ET Hitch shipped to Canada

Recommended Posts

I spoke to Chance at PopUp Towing Products about getting an ET Hitch. He was able to get me a shipping quote but didn’t know about duty, taxes or any border fees. Anyone from Canada have one shipped up here that could let me know about any duties or other border fees? I’m assuming I’ll pay the HST on the invoice amount. Thanks in advance.

Wrong tax

Depending on your province you might have to pay the harmonized (gst+pst) tax on the hitch and the shipping. You will probably have to pay brokers fees as well!

You might ask Chance to call Henry Smyzt and find out what has been done in the past.  I haven’t heard of anyone this side of the border buying one since Young’s took over production.  You could also email Gregg from rvhaulers.ca and ask him what is involved.  When I bought my Trailersaver they had the phone number for a broker to fill out the paperwork and collect the taxes.  I think they charged maybe $50 plus the tax and the coordinated with Trailersaver to make sure the shipping company had the proper documentation for crossing the border.  Sounds like it is something new for Pop Up but should be simple after they find a broker and do the first one.

Thanks, I’ll see if I can get some information from Henry.

We have been providing all the new documentation to our customs brokers as the CUSMA is now in effect as of July 1/2020. I also would recommend a broker to handle this.  UPS CUSMA

Would it make more sense to have it installed in US and then drive home??

 

I thought of that but the 16+ hrs to get there would be a heck of a fuel bill. Shipping definitely cheaper.

Would you recommend UPS as the broker for something like this? I’ve used them for small stuff. The truckloads I take to and bring back from the US have me dealing with a variety of customs brokers. Everything I haul is food but I’m sure they handle other things.

 I deal with UPS other modes department hauling in stuff from the US on LTL shipments. The rates seem to be pretty good and we've had no issues with the clearances.  It seems like all the big carriers like FedEx and DHL have freight brokers. Which province are you shipping to?

Hi,
I would check with a few freight brokers in your area for price quotes. They can handle all the details as well as customs clearances.

Slixter, we shipped a lot of ETs to Canada to numerous customers. You need a broker and a set of export documents. There are also specific codes in those documents to properly classify the product for the the export - import authorities (primarily on the Canadian side). Lot of it had to do with the previous regime of rules, don't now if the new agreement between the US -Mexico-Canada changed any of that (I doubt it). Chance, Brian and I are in frequent communication, I'll be happy to assist you to make this happen and it would good thing for Young's - PopUp to have  process in place for future sales to Canada. I'm still available for "advise".

Thanks Henry. I’m assuming the export documents are provided by the vendor. Any suggestion from past experiences on an a broker?

We used Pacific Customs, the last time we used them was several years ago. Don't know if they would have our past records? Young's would have to establish a new relationship.

Call Neal Denison at Near North brokers. We use them for all our commercial goods and they can look after the import for you. 
 

They will tell you exactly what you need.  
https://www.borderdocs.com/brokers/brokerprofile?brokerID=3706
 

I know right now the border is an issue to go get it and carry back. 
 

If you can wait until the border opens, then ship to a freight location on US side and with the hand carry docs from broker you cruise right through. 
 

Might just be HST and no duty depending on commodity. Made in USA  will help. 
Neal will advise. 
 

They have a driver in here in Sault Ste. Marie that goes over daily to carry goods across while we can’t. Get extra fee is $30 to $60 for that. 
 

The actual customs brokerage is not bad at all. They will give you a quote.

Thanks Bill. Very helpful. I’ll give them a call. I keep forgetting the border is closed for non essential. I’m state side more days than I’m home! Just got to NJ at 01:30!
