Can any type of vehicle be Moving into Canada?

No, as it is in the United States, the Canadian government has rules and regulations in place stating what kinds of vehicles are allowed into Canada by Car Shipping.

How do I know what vehicles are allowed into Canada from the U.S.?

Simply check with the RIV(Registrar of Imported Vehicles, in the appropriate province. The RIV can assist you and give you a list on the types of vehicles that are admissible or inadmissible into Canada. Also research other agencies that may offer answers to the questions on what vehicle may or may not enter into Canada. It goes without saying that you need to make sure you complete this process prior to Auto Transporting.

What documentation is required to Ship my vehicle into Canada?

At minimum, you need the ORIGINAL title, bill of sale, recall letter, registration and a copy of your passport. It is al so a good idea to check with the the local government to see if any of this has changed.

What if my vehicle does not have a title? Can I still ship my vehicle into Canada?

No, the residing border and customs governing bodies (U.S. Customs and Border Protection) are obviously very strict when releasing a vehicle into Canada. No ORIGINAL vehicle title means no entry into Canada by Car Moving.

Why does U.S. Customs have a say (about what goes into Canada)?

Anything (vehicle or person) that legally exits the borders of the U.S. into Canada, will have to cross through a U.S. borders to get into Canada. Therefore, it makes sense that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection work together to protect the United States and Canada.

At a minimum, the vehicle must roll and steer, have a functioning emergency brake, and tires should be properly inflated. We at Car Shipping do not Transport wrecked vehicles of any kind.

A good rule of thumb is 10 to 14 days. However, several variables exist such as like road conditions, weather,potential border issues and customers’ availability that may have a negative impact on the transit time.

How long is a Transport quoted good for?

The shipping quotes from Car Shipping are figured and based on fuel and demand. The quote that is given to you is good for seven business days. But, Car Shipping, reserves the right to adjust any and all quotes.

What if the truck can’t get to my location for pick up of my vehicle?

The driver will try to get as close to you door as is safe and legal. Cities may have restrictions on trucks that possibly prohibit them from driving into certain residential areas. Transport truck can be as long as 75 feet in length and weigh in excess of 78,000 pounds. They are intentionally build low to the ground and need lots of space to maneuver and turn around. If you think your home may be in a restricted area or the streets are narrow with low-hanging trees, speed bumps or tight turns, the driver may request that you meet the truck at a different destination, like a shopping center or major street crossing.

What will it cost to Vehicle Transport from U.S. to Canada?
