Yes - it does ship to Oakville then to you, so you won't get a tracking # or ship notification until that final ship.
I think I actually had my books before I was notified about the final ship!

|Oh great. My books will get to collect dust for months in Oakville again until Steve decides to meander over the border someday and send them.|

|My January Order has been in ship to Canada for 13 weeks and counting. My February order has been in "Labels" since about mid June.

|That BB60 is a very cool looking book!
A few questions for the Canucks.
1) If you have shipped directly to Dallas, is it easier dealing with UPS or Fedex or CanadaPost?
2) Related to #1, for the customs forms I assume we can state that these are documents with no commercial value? If you throw on $3000 in insurance coverage does that then undermine that case? Sheesh. I am not even sure what I am asking at this point as the online shipping form wasn't very clear about what to do with your own property.
3) Has anyone tried using the US form for Canadian (Oakville) submission? I want to grade screen a few books and the Canadian form won't allow it. Did the switching forms strategy work? If so, CBCS ships back direct rather than through the Canadian office?
4) Not really important but after reading the above on taxes and duties, shouldn't we have to pay taxes on the cost of slabbing, pressing etc.? Both of those are good and services and it would seem they are taxable. Or no?
Thanks for the help.

Don't bother adding extra insurance, UPS insurance doesn't cover used items or collectables. Talk to your insurance broker to see if your home insurance could cover it or look into collectable specific insurance.
Usually the only charge you see when the books come back is $25 for customs brokerage payable to FedEx. You usually can get that waived if you try hard enough.
