Sct tuner in canada

i just got a few questions from people who live in canada who bought the sct tuner from tom. Did you get charged duty fees? i just saved up enough money for the tuner and if i get charged duty fees things will be way to tight for the next 2 weeks. And being across the border in order to call tom when im data logging its gonna cost a fortune.(i read it somewhere on this site about him wanting to talk on the phone for tunes?)
If you guys could comment it would help out alot :) thanks

You dont need to talk on the phone and if we do I can call you at no charge

All I will need is datalogs unless there is some kind of issue and we can always do IM on AOL or again I can all you

I'm up north in Ontario, but I'm glad you showed me that. Just wish there was something closer. 400km to the shipping point :(

Anyone else got any info on duty fees? How much or how to avoid them?

No duty on auto parts if picked up in United States. Can only charge HST. If shipped over border, Duty AND Brokerage fees apply. Only way to avoid is pick up yourself. I use CBI in Niagara Falls New York as a shipping address.

If you want to avoid the duty fees you will need to ship using USPS and avoid couriers such as UPS and FedEX, any items that I've had shipped using USPS I have not had to pay any fees on them.
