Bringing chevelle frame into canada

Hello Everyone,

I'm not sure if this is the right section for my question, but I'll ask anyways. I am going to buy a bare replacement frame for my chevelle in The US and am going to be bringing it back to Canada.

is there any special requirements for bringing a bare frame back? I imagine it would just be classified as a "car part" and would just need to be delared as that at the customs booth? is this correct? or are there special steps I need to take?

if anyone could help me out that has experience with this or point me in the right direction that would be great

Thanks alot

JR

I go to the states quite a bit and buy car parts there and bring them back across, I will be honest, sometimes and I take the stuff out of the box and declare noting, and sometimes I do declare it, whoever or wherever you buy the frame from get them to do a bill of sale and class it as a car part, it is going to be obvious it is a car part but it will cover you ***, you have a reciept from the person, make sure his number and address is on there as well in case they need to confirm. you will probably pay tax on the frame so see if you can get it lowered on the reciept, if they tell you at the border you need to pay duty, tell them the frame was made it the US and any car part or tool made in the US you don't pay duty on, It is part of the NAFTA agreement. Hopefully this helps you in some way or another.

check the state you are buying the frame from !!!! you will need a title to prove ownership ,and transfer papers ..the frame has a vin number registration is needed or you will NOT get it across ..each state and province has it's own rules ..check out the rules before you go down ..I spent 4 months with a truck in storage while I got screwed around because I didn't check befor I bought a truck ..make sure ..we are not border guards ..or tax people ..or customs ...they are the ones you NEED to talk to ..it's not bad if you do your homework ,use the phone go to the local office ..they will help you ..if you ask...

Its just another car part. Don't get caught up in all the drama. Buy it and bring it back, pay duty or HST if you have to, but it under your Chevelle. Drive it!
