We have a U.S. warehouse that is available for you to ship your packages, boxes, pallets and shipments to.
A) Why would you want to ship to a U.S. warehouse?
Here are a few reasons –
You purchased something online – eBay, Amazon, etc., from a U.S. seller that will only ship to the U.S. You can ship it to our warehouse, and we will deliver it to your door anywhere in the world, or if you live in the area or it is a personal shipment, you can pick it up and declare it at the border yourself.
U.S. to U.S. shipping charges are sometimes free and always considerably less than shipping across borders. You can ship it to our warehouse, and we will deliver it to your door, or if you live in the area or it is a personal shipment, you can pick it up and declare it at the border yourself – saving international shipping costs.
You are a local Canadian and need something very quickly from the U.S. and want it delivered overnight from the U.S. If it is shipped to Canada – many carriers do not offer international overnight.
B) How do you use our warehouse?
Have your package addressed to –
YOUR NAME AND PHONE NUMBER HERE (i.e. – “John Smith 604.534.1234”) * Very Important to include your phone number!
You will tell us what you want done next –
a) Hold for pick up
b) Re-forward to another address.
We will calculate your charges.
C) Please note – this process is meant for infrequent importers. You do not need to have an account with us to use this process. If you have regular shipments and are a commercial business – please contact our warehouse & distribution team at 360.332.1016 for a full suite of solutions. Cross Dock, Pick N Pack, etc.
