Why get a lower bill? It's a business expense, a tax write off for equipment, he's only screwing himself with a lower bill.
They will ding you GST/HST which...who cares you claim it back anyways.
Bringing stuff across the border isn't a big deal, just do it yourself, shipping it across is expensive, shippers charge a good fee plus brokerage on top of that makes it really expensive, pick it up yourself and your fine.
