    r2-bike.com

    I just saw this website (assume it's in Germany) has some good pricing on stuff I'm looking for, but, the only shipping option is DHL. I'm in Canada so that might mean $$$ brokerage fees, since it doesn't say anything about "postal" on our end.

    Has anyone ordered from R2-bike to Canada and did you get hit with brokerage?

    Everytime it goes through DHL to Canada, you're getting hit by GST and the 9.99$ CAD handling fees.

    My experience is different. Shipped through DHL order always got handed over to Canada Post with no additional fees. Value of the package was usually the shipping cost.

    Mind I did not order from them for over a year already. Seems things might have had changed.

    If they hand-off to Canada Post who charge a fixed $8 handling fee, plus applicable taxes, no problem. I'm worried about "percentage-of-order-value" brokerage fees some couriers charge.
