For those of you who order from Schaff piano supply, do you pay duty/customs fees when the items get delivered? If so, how much can one expect for an order for $500? Also, how long does delivery take to Ontario, Canada?

Thank you.

My advice is to have the items shipped to you personally, and not to a business address. I also strongly suggest using Canada Post to broker your shipment. I'm pretty sure if you use US postal service, it will be brokered automatically by Canada Post. It may be a little different if you're in a major city like Toronto, but my experience is that UPS and other private carriers have exorbitant brokerage fees, and are slower and more likely to lose your package.
As for exact fees, I'm pretty sure you can find them online at Canada post.
