ship to Buffalo?

Hey,
Does anyone know how I can get something shipped to Buffalo Ny? Lets say I want tires fm another member, do I have to get a temp P.O Box or something? Do you guys know of any places in Buffalo that does this? Also can I have him write something up so I don't pay full amount at the border as if it was brand new?

Thanks

There are a few places that do this.

You pay them per package. There is a limited amount of time they keep the package though. However its worth it in my opinion.

I can't remember the site - but people have listed it in this forum.

I FOUND IT: usaddressinc.com or something like that. http://www.usaddressinc.com/

or you can have it shipped to UPS in Niagara Falls New York on packard street or something. Only about 10 mins away from Queenston Lewiston Bridge. But they are very strict on holding times. If you do not pick it up in time, they will ship it back to the sender. They also have limited hours. You can also try a UPS store - but I hear a lot of UPS stores do not hold packages - well some of the ones I've called at least...maybe you'll have better luck.

Try Kinek (https://www.kinek.com/kpointC/Home.action). I had some wheels shipped to a depot in Maine. They hold the packages for up 30 days for only about $20. There are depots all along the U.S./Canada border.

I've used them too just recently for a couple of packages. Would use again.

Left a package there for over a month and it was still only $5.

They have set pricing on tires IIRC.

Its damaged and would need repair, best I could get for it is probably $50, so I'd probably leave it to the shop that did it
