Krill In Canada

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I am in the process of picking a 35% Krill airframe. Here is my dilemma, I have two options on where to purchase from. One, Chief Aircraft or two, straight from Krill. With Chief I will have to drive across the boarder to pick it up, after paying $225 to have it shipped to a place that will accept the shipping, then pay taxes at the boarder. With dealing with Krill directly I know they will ship to me here in Saskatchewan, but how do I work with Canadian Customs, or a broker? Looking for anyone out there who has had experience with bringing in a larger airframe directly and having to deal with customs and a broker.

Re: Krill In Canada

I know 1 guy that bought a Krill and had it shipped to Champlain. He then crossed the border and simply paid taxes. No real issue.
Not sure about sakatchewan but here in quebec it seems simpler to pick it up by the border in the states and cross it over yourself.

Re: Krill In Canada

For a big ticket item like this I would go to the border myself. I had my 40% Dalton kit (3 big boxes) shipped to a border warehouse and drove across the border myself to pick it up. The border warehouse was cheap ($5 per box) and all you have to pay at the border is GST (no PST in Alberta ) Duty s not charged on model airplanes. Make sure you have a copy of the paid invoice to show the border guys (so they can calculate the GST/PST) and you are laughing. No brokerage fees and no delays!
