Import a Focus to Canada

Hi Guys,

I've been a member over at golfmkv.com for a while now (one of your competitors in the hot-hatch sector, I know). I shared the information and helped a few people over there so I thought I'd do the same here.

Well, last February I picked up my GTI from the USA. Mint condition, low kms, all the options I wanted and..... $7,000 less than the ones in my province/province beside me!

(I had to pay 6.1% duty on my vehicle being German.. since Ford is produced in N. America you don´t have to pay that!)

The price I negotiated it down to (from Texas) was $15,000! lol... Of course, of course there is duty/taxes etc. The final price though sitting in my driveway was around $19,000CAD (and I had them ship up brand new winters as well as the summer tires).

(...and I had to pay 6.1% duty on my vehicle being German.. since Ford is produced in N. America you don´t have to pay that!)

The process took a while though and was frustrating even when looking online for help. Many people have the problem of wanting to import a car from the USA but not knowing where to start. I decided to solve the problem..

I spent about 2 months making the "Easy Guide to Importing". Breaking down the steps in a one-by-one fashion. If you guys wanna check it out and tell me what you think that'd be much appreciated! Spread the word too if you know anyone who's been looking at doing it.

www.easyimporting.ca

Hope this helps for anyone who´s been looking into it!

P.S. The Guide on the website is completely free! There is an option to buy the complete kit (more vid tutorials, tips, secrets, etc) but the guide is offered free to everyone

Wait a year or two and we can import the Focus RS from Mexico.

There is a focus Rs conversion on Craigslist Vancouver bc right now, it's a full conversion minus the motor, it's pretty sick! It's 4900 with 90,000kms on it. You should check it out!

Good news! With the NAFTA (US-Can-Mx) you can import/export any car from these countries. Get a Custom Broker do it for you.
