purple ball bullet  NOTES:

Please, do avoid shipping by UPS - it does not deliver directly to our town, handing it over to another courier.
Mostly Purolator whose local depot is at Lytton First Nations band office.
More handling, more chance of problems.
I have cross over by the ferry to drive to town to pick up your package in person when the truck arrives.
Same goes with FedEx. This one will deliver to town, but also has no depot here. Delivery pickup will include delays.
If you have no choice but use UPS for cross border shipping your knife, this method will cost you quite a bit of money without any extra benefits, and your package goes again through unnecessary hands.
Sometimes the package gets stuck at the Customs broker, so international shipping takes much longer both ways.

Note about the shipping to my US address:
Because the international shipping has become supper expensive, and such a pain in the butt, I have established my mail box in the US. During past couple of years I traveled cross border from spring to fall once a month. The US domestic shipping is much cheaper and faster then international (cross border) shipping.
If you are not in a hurry for your knife return, it would be returned on my next trip - about a month or so.
Use the Priority mail - for most knives a padded prepaird envelope is about $10, has tracking number, and a basic insurance too.
Returning the knife from the US takes about 2-4 days depending on your location, and your knife goes through fewer hands.
To bring your package home - it still goes through Customs in my possession, and if asked I have to produce the shipping list with the value of your knife.
It is really not an "Import" item as it is not a purchase, and is returning back to USA.
Note with the description of the repair, and your mailing/contact information - the knife has NCV (No Commercial Value).
Fill out the customs shipping form CP-72. All values will be $1.00 ($0.00 - zeros are not allowed).
Include the form, note and payment inside your package.

In this case there is no need to read the rest of the instructions, just for yuor information if you like
