There is a loop hole go to Buffalo and get a mailbox from UPS Store. have DDM Shipp to your mailbox in buffalo. This will come in handy not only for your DDM order but all your shipping needs when your buying from companies and people in America.

735 Delaware Rd, Tonawanda, NY, United States‎ - (716) 873-9107
2316 Delaware Ave, Buffalo, NY, United States‎ - (716) 877-7711

Many many locations in that area Just google search UPS Stores Buffalo NY

I spoke to Leif at DDM a few days ago, and they will still ship the bumpers to Canada, but you have to have your own UPS or FEDEX account. There were some mixups with regards to unpaid brokerage fees and costs, and DDM ended up stuck with the bill. I guess when the recipient doesn't pay the fees, the eller (DDM) gets held accountable. With your own account, you are 100% responsible for your fees and there is no way they will be charged the $$$. Personally, I just ship stuff to Niagara Falls, NY and pick it up myself.

I think it's because of "Canadian DDM tuning suppliers" asked DDM tuning not to send items to Canada since they can't run their business.

Now we have another person in middle.

Before: DDM tuning - custom - you

now: ddm tuning - custom - supplier - you

simply supplier's want to earn money from you.

I was thinking the exact same thing Someone in Canada or even in Ontario is messing things up for all of us.... Some guy on maxbimmer posted a link to a Kijji listing that was very similar to DDM's Prices and inventory

It only takes one or two to screw things up for everyone else. Same thing happened with the Buffalo Gun shop. They used to export firearms to the border for transfer but something happened and they no longer provided that service.
