Why Ship Your Car To Canada?

It’s a common misconception that shipping your car is a luxury service and that it’s much cheaper to just do everything yourself. When you factor in the cost of fuel, wear and tear on your car, the time put into researching, the long wait at the border, and the potential fees if the proper forms aren’t signed or if they’re filled out incorrectly, the choice is clear. When you ship your car, you can skip the line and fly across the border and your car will meet you there.

Reasons for Transport

Any time you’re transporting a vehicle from the US to Canada, you must follow specific procedures. These are based on the reason for your import and are a major part of the pricing and timing involved in shipping your vehicle. Most of the forms that must be filed will be situation-specific, and their team is here to make sure you get the proper forms filed and everything is ready to go. No matter what your individual reason for shipping is, it will fall under one of these four reasons.
