    I've never had any experience buying either long distance used, or moving equipment across the border, so I'm coming here.

    We are looking for more snow machines for winter use only, and it seems like there are pretty good deals to be had both in Canada and long distances away.

    Obviously long distance is what it is, hope it's represented honestly and get videos proving cold starts, etc. But what about bringing them down from Canada? Obviously if I went to get it myself I'd have to have a passport to cross the border, but what other hassles will/might I run into?

    Advice?

    The import duty for foreign trucks into the US is 25%. The rates vary depending upon the country of origin.
