Canadian importation information
We know that importation across international borders can be a chore and be expensive. We've negotiated special rates with UPS to ease the pain here. We also ship packages to Canada via USPS if possible, but dimensions, weight or value limitations may require us to use UPS.
When importing packages into Canada, there will likely be some additional fees due when the package arrives. Some of these can be avoided by contacting UPS and arranging for pre-payment. Flyin' Miata does not collect these fees, they are part of the importation process.
Note: This does not list every possible fee. It also does not include GST/PST/HST.
Please note that not all the products we sell are NAFTA eligible. In this case, duties may also be due.
