I had forgotten a laptop while visiting a friend in Canada and had it shipped by my friend from Canada to the US. Was told it would cost about $40, including purchased insurance.
What they didnt disclose was that upon delivery, the receiver (i.e., me) would have to pay additional money for what is called customs brokerage fees.
My used 3-yr old laptop is probably not worth more than $75, but I had to pay $56 to the UPS delivery guy.
Beware of UPS! I have had parcels from Hong Kong received here in the US without and fees required to be paid.
UPS is a rip-off!
