A SPECIAL WELCOME TO OUR

CANADIAN BUYERS

It's a GREAT TIME to be buying in the United States with the current exchange rate!!

We are pleased to welcome you to our auctions.

We can store your purchases inside our facility for up to 14 days if you wish.

To buy snowmobiles here at the auction and transport them across the border,

here is what Canadian buyers from previous auctions this year have told us they do---

(all the buyers we have talked to have crossed at Port Huron, Michigan-

we assume this information is valid for the other entry points, too)

When they have bought snowmobiles at the auction, as of November 2011,

they indicated that you will have to submit copies of your invoice

and title or registration or Certificate of Origin to the U.S. Customs office

at least 72 hours prior to your crossing the border.

Be sure that you buy only snowmobiles that have a registration or title or Certificate of Origin.

You can NOT take snowmobiles into Canada that have only a bill of sale.  

You will pay your Canadian fees at the Canadian Customs and head home!

If you buy an item with a TITLE (for example, a 4 wheeler ATV, a street bike, car, truck)

they said you need to submit copies of your invoice and title to the U.S. Customs office

where you will cross at least 72 hours prior to your crossing the border. Since the item has a title,

you will need to get into the line on the US Customs side marked for "titles vehicles".

FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: If you need information about Canadian Border Customs requirements,

you can call the Canadian Border Services Agency at: (English) -- 1- 800- 461- 9999  or

(French) -- 1 - 800 - 959 - 2036or visit them at www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca For U.S. Customs requirements,

visit www.customs.gov or contact the port crossing directly at the location where you

will you will crossing into Canada---for example, Port Huron, Detroit, etc.....

* When you come to our auction, you will want to buy only those snowmobiles or ATVs

that have a state registration -or- Certificate of Origin -or- a title.

You must have one of these documents along with the White Star Auction "bill of sale"

in order to get across the border. The items in the auction are tagged with this information,

so you will know during inspection which items come with the required documents.
