Help/ info needed in trade

Myself and another Jemsite member are looking at a trade of guitars, neither one of us have done this before and are wondering if anyone can sugest the best method for doing so. I live in Canada and he lives in the US. Can anyone who has traded cross border recomend a way to do it. We are also wondering the best way to avoide custom fees or anything like that. Any help would be appreciated.

-Mark the item as a "repair" instead of gift to avoid fees, just don't get caught.

-Be prepared to wait for customs and shipping to do their respective things, one of you may get his guitar weeks before the other.... I have found that to be normal with out of country deals.

-Pack very securely and take pictures beforehand with an inventory of all included items.
-Keep in contact with the other party\

The rest is pretty much common sense.
