I live in Canada and I'm ordering from ans gear. I want to know if USPS is necessary for shipping to Canada. The reason I ask is because it costs 89$ for shipping. Compared to 50 for fed ex

That is shocking that USPS is more expensive then fedex.. I ordered from ANS recently (also live in Canada) and I just used the standard USPS shipping, and it was pretty quick... What are you buying if you dont mind me asking?

Dude, I have ordered 3000$ or more on Ansgear and the most I ever paid for shipping was USPS Express to Canada which was 50$ and that's when I bought a marker. You are most likely trying to buy Paintballs (I find this makes things cost a ton) and indeed bumps the price up...

Wow, you're right. Shipping is pricey. I just got the same cart as you and cheapest shipping method is 50.70$ Gobal Mail to Ontario. Most expensive was 76.45$ but think about it, you ordered a ton of stuff, therefore they will need an extremely large box. There's also a lot of weight to it so if you were ordering a little less, of course it would be cheaper.

Hey guys problem solved haha. I was informed exalt is Canadian so it's a lot cheaper for shipping. Thanks for all the help though :)

That's also going to make my ans gear cart smaller

Only reason I would ever move to the States is for their very loose firearms laws! :) Owning a SAW machine gun legally would be nice. ;)

The thing with Fedex and UPS is you will get hit with "brokerage fees" which is really a getting it through customs fee. USPS has an arrangement with Canada Post and no brokerage fees.
