not sure where you are but I often order performance parts from the states, On the more expensive or the heaver shipments I have the company or the seller, Ship it to a ware house just over the border. You will save a bunch of money on shipping and brokerage fees.

Oddly enough there is no duty, BUT you will have to pay PST, GST, or HST depending on where you live. If the goods are being shipped by United Parcel Smashers they will screw you over with their "brokerage fees".

UPS seems to have their own "brokerage fees", usually seems to be at least 30%. I'd ask them to ship it as a gift, that sometimes works. Or the declared value as next to nothing.

Here is a link to the UPS brokerage fee chart http://www.ups.com/content/ca/en/shipping/cost/zones/customs_clearance.html. On top of that you will pay tax on the parts. If made in the US there will be no duty. Sometimes getting it shipped Expedited is cheaper because brokerage is included in the shipping cost. Figure it out before you buy and if you're still saving money who gives a shit if UPS gets some of your money.

I bought some stuff from Strano last year (Probably like 500-600 USD) and the parts were shipped to Pearson Int. and I went down to the airport and did a self clearance. No brokerage fees, just paid HST, which was around 80-90 bucks I believe. Plus 10-15 dollars in gas to get to the airport, but that was water under the bridge.. BTW the parts from Strano were shipped through DB Schenker.
It was my first time doing a self clearance and seemed to be a PITA, but I would definietely do it again now.
