Moving Companies To Quebec from the UK

Quebec Province in Canada almost feels like a country within a country. Unlike the rest of Canada, French is the predominant language spoken in Quebec. Most residents are bilingual and are newcomers are attracted to the area’s rich bicultural heritage. Canada’s shared history with the UK means that even with the slight language barrier, residents of the UK could feel right at home in Quebec.

If you are moving from the UK to Quebec, you may want to bring your vehicle or personal property with you. How can you import goods into Canada? Is it affordable?

When it comes to importing a vehicle to Quebec, there are several factors to consider.

This guide will help make importing a vehicle from the UK to Canada a smooth and easy process.

Can I Import my Personal Items to Canada?

Canada very generously allows you to bring your household goods into the country tax and duty-free, provided that your goods are exclusively for personal use. Exceptions include those items intended for agriculture or business.

Tax and duty-free imports include:

  • Clothing, jewelry and personal effects
  • Linens, dishes and housewares
  • Furniture
  • Household appliances
  • Tools

Can I import a vehicle to Canada from the UK?

In most cases, no. Vehicles not manufactured for sale in Canada or the United States are prohibited from importation into Canada. As with all things, there are a few exemptions, such as:

• Vehicles more than 15 years old
• Buses manufactured before January 1st 1971.
• Non-regulated classes such as towable mobile homes or side cars for motorcycles
• Vehicles of any type or origin that are compliant vehicles being re-imported back into Canada (evidence will be required)
• U.S. compliant vehicles owned and driven in the U.S.

Do I have to pay taxes when importing a vehicle to Canada?

If you do happen to have a vehicle eligible for import into Canada, you may have to pay duties, excise taxes, and GST (Goods and Services Taxes) on your vehicle when you import it to Canada. Contact customs before you finalize your shipping arrangements to determine what you will owe.

Modifications After Import

As previously mentioned, Canadian safety regulations do not make provisions for modifications after import. Any vehicle that needs modification to be legally driven in Canada is not eligible to be imported to Canada.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

A1 Auto Transport... From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
