i live in canada and am looking at buying a prophesy off ebay...only problem is the only ones ever available are in the U.S

 

does anyone have experience with by stuff over the border ? and if so, how long does it usually take to recieve the package, and how much do you get charged with custom fees ?

well, shipping to canada is cheap. i've got an account, so i can ship fedex ground to canada AND i save 10% by printing my own bar codes/shipping labels...so if you buy something and wanna save some bucks, send me an email and we can work out some sort of shipping deal-eo.

 

customs is tricky. you can have the sender mark the item as a "gift" and thus no customs are due...but if the item gets damaged in transit, you'll have no way to recoup expenses...or something like that. i always pay customs AND get insurance, just in case. better safe than sorry. i bought a $600 eq from the uk and paid something like 50 bucks in customs fees. no big deal, i guess.
