From the time they receive them until I got them back was about 30 total days. Also I didn't have to pay duty on them as they are good returning to me. There is also KSA grading in Canada. I have heard good things about them but then again they are not Beckett. KSA is based out of BC and Ontario.
You have to put the cards value (for insurances purposes when in transit) and some of the cards I want graded have a bv of 400. For 20 cards it was going to cost me around 400 dollars. If it was just under 500 for 50 so I'd do it. It's expensive, but the value the cards could garner afterwards is worth it.

KSA grades cards too easily I've heard. I think Punk_o_holic posted on the previous page about them.

That's pretty impressive.
