A package about 20 pounds worth 400 usd coming from the us. How much do u think duty will be. I belive it will be shipped ups. Any ideas. I't ground control coilovers by the way. If anybody knows of a place in Canada that i can get them from for around that price please let me know. I'm hopeing to maybe get them before bimmercruize but i'm doubting it.

I paid $106 for my $500usd worth of GC stuff, so expect around $80 or so.

Call Customs Canada!
They're in the telephone book (Blue Pages).
They will tell you EXACTLY how much it will cost you.

It's no mystery or guesswork; have the country of fabrication ready, because if they're made outside of CDN, USA or Mexico, you will pay duty. How much - it depends on a number of factors.

Also, have the estimated shipping cost, because you will be charged PST, and GST.

It's all quite easy - just have the info ready, and give them a ring.

Don't forget the broker fee ... UPS is a real bastard, and it's like $50. Most of the time, it's 15% tax, and sometimes 6% duty, plus the broker fee BS. I usually get stuff shipped to Ogdensburg, NY, and go pick it up (45min from Ottawa).
