Thanks David, I appreciate the advice. I'll try USPS for the emp kit and see how it works out to Owen Sound.

Cheers,

Mike

I don't see many posts on this Matronics list, but thought I'd ask anyway in case
others also receive the digest. I'm ordering an RV-10 empennage in the coming
weeks to Ontario and was looking to see who other builders have used as a shipping
company, and an approximate cost to expect? Thanks.

Hi Mike,
Great news! It is a big but very worth while challenge to build an RV. I have an
RV7A in Sask. and I just broke 200 hours today. Winnipeg to Tisdale with a 35
Knot headwind. My RV was 9 years in the making and I brought in a lot of items
from around the USA and from Vans. I would highly recommend using the US Postal
Service at every opportunity. I have even insisted suppliers us USPS. The
problem with the courier and freight companies is they want all the extras. handling,
brokerage, GST, duty and unknown additional charges. I never had any
additional charges with USPS. The packages just came to the local Post Office
and I picked them up.

One other thing I have done is have bigger items delivered to a warehouse just
on the other side of the border. Drive across, pick them up, throw the bills down
at Canadian Customs and whatever they want give them a credit card and you
are on your way. This worked well when I was in Winnipeg. It may not be too convenient
from Owen Sound.

Good luck. The Canadian RV forum is rather quiet but occasionally someone has a
good post.

Regards
David Lamb

Hi Mike - I'm also working on an RV-10, from just north of Edmonton. It's been an absolutely great experience so far.

David is right - use the postal service at every opportunity. But I'd be very surprised if Van's would be able to do so with the larger shipments like kit deliveries.

A lot of people do have large deliveries sent just south of the border and then go down to pick them up personally. But I don't live conveniently close to the border, so I haven't done this. One thing that does work really well though - notify whatever shipping company that you will cover the brokerage yourself. It will require your going down in person to a customs office (which in itself is a rather significant pain - I wish they could just take credit card info over the phone, or allow you to fill out documentation by fax, but they don't), but then you'll only be asked to pay the GST, which you'd have to anyway, and not any of the other significant fees that the shipping companies love to tack on. I can't say the customs people are thrilled to do this (at least in my experience) since being that you haven't likely done it before, you'll be asking them to clarify questions as you're filling out the form, but they have to allow you to do it this way whether they're thrilled about it or not.

And when you get to the point of adding all the little "extras", you'll definitely want to check out Aircraft Spruce for the additional bits and pieces, since they maintain a warehouse in Ontario and as such if you have things delivered from their Ontario warehouse, you can avoid all the import fees there as well.

Great to hear you're joining the ranks of RV-10 builders!

Dan
