    Hi,

    I'm thinking about ordering some stuff from outpost.com. There only shipping option to Canada is with DHL.

    I called both DHL and outpost regarding brokerage fees. Of course DHL wasn't helpful at all and outpost didn't know anything regarding a brokerage fee. I did a google search and found mixed results regarding DHL, but not a set fee.

    Anyone here have any exp. with DHL to Canada?

    FYI. The items will come up $30US + $19 for DHL shipping.


    I just don't want to get pegged $50 like I did with UPS

    I'd give them a call back and be more persistant to talk to someone who DOES know.

    I don't know about Canada, but we ship a lot of documents into Mexico and DHL is VERY reliable, definitly moreso than UPS.

    I know with USPS the fee is $5 and UPS is $50 (yeah I got burned)

    I'm just trying to figure out DHL price.


    OK I just talked to someone that hopefully knew. $5 to $10 for extra fee's +customs.


    OK. First person I talked to her english was pretty good, and seemed proficient in what was doing couldn't give a est. of the fee. (didnt know and/or too lazy to find out)

    Second person her english wasn't the greatest. I was like.. oh god!! wasted call. She ended up giving me a $5 to $10 est. Not too shabby.

    I'm debating about calling back a third time just incase. I just don't want to get burned like I did with UPS.
