Impressed by border services

We recently purchased an old classic Chevrolet pickup truck in Oregon and the purpose of this letter is to express our thanks for a wonderful experience we had on both sides of the border with Canadian and U.S. customs.

Everyone was helpful, as we had never brought a vehicle purchase across the border before, and they walked us carefully through all the steps. A special thank you to Canadian customs agent Tracy. He went over all the items two and three times to make sure we understood what we had to do. We were very grateful to him for his patience with an elderly couple like us.

We had to stay overnight in Sumas and our son picked us up Sunday morning. We stayed at the Border Hotel – just like a Motel 6 very inexpensive. The next morning we asked the staff, “Where is there a good place  to eat?” They recommended Bob’s Cafe. It was another wonderful experience. Sunday brunch was the best we have ever had and would recommend everyone put it on their must stop at list. It was a great weekend in Sumas.
