SL1 to Canada

Hooray my printer finally shipped! It’s been held in customs for days but finally got released today and should be for delivery tomorrow, only 1 day later than expected.

If there are any other Canadians who are looking at this printer, it cost an additional $176.10 CDN for taxes, duty and fees through DHL. This is for the SL1 + CW1 and 4 kg of resin by the way, not just the printer. 

I was fully expecting to have to pay the entire 13% Ontario tax rate plus any other ransom (which would have been around $500) they may have decided to throw on it. So I hope that this is a consistent figure to work with and others don’t get hit with a higher fee.

Happy printing

RE: SL1 to Canada

Were you a day one order?  I ordered mine on the second day (23rd), but there has been no update in the Prusa order history, still showing as "On backorder".

I’m not sure when day one was, so I doubt it. Did you order the kit or the assembled version? 

When I heard how long the kits would take I decided to go for the assembled after ordering.

I ordered the kit version, I thought that having to assemble it myself would mean I would get it faster 🙁

I should have switched as well, I didn't pick up that was an option that retained your place in line...

Well yesterday I received my tracking number, and today I received the invoice from DHL for taxes, duties and customs for $325 CAD!  Very arbitrary.

$224 Kit version to BC, did not see this coming, but it seems like PST+GST + ~$30 for custom clearance.

$357 for SL1 Kit + CW1 + 2 kg of bonus resin to Toronto.

Build was fun and first two prints were pretty much flawless, so I'm not complaining too much.
