I have an Oliver 18 combine and am in need of a few parts. When I put the word out, I connected with a farmer from Canada who indicated he can source the parts for me. I have no qualms with him.

The issue I am experiencing is freight. He will order the parts from a 3rd party to his place, then ship them to the US from his place. He cannot give an exact $ figure on freight, thus I need to send him "X" over and above to cover anticipated freight. He will not order anything unless it is paid in advance...including freight. So in other words, he will operate on my money for freight, then if the freight is less, reeimburse me. I am leery of this. I have his name and our only communication is email. Again, I have no issue with the seller. I am trying to figure out a better way or is this the best way?

There has to be a better way.

Yeah, I would be leery (actually I wouldn't even entertain this option, unless I already knew the middle man). If he is buying parts, can't you buy them from the same place? They might have more experience shipping.

Maybe the 3rd party won't ship international. Then maybe you can buy from them, ship to his house and then have him get a quote and you pay the shipper directly.
