Who's a good shipping company to ship block that does thier own customs

Post  rocketpony on November 20th 2014, 12:16 pm

I'm looking to have a block shipped from the U.S. To Canada , I'm looking for a company that does their own customs and duty so that I don't have to go get independent brokerage company besides the shipping company.
Thanks

You might want to reconsider the broker idea, you can get companies like USPS who will broker the product for you, but they will use their own broker and charge 2x or 3x more than the cost of hiring your own, plus they will charge you a premium for the shipping. If you hire your own broker you can use just about any shipper and benefit from the competitive rates. I believe Byers, and Reimer will also do it for you, but again the broker will work to save you the most time and money if they are dealing directly with you.

Shipping to Canada

Where in Canada are you ? I am out in Alberta. I use the cheapest ground in the USA (depending on item size) to a border storage service. I have done a couple blocks that way, one all the way from Florida. Then go get it myself and do my own brokerage. Maybe this is not an option for you.

"GOOD" entails a lot of differing opinions.
EASY will expensive...
INEXPENSIVE will require some work by you...

I would visit a marina and talk with them to use their broker.

A fellow Newfie huh?Smile You might want to look into Oceanex. If I'm not mistaken the go from Florida straight into St. John's and you can do brokerage there yourself.

Are you looking for an aftermarket block? There are lots of used 429/460s on the island.
