Parts across the boarder
Here's my story. Our 9680 Ford tractor had a leak in the rad. Took it out and took it to a repair shop, he said by the time he fixes it with a re-core, will be around $3000. Told me to look around and see what a new one would cost, searched around and a new one is around $6500, or a re-core for about $4000. Thought wow, that sucks. Looked online and found one at a store in the States called Allstate Ag Parts, I believe it was, and their price is about $1800 USD, oc around $2300 CAN. Only downside is they don't ship directly to Canada so they said if I could line up a broker to get it into Canada, they could get their shipper to get it to the boarder and they could work it out. Seemed confusing to me, so am going to call him back again tomorrow and see what he means again. I can get it shipped to a guy that does brokering just south of the boarder by Dunseith and I could pick it up there, only problem is my passport has expired. I phoned Purolator and UPS, but they were not very helpful, I kind of thought this was up their alley, but I guess not. How do you guys that get stuff across the boarder all the time go about doing so? Has anyone here dealt with Allstate Ag? And why the he!! is there such a price difference between the two countries for parts? Any help would be appreciated.
It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!
