Default Any MOD1 owners in Canada?

Hi just curious to any MOD1 owners in Canada.

I'm very interested in this machine it's simplicity of being modular and the quality of print. However hesitant due to the company being in the US with no Canadian dealer for support or supplies.

How do you Canadian owners deal with the import duty of this machine and also dealing with the getting the inks or service?

Does anyone know how much the brokerage fee is to get this machine and inks across the border?

Thanks any help is appreciated.

Are there any Canadian supplier of this ink or is the ink a proprietary thing of Belquette?

Belquette only sells direct. We have no distributors. We do have some customers that live in Canada. Hopefully they can answer some of your questions about the duties.

The Mod1 is made in the USA, so there should be no duties from the US to Canada due to our trade agreements.

1. No duty....duty free.

2. Clear at the border by yourself. You would save a lots of $$. We hired a broker "A&A....." few years ago, they ruined the process. They sent the printer to another province and told the border agency it is here. Of course, we got a ticket from border agency and "A&A...." refused to pay the fine. Since then, we clear imported goods ourself...save a lots of money and it is so easy.

Good luck
