Hi guys,

Long story short -I am planning to buy several items from Grizzly/ShopFox and Steel City.
Way cheaper than comparable products here in Montréal.
I am interested in sharing the shipping cost/truck rental and drive time.
Let me know if you are interested.

  • Keep in mind there are NO tariffs on these equipment.
    The price you see on the website is the price you pay.
    And with a 10% coupon, that even takes care of the exchange rate….

You do have to claim your purchases for Duty. Think it is $800.00 after 48 hours. Just returned from Bellingham visit to the Grizzly, came home with a single spindle boring machine. (and a couple of bottles of Bourbon)

You are right.
But there are no duties on tools.
You only pay GST/PST. But if you stay in the US 24h, you get a $200 exemption, 48h it’s 800.
Will just go in and out same day an pay taxes. My company will clean them back later.

Have your say...
