    Arms East Florida - importing to Canada

    Good afternoon,

    I saw your Bradenton Florida location is now open for business and there are some great products listed on the website.

    Will you be offering an import service / ordering from US site and shipping to Canada like an IRUNGUNS scenario?

    Cheers.

    Also interested. I'd love to have the convenience of shopping on the US site and having it shipped without jumping through hoops.

    I bought a gun from the Florida location. They ship it to Canada and then to me. It was easy. It took about 6 weeks from the time I ordered it to reach me. +1

    Did it come in through AE? Or some else

    I've bought from the Florida location before as well but I had to phone the order into the Florida location, specify I'm wanting it shipped to Canada, get put on hold while waiting for a $CAD price quote and eta.

    The process was pleasant HOWEVER there are times where I can go for days on end before I'm able to make phone calls during business hours. The simplicity and convenience of placing an order online whenever I'm able to would be great.

    The order will ship from the US to the AE Canadian location and then out to you from there

    Were there import fee's? Or just straight x 1.35 (for example) exchange rate conversion?

    They just quoted me a final price in $CAD. There was nowhere on the invoice I received where a seperate import fee was charged.

    So - they essentially brought the gun into Canada without charging you any fee to do it? If that is the case, its time to start shopping!

    That's unreal. If that's the case I'm wondering why we haven't heard about this before???

    Armseast, please chime in and fill us all in on what our options are and if there is in fact an importation fee.

    There are quite a few items on your US website I'd be interested in.
