Does anyone out there have any experience with this?

I ordered some snowmobile parts from the States once, they were a smokin' good deal till I paid duty, brokerage and GST. After that I might as well have gone to the local dealer and paid full retail, and had them in 10 mins!

I was wondering if anyone out there can tell me what to expect to pay in duty, brokerage, etc, not to mention any other hidden fees.

This is the only thing holding me back!

Thanks in advance,

Orrin

Yeah I did it. Came to over $700 CDN and took weeks but I have more $ than brains. I can dig up the papers and give you the exact amount if you want. I still don't regret it. I love having a plate and being able to explore back roads. Without the blinkers you wouldn't look very legal. As it is people do double takes cause they think I'm driving a YZ in traffic. Say do you really live in Kanata?

Whenever you order something from the USA, see if they will send it US Mail, not UPS. UPS bones you ($40 minimum)with their brokerage fees and the duty is always higher when they do the paperwork. Canada Post might charge you $5 for brokerage fees and I have bought a few things that I never did get charged duty on. A lot of places wont send stuff US Mail but it never hurts to ask. Good Luck!
