Default Shipping to US from Canada? Buying RC from Canada?

Has anyone here bought large scale RC items from Canada to the U.S? Im buying a 2 car nitro lot with radio tx/rx spare parts etc..

Whats the best route? and if the rc item is purchased for $1200 is there duty or customs fees that need to be looked at? If so what should I expect to pay in tariff or custom brokerage once package gets to me in the US?

thanks for the help

From Canada to US, used items, there will be zero VAT or Tariffs.

Shipping itself is a nightmare. It will route through one of the three customs locations, CA, Chicago, or NY.

I bought a solid deal on a car in Canada. It was lost in customs, and I never received it once it got to the USA.

Sucks; the seller IIRC did insure the car, which helped him out, and obviously, after three weeks or so of waiting for it he refunded me my payment.

Personally, I'll NEVER purchase from outside of the USA again. Seller was tremendous, customs isn't.
