Default Customs Broker

Hello,

A friend purchased a piece of furniture for me while theywere in Canada. I found a shipper on Uship that will deliver it for my price. He's asking if I have a "Broker" to clear the item through customs. My question is has anyone here dealt with this before and can you recommend a broker?
I'm thinking hard about retreiving the item myself as I've never seen Niagra Falls.

TIA,

Anthony

Is it too big to ship by UPS? They will broker it for you for a price.

They always ask for the value of the item and then it seems like the brokerage is 30% of that value. Keep the value low.
