Exports from the U.S. to Canada, Australia, New Zealand and beyond:
It’s complex stuff. Shipping guns legally across borders is incredibly complex, with nearly a dozen government agencies involved a typical cross-border transaction. The penalties for non-compliance are steep, and the rules are constantly changing. You need an expert you can trust, who will treat your guns with the respect they deserve.
Our passion is making this painfully complex process surprisingly simple™ for you.
We make it easy, cost-effective, and time-efficient. This is our mission. Our passion is making this painfully complex process surprisingly simple for you. We believe you should be able to purchase a firearm you are legally allowed to own, and not have to worry, stress and spend a fortune getting it home. So, as the governments make it increasingly more difficult to accomplish this, we are constantly working to make it increasingly more simple for you.
Borderview International is uniquely positioned to offer efficient exports to Canada. Due to our close proximity to the Canadian border (less than 4 miles), working with Borderview will save you time and money on shipping and customs clearance. We have an office in Canada too, just across the border from our U.S. office, which means we take care of all the paperwork on both sides of the border for you—visit our to learn more!

Imports from Canada to the U.S.
We bring unique value to firearm imports from Canada:
1. We’re located less than 5 minutes from the border.
Our office in the border town of Lynden, Washington means that we’re able to save you hundreds of dollars on transportation costs alone! Most other firearm importers will require expensive air freight to their nearest international airport, on top of expensive Customs age fees. We clear Customs ourselves, in-person, only a short drive from our office — included in our base prices!
2. We have an office just across the border in B.C., where you can mail the guns and we take care of the rest.
We are also a licensed firearms dealer in British Columbia, Canada, which allows us to facilitate a smooth cross-border transaction of your firearm(s). Because the guns you want to import to the U.S.A. may not already be near our local border crossings that we typically use, shipping them to our Canadian office will allow us to personally and physically take them across the border when all permits are approved! Shipping instructions (including B.C. office address) will be provided for your use when needed.
3. We’ve been importing guns as a service for over 50 years!
Our founder’s grandfather, Jude VanderHoek, had a gun shop in the border town of Lynden, Washington starting in 1957, and ever since the family has helped Canadians with cross-border firearm transactions.
