Parcel Receiving at Bellingham

looking to get some power tools from US.
anyone have experience with any receivers in bellingham?
Seems like Pak Mail is popular and has decent reviews. Any similar stores?

not interested in picking up from pt roberts (yes it's closer)

At Point Roberts you usually don't get taxed at customs assuming it isn't a big purchase... should keep that in mind.

I drive there all the way from Coquitlam and always worth it.

I use hagen's of blaine. but ever since they implemented a $10/year membership fee on top of their normal fees, they are not as cheap compared to other companies in blaine

sorry..i did search first and i thought they were all for pt roberts..not sure why blaine didn't cross my mind.

I dug through the old threads and it seems as if the security issues have been resolved. But none of the threads mentioned which place in Blaine doesn't charge annual fees (for now it's just a one time thing for me)

hagen's does membership now, as does i think all other places, but if you only want to do a 1 time shot, they allow you to do it if you dont want to join the membership i believe. there is an additional fee on top of the receiving fee, which basically makes the cost double. so if it's $2.50 to receive and you're not a member and want to do a 1 time thing, it will be $5.00. check out their website for more details.

"Have you seen my package?"
or
"Are you holding on to my package?"

^^ I make sure my packages arrive with the biggest box possible, so the cute girl ask, "is this your BIG package?"

And then I make her open it!

I think all the places are charging the annual fee. I just noticed the other day that my usual place (Security Mail Services) was doing the same thing. (I overheard them as a new person was signing up). $10/year registration (it was $10 lifetime before).

Bumping this back up for more up to date information.

I don't know when this change was made, but Hagen's now charges $2.50 on top of the $5 for non-members for email notification when your package arrives. It's time to look into a cheaper alternative......

Anyone know what the rates are at Security Mail Services and mailboxes international?

I use this company if I'm not shipping to Point Roberts:
Can Amer Freight - Warehousing and Freight Services in Blaine, WA

You don't need to be a member. Just send there and go pick up. Just track your package...
