Question Importing a part from QC Canada into the USA.

Hi Peeps

I would like to import a motorbike part from QC Canada into the USA and was wondering if any of you Worldly gentlemen knew if there are any import or customs duties to pay between these countries..

I know there is between the USA and the UK (they’re outrageous custom duties) but I haven’t got a clue from Canada in to the US..

Any clarification or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
J

What bike is it John just moved my two bikes to the US needed to provide an original letter from the mfg showing EPA compliance. Is the new owner in the US? Since I was moving to the US had to provide my identification along with my US residency.

I would say no, not on parts.

While I'm sure there are volumes of rules and regulations, I know from experience that when ever anyone ships me anything from outside the US, I've never had to pay any customs or import fees.

UK Customs would put import duty and vat on a Red Cross parcel...feckers

Also when a parcel arrives in UK the agency inspecting and assessing for duty ( Parcelforce ) Charge you a fee for just looking at the parcel. That's in addition to the actual duty..

Thumbs up Cheers Guys..

.
Cheers guys for the info and clarification on the customs duty charges for parts being imported into the US..

There's a engine casing cover on Ebay Canada that I want to buy.. The cover costs $45 and the shipping quote is $65 to the UK.. I know shipping costs have gone up over the last couple of years, but $65 is taking the p*ss!

I was thinking it would be cheaper to have the cover sent to a friend in the US and then forwarded to me ( along with other parts) to the UK ..

What I didn't want to do is purchase the part and then have my friend deal with a load of BS import duty issues in the US..

From what you guys are saying, that wouldn't be the case and the part would clear US customs without any import fees..

Cool !


PS: Hi Richard... Glad to hear your move to the US went okay and hope you're settling into your new job..

NAFTA was a pretty US centric agreement. Things go from Canada to the US easier than US to Canada. Depending on cost I've had to pay tax and duty on new things brought into Canada from the US. I think "Second Hand" parts are exempt from them, but if I drive down to Montana, fit a bumper, lift, and tires on my truck and drive back to Canada I can get dinged for it, if they want to be that way

Never heard of the same issues with going the other way, we seem to encourage American shoppers with all but cheaper prices

Speed is relative, but fast is fast.

Check shipping from the US to the UK. Even the post office, which used to be cheap as chips as you say, has gotten expensive. The most economical way to ship is USPS flat rate. But the tracking number you get is meaningless. There is no tracking on flat rate, and no guaranteed delivery date. Priority Mail international is the second most economical. You will get a tracking number. You are probably looking at around $40 to ship that way.
