Default Best way to have parts shipped from Canada?

Looking into having some parts shipped from Canada. Whats the best way to go about this? Any added fees that will be tacked on that I need to know about?

Canada isn't too bad.

USPS, FedEx and UPS all do a good job.

I find that UPS to Canada is consistently less than FedEx. Can't speak for from Canada.

Not sure if anyone else has experienced this, but years ago I got penalized pretty hard trying to return parts to a Canadian vendor. It's like there's an "import tax" for anything traveling back across the border, even if it's not a net new purchase/shipment.

Yah, my Canadian barrier buyers pay a customs fee at the boarder.
