    Hey guys,

    I'm jumping from a pickup a trailer to a straight truck for our business. I found a Volvo truck with a 24' box that seems like it would work perfect for us.

    The only problem is it is in Canada. The price is right, but I am concerned with import duties and taxes.

    The information I found relates to imports duties of 25%. But I am not clear if this applies to this Volvo that was manufactured in the US.

    The US dollar is strong and bringing down the Canadian prices. But if I am wasting money with import duties of 25%, it may not be worth it.

    Does anyone have real world experiences for buying CMVs from Canada? What other issues am I facing ahead if I make this purchase?

    Any helpful input would greatly be appreciated.
