Where do you live?

  My total focus has been on signing up distributors in various countries so
that shipping
And handling is less.

Hi Everyone,

Just figured I would reply again to this to update everyone.  I wasn't home
that first day they tried delivering it (and left a note requesting $106 to
be ready for when they come again)...

The next day they came and said brokerage was $166, not $106 (moving the
brokerage fee from $58 to $118).  I sent them away, called around, and got
another broker to handle it.  It's going back to the border for
re-consignment and it'll be re-delivered to me.

I can't tell you how angry I am at UPS.  I've had items shipped via USPS
before and brokerage was very reasonable.  If you guys can switch, please

Best Regards,
Ben Cadieux
