I looked into that, but it was a lot more expensive. I used the UPS brokerage rate table to see that it should have been about $29 brokerage, but that didn't include the other fees they add plus for some reason they base the brokerage amount based on the total including shipping charges which bumped me from the $150-$200 range into the $200-$300 range increasing the fee to $45, plus there is a $6 and $5.50 fees that they tack on, but can't really justify what they are for.

Estimating about 10% duty (which was bang on), and $29 brokerage UPS worked out cheaper.
