From Ontario to British Columbia, Canadians know how harsh our winters can be. That’s why so many of us fly south for the winter—but you can’t fly with your car.

Snowbird transportation services deliver your car right to your door when you migrate south for the winter. The process is incredibly simple, and it can save you time and money. We’re going to show you how. 

Snowbird Transport: What It Is

We all know what snowbirds are. Canadians get cold in the winter, and we migrate (just like literal snowbirds) down south. Snowbird car transport is a service offered to those snowbirds—rather than driving your car down south, you get a company (like ours) to drive it down for you!

The service is incredibly convenient; instead of having to spend days driving to your destination, you can fly out. Your car will arrive shortly after you do (depending on how you time delivery), and you won’t have to worry about any of the major inconveniences that tend to pop up during long road trips.

Your car will arrive at its destination safe and sound. You won’t need to buy another car for your home in the States. Once you’re ready to come home in the spring, we’ll transport your car back for you—it’s simple, it’s convenient, and it’s a service built for snowbirds. 

How To Obtain Snowbird Transport

To get your car transported to and from the United States, all you have to do is contact a transportation service like Professional Car Carriers. Generally, it’s a good idea to arrange for transportation about two months ahead of when you’ll need it—that can help you secure the best rates and ensure that your vehicle will arrive on the right date.

There are a few documents you’ll need in order to ensure smooth sailing when the transportation agency reaches the border with your vehicle. A photocopy of your passport and driver’s licence, a customs form for any of the items in your vehicle, and a letter authorizing the transportation company to transport your vehicle over the border.

We’ll tell you exactly which documents you’ll need when you arrange for transport with us, so don’t worry about memorizing all of the above. Our goal is to make snowbird transportation as effortless as possible!
