UPS ensures that your bowls will arrive unbroken or be replaced. Although I have only had two breakages in all the shipments, it is worth the insurance to keep the bowls safe.
When UPS contracts to bring your purchases into Canada there are extra charges to clear your items through customs. While there is no tariff on your bowls they do charge for clearance as well as the sales taxes applicable.
UPS offers free+* routine customs clearance of UPS Worldwide Expedited®. Check out the cost of shipping expedited if you don't want COD charges.
Use the chart below to calculate the customs brokerage fee for your inbound shipments. The charge is based upon the declared value of the shipment. Please be aware that this cost may change on their website without notice.
