I found a motor I've been looking for that is in British Columbia Canada v0g 1n0. He says he is willing to ship it but its a pain to go through customs. What is necessary to be done to have an engine shipped into the US. It's a small briggs engine.

Depending on where he is in BC, the simplest would be to cross the border and ship from WA state.

I sell and ship to Canada all the time. What's the problem? Just go to UPS, or USPS and fill out the info.

Hahaha. I guess I'll just mount it backwards and we will be ok.

He said he can ship it but its a hassle in customs. That the engine can't have any petroleum in it going across the border.

Shipping it with UPS is not a problem. I suggest you get firm quotes from them, so you don't fall

off your rocker, when you get the bill. Brokerage fees, and Canadian shipping costs are high.

As luck has it member DH1 from Canada will be driving ten minutes from my work in Cincinnati and has agreed to have the motor shipped to him in Canada and will bring it down on his way to olcowhands plow days! So this forum has once again proven to me how great this hobby is and the people involved.

Yes, that's right. Forgot about that. I went through that, when I brought the MF Elf into Canada.

Customs required that a freight forwarding company (licensed) had to prep it for shipping.

That could get pricey. That's the way it was coming into Can. anyway

Huh?

 

Yeah it's a French engineering thing. The French Academy of Engineers states that in the Northern Hemisphere an internal combustion engine must turn clockwise. . .             

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  except on Tuesday! :smilewink:
