Default Help getting a Kamado to Canada

Got all the landscaping done and the new patio is finally ready for a #7K.
I live in Ottawa, Canada, 4 hours from Toronto. Called the company and was
quoted $413US for Conway to ship to Toronto (Scarborough to be more precise)
in 5 days. Went to Conway's web site and got a similar quote.

I found the shipping charge just too much to digest, especially when the K
is going for $739US. Someone from Toronto got his #7K shipped for $230US
(don't know how long ago)! Not sure why the $180US difference now.

I thought Kamado has distribution center in New Jersey, where I hope to get
my K shipped from there to reduce cost. But the company says it has to ship
from Sacramento.

Any ideas on how I can save on the shipping charge is appreciated. But if
this is the only way to go, I think I may bite the bullet and cry once only,
as the K is just too good to pass.

thanks in advance,
/David.

Would it help to get shipped to Buffalo, NY, and then drive down to get it?

Is it worth the two bills for you to pick it up in Toronto if indeed that is
the shipping rate?

I can look into that. Or if Conway can ship it to Cornwall which is a lot
closer to Ottawa where I live.

thanks,
/David.

Perhaps a road trip with 2 gorilla friends, case or 2 of fine frosties, and
some ribs to cook up when you get it set up. It should only heat to about
250ºF the first coupla burns. Plan?

It would be worth two yards to me to drive into the
Centre-of-the-Universe from Hogtown & back. I'd also phone around to
local freighters & see what the would need to haul 400lbs from
California. Perhaps ConWay ain't the end-all & be-all.
