what are your favorite sources for parts (new or used) in canada? i went to rockauto today and found that shipping to canada was as much as the part, and i know that UPS charges outrageous prices for customs brokerage (fed ex too?) many suppliers wont ship USPS so my source for parts is limited to what i can find here locally. any CANADIAN internet parts sources?
thanx

Canadian online auto parts? Never found one...

Assuming that the location in your profile is accurate, you're about 2 1/2 hours from Burlington, VT. Have you considered having USA retailers ship items to the UPS Store in Burlington, then going for a drive? Fuel & border fees often beat the crap out of cross-border shipping rates, especially when dealing with bulky and/or heavy items.

If I buy from them, I buy $500 at a time, so it costs less in shipping than many small orders.

I was at $799.50 for 10 marker kits plus shipping which was 185$... I really dont see how you could get a special shipping cost at $500 ??

I mean that a $70 shipping is 14% of $500 of parts, but 100% of $70 of parts.

I'm lucky! I live 10 minutes from the border so 99% of my stuff comes from the states. i assume that there would be a UPS in one of those small towns just over the border from where you are. Try having stuff shipped to one of those. You'll save a bundle and that leaves more $$$$ for the Fiero.

dont get me started on the fiero store. i bot 60$ worth of poly, and i figured that 20$ shipping was worth it, then UPS tacked on 30$ of customs brokerage to the bill ( and 9$ for ottawa). 30$ FOR CUSTOMS BROKERAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! highway robbery, ill never do business with UPS again, and ill try to find another source before ill buy from the fiero store.

You just got burned by the brown? I learned that lesson years ago....

Most US guys love the site of the UPS truck pulling up, I cringe and cuss a few bad words and reach deep for my wallet. One guy though he would do me a favor and use UPS instead of mail like I asked. That was a $45 bonus.

Sucks that you have to email every US ebay seller and ask for usps.

There are a few tricks to saving a bit on UPS. Cant remember all the details but i think it was if it was shipped air or expedited and the value was less than a certain amount. Just email those greedy bastards to get the correct details.

Agree -- brokerage fees suck.

But I have a friend who lives just over the border, which also significantly reduces shipping costs. Cannot believe how much they charge to ship to Canada. You guys in the US have a bargoon when it comes to shipping costs.

Check out Salmon Fireos in Brockville, ON - he has a graveyard of Fiero's for parts http://web.ripnet.com/~fieroparts/fiero_parts.htm

And it's not just shipping, but we get screwed for parts here as well.

I walked into my local parts store to buy a 1st gen Fiero clutch master cylinder. They wanted $180 Canadian.

Autozone across the border in Plattsburgh, NY: $30 US IIRC. I made a 4-hour total road trip out of it.

Oh yeah, I HATE UPS.

Hehe it was quite the adventure driving my Fiero clutchless from Montreal down to Plattsburgh, (it's my only car)
