Ok, I told myself I'd never do thids again, but there is a board I WANT in Canada. I just don't want to go through the circus and BS and ridiculous charges again that I had to endure last year. This included UPS calling me a month after the sale with a bill for $75 for import charges or something - AFTER I returned a damaged board to the seller. The shipping alone through UPS was $75 and then, because it was shipped from Canada, I had to deal with CAN UPS when there was a problem, and they had NO info on the US side of things - which seemed absurd to me.
Anyway - what is the best way to ship a 185cm board? What is the best service (NOT UPS) to use?
Insurance wise - how do I keep from getting in the situation I had last year where I had it insured, but the seller paid the shipper the insurance fee and UPS woulkd only give the insurance $$ to them, so when it arrived damaged I had to get the insurance dollars from the seller, who claimed the board was not damaged and at first would not return my money and then returned only part of it with her "costs" deducted.
