  • Shipping to Canada

    Hello, Im new here and have been skiboarding with some cheap firefly for a while. Im looking to buy RVL8 KTP but I was wondering how much does the custom tax on the skiboards? Im in Ontario, Canada

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum and SBOL.

    Based on my experience, budget for approximately 10% of the Canadian cost of the goods to cover the courier/handling/gst cost if using USPS (default shipping method to Canada by SBOL). This is much cheaper than other sites that use UPS.

    As an example, I recently received $500+ CDN in items from SBOL and the fees from Canada Post were only $52 CDN. (Using UPS on another site, the same fees were ~58%.)

    The best delivery was within 3 days and the typical is 7 to 10 days to clear customs.

    BTW, you will get a tracking number from USPS that actually works best on the Canada Post site. (USPS = United States Postal Service)

              ive been ordering from sbol for like 6 years, i got customs once for skiboards. 40$ i think it was. you most likely wont have to pay anything.

                I was about to say that, In the past year I've had probably 15 orders off of various US sites, and only once had to pay customs.

                      maybe its a pay once thing? like once you pay it, that covers it for the year, or for life maybe?

                        Then you'd expect it on your first order or so, itw as the last one that I got where I got dinged.

                          when did your last order come across the border? maybe you only pay for like 5 packages? or 10? i dunno. there has to be a system.

                            Hah, you'd like to think there's a system, but it's probably random. If it's coming from what seems like a home address, going to a home address, they usually won't check. No idea how G marks the outsides of his packages, I'm usually too busy ripping them open to notice.
