Hi

I just ordered some items from tennis warehouse. They have a very friendly staff! Anyway, I wasn't aware of this but what are the brokerage fees involved in shipping items across the border. I chose to ship with fedex international express. Anyone have any experience with this?

thanks

Maybe you should change to USPS. I was only charged GST and handling fee with USPS.

id be careful either way. first off TW overcharges, second off you cant get nike shipped here and third, you have to pay RIDICULOUS fees each time. i bought a pair nike breathes frees a while ago. $100 - reasonable for nike and tennis stuff. then 18.50 shipping....then 20$ canadian for customs or whatever.....and bam, thats 170 canadian ish, thats more than i wanted to pay for sure.. :>

These guys got it right. NEVER USE FEDEX OR UPS. They will both charge you a "brokerage fee" for "preparing paperwork" so your item can cross the border. Complete BS. Add on top the pst/gst/$5 handling fee and it's cheaper by far here - except if you are buying something like a POG longbody or other TW exclusive. USPS does not charge this fee.
