      Whatever you do, never use UPS when shipping to canada. They always charge a ridiculous duty fee. Sometimes more than what the item is worth. I've never had this problem with USPS/Canada Post

        If no one from the future stops you from doing it, how bad of a decision can it really be?

          I sold an item on ebay to a Canada buyer. I took out insurance on it to protect us both. He contacted me later and said he had to pay a duty on the shipment because of the insured value. Just something to consider. Otherwise, like xpnsyd said, just fill out the custom papers and describe the contents.

            We've had a lot of problems with UPS and their "extra" charges... and not just on car parts. It may take a little longer but I would recommend using USPS when at all possible. Just my 2cents worth.

              When bringing a US made product back to the US from Canada, there is a form to fill out. Don't remember the number, it's been afew years. There should not be a duty fee either.
