Snowbirds Car Shipping Transportation

Licensing, Insurance and Other Considerations

Regardless of how you get your car down to the U.S., you’ll need to look after the following items before you leave for your winter destination:

1. Driver’s License: make sure you renew your driver’s license and vehicle registration before you leave for the winter.

2. Insurance: most Canadian auto insurers limit the amount of time you can have your vehicle outside Canada to 6 months, but this can vary so be sure to check with your insurance company and read your policy.

And to avoid issues at the border, you will need to provide following documents:

  • If your car has personal belongings in it, be sure to fill out a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Form 3299;
  • If your car has personal belongings in it, be sure to complete a Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) Form E-15 Certificate of Destruction/Exportation that accurately lists all of your personal items to avoid paying duty and taxes on these personal items when you return to Canada in the spring;
  • When you return to Canada in the spring, a copy of a completed CBSA Form E-24 Personal Exemption CBSA Declaration listing all of the items being driven back in your car, along with a copy of the completed Form E-15 when your vehicle entered the U.S.
  • A letter of authorization, a copy of your vehicle ownership registration and insurance, and a photocopy of your passport;
