What is the closest american UPS/FedEX station to the Canada/US Border?



Hello people... I've got a question for all of you that buy from the US and live in the GTA.

Does anyone ever ship something to a FedEX or UPS or USPS location just south of the border and drive over to pick it up and bring it back? If so, where are these outlets located? what address do you give the shipper? will these places hold your stuff for you until you pick it up?

If they stop you, forget about returning to the United States

all over any greyhound bus stop is a drop off
also try freight trains or see if a shipping company like yellow transport can squeeze them in a truck for you
