Its all about what you need done. Ya UPS and DHL are a scam coming into the country, they get fucked by the government for competing with Canada Post. For a regular hobby purchase its crazy but they serve a business sector that loves them. We get confused by these high rates and (to us) last minute charges but not the guy doing shipping and receiving for any asian car company without a manufacturing plant on continent. He tells his customers that they will have to pay out the ass for special importation of parts not on this continent.
Just my opinion on UPS in general.
