    Does anyone have any recent experience with Strobes n More shipping to Canada? I tried a search and came up with some posts dating back to 2007.

    I want to purchase some equipment from them as their pricing seems fairly decent but am a bit unsure of shipping costs and brokerage fees for products coming to Canada. As well, does anyone know if the "free shipping" applies to shipments here?

    Thanks in advance!!

    I'm sure they'll answer you on here... Enter the Promo Code "plowsite" and I'm sure it maybe discounted. You can also give them a call and ask them!

    If they ship UPS, expect a rather nasty surprise either at time of delivery or about 2 weeks later. Get them to ship USPS at all costs. UPS minimum brokerage fee is $50.00.

    I learned that over the years also. USPS is the best way to ship into Canada.:drinkup:

    :dizzy::dizzy::dizzy: I'm going to toss me 2 cents worth in.. 1.35 canadian... Just reading what's posted on here... The shipping problem to Canada isn't the problem of Strobes n More but the shipping companies in general. USPS probably won't insure a light bar of that cost. UPS is the cheapest of the freight for lightbars to NS... I checked earlier tonight.. Fed Ex -Ground... about $40 more than UPS. Less insurance to and no exact delivery date.

    Ok...These companies charge out rediculous freight charges due to crossing the border...Why? Because they can! They have to protect themselves due to things getting damaged and people coming back on them.

    When it comes to the Blame Game... SNM/Louis didn't start it. You ask and you ordered. I'm sure that you could have found a place up there that might sell you something you can use.

    If you go to EBAY Canada I'm sure you can find some Chinese Junk that will be shipped USPS and I'm sure it may get there in a couple pieces but you get what you pay for.

    Please lets not down the man for trying to get you the bar that you wanted for a decent price. I think you may have wanted the "Free Shipping" Well your north of the border and I'm sure that's not what they had in mind.

    Now please lets get on with our normal business...

    Sorry for the rant. :yow!:
