I'm wanting to order some fabric from a small designer/fabric company. It would be shipped from the USA to Canada, to get to me.
While I know the price up front for the fabric and shipping, I am quite hesitant about the "unknown" when it crosses the border (ie duty/customs fees)
While keeping it all honest and above board ... Are there any hints as to how to keep those unknown fees to a minimum? I'm thinking here that there may be a weight limit that is best to stay under? or perhaps dollar value?
What is the max that I might get hit with re customs/duty? (per centage?)
How long does it usually take from the USA shipping date, to pass thru customs and get delivered here in Canada?
Is the best shipping method via Postal Service? or what should be used?
Any other suggestions you can offer are most appreciated!
Please? and Thanks!!
