How Much Does It Cost to Ship a Car to Canada from the USA?
๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ Canada, (CA)

If youโ€™re moving to Canada, or just visiting the country for an extended period you may want to bring your vehicle along with you. This isnโ€™t much of an issue if you can just drive it up to the final location, but there are plenty of reasons that people simply canโ€™t drive their vehicles into Canada and those people need to look for transport companies to ship the car instead.

While using a transport company to move a car to Canada is almost always more expensive than driving the car there, it reduces wear on the vehicle, saves you time and is worth the investment for the peace of mind that a professional is handling the job. Before you hire someone to do the work, youโ€™re going to want an idea of how much this task will cost you. The truth is that costs vary widely depending on what you need. Costs could be as little as $800 and as much as several $1,000โ€™s depending on the distance covered, the size of the vehicle, the value of the vehicle and the shipping method used.

Import or Not?

The first question you need to ask yourself is does your vehicle count as an import or not? If itโ€™s going to remain in Canada for good, or it will serve as your daily driver and youโ€™re a Canadian resident then it is an import. If youโ€™re visiting, going to school as a foreigner or working as a foreigner on a temporary visa, the car isnโ€™t an import. If the vehicle is an import youโ€™ll have to pay duties and taxes on it when entering the country, and they can be as much as $2500 if the vehicle is shipping a far distance. Luxury cars or oversize SUVโ€™s may have an added cost on top of the standard transport cost, though some companies work it into the final bill.

Consider the Size of the Vehicle

Large trucks and SUVs that wonโ€™t fit onto a standard trailer space will cost more to ship than a compact car would. Generally, transport companies have a cut off where they will charge more money for an oversized vehicle, itโ€™s important to ask about this when speaking with the company initially.

Consider the Distance

The total distance covered dictates the cost of transport as well. After all the company needs to account for road time and fuel. Shipping from New York into southern Canada isnโ€™t likely to cost as much as shipping from Florida into northern Canada. Consider how many KM must be covered and work that into how much the service will cost.

Think about the Shipping Method

There are two ways to ship a car, by enclosed trailer and by open air trailer. An enclosed trailer is nice for smaller vehicles because it provides protection. Itโ€™s more expensive than open air though because fewer vehicles can be moved at a time with this method. Open air transport puts the vehicle at risk of being damaged during the trip, but the risk is a minor one. By taking that risk youโ€™ll enjoy a lower transport fee than going with an enclosed trailer.

All these considerations must be made to determine how much transport really costs. The company will certainly be making them, so you should as well.
