questions about importing from the States
Has anyone bought stuff in the States and had it shipped into Canada? I'm thinking seriously about getting a Fieldsheer jacket and I'm wondering if it's going to be a pain.
I've read the information from Canada Customs ( http://www.ccra-adrc.gc.ca/E/pub/cp/...html#P119_2720
) and it seems pretty straight forward. Of course dealing with the Gov't, you can never be too sure.
One thing I have heard repeatedly is to avoid getting things shipped UPS... they charge a high handling fee. Using the post office (ie: shipping via the US postal service) should result in only a $5.00 surcharge on customs fees.
Anyone with either good or bad experiences please share with us.
