    I posted about the site there as well. Once I remembered there being a DME thread.

      I've used Care Medical for years (used to be care catalog services).
      They have the cheapest coloplast caths that I've found.

      One time they shipped my caths loose. I called them and they sent replacements (the caths were bent), and it hasn't happened again in the following years.

      They are also the cheapest that I've found for Enemeez and magic bullets.

      Anyways, just chipping in with "I like them too"

        Does UTI Medical have a website or are they phone based only?

          Web site to come -- someday. So, yes, phone based but that's not really a bad thing at all in this situation. It's a good way to get and feel connected.

            Ordered cushion and some TiLite parts. Received shipment, complete and correct, on time. Tylers service was top notch.I did get hit for duty for the first time [ouch].

              Yeah, duty sucks. Glad to hear you had a good experience. I'd hate to give a good review only to find I was pointing someone in the wrong direction.

                We kick-ass down here in Portland. That is a scientific fact.

                      If you get the company to write on the package wheelchair supplies ect. You will not have to pay duty on it or gst. I found a Frontier X5 power chair fully loaded close to Detroit and had it shipped up to me and paid no gst or duty. I had phoned Canada border services and they said on medical you dont pay duty or gst. All my parts and such that I order from the states I make sure people write on the package what it is for. It has worked so far for me and I am not sure about PST as I live in Alberta and we dont believe in tax!

                        Good advice, Mooner, thanks! I'll be sure to do that from now on.

                          great advice! I was going to ask North about duties and taxes.

                          Canadian retailers hose us royally even though the American peso has tanked. Great thread!

                            Ya that is why I try to order anything and everything from the States. The companies up here can kiss my ass, they rip us off royally. The secondhand X5 that I bought from the States cost me $9200 if I was to order the exact one from the store up here it would of cost me $30,000 as it has the lift, tilt, recline and leg lift. Most items are at least 50% cheaper from the States, the only thing is you cant buy Roho cushions as they are not aloud to ship across the border. But you can buy one have it shipped to your friend that lives in the States then have him ship it to you, that would save you about 57%! Anyway just get the company to write wheelchair supplies on the outside in big bold letters or medical supplies and you should be safe from Taxes and duty.
                            Even the vehicles are cheaper down there i have been thinking about getting a second hand modified van but i contacted one place i know well and they can sell me a fully loaded brand new Chrysler van for $20k with full warranty (excluding the conversion). That same van up here is $30k, same goes for electronics, books ect. Do i feel bad about not shopping Canadian and supporting our retailers, no not one little bit. Normally I would but when they are ripping us off on purpose in plain sight at 20 to 30% difference forget it.

                            Oh and be happy the Torrie's have majority here in Canada otherwise the GST would be put up to 15% and your income taxes at 60% to pay for all those NDP socialist promises.
                            Remember nothing is free in life it has to be paid for somehow, I am tired of people believing they are entitled to something. Even being a crippled gimp I don't take things for granted and expect a hand out, I work full time. Look at the countries, the odd Canadian Provinces, American States, Counties and Cities that have or are going to go bankrupt all because of entitlements that were not realistic and self sustaining. There I am done my rant......................

                              I'm stealing NoDecafPlz's idea and wondering if we could make this "Good Online Dealer" a sticky. (NoDecaf started a thread today about a good deal he got on exam gloves [/forum/showthread.php?t=155211&highlight=Deals] and suggested a "Good Deals" sticky).
                              Do not confuse silence with consent or fatigue for indifference.
