I made a little experiment with a few people and we tried to buy a shitload of items in bulk and have them shipped to the border. If I would have shipped the items cross border it would have cost more than $400 in shipping and duties for my parts alone. Given the amount ordered (close to 450 pieces and 1000 LED bulbs). The total could had easily been $600 in duties and shipping)
Now it cost 4 people, $43 to ship to a warehouse, $20 for storage, $6 bucks to cross the bridge (back and forth), $130 in taxes, $20 in gas for about $219 in fees.
Going to be doing another run in late spring and hopefully get more people involved and really stick it to the man.
