you (or not, I don't know) but it always ends up costing the Canadian customer so much that some may think that it's you who is ripping them off. I have seen some good deals from some online American stores but if they only ship through UPS I know to stay away from them. I once ordered a used notebook for $200 and had to pay $50 shipping and over a hundred dollars in brokerage fees and taxes, etc. I've gotten burned too many times.
