Why Is It Difficult for Canadians to Buy a Baby Jogging Stroller

Sep 9, 2008
The big producers of baby jogging strollers realize that the largest market for their products is the USA consumer - and as a result they focus their efforts on establishing retailers that cater to the American market. That is why is it so easy to find a wide array of US retailers on the world wide web that aggressively sell baby jogging strollers.

Many people in Canada are interested in purchasing a baby stroller from a US based retailers and having the stroller shipped to them in Canada - but it is not easy to do.

Canadians can find the stroller they want at many American based on-line retailers, but one of the problems that the Canadian buyer may encounter is that many of the on line retailers do not ship to Canada. And if they do ship to Canada the extra costs of getting the stroller to Canadian customers is prohibitively expensive.

Here is an example of what can happen. Let`s say that you find the jogger that you want on the internet at a price of $279. The extra cost to ship it to a Canadian address is $60 (approximately). And then they have to have the paper work completed in order to clear the item across the border. To do that they hire a custom broker. That adds another $60 in costs. And finally the Canadian government adds on another $22 in import charges.

That $279 stroller is now $279 ($60 $60 22 for a new whopping total of $421 (this is before GST and applicable provincial sales tax).

Even if you do decide to purchase from an American retailer they may not realize all the extras that you will be charged. They are probably not aware that the custom broker will charge the shipper (someone like Fedex) the broker fee and that Fedex will then invoice you for the charge. The retailer probably is not aware that before you can take delivery of the stroller the Canadian government expects you to pay them the $22 duty charges.

The way to solve this problem is to look for retailers that have pricing that has already factored in all the extra shipping, customs, and duties to get your stroller to you in Canada.

Your goal should be to get the stroller that you want and know at the time of purchase what the total cost would be. No surprises! There are Canadian stores on line that sell really good, top quality baby joggers and the prices can be found as little as $279.

So the solution is simple. Merely, search the internet for Canadian retailers that sell the products that they want. By doing this you can make the purchase and delivery so much easier and hassle-free - and at the same time you can save $140 or more on the total cost of your purchase.
