Hi Guys, Ive been working on my car since 2016, and have spent many thousands on parts from the US. As you probably know, the cost of these cars as a pro-touring hobby is through the roof. I live in Calgary, AB, and I noticed a large discrepancy in duty fees bringing parts across the border. UPS seems to be the worst offender. They bend me over a barrel with every purchase. Fed-Ex seems much more reasonable, but there is no rime or reason. I just purchased a type II power steering pump from Saginaw MI, which was to be delivered by UPS (the worst offender in all categories. I cringe every time a company uses them in both my personal and professional life, but I digress). A few days after it shipped, I received a notice that I owe them $135 for taxes and import/brokerage fees. Digging deeper, $40 of that was taxes, the rest "import/brokerage fees". $95 for import fees? That was the straw that broke the camels back. I did some research online and learned a few things, mostly from this site: https://trueler.com/2010/09/13/ups-brokerage-fees-total-scam-fraud-cheating-avoid-it/ The first thing I did was call up the local CBSA to confirm that I could actually self clear. There is one in Calgary, near the airport. They confirmed that this was indeed within my rights to clear, and that all I would need is a receipt and a "cargo control document" that the shipping company (UPS) is obligated to provide upon request. The package must also be in the city of delivery, incase they decide they want to check it out, so you will have to track the pkg. to confirm its in the city of delivery before clearing. I called up UPS and asked them for the "cargo control document". Boy, that was a chore. They tried every trick in the book mentioned in the website above, like telling me I will need to drive to the port of entry (total bs) etc. Finally they relented and I received the documentation. I drove up to the CBSA and cleared my pkg. without issue in less then 5 minutes. Saved me $90, but really it was more about the principal. I felt really good knowing I out foxed UPS and saved a decent chunk of change for very little effort. Next time I will request the cargo control document straight out of the gate from the vendor I purchase the parts from. They are the ones that provide this document to the shipper to begin with. This way I don't have to rely on UPS to get me my documents in a timely manor. I hope this helps some of my fellow Canadians keep a little more coin in their pocket as they continue on this very expensive and truly fulfilling hobby. I wish I had done this a lot sooner, but there is still a lot of savings to be had going forward. Good Luck!
