UPS super screws you on their 'border fees'.
It's happened to me twice and I plan on never doing it again.

I've emailed and/or phoned companies in the states to see if they will ship USPS to Canada even if it's a bit more. If they only ship UPS, I will look elsewhere.

USPS may charge you a $5 border fee and charge you for taxes; may not charge you anything. Usually on lower priced items there is no fees or taxes charged; higher priced items - it seems like a crap shoot. (still way better than UPS).
Same here. I never buy if they ship UPS.
