Having one’s car shipped for the first time might make one quite nervous about the shipping process and trusting someone with one’s beloved vehicle. Some might not even know where to start with booking such a shipping. Shipping a car across a country might seem scary enough, but shipping a car into another country is what truly would require some reassurance. But please fear not - shall you decide to ship your car from the US to Canada, we’ve got you covered!

The car shipping industry in Canada is very well-developed, skilled and, dare we say, popular. Canada’s and the US’s automotive industries are deeply intertwined, and thus have strong relationships, with strong reliance on each other.

As a company, we have been trading for many successful years now, regularly operating in both countries, and know first-hand all ins and outs of the car shipping industry between the US and Canada.

Thanks to our large clientele base, raging from individual shipments to large industrials bookings, we have gained experience in every type of vehicle shipping, formed a strong team of skillful drivers, and amassed a large fleet of heavy wreckers, available to us and ready to be used at all times.

Booking with us, you can be sure to have left your vehicle in good hands, and for the vehicle to be delivered safely and on time. Regarding the details of what shipping includes, and how to prepare for it, we have an amazing team of representatives who will guide you through every step, and be there to assist you with any questions you might have. Now, onto some boring yet very necessary details:

Whether you decide to book with us or some other company, always make sure to only book with a company that is fully licensed and fully insured for performing vehicle shipping services (like us!)

It is strongly advised to request a booking at least a week prior to the desired departure date, but the sooner the better. Depending on the season and the destination, some routes get booked up very far in the US, and the state of Florida in particular, is very popular with Canadians as a point of snowbirds' destination, and the Florida to Toronto route, for example, is one that gets very busy once they start heading back.

You will need to submit a copy of your passport or a driving license, a copy of birth certificate and a letter stating a vehicle shipping company is permitted to take your vehicle over the border. Although the company you book with will assist you with everything, make sure your own documents are in order and not past the valid-by date.

Many companies (including us!) offer terminal-to-terminal and even door-to-door delivery services, which proved to be very popular with clients in both the US and Canada, and are very worth looking into.
