Shipping To Canada via UPS

Brokerage fees generally apply to regular ground shipments and cover the costs of processing the paperwork and paying the taxes and duties to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). The fees are calculated on the value of the product being shipped and can be as much as $100 USD. UPS customers do have the option to self-clear and UPS will provide the email address or fax number if customers call 1-800-PICK-UPS. 

- refuse delivery and advise the courier that you will pay duties and/or taxes directly to CBSA

- write down the unique shipment identification/tracking number.  The shipment will be returned to the courier’s warehouse for a limited period of time

- visit a local CBSA office that offers accounting services to the public. Directory of CBSA Offices and Services

- You will need the shipment identification/tracking number, the commercial invoice (receipt), and personal identification when you visit the CBSA.

- You will be given an official receipt indicating that you have paid duties and/or taxes paid to the CBSA.

- A copy of this receipt must be presented to the courier, either in person or by fax, at which time receipt or delivery of the shipment may be arranged.

If that seems like a lot of work then you may opt to pay the brokerage fee but at least you should know that you have a choice.
