Default Where to buy maintenance items

Hey

So I want to buy a new air filter, oil filter and some other small things for my volvo. I went on IPD and they had everything but, there was like 30$ shipping on 13$ of stuff. I'm in Canada. Is there anywhere where I can buy things but pay more than double on shipping?

I like FCP Euro. Not sure if it applies to Canada but they have free shipping over $50 in the US.

You can check RockAuto, I got wiper blades for $1.64 a set one time.

Make friends in blaine?

(Not entirely joking)

Dealership prices on some stuff is comparable once you do the math.
Maintenance stuff anyway, I've never tried to order anything crazy.

You have Wal-Mart up north?

I get my oil and antifreeze there.

Rockauto does ship to Canada. I had a bunch of small stuff (cap & rotor, air filter, thermostat, etc) recently shipped for about 13 bucks. But, when purchasing multiple items, make sure they are all coming out of the same warehouse, or shipping gets pricey. Same with heavy items like brake rotors. Amazon.ca doesn't have too much to offer, mainly overpriced parts from third party sellers.

Since I am reasonably close to the border, I often will order bigger stuff through Amazon.com or Rockauto and have it shipped to a parcel receiving place just over on the US side. I'll then walk across and pick it up.

I'll probably go with Rockauto. I'm from Coquitlam, BC. How many days did it usually take if you don't get it shipped to the US side?

My last order took about 10 days from a warehouse in California to my door in Maple Ridge.

Same order would have been about 3-4 days shipped to Sumas.
