Default I know this is a long shot, but anybody coming to alberta doing a land crossing?

So, the old rock auto has some 4x4 fenders that i sure could use...... but i don't wanna drop 700 on shipping. Anybody doing a land crossing and wanna bring some up? Dealers choice of beers and willing to throw cash at it as well.

Ancestors went the other way across that border; no plans on us going back, not at least until global warming really kicks in. :-)

Long ago I bought new fenders via eBay for only $25 each. But shipping was $35+ each, if I'm remembering correctly. Fit quite well for aftermarkets.

There is a service right near the border in British Columbia called Ship Happens, and they do receiving and shipping for US deliveries. Maybe you can find a similar service in Alberta.

Do they do crossings then? Cause it's the shipping to getem into canada is the expensive part, and if im paying 7 hundred, i might as well get em to my door e instead of a down there. Hmmmmm, shit gawd daymn

maybe repost/re-ask it and see if any pnw/sea-tac guys would take them to BC and ship them to you once they were on the northside....more members close by BC and more crossing traffic there than alberta, i bet. or ask one of the michigan members? worth a shot.

where are the minnesota/wisconsin guys at?

I think that's what they do, yes. You buy something from the US, ship it to them, they bring it across the border into Canada and then you can pick it up or have it shipped to your house. I've never used them before though, so I could be wrong. I would contact them and ask.
