Shipping Your Vehicle from USA to Canada: Cost Factors and Considerations

If you’re moving to USA toCanada, or just visiting the country for an extended period you may want to bring your vehicle along with you among other things. This isn’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 can’t drive their vehicles into Canada and those people need to look for transport companies to ship the car instead.

Costs could be as little as $800 and as much as several $1,000’s depending on the distance covered, the size of the vehicle, the value of the vehicle and the shipping method used.

Canada or America: Is Your Vehicle an Import or Not?

Importing Goods From Other Countries - Research carriers, breakdown of expenses, model, and transport option

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

Shipping Auto from the US to Canada: Consider the Size of the Vehicle

Large trucks and SUVs that won’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, it’s important to ask about this when speaking with the car shipping company initially.

Consider the Distance

The total distance covered dictates the cost of transport as well. After all the auto shipping company needs to account for road time and fuel. Shipping from New York into southern Canada isn’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 an Shipping Cost

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. It’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 because of exposure to the elements, but the risk is a minor one. By taking that risk you’ll enjoy a lower transport fee than going with an enclosed trailer container to its destination.

The true cost of transportation requires taking into account all of these factors. The corporation will almost definitely produce them, therefore you should do the same.
