ok so my stuff is supposed to arrive this Thursday.  Anyone have anything they need picked up, or wants to head down this weekend of the 26th (provided my package does indeed arrive)?

    Iím planning to head down to Pembina Parcel hopefully Thursday evening (tonight) if not Friday. If anyone needs something picked up in the Pembina area shoot me a PM with a phone number. I planned to run a small car out, but if someone has a big order (tires etc) I could run a truck out for a few extra bucks.

                Gimme a pm if you plan on it.  Or someone else pm me as well if you are going.  If no one is going by friday night, I might go myself saturday morning.  I'd rather not as I have a ton of work to do around the house.

                        Well if the rim was manufacured out of the contienent you pay 6.1% = $36.60
                        Taxes %12 = $72.00
                        Parcel fee = $20.00 I think*

                        I am looking to buy some rims from the states, they discontinued the sizes I want.

                            looks like i would have saved almost a $100 if i just picked it up at the border oh well, next time i buy a set of rims from the states i'll just get it ship there and pick it up my self.

                            btw, what size and rims are you looking into buying?

                              17 or 18. However I need crazy positive offset to fit and at stock height right now. Might hold off till next summer.

                              Want something classic like Enkei, Volks, Gramslight, but the bf is very particular.

                                FYI: Highway is closed.  I know it is spitting distance to Menkes (plus the border people at Gretna are super-friendly), but you'll probably have to use the Pembina crossing if you are going any time soon.

                                  Anyone going to Pembina or Neche (Menkes) this weekend?  I have a few odds and ends that are at Menkes.

                                            this is an extremely stupid question but I have to know. How much do you save in shipping by driving to the boarder to get your item?

                                              Depends on what shipping and taxes cost.

                                                For me if the difference between shipping to Canada verses USA is over $25.00USD then I ship to Pembina Parcel and pick it up. I usually have several things there to make the trip worth while.

                                                  And some places don't ship to Canada.  I just picked up a set of tail lights for my car, which few people in Canada have.  And the whole set shipped was $80.  I also picked up a toner refill kit for my laser printer which I haven't found yet in Canada.  If I were to buy new toner refills for CMYK it would be upwards of $400.  $90 shipped to the border.  Shipping to here would have been at least $50+ whatever brokerage fees the shipping company would choose to charge.
