End Result:

Importing various garage door parts from the U.S., Gene has found our services to be of great value. Gene at Hardline Overhead Doors was paying roughly $ 75.00 for a shipment of parts and motors valued at $ 600.00. Paying that much for customs brokerage fees on a low value shipment made Gene search for a better option. Through a reference Gene came across our customs brokerage services and is now paying a third of what he used to pay in customs brokerage fees. Gene is no longer reluctant to order important parts from his various U.S. suppliers and is happily saving roughly $ 400 a month off clearance fees.
