Here's a tip,

When you order from the USA, always try to ship via the USPS (Postal Service). That way, you always pay only $5 duty for items under $1000 value. Couriers use brokerage firms that will charge you much more money.

I just ordered a set of Leo Vince SBK slip ons.
Crossed fingers on delivery.

They are sending them US parcel post.

The $5 is actually a handling charge by Canada Post. In most provinces, Canada Post will also collect GST and/or PST. Ebay has notes at http://reviews.ebay.com/Canada-amp-U...00000000067340 Numerous times I've only been charged the $5, other times the GST/PST, and rarely duty charges. If Customs doesn't think the item matches the declaration, they seem to make up a high number and then you have to pay GST/PST on that amount. I'm never really certain what it is going to cost me until I actually pick it up....

I've ordered over $600.00 worth of stuff and find them excellant to deal with.
Sign up for membership on this forum as they get a discount and also good reading. You can get a US Address at the post office on Witmer Road, Niagara Falls, NY - 10 minutes from the Lewiston Bridge. You can have parcels shipped there for a cost of $5.00 US per parcel pickup. You could put on parts there or declare and pay GST and PST at the border on your purchase. This saves Border Brokers fees and horendous shipping charges that we have to pay UPS for canadian shipping addresses. I opened up a TD US Dollar visa account and pay through this. If you have any questions -email me.
Cheers! Grinder

Well Grinder,
Thanks for the info. but I already ordered fromthem
It is being sent US parcel post via ground.

I hope it comes okay.

I live far enough away from a US border that it would be silly to drive that far unless customs REALLY HOSES me.

Fingers are crossed.

Question Amotostuff Canadian deliveries

Rain Rider, I have heard from some time from a local BMW/KTM rider that the US Postal Service is the best as well. Could you post when you receive your shipment? Curious about the time.

If you don't start, you will always be late.
