I also have a parcel receiving service in the US (Point Roberts, WA, where you will need to drive through Canada in order to get to your American neighbours in other parts of the state). Yes, I can get KS stuff sent there with free shipping. But I am always subject to customs duty and taxes when I bring things back to Canada. It all depends on the whims of the border agent that sees you and the value of the goods you declare.

Usually if you have only a couple hundred dollars of stuff brought through, they don't care as long as it's not a restricted item because it's not worth their paperwork to get a couple tens of bucks in duty and tax. But if you declare many thousands of dollars of stuff, then be prepared to shell out. DF pledges to cover these duties and taxes as part of the shipping costs to Canadian addresses.

My main KS4 pledge is coming straight to by door in Canada. My smaller August pre-sale pledge I'll be picking up from Washington.

A forum update at one point screwed up links.

Hi GrumpyOne,

For Canadians, it is very helpful to have an american shipping address. My KS1 and KS2 orders were shipped to a Bostonian friend. KS3 was shipped directly to "valoria" in NYC after I asked Stefan nicely. KS4 was shipped to Elye who lives in Vermont. This way us Canadians avoided shipping fees. As someone already living in the states, I don't think you would benefit much from "joining" my merry group of Canadian DF fans.


It was only an offer for another stateside address for products to be shipped to if the need arose. Just looking out for my northern friends.

Hi everyone,

As every other kickstarter, I am organizing a consolidated single KS5 order for the Montreal/Quebec/Canada area. As usual, I will get our goodies shipped to an american friend to save on shipping fees and I will go grab the product next year when they are ready. Also, group ordering sometimes gets us better deals/access to better more expensive sets and sometimes also the sharing of single big add-ons between multiple customers. I believe I have an outstanding reputation on this forum and the 4 guys which year after year entrust their money with me can attest to my honesty.
Not sure where you're located or where your pick up point is but I'm in New Hampshire just about 200-miles from Montreal. Would be willing to work with people as well.

Hi Gryphon,

I unfortunately won't reship within Canada. May I suggest you contact jchunick who is a fellow Ontarian? Also, you could try to recruit other Canadians living in your area as I originally did for my merry band of 4 in the Montreal area by posting your request on the forum. Crossing the US border and staying there for more than 48 hours allows you to bring back to Canada 800$ worth of purchases tax free per person. As I have friends in the US, I'm just matching my visit with the collection of goodies. I provide my friend's address as the local US shipping address to avoid shipping fees. Alternatively, there are many drop points along the whole Canada-US border (including Buffalo) where you can have you DF stuff be delivered for you to go pick up by car. Good Luck!
