Now you’re just rubbing it in. :( ;)

Very nice work. I saw Andy’s work and even Charles Neil approved. This also looks like he’d give his seal of approval. :)

I will get a weight of a bundle

I want to say
I will not be high grading these bundles
I will not open them because I know what’s in them (opened a few) and if I did open them nobody else would get any
I would keep them all

$614 to ship, and that’s without customs clearing. :(

I used to live on Vancouver Island, that would have made it so much easier.

I just went under FedEx’s LTL, as I’ve never booked a shipment before for a personal purchase. Would UPS, or someone else have a better rate?

Why in the world area you looking at LTL? That’s for bundles of lumber, palletized freight. These are 7”x21”x1/8” and go small package
If you ever do have a need for ltl send me a message,I live and breathe logistics and get good rates

It’s actually because the UPS and FedEx sites are rather confusing and only seem to list small packages. It took some poking around before I was able to find the LTL page. I also normally receive a lot of LTL and TL where I work, so it was familiar. However, if I do need to get some large lumber loads, I will definitely contact you.

Ok, ~59, which doesn’t seem to bad. I’m just going to check tomorrow to see if there is a customs broker fee, and if it looks good I’ll PM you.

Thanks for the help. But I still think it would be better if I was still in BC, I used to go to Tulalip a few times a year. :(

I’d love to buy one bundle from you. I’ll PM you; can pay to ship or may have my brother drive over – he works near Tacoma. Can you set aside one bundle for me?
Thanks!
