How it Works

Signing Up

Sign up for an account

Once you have signed up you will have your own unique US address that you can use to receive or send goods from. Right away you will be able to send goods via any carrier verify your ID, address and sign the USPS 1583 (online or at our office) and you will be able to receive parcels and letter mail through the USPS as well.

Sending Mail

For Sending

  1. Print your FedEx, USPS or UPS postage as you normally would. This can be done through any of your current marketplace systems, or through a shipping vendor like Pirateship.com, Shippo.com or Stamps.com. Use your new US address as the "ship from" and return address.
  2. From your Border Giant dashboard, enter the shipment information. You can do this manually or upload shipments in bulk using any spreadsheet.
  3. Drop off the shipments at Border Giant's Thunder Bay office. We will transport them to the USA, clear them through US customs and deposit them with the proper carrier. That’s all to it!

** Currently Limited to Shipments $800 USD or less each

Receiving Mail

For Receiving

  1. Use your new U.S. address as your delivery address. Be sure to include the same name (business or personal) that you signed up with, along with the #123ABC assigned to you.
  2. When you know something is on its way, login to your Border Giant account, click on "Import Shipment" and enter the shipment information. You will need to upload an invoice showing the value and vendor information.
  3. When the shipment arrives at our US location it will automatically be cleared through Canadian Customs and delivered to our Thunder Bay Warehouse. You will receive an email that it is ready for pickup, along with the invoice for any duties and taxes collected.

“Border Giant’s services was a big, pivotal thing for us... We try to source locally as much as possible but there are a few things that we can only get in the US. Border Giant does 1-2 runs per week for us and it’s one less thing for me to have to worry about.”

“Before, I would bring parcels down to the border every week, do the paper work, and pay the export/import fees. Now Border Giant does everything for me.”
