DATABASE: Listing of Canada friendly online retailers...

I have purchased things from a few online shops in the good ol' USA and a few times they have blocked the sale after the fact saying something along the lines of, "We're sorry but that manufacturer does nto allow that product to exported to your area"!!! What a piss-off!!!

Any ways, i was wondering what CANADIAN or SUPER friendly, reliable, and able American shops you all have dealt with, know about, or have heard good things about?????

I really need to track down some Globe Chet Thomas IV (Khaki/Brown) skate shoes, so if anyone knows a good canadian skate shop online let me know that too!!

Other then eBay (obviously) i have dealt with www.tiretrends.com out of Vancouver. I will keep this post updated if someone wants to make it sticky??

Your turn....

If the US shop was easy to deal with and had good prices and all that jazz then put them up!!! Basically i am looking for anyone who has good support for their Canadian customers!!

Thanks man! The Accord is so sweet, so smooth, so posh.... people get in and they are like, "this is YOUR car?" and then, "THIS is an Accord?" and i am like.... "OH BABY, YEAH!" lol......

I will update the list with that new link! Thanks wanta6!!

Tell me, Mr. Anderson, what good is a phone call when you are unable to speak?

Try automotive-warehouse . com

Their site sucks, but a phone call will do the trick. Ask for Steve in the Showroom, I'm not sure if they ship (I live 5 min. away) Sorry if they don't.
I couldn't post the link direct, sorry.....I'm a noob

I know this is through ebay, but he also has a shop in Mississauga. Arm-Can Auto parts. I bought the Control arm, sway links and inner, outer tie ends. His shipping is FAST! ! day to get my stuff ( I live in St Catharines) Well packed and in excellent shape.


I would also like to add that Automotive Warehouse took 6 weeks to ship in my VIS Invader bumper when they promised it in 3. Small beans but I had to rent a truck to get the sucker home. Imagine my anger when I couldn't pick it up OR get my car safetied.

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs, the Titanic was built by experts.

Ordered some poly control arm bushings from these guys. They're out of Colorado, but carry products from Aussie based SuperPro/Whiteline. Answered emails the same day, and my order was shipped the same day, with a UPS tracking number.

Exclamation Globe Shoes

Hi there,

came across this thread when using Google to find references to Globe CT IV shoes in the colour brown. I've been looking for those for ages (used to have a pair of them; wore them till they fell from my feet) and I was wondering if you (Claeren) actually have come across a pair. and if so, would you be inclined as to share where you did?

Anyhow; thanks for your time,

Cheers,

D
