Great move!

Thanks for the effort APEX!! I've always bought 99% of my parts in the US! Most of the local canadian speed shop will rip you off and they dont know shit about LS

True that the best way is USPS, UPS customs fees are simply outrageous. UPS are the fastest because they have their own private customs so it goes right through but, too expensive when youre not in a hurry.

I'm not sure if they are only commercial use, but Highlands uses Cross Border Solutions for our brokerage and if they sending party puts attention to them at the border, UPS or whatever courier used, doesn't get to charge the exorbitant brokerage fees. There is a schedule so you know exactly how much each shipment will cost. Just a thought for any and all using Apex and don't want to wait for snail mail.

Based on their website they appear to be geared towards commercial customers. All of this cross border stuff is pretty new to us but we are willing to explore anything that helps you guys.

Here is some information that pertains to these types of shipments. Referred to as Low Value Shipments Program (LVS). This program is extended to courier and postal shipments for both commercial (business) and casual goods (personal).


Effective January 8, 2013

"The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced today that Canada and the United States have increased and harmonized the value thresholds for expedited customs clearance to CDN$2,500 and USD$2,500 respectively. This is an increase from the current levels of CDN$1,600 for Canada and USD$2,000 for the United States. In addition, Canada has increased the low-value shipment threshold to CDN$2,500 for exemption from North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Certificate of Origin requirements, aligning it with the current threshold of the U.S."

So as long as the shipment value is less than $2,500 Canadian it can be processed through this program. Remember that means USD x Exchange Rate = Canadian Dollars.

Interesting. I guess I need to figure out what the hell all that means.
