I had a skid of equipment brought in from Massachusetts 2 weeks ago and it cost me $40 (anything over a set dollar amount tops out at $40) for brokerage and 5% GST.  I gave the seller the contact information for the broker and than waited for the truck to arrive.

Do your homework before choosing a customs broker; some are very spendy and some are reasonable.

SD you bet the exchnge rate has something to do with a lot of it. Like a lot of corporations, everyone has a different interpretaion of the rules, especially when new. We all have good border crossing stories. You just never know what side of the bed they got of that morning.

What ever you do, don't forget about the box of 357 jacketed hollow points back in the sleeper cubbie hole.  You get taken
to that special room in the customs building. ;D  Canadians don't like that.
It was HP FMJ 38 specials in a J frame upstate.
