Shipping small speakers from Canada.

Recommended Posts

I am looking to have a small set of speakers shipped from Canada (maybe).

 

Can the seller just drop off at Fed Ex or are their tariff, import duties, etc. to worry about?

A Canadian can ship you what ever they want and they can assign it a declared vale and insure it and after that duty and such will be made by the American Customs at the point of entry and you will be responsible for that. Most all the major shippers will pack and ship for an extra cost they will even pick up and pack and ship but again at additional cost. I have done this with goods in America coming into Canada it is not terrible but it's not cheap so it will depend on the deal and how badly you want the goods. Hope this helps.

You need a psychic medium for that sort of thing. The speakers might get delivered straight to your do with zero fees or they may have a duty fee attached, you never know. you can call customs and ask but you won't really know till you get the box. That's how it has always been for me. Spend the extra cash and have them sent by air as they will spend far less time in the transit system and be handled way less so a much smaller risk of damage. If you ask the sender to declare a lower value then you can save some money on customs but you will lower the amount that you can insure them for. Your call on that tact.
