Any idea of what to expect to pay ? Bike being shipped all in cost into Canada from the US.

Any advice on what to do, forms, paperwork, etc ? Bike is a US made product.

Thanks in advance.

Importing it permanently or bringing it on vacation? There's no import charges on bike brought along on vacation as long as you leave with it as well.

Real bikes are only subject to sales tax, no duties, so it depends which province you're be importing it to. Alberta has no PST, BC has no PST on bikes and bike parts, everywhere else has PST/GST. GST is 5%. Brokerage is likely $35.

Department store bikes are subject to a hefty anti-dumping duty, like 20%.

Shipping is likely to be $80-100.

get some dirt and mud on it. make it look like it's been ridden. and have a story as to what trails and where you rode.. throw it in the back of your car/on rack. and just drive through. they won't know the difference
..unless you told them you were going down to buy a bike. that info they can see.
