    BD Shipping to Canada?

    Any Canadians here get a bike shipped to Canada from BD?
    The web site says you have to use a middleman. Looks like a pain.

    It is...

    Not only will they not ship to Canada, they only ship to the confirmed address on the credit card. If you know someone close to the border, they can buy the bike and take receipt of it for you. You then pick up (dropping off a case of real beer, and the money you owe them), and drive it back.
    It's only pain......

    I just shipped to UPS store over the border and picked it up on Saturday. Few hours wasted on the border due to Americans cavity searching everyone. But generally not too bad. Would do it again.

    I picked mine up at a UPS store in the US as well. Didn't have any issues getting it back into Canada. You have to phone to place the order.

    Do you have to make any special arrangements with the UPS store before having it shipped there?

    bumping this

    Did you guys declare the bike when crossing the border?

    If so, did you simply pay duty (GST/PST or now HST) ?

    Any other charges?

    I'm considering a Moto from Bikes Direct as well as several other bikes that don't ship to Canada....Yeti, Rocky Mountain and Fox forks.

    Thanks
