We had purchased a Wilmar high clearance sprayer in Kansas and had it shipped to Wanham, Alberta. This proved to be interesting as we were 2300 miles away from the machine. With some great help from Rithie Bros Auctions we got the dimensions together and some very interesting questions and quotes from the folks on uShip. Overall we learned a lot about customs and how interesting things can get when your broker drops the ball and your trucker is already on the way when you discover that even though you gave the broker over two weeks notice they haven't given the 72 hour notice to customs.
