As the Canadian dollars grows stronger we find we are getting more and more calls everyday from people like yourself looking to take advantage and order products from the U.S. We have the ability to customs clear all your newly bought goods whether it be a sofa, appliances, computers etc. As one of the most cost effective choices for your customs brokerage needs, we have the expertise to make sure your goods move seamlessly across the border.
Many shippers won’t ship anything from the U.S. without you supplying them a contact name and number for a customs broker for customs clearance at the border. The reason for this is that most shipments are cleared by customs before the truck even reaches the border to avoid any costly delays. If a shipment is not precleared at the border the truck will have to wait (sometimes a few hours) for customs clearance, which amounts to waiting time charged back to the shipper or you as the receiver.
There can be upwards of 50 shipments on a single truck so that is why it is important that the shipment be pre-cleared. Every transport company has their own bar coded stickers they put on the customs paperwork and fax to the customs broker when they pick up the shipment from the shipper. The customs broker than processes the shipment through to Canada Customs. When the truck reaches the border the driver shows the customs officer the bar code which the officer scans. The officer will see on his/her entry system that Bay City Brokers Ltd. has accounted for all duties and taxes and proper procedure has been followed. After reviewing the entry the officer will in most cases allow the goods to enter Canada for delivery
