    i junked my old saab not too long ago and what didn't get sold locally is getting sold online, most of it going to the states.
    For starters, what is the best courier for estimating shipping online, or a service that is good for this? i have just small boxes to ship currently (headlights/taillights that sorta thing) but will eventually need to ship big things like hoods and bumpers.
    Its been awhile since i've had to ship anything to the states, so i'm hoping i can get pointed in the right direction.

    Check out either Freightcom (they sell discounted UPS/FedEx/Canpar, etc), or ChitChats Express (they offer UPS/USPS shipping from a US based address by taking packages across the border for you)

    ended up setting up an account on secureship, which did a discounted rate
    The problem was i did a shipping estimate on FedEx which came out reasonable, but then i went to actually do the order and the amount to ship came out to almost double than what the estimate was.
