"People often find us through a search engine. They may come for the price, but the stay for the service" - Adam Lewis (co-founder Clearit.ca)

A customs broker is an invaluable service provider to anyone importing to Canada. They act as the intermediary between the importer and Canadian Customs. Many years ago, customs brokers would be seen running to every port to obtain customs releases. In today's digital age, most customs brokers have abandoned their typewriters and moved away from the ports relying almost solely on electronic means of communication with Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). In most cases, a customs broker is given the information on the shipment, digitizes it to a specific required format and presents the request for release to the CBSA, to which the CBSA will respond electronically as well.
Even after the advent of EDI technology, what remained almost unchanged was the way in which the importer communicated with a customs broker. Finding a customs broker in Canada can easily be done, but getting them on the phone, having a power of attorney set up and working out the pricing and payment details could sometimes be an arduous task that could take hours if not days. When you find yourself in the need of a Canadian Customs Broker, this may be valuable time wasted.

Signup is simple, even for first time importers.

The response from the importing community has been great says Adam Lewis (co-founder of Clearit.ca). "A typical client is a small-medium importer either searching for a new customs broker or importing for the first time. We also service many US-based clients with Non-Resident importing programs. Once they see how easy we are to work with, the decision is simple. Some people don't even realize that they are saving money at the same time as getting a NOW service" says Adam. "We certainly don't act our price. We give a full service to our clients and are still able to charge them a relatively low fee" he notes. Adam credits operational efficiencies and streamlined processes that help minimize costs.
