Declaring alcohol at the border ?
Looks like you save about $10 per 1.75 L you declare. What is your time worth?
Now that being said, we bring what is allowed duty free and buy beer in Ontario. I have been going to Ontario for 14-15 years. Some year we even take two trips. About 5-6 years ago, we had a little more of a party group and we had extra beer and extra bottles. Two rigs with 3 guys in each. First rig straight through, didn't even have to pay duty. My rig, was not so lucky. We got pulled in and tore apart. They unloaded the entire truck, the suit cases, coolers...everything. They went through the cab of the truck under the hood, in the back of the box, even let the spare tire down. Then they moved onto the boat. Took everything out of my storage went through the storage areas with flash lights and a fine tooth comb. Opened tackle boxes up, took rods our of travel cases. Even dumped our crawlers out of the bedding and onto a tarp.
It took the two boarder agents about an 90 minutes to go through everything. Took us about 35-40 minutes to repack everything. When were were all done, we still had to go inside and pay our duty....this took another 20-25 minutes.
Not worth my time or energy to repack the truck and boat to save $15 or $20 so we now just bring the 1 L per man of booze and buy a couple cases of beer when we get into Ontario.
