I need an import quote – what should I do?

Posted by Tania

I am looking for a quote for an import shipment – how can FlagShip help? Any shipment that does not originate in Canada can be quoted through FlagShip’s online shipping system. Our proprietary online system gives you access to discount shipping rates, saving you up to 70% while giving you free features such as label printing, free supplies, and commercial invoice generation, to make you international shipping easy. Sign-up for a free account and see just how easy it is.

If you wish to speak with someone to go through the quoting process, you can also request an import quote by sending our customer service department an email at quotes@flagshipcompany.com or give us a call at our toll-free number 1-866-320-8386. Our team would be more than happy to assist you with your import quote.

In order to provide you with an accurate import quote, we would need the following information:

  • City, Country and Zip Code where the shipment is being picked up
  • City and Postal Code in Canada where the shipment is being delivered
  • Number of packages
  • Weight and dimensions of each package
  • Customs value

Once we have all of the necessary information, we will return to you with the types of services that are available, the shipping rates, and the transit times.

Please note that not all countries have a zip or postal code.  In this case, detailed address information would be helpful in order to provide the most accurate quote possible.

For more information on import quotes, please contact one of our customer service representatives at 1-866-320-8383 or e-mail us at quotes@flagshipcompany.com.
