    hey guys, buying a car from Seattle...it’s legal for import into Canada.

    Just curious if anyone has used brokerage companies to do the process or can I just do it myself easily?

    Thanks guys!

    Its not that hard. (Granted i havent imported anything in like 8 years)

    Just Call the USA border, to get the details of what you need for them,

    do the USA paperwork, then to Canada customs dutys tax's etc.

    Dont forget the RIV.ca as well.

    (Ya this isnt a very helpful post.. lol)

    Yes do it yourself
    There is a new step that costs $25-35 called getting an AES Number, you need t o attach it to your fax when you fax the US Side. Easier then JDM by far
