always go in the mornings since there will be less of a wait at borders and less waiting to pick up your package

Went today (Sunday) to pick up from PR Shell. Mid-day around 12:30pm; 15 mins going in, 5 mins going out.

Used p2p for the first time, since I had a large but light package. Things went smooth, no issues or complaints, and they charged me just by the actual weight like they said they would. I would re-use them in the future for similar situations, but will stick with PR Shell for my regular things.

Is there a shop in Blaine like P2P or the letter carrier?
I went to Pt Roberts last week and the regular line was moving faster than the nexus lane going into the USA.
That never happens at Blaine.

so today i got an email from tsb saying I have a brown envelop package to pick up. I haven't ordered anything, nor am I expecting anything... so what do i do? I don't wanna have to go and pick up junk. I do have to pick up something from PRShell but I usually go on sundays when TSB is closed. Can I just tell them to throw it out or return to sender? I don't even recognize the sender.

Maybe someone else with the same name as you had a package delivered to TSB and since you registered, they thought it's you and emailed you. Just let them know it's not you and hopefully the person that it actually belongs to will go pick it up.

You should get a notification if you haven't signed a waiver and they've received a package for you. Just sign it next time you're there to pick up the package and be on your way.

I have a bicycle coming in. It's a fairly light bike, so I hope it falls under 25 pounds so I only have to pay 3.50 for a big-ass box!

You sign the waiver in person the first time you pick something up.

Yep pretty much. Sign up for an account, they will email you when your stuff arrives. Go pick it up and pay the charge: depending on size and all.

Be careful with Point2Point. I used them for many years and have always been happy with them. I was there 5 weeks ago and used my credit card to pay for my charges as I always do. The only other place I used my card that day was to was to fill up with gas while done there. My credit card number was stolen the same day and random purchases were made the same day in New York. Visa covered it and sent me a new card. I figure it was the gas station. Two days ago I went down to Point Roberts and used my credit card once again at Point2Point but nowhere else. Visa just called me and told me the exact same thing happened again. It was the same staff member helping me each of those days.

Not denying your story, but unless you're running a business through a US shipper, why don't you just use cash? Most people pick up about 5 packages at a time and it shouldn't cost more than 20 bucks per trip.

hey everyone,

Im newbie here
Would anyone provide some hints on how to get package ship to PR

what is the less expansive shipping office in PR, how much
how does the shipping office in PR contact me when the package ready pick up
if relative ships a package of gift from outside America to PR, do I need to pay tax and duty custom at the border back to bc

Thank uuu!

Strong first post. All of the information is in this thread...

It all depends on the package weight and size. Different places have different hours. Do some research to see which one works best for you.

Depending on how much you bring back you're supposed to get taxed on the items but sometimes they let you go to save the paperwork.

with the bridge on I5 collapsed, i am wondering how much of a disruption there will be for deliveries to PR. I am crossing my fingers, because it might get real bad.
