Hi folks, new guy here. I was just wondering where you guys buy your supplies online to avoid those horrible brokerage fees when ordering from the US. I did do a search but it's kind of overwhelming, too many hits. I came across a guy named Chris from ezshine a couple of times, is this place reputable? Sorry for being so green, it seems like us Canucks don't have a lot of choice in this area, at least from my limited searches.

Chris at E-Shine is fantastic. I've ordered from his site more than a few times and everything always gets to me fast and in great condition.

I would highly recommend him to anyone. Feel free to pm me if you'd like to hear more.

carcaresmart.ca is also a very good retailer, plus I have yet to be hit by custom duties from the US. Just high shipping charges sometimes though these will vary widely.

I thought it was carcaresmart.com? But yeah, I've had good dealings with them. Also thedetailingshop.com.

With that said, there is nothing wrong with Chris at eshine either, great guy!

Ditto for highly recommending eshine. He tries to make the prices we pay comparable to US prices without the extra bull for brokerage fees. Plus he's got free shipping for $150+ orders.

Another endorsement for Chris at E-Shine! Very competitive with U.S. pricing and free shipping if you spend over $150. He also sells Ricardo Clay bars which is one of the best bars out there and it is not available in the States due to patent laws.

Another +1 for Eshine.

Detailed Image is another vendor I would recommend; shipping can be a bit high but their customer service (they are now sponsors on this thread) is unmatched.

I have great experience buying from ESHINE ,Chris is truly a great guy to deal with,he'll bend over back wards to keep the customers happy.
I know there's a new vendor from Montreal called wax on ,wax off,never bought anything from them but a friend who did ,was happy with the service ,I mentioned this new vendor knowing Chris is so busy with Eshine and does not or at least should not get upset having a new competition on the scene,and probably wishes him good luck,he must have seen a few of these vendors come and gone, according to him ,this is a tough business to survive in,what ever happened to Chemical guy's Canada?

I want to thank everyone for their input and comments. I'm not the most savvy at online ordering, but so many good comments, I'm placing an order with eShine tonight.

I've been reading and absorbing for a couple of months now and I have a question about the Pinnacle wax line. I am really intrigued with Souveran. I so enjoy looking at the detailing threads that document the process with pictures, many of you are true artists. The Pinnacle Souveran paste wax gets lots of props and it looks suberb, but I don't read much about the Souveran liquid wax. Their site says it "mimics" the look of the paste. Is it even worth it to go with the liquid or is it paste or nothing?

Thanks again for helping a new guy.

Wow, you guys that recommended Eshine were spot on. I ordered a bunch of different supplies and they were at my door within 1.5 business days. Free shipping too. Fantastic service!

This is probably my best experience ever when ordering anything on-line. I never corresponded with "Chris", but if he reads these posts, a tip of the hat to you. I can't see myself ever ordering from anywhere else.

Another endorsement for Chris at eshine.

Chris answered all my questions (many of them too) last year when I got my first PC7424. Shipping was fast and Chris helped me with getting the right compound and sealer too.

Having an online business is one thing, anyone can make one up. Getting your online business reputable and honest, that's the real work. Chris obviously knows his stuff and has put a lot of effort into making eshine a great detailing shop.

Kudos Chris and keep up the great work!
