I stopped by a local cat dealer here in NY, he gave me a price of 7700+tax and reg. for a ZR900 out the door. I was told by a friend that he was in canada late last winter and met up with an owner of a new ZR900 and us it figured out to be $6300. how does it work if I went to canada to buy a new sled. Can someone give me dollar examples. Thanks guys!
well oldrob, buying a sled in canada is a very smart thing to do. you save SO MUCH money. take this sled for example, a 2003 PRO X 800 is $8,399 US, and 11,199 in canadian money. So if you went up to canada and paid 11,999 canadian dollars, you would actually only be spending $7,619 US bucks. a REV 800 X is $9200 US dollars, it is selling for $12,500 canadian dollars up in canada, converted back to US funds, that is only $7,937 US dollars, so your saving more then $1000 bucks.
What's involved in bringing it back across the border? If you have to pay a huge duty it may not be worth it. I've never bought a vehicle and tried to bring it back, but I gotta believe the border guys aren't just going to wave you through with a brand new sled on the trailer.
I would think that if you purchased a sled in Canada after you get it back to the states you would most likely have to pay the state tax when you go to register? Not sure on how they would judge the taxable amount "Used or what you payed"? If buying in Canada was really that much cheaper all the border state dealers would be out of business!
Regarding buying a sled in Canada and bringing it across the border, there shouldn't be any import duties, taxes or tarrifs. It should be covered under NAFTA (North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement). I don't know about the warranty.
Elmer's in Rogers City, Michigan had a 2003 ZR900 for less than $100 above 7 grand. I can't remember the exact price, I believe it was $7036. I snow checked my F7 Team Arctic in April, for $6752. :doh:
:angry: those of you guys that go with the first offer need to start shopping around. dude they told me 7700 for my 900 and i'm like eh no. so i shopped around and jude them down going dealer to dealer. it was a not hard thing to do. 03 ZR 900 6500 out the door.
