What is the total shipping cost to Canada?
Discount Ramps.Com, LLC ships products to Canada on a daily basis. We charge actual shipping rates based on dimensions and weight of the product(s). Discount Ramps receives a large volume discount through UPS and we pass that discount on to our customers. Our products are shipped through UPS common carrier or a variety of freight companies for oversized products. Why do we use UPS vs. USPS? We chose UPS because we have a daily pick-ups at our multiple warehouses allowing us to ship orders much quicker than driving to the Post Office and waiting in line, many of our products are too large to ship through USPS, UPS has a much more advanced tracking system allowing the customer and Discount Ramps to estimate delivery dates and trace the package from start to end. We have encountered many problems in the past using USPS including lost or damaged packages so we have chose to ship all packages UPS or freight. Please call us at 262-338-3431 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a shipping quote. Please include your ship to Postal Code and Providence if emailing us.
Will I have to pay customs brokerage fees to Canada?
