Default Ordering Incra threw amazon.ca or directly threw Incra's USA location

Guys there's a promotion today on Incra ,but seeing as it's directly from there plant in the USA how long does it take to get across the line to Canada ? With free trade if it's american made there should not be any duty , but that only seems to work for them ?

Have any of our Canadian members here ordered from Incra directly ?
I can get the 43 by 17 table combo3 threw amazon.ca full filled by Elite Tools , and there exceptionally fast , but they don't have a Incras PRL V2 in stock , just the mastRlift II
So I may as well order it all threw Incra I guess and get what I want .

Here's today's promo link ^^^

Woodworking equipment is supposed to be duty free, but you'll still end up paying brokerage fees to the transport company.
Cheapest way is USPS......normally no brokerage fee, which pays for the shipping and then some!

It is a continual source of amazement, the amount of crap you guys up north have to go
thru just to get something from down here.

Whoa! NOT UPS ...USPS US Postal Service!!
UPS will charge you $40+/- just for the brokerage declaration that says you don't owe duty. You already know that; don't need them to tell you.
*UPS is United Parcel Service, a private courier company...nothing to do with the Postal Service.

Query the supplier and see what their shipping options are. It's normally the buyers prerogative on how goods are to be shipped. When the company tells you it's their way or the highway, you've been warned.

Default INCRA Direct

I live in Australia and buy direct from INCRA, I require to place the order through one of their sales staff as the website is not set up for foreign traffic but I've never had any trouble and the gear has always arrived in a timely manner.

Cheers; Peter M.
