Canadian Resident


We believe that you can save big bucks by shopping with Centaur Forge (CF). Our prices are generally 15% to 30% lower than the website prices quoted by Canadian Distributers. Go on their websites and compare. You have two ways to save big:

DRIVE TO THE BORDER: this works best when you are buying a lot of stuff.

NEVER LEAVE HOME/CANADA POST: great for high value small bulk items.

Near every Canadian/USA border crossing there are businesses who will receive packages for Canadians to pick up. We will ship your order there for $14.95 flat rate (Coal and Coke do not qualify for Flat Rate Shipping; see terms and conditions for complete details). Fees for these services are nominal and all the operations named below accept packages and many also accept standard pallets of goods. Use the tracking information we send you to know when it is delivered then drive over and get it. In most cases these operations will email or call you when the goods are received. Call them to understand costs and their preferred mode of operation and what contact information they want on the shipping label. Here are four options:

www.kinek.com is a company that specializes in receiving packages for Canadians. Go to www.shiptotheborder.com to get complete directions as to how to find your closest border location and how to sign up.

UPS Stores. These are independent stores that operate under the UPS banner. The stores in the USA close to border crossings, for a reasonable fee, will receive packages and in many cases standard pallets and will let you know when they are received. Use www.theupsstore.com to find a location.

FedEx. Their office centers will receive packages, let you know they have arrived and do it for no fee if pick-up is prompt. The office centers will not receive pallets but FedEx Freight locations will provide a similar service for pallets. Use www.fedex.com to explore this option.

Independent Cross Border Companies. See examples below. They operate similar to UPS Stores.

See below for a list of the package/pallet pick-up locations for most border crossings across Canada. If we ship to a US address, sales tax is charged for all Wisconsin, Illinois, Oklahoma, Indiana and Kansas orders. No sales tax is charged for orders from other states. Shipping is only $14.95

Your additional costs are the fees at pick up, import duties and the GST/HST tax. Import duties should be zero if the product is manufactured in the USA because of NAFTA. For non-US manufactured goods, the import duties vary depending on the classification of the product. Centaur Forge will provide a detailed invoice, including country of origin if requested, to aid you in clearing Canadian Customs.

The United States Postal Service option delivers significant savings.

A TIP: Use a credit card that does not charge a foreign currency transaction fee. One choice is the Chase Marriott Rewards Card. Call 888-771-3202 for more info.

Canadian BLACKSMITHS: You can get the same deal. We have the largest offering of Coal and Coke Forges in the world plus a wide array of tools. Our Coal and Coke Forges are completely manufactured in the USA, and because of NAFTA, there should be no import duties. This is also true of many of our other products as well.
