    Which is the least expensive, reliable medium to ship used racquets to Canada from the US? Is it FedEx Ground International? How about all the scare about the whopping Customs Charges that could be imposed on you?

    Can anybody share their experiences around this, please?

    Thanks.

    usps is good and cheap. it was $20 to ship 2 racquets priority mail with insurance and clearing charges were $8 plus some small taxes. i don't think there's any clearing charges if you ship usps standard,

    forget to add that ups and fedex have fairly hefty customs clearing fees.

    the only downside of usps is the lack of tracking if you use one of their cheaper services. i had a bad experience with usps standard on a stringing machine with took 30 days to arrive (no clearing charges though). go to the usps website and look for your "best" shipping option.
