Has anyone sent their BIG check to ETI using International mail? Whether postal or by carrier (FedEx or UPS, etc.) and had a different/better solution? I know I can send international using FedEx and it will be delivered to ETI in less than five days. YMMV

I am using this more and more, all the time. I have found there to be a $3,000 limit on transfers though, is this maybe just some banks, or accounts?

We didn't, but I think that's the smart way to go. It's expensive, but for a one time large check, the ability to track and guarantee delivery is worth it.

My wife sent out check to ETI via regular mail and it took something like 20+ days or more. She called ETI and they told her all mail to Canada first goes to New York, gets some type of special sorting performed, and then on to Canada. How true this is, I don't know but that is what we were told.

Maybe you are right About the limit, Jim. I have done at least three transactions in the $2000-$3000 range in the past year, and have not hit a limit yet.

I have received regular mail from the US in quite a bit less time than that. Yesterday I received an envelope that was mailed 7 days ago. Packages are in the 20+ day range. I think Canada customs ponders over them them for a while.

My first payment to ETI took close to 2 weeks and my wire took close to 10 days. I did not realize that Canada took extra postage, my third payment by mail with extra postage took 4 days!!

I've never had regular mail from the U.S. to my home in Canada take as long as twenty days, but transit time is highly dependent on routing, so where the item originates and where it is destined are important. Mail within Canada can easily take over five working days if multiple sorting locations are involved; distance doesn't really matter, since first-class mail routinely travels by air so almost all the time is spent in sorting plants.
