  • Geez... you Canadians piss off everyone.

    Was searching around for a collet closer and came across this on ebay:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hardinge-Sjo...-/110781278248

    If you look towards the middle of the page, just above the pictures of the collet closer for sale there is a description along with a note to Canadians.

        Hmmm. 99.6% positive feedback out of 3355 sales, that means 14 or 15 of his customers have given him grief??????

          I've seen several guys like that on Ebay. I've bought several items from "power-boater" & he won't ship to Canada. Maybe postal related as there does seem to be a lot easier here?

            I must be missing something. In the section on "all feedback" it shows for the last 12 months 310 positive, 2 neutral and 1 negative.

            Sending to Canada is not difficult. Fill out the tag that goes on the parcel to state what it contains. About 5 words will do for a simple single item. "Machine tool, lathe collet chuck" + the declared value. The buyer is responsible for duty and taxes, not the seller.

              Only if you use US Mail. If you use UPS or FedEx it is a freeking nightmare.

                The solution to that seems obvious.

                  We have loads of trouble sending to Canada.
                  For a start we can only use Royal mail or carriers. RM will only ship 2Kg max and this is to do with the Canada end, it's 4Kg anywhere else.

                  If we use DHL or Fedex the user gets raped on the Canada end for fees and duty, not our problem but we get bad feedback because of it.

                  Last problem is missing items. Daughter used to make costume jewelery and because she had to declare what was in the parcel on the CN22 none and I repeat none of the Canadian parcels arrived so she refused to sent to Canada and Italy which has the same problem.

                        Aside from the BS about Canadians, did anyone else notice the photo that shows the close up of the engraved "Hardinge Brohters"?

                          The seller was up front about why at least. Most sellers just say no sales to Canada.

                            There's a max weight limit of 64 lbs on US Postal Service International Packages.

                            I've been burned with UPS packages going to Canada. It's not the fault of Canada or Canadians, obviously, it's the racket the carriers have with custom's brokerage fees.

                            In the case of Ebay sellers, the most common scenario is that they ship the package to a Canadian buyer, the buyer gets hit with a customs brokerage fee, and they take it out on the seller with negative feedback.

                              Who says it has anything to do with shipping, he clearly states that he does not like their attitudes...
