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!

Hi,

This is to say that I will once again organize a large Canadian KS3 order for the Montreal area. It will be tax-free, without shipping fees and at the cheaper price per building tier of the Empire pledge level. We're already a group of 4 people but there's room for more! Get in touch with me!

Cheers,

Your reference Sakabra seems much more accurate and reliable than what I remembered. Thanks!

For now, we\'re a group of 5 people going in for 15 Sets. Just contact me if you wanna join.

I\'m doing the same for a group of friends here in KW, having it shipped to family in Michigan and getting family here (who travels there for work frequently) to pick them up.

FYI: The official limits are $0 for under 24hrs, $200 for 24-47.99 hrs, and $800 for 48hrs or more, per person.

I\'m in - what I\'ll save on shipping means two painted water sets!

Thank you so much for doing this, biowizard!

Note that with the price of shipping, even someone as far as eastern Ontario can probably make this worth it if driving down to spend a day in Montreal sounds like fun. We have Le Valet d\'Coeur, after all.

Montreal area Free shipping, no tax KS to Canada

Hi fellow Montreal-area Canadians,

I\'ve been a long-time DF forum member and made more than fifty transactions here over the years including selling custom gelatinous cubes (viewtopic.php?f=13&t=8308). More recently, I\'m selling cut and polished acrylic rods to be used as Flight Stands (viewtopic.php?f=22&t=4477&p=77983&hilit ... and#p77983) for miniatures to represent levitation or flight (viewtopic.php?f=13&t=3604&p=77711&hilit=flight#p77711).

I am presently buying 10 painted Cavern kickstarter sets which I\'ll ask to be delivered to a friend of mine in the US from back in the days where I lived in Boston. This way, shipping will be free for me even if I live in Montreal and there won\'t be any import tax. This is absolutely legal given the 400$ per person per day spent in the US tax-free limit that was changed by the conservatives. If you would want to combine your order with mine, just email me (address found in the flight stand thread) and we can probably arrange something including me picking up your Sets for you in the US and you paying only 87.50$ US per Set (stretch goals included), even if you buy only 1 Set.

Cheers,
Bio
