Sorry guys, let me see if I can confuse you a little more lol.

What this means is that historically shipments that were valued at more than $1,600 Cdn would require a formal B3 accounting package, which had to be processed by a customs broker. That threshold has now been increased to $2,500 Cdn. The LVS program allows the postal service and courier companies to consolidate all of these shipments valued at $2,500 Cdn or less and pay the duty and taxes once a month on one (large) LVS summary document. In most cases, under this program your shipment has already been cleared through customs before it arrives in Canada. The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will have already per-determined which packages the want held for inspection.

What it means to you is you can now order 2,500 Cdn in parts and products instead of $1,600 and it can still be handle by Canada Post/USPS via the LVS program. By using the Canada Post/USPS shipping option you will avoid brokerage charges, service charges, taxes on service charges and brokerage charges. However, I believe that Canada Post will still collect the HST on the Canadian value of the goods. I have also seen, in some cases, where Canada Post adds a nominal processing fee, think it was $10, but usually on larger shipments. They have also increased the low-value shipment threshold to $2,500 for exemption from North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Certificate of Origin requirements. So chances are if the goods are shipped from the U.S. they will automatically be given a duty free status unless the shipping documents indicate some other country of origin.

Are you more confused now?

CDN orders

Just got off the phone with Victoria to place an order and just wanted to say what a pleasant experience it was. She was very courteous and professional to deal with.

Looking forward to receiving the order.

Jim.

Victoria managed to find some RBA rotors for me in a HUGE urgent rush and got them shipped overnight when I was doing One Lap of America.

I had some cheap Chinese crappy rotors on the car installed before i committed to the event. They warped in no time on the track. Imagine jumping on the binders at 155 mph at Daytona speedway with the car shaking like a Japanese earthquake.

Thanks Victoria.

Glad to hear that she took good care of you. I remember when she was working on that. How did the rest of the trip go?

There will be some opportunities for you all north of the border to offset your shipping costs with some pretty serious product discounts, particularly on some of the larger parts that are pricier to ship. Be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook page and hit up Victoria if something catches your eye.

You guys must be doing a lot of winter wrench turning! I just took a huge pile of Canada bound packages to the post office. I should have taken a picture.
