"Ship It To Us"

Post by vjb_7 »

Does anyone know of a company or individual that picks up parcels from "Ship It To Us" https://shipittous.com/
And brings them back over the border to the Canadian side for people? We would be happy to pay for this service.

They used to be called Betta's, didn't they?

It would be great if someone did pickups from them to over the border. Some enterprising person in Osoyoos ought to look into that.
I haven't failed until I quit.

That could be a risky business.

Border guard. "whats in all those boxes?"
Company. "I have no idea. None of them are mine."
Border guard. "pull in over there and bring in all the boxes. We'll be opening them. And the appropriate duties and taxes will be charged.
And if theres anything illegal.... "[icon_lol2.gif]

Betta passed away from cancer during Covid and they sold to "The Shipping Post of Oroville".
About a block closer to the border on the other side of the street.
Nice guy easy to deal with and friendly.

There are 2 companies on the Canadian side of the border in Osoyoos, who work with all of the companies in Oroville that can bring it across for you.
Summit Brokers has offices in Kelowna and Vernon.
Worldwide customs Brokers has an office in Kelowna.
Average cost for small packages for either of them is about $75 and may include shipping to you from there.

Otherwise if you want you can go down and bring it back yourself. Just be prepared to go inside and do up your own B3 form and pay the GST. Really simple if you have your own business license and your GST number.
And the trip to Osoyoos is always fun.

Been there and back more than 30 times in the last 5 years and no hassles at all.
But I have a business and GST number so I do it 'commercially' :130:

Thanks so much for all the info you passed onto us here

Doesn’t look that promising for us once-in-a - blue moon shoppers, does it?

I agree, visiting USA is fun and diversionary, but even the thought of driving through Kelowna 2x is a real put off for those of us living in further away towns. I truly do envy those who live in Osoyoos.
