Tips for Customers in Canada:
For small orders, we recommend using USPS Priority Mail International for most items. The cost is slightly more but will overall save money. Duties and/or taxes owed are considerably less than UPS. UPS is a much faster service in Canada, however, keep in mind that UPS charges brokerage fees on top of duties and taxes if you do not have a broker.
We are not responsible for completing any export paperwork for domestic shipments. If we ship the order within the US and the ultimate destination of the order is leaving the US, it is not Avinet's responsibility to complete any export paperwork.
Tips for Customers in Mexico:
For the best service to Mexico, we strongly recommend choosing FedEx for your order. There is very little hassle with customs and brokerage services, and packages is most cases have arrived very quickly. The cost to ship is higher, but the overall amount of time and money spent overall on duties and taxes is well worth it. Using UPS to ship your order is the second best choice, but we recommend having an RFC number and having your own customs broker. Brokerage services tendered through UPS can be very costly and the time spent in customs can be long. We do not recommend USPS Priority Mail International for shipments to Mexico.
