Why Buy Bilstein Suspension in Canada
Things to consider when buying from a US mail order company…
- Currency Exchange
- Brokerage fees
What is a Brokerage Fee?
This a fee that the courier company that is shipping your product across the border will charge you to do the paper work involved at Canada customs.
What is Duty?
Sometimes called a tariff, this is a fee that the Canadian government determines depending on what the product is made of and also where it is made.
- Extra costs in shipping the product back to the original company the product was purchased from.
- Shipped incorrect product, shipping returns back across the border
