    Default How can I Ship Implements into Canada??

    We would like to start serving our friends in Canada with our New and Used Implements. I realize that either We or the customer has to have a customs broker. I really don't understand the process much beyond that. Any input or advice would greatly be appreciated. Ken Sweet

    The Northeast shipping corridor is a little more expensive.

    Hi Ken, I bought my Kioti tractor new from Tony Sarao, Owner of Superior Tractor & Equipment in Oregon about 2 years ago. Never met him, all done through e-mail and phone. I had to pay to have it shipped to me. Had to pay the taxes, both provincial and federal when it came through the border. I used a broker to do this and process the paper work. Was easy to do. If you contact a broker they will give you all the information needed regarding the paper work requirements. Not sure 100% but it may be the customer who will need to have the broker. In my case I got and paid the broker as I was bring it into Canada. The tractor was in my name so think that's why I had to have the broker. Good luck.

    I've imported several vehicles from the US into Canada, my flat deck car trailer being the only new one. My boat and one of the off road motorcycles were quite easy as they didn't need any inspection for compliance with Canadian laws but the on road vehicles were another story. My only advice is to make sure Canada Customs and Revenue knows that what you are shipping are not on-road vehicles. A customs broker will not be necessary if your customer picks up the merchandise from a warehouse in the US but make them aware that the US authorities need to be notified in advance that a self-propelled vehicle is being exported. This is just the start. What did you expect from Government? Information can be obtained from Canadian Customs and Revenue and from US Customs and Border Protection, both on-line. E-mail me if you can't find their sites and I will take the time to dig them out for you.

    I was thiking of a more creative solution, just wait until haying season and hook a bunch of implements behind a tractor with a slow moving sign. When you get to customs start complaining about the haybine cutting the hay too short and ask the custom officier if
    3" standing stubble left in the field is too long.
    It must just work.

    there are some issues regarding motorized equipment, the u.s. government has to release the unit for export before the canadian side can process it's paperwork. the american side needs the paper work 3 business days before the equipment shows up at the border.

    i have been told the same applies to tractors, bobcats, motor driven welding machines... etc. if it has a motor and a serial number it needs a release from the u.s. side.

    i know for sure that applies to vehicles... never tried it on any of the other stuff.

    I am thinking of shipping possibilities for Snowblowers, Finish Mowers, Roto Tillers, Cultipackers, Sickle Mowers, Plows, Disc Harrows, Vegetable Transplanters, Cultivators etc. Don't anticipate anything motorized at this point in time. I would be using LTL (Less Than Truckload) common carriers with my shipment on a 53 ft van trailer with maybe 20 other pieces of freight belonging to someone else. This type of Pool freight shipping keeps the costs way down for the consumer. Ken Sweet

    Back a few years I often imported aircraft into Canada, by air, on trailer and even towed.(probably 2 doz or more)
    Same should apply for tractors.
    Know more than the customs officer. Research and know your tariff numbers and rules.
    The first is probably the toughest as much research is needed.
    1- Private imports is totally acceptable. (commercial need a broker unless you have it all down pat)
    2- Paperwork, bill of sale, signed is most important.
    3- Be able to quote the tariff item #'s
    4- Terms such as, 'made in Can, returned to country of origin' is magic.
    5- Best deal for a Cdn would be shipping to a US pick up point and the client hauling over the border. that way he brokers privately without all the brokerage fees as long as he has the supporting paperwork.

    Services such as UPS, Fedex will add so many fees and taxes that the buyer will wish he had purchased locally in Canada. (Been there, done that!). Cartage firms using LTL rates will also kill all the advantages.

    I know you have your own hauling capabilities, so I suggest you team up with a 'border buddy' and drop ship to his facility and let the Cdn buyer pick up and do his own crossing.
    With a proper bill of sale he won't have any difficulties importing. In fact, depending on his stay in USA he can be exempt from any duties/taxes. Otherwis, generally he is liable for only the normal local taxes (which vary fron province to province). Either way he will be miles ahead vs purchasing same goods in Canada. (except for Cdn made goods, i.e. Pronovost Puma blowers which are Cdn made goods)

    An example; $200 purchase recently made on EBay which should have cost me, ie $18.00 via USPS was sent UPS! The UPS fees were $92.00! That's all brokerage and disbursement fees!

    The only way to be econimical is a border drop point with buyer pick up.

    Couple years back I bought a used 60" blower for $400. and picked it up in Albany, NY.
    With proper bill of sale I cleared the border same day with a disbursement of no more than $25 odd dollars! Not bad for a day's work!

    Ken,
    This guy sells at most of the auction sales around here. I've bought odds and ends from him that way. Might be the easiest way for you to get into Ontario but there are actually quite a few companies sending stuff our way. Prices are pretty low too. I used to buy and sell 3 pth blades and resell them making a few $'s. Lots of tillers, rear blades, mowers, back hoes and other steel stuff. Lots of trailers too.
    Do a search for Ontario auctioneers and you'll likely find his stuff listed. He used to sell at Richie's and LVG's too but not anymore.

    Yeah you have to get a list of places that will hold shipments near the border. I am in Canada and have a tough time when trying to get stuff from the states. Always better to go and get it but if you could ship to a place by the border many in Canada would buy that way. Never use UPS the brokerage fees are killer. I bought a used set of rims for my 78 Mustang the seller shipped in two boxes due to size and UPS wanted to ding me twice for customs brokerage on 20 yr old used rims. It was more than the price I paid for them. Right now I would ship to a UPS place I heard of at Sweetgrass MT for us in Alberta. I have not tried them but have heard they are reasonable. I'm sure your network of places would build as you sell across the border. Just advertise that option in your ads and the buyer will tell you how they want it done. Good luck! Many Canadians looking for deals down south right now with the dollar at par.
