I use Near North Customs brokers and they charge $150 for the large items like the panel. I’m happy to pay that price to avoid having to spend an entire morning having to travel to the airport on the other end of the city to have the joy of dealing with Customs people. Stein send my panel UPS and the only thing I had to make sure of is that they marked it for outside brokerage.

I used clearit.ca on my c/s prop and it cost a little less than $80 to clear. That was also a UPS shipment. Very simple process.

I offset the time by the fact that Customs rarely bothers collecting the taxes when you go see them. Usually it's a quick glance to make sure the paperwork is in order, confirm that it's not a commercial import, and then they stamp it and send you on your way.
