If you choose UPS Shipping and don’t have a brokerage agreement, we recommend going through the process of “self-clearing” your package so that you aren’t stuck with an extra fee. Here is the process to “self-clear” your package and avoid the brokerage fee.

  1. Do NOT agree to UPS acting as your broker. Not through email or when they’re at your door.
  2. Email or call UPS and say you are going to self clear your item. Ask them to email you the necessary documents.
  3. Bring those documents to your nearest Canada Border Services Agency (must be Inland offices).
  4. Pay your taxes and get your stamped forms back along with the B-15 form they provide.
  5. Email the forms back to UPS to prove you paid your owing taxes.
  6. Wait for your package to arrive free of charge.
