If you're willing to generate the shipping label from NY to Toronto, i can help you out. UPS preferred since there's one close by. Hate dealing with international shipping as if i fill it out wrong you may get hit with customs fees.

Careful using UPS. They've been adding a "Customs Brokerage Fee" to packages. I dont know when they started doing this, but its a stupid amount of money.

Theres articles about how to avoid paying it by "self-clearing" your items coming into Canada.

Wow, that sucks and sounds like a pain. Seems like the link the other poster posted above may be the way to go.

Yeah. I'd advise to just not use UPS. Other carriers don't do this.

I didn't even know it was a thing until I shipped out some springs last week and got a notice from UPS that "Fees were due" for the recipient. Thinking it was just duties, I looked at it. For something that was valued at $100, the duties were under $10, and the UPS "broker fees" were $32 (USD).

Too bad about COVID killing USPS, I have shipped Internationally for the last 11 years and could easily do this for you. Unfortunately, USPS is so slow on International right now that you could walk there, pick up your package, and walk home before it'd arrive.

And UPS is just stupid expensive.
