Re: Customs Broker Recommendation

I've gone through a couple of customs broker and the best one I've dealt with is baycitybrokers.com The people there are really easy to deal with and reliable. Just my two cents.

I think this trusted straightforwardchb.com can do a better freight forwarding and clearance job perfectly without any delay.

Thanks

I used Pacific Customs Brokers to clear my Columbia 43. Cost $150 IIRC and was more than worth it to avoid any customs hassles. DO NOT go on information you may obtain by calling Canada Customs - if I had listened to them it would have cost me $thousands - fortunately for me an American truck driver knew more about Canada Customs rules than they did.

SVAuspicious This is easy to do yourself. All you need is a customs bond and if you are careful in your wording ("could you please tell me who files most of the bonds with you?") the C&I folks will tell you who to go to.

djodenda If you are bringing the boat back yourself, you shouldn't need a customs broker. I did this last year. Easy.

What kind of boat?

brilang Pacific Customs Brokers (Pacific Customs Brokers Inc. - International Trade Solutions) can handle your paperwork for you. Tell them Brian Lang sent you.

Note: I work for a company that manages the computer & servers for Pacific Customs Brokers. I am not directly employed by them.
