The short answer to that question is that it depends on the situation. But it’s not anything to worry about.
There’s a workaround that makes it possible to order from Thompson Cigar and have the package shipped to Canada. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Thompson Cigar Online Store to Canada
First off, you’ll need a real U.S. address. There’s no two ways around it.
How are you supposed to get a real U.S. address if you don’t live in the USA? Ask a friend? What if you don’t know anybody in the United States?
Don’t worry, it’s a lot easier than it sounds!
If you look around online, you’ll find a bunch of companies in the U.S. offering physical United States addresses to customers located overseas.
These companies provide addresses for this specific use case, and they’ll even help ship your packages directly to you.
This type of service is called Freight Forwarding.
You simply register an account with a Freight Forwarder, and they’ll provide you with a U.S. based address.
You then use this address for your deliveries, and they’ll automatically forward them to your home country.
MyUS is our personal favorite Freight Forwarder.
They combine a reliable and convenient service with a fair price. They do not charge additional taxes or unnecessary fees and have a relatively low rate.
Since working with them, we have conveniently and inexpensively shipped many packages internationally.
Whether you buy products from Thompson Cigar or another U.S.-based company, MyUS lets you conveniently ship them to your new physical U.S.-based address.
