Karesen Bridal - shipping and Brokerage to Canada
Posted 13 September 2008 - 08:29 PM
I know a few of you have used Kaersen Bridal for your dresses and seem to have had good luck - I have finally found my dress, but am wondering how you found the brokerage?
I am in Canada, so not sure how it would compare to those of you in the States but would be interested in hearing.
Also which option did you use to get it shipped?
Thanks a bunch

My absolute #1 choice for shipping from the U.S. is
USPS Priority International (The prices are usually incredibly competitive - and I know that I will just get a slip in the mail to go pick up my parcel...not like other companies that try to deliver only during hours which I am working - then end up having to make special arrangements anyway)!. It is the only shipping method where I NEVER get nailed with big duties/brokerage/tax fees upon receipt.
I find FedEx and UPS the most expensive with those fees.
Hope this helps a bit.

Whenever possible get the vendor to ship USPS!

Not sure if this will help in this case since I don't know if your place ships from the US or not, but since you are in Vancouver, it is easy to go to Pt. Roberts to pick stuff up. There are a whole bunch of places there that you can have stuff shipped to and then you just pay a small fee to pick it up there (3.00USD for a package under 20lbs). This way you don't ever have to pay brokerage fees and only rarely will have to pay Duty... it all depends on which customs officer you have. Plus in pt. roberts the wait is NEVER more than 15 min to cross, so may be worth it! I have used Tsb Shipping Plus, LLC

That being said, if you are ordering a dress onlnie from Kaersen's I would bite the bullet and just go for whatever shipping they normally use. Just because they are used to shipping a certain way, I would not want to confuse them. And since it is coming from China, they might not has United States postal Services, and I would not trust their Chinese postal service.
Any other item coming from the US defeintly ship via USPS! I have even gone so far as to call Customer Service and requested it, when the online website did not
Best of luck!
