Vehicle Pick-up/Delivery Options in Ontario

At Professional Car Carriers, we understand that flexibility and convenience are key when it comes to car shipping. That's why we offer both door-to-door and terminal-to-terminal car shipping options, catering to your specific needs and preferences. For those in Ontario, our door-to-door service offers the ultimate convenience. For an additional fee, our skilled drivers will deliver your vehicle right to your doorstep, eliminating the need for you to travel to a terminal. This service is particularly beneficial for those with tight schedules or for whom traveling to a terminal may be inconvenient. Alternatively, our terminal-to-terminal service is an excellent choice for those who prefer a more hands-on approach. We will arrange a pick-up or drop-off time that aligns perfectly with your schedule.

  • Terminal-to-Terminal: You'll need to meet the transport truck at a designated commercial area in any city across Ontario for pickup or delivery. The truck driver will get in touch with you to finalize a meeting location. Additionally, a car dealership may serve as an alternative terminal location.

  • Door-to-door: In Ontario, your vehicle will be picked up and delivered straight to your doorstep, though additional fees will apply. We offer both trucking and driving service methods for this process. After collection, your vehicle will be moved to the shipping terminal, where it will await departure on the primary transport truck.

Car Shipping Pricing and Quotes in Ontario

If you’re wondering how much car shipping services cost in Ontario, here’s what you need to know. When considering the cost of shipping your vehicle with Professional Car Carriers, several key factors come into play. At the forefront is the distance over which your car will be transported, as this directly influences the overall price. However, there are additional aspects to consider:

  • Travel Distance: The longer the distance between the pickup and drop-off locations, the higher the cost.

  • Vehicle Weight: The weight of your car plays a significant role in determining the shipping cost. Heavier vehicles may require more resources for safe transportation, potentially affecting the price.

  • Vehicle Size: Similarly, the size of your vehicle matters. Larger vehicles, such as SUVs or trucks, take up more space and may necessitate special accommodations during transport, which can influence the cost.

  • Vehicle Modifications: Any modifications to your vehicle, such as customizations or alterations that affect its size or weight, can also impact the final shipping cost. These modifications might require special handling or equipment during the transport process.

  • Location Accessibility: Shipping costs may rise if the pickup or drop-off points are in remote or hard-to-access areas.

FAQs

WHERE CAN I SHIP MY CAR TO or FROM?

At Professional Car Carriers, we pride ourselves on offering extensive vehicle transportation services across both Canada and the United States. Our primary focus is on delivering to the major cities across various provinces and states, ensuring that we cover major urban centers and meet the high demand in these areas.

However, our services extend beyond these primary locations. We understand that your needs may vary, and you might require vehicle transportation to other cities or towns. To accommodate these special requests, we offer personalized shipping solutions tailored to reach even the less frequented destinations. Get in touch with our team today for more information.

Is it necessary for me to be present at the time of pick up and delivery?

Yes, someone needs to be there to hand over and receive the vehicle, give the keys to the driver, and sign off on the initial and final inspection reports. This individual can be anyone you trust who is over 18 years old and authorized to release or accept your vehicle on your behalf.

Can I ship my car with personal items inside?

You may ship your personal belongings inside your vehicle within Canada as long as they are below the window level. We do not charge extra for items that are inside the trunk of your vehicle. There is a charge of $150 plus tax added to the transport fee for large items in the front or back seat. For safety reasons, we don’t allow dangerous goods like alcohol or prohibited items in the vehicles for shipping.

Can I track my car during the shipping process?

Absolutely! At Professional Car Carriers, we understand the importance of staying informed about the status of your vehicle throughout the shipping process. To ensure you are kept up-to-date, we encourage you to either call or email our team for real-time updates on your vehicle's location and progress.

When should I schedule my vehicle transport?

For optimal alignment with your vehicle transport needs, early scheduling is key. We suggest arranging the shipment of your vehicle around 2 to 3 weeks in advance of the necessary date. Such proactive planning enhances our ability to cater precisely to your specific requirements, ensuring a more efficient and customized transport experience.

We recognize, however, that there may be occasions when you require a faster shipping solution. For these more urgent scenarios, Professional Car Carriers offers expedited shipping services. These services are specially designed to address urgent transport needs, providing a swift yet reliable alternative.
