Brokers? Duty?

There is no duty on American made parts ( Mexico, US, Canada ), therefor no need for brokers if you are picking it up yourself.

I did once have to pay duty on a set of Yokohamas, because they are made in Japan. Otherwise, all they collect is the HST on your goods.

Dead simple.
NAFTA is one of the many treaties that exempt duty, but as you said not tax (tax amounts depend upon province that you reside in, and where your entering Canada by). Brokers help/assit with the importation of goods for a fee (doesn't matter if it's something that can be duty chargeable or not), often times now when ordering stuff online a lot of courier companies "broker" the goods on your behalf without asking then charge you for it...this thread is about avoiding the charge for people who can't make it to the border to pick up their goods.

Good link with corp-ctr.com! Lots of towns/cities on the american side have similar setups across the country, which is great if you live within reasonable driving distance!
