I need some information on items shipped from Canada to the US, I purchased a track pin press from a company that manufactures them in Canada, now that the company is ready to ship the company is saying the customs broker needs my social security number, no way will I give that to them, what is required to have an item shipped from Canada to the US as far as customs?

Thanks

just for the record it is US Customs wanting paperwork not  Canada Customs. Canada Customs doesn't care what's crossing into the USA. If there are any fees etc the USA wants them collected. Call US Customs . If you are not too far away you can go pick it up yourself and I believe you can act as your own broker at the border

It goes both ways

Not to derail the thread, but what kind of pin press did you get? 

Bison Power Tools, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. www.bisonpowertools.com. I purchased the KPP100-110 mobile press.

Thanks guys, I will contact customs here in the US.

You need either an EIN if you have a business or the SS# if not. The following link describes this situation.

Thanks. That explains why I've never been asked for a SS# as I've never been over $1000.

Latest thing was an aircraft engine cylinder assembly. It was an overhauled assembly, $900. Customs broker fee was $50., shipping $40 from Newfoundland.

EDIT: It was $900 CA so about $700+ US.
