I used to have a mailing address in Pembina, North Dakota. That's where I had it shipped.
I hear you about UPS. THEY BRING THE SUCK
. Even a $20 item, they charge $40 brokerage fees.
I buy allot of stuff from the US and usually I ask the sellers to use FedEX or even USPS. Most sellers will agree as they WANT THE SALE
! I found it never hurts to ASK!!
