Edmonton is the capital of Canada’s Alberta province, and the fifth-largest municipality in the country. Its location deep inland means the city itself has no port, but fortunately, gently rolling terrain and a vast network of rail and road connections provide easy trade access to destinations all over Canada and internationally.

What are my shipping options?

  • Roll-on/Roll-off Shipping): The most economical option, Ro/Ro shipping sees your vehicle driven aboard a carrier and off again at the final destination. Vehicles are secured in place with heavy-duty straps during transit.
  • Container Shipping: Those with especially valuable vehicles may opt for the use of cargo containers, rather than risking leaving vehicles exposed to the elements. This offers an additional layer of protection that’s appropriate for antique vehicle transport and similar needs.

There are options for delivery as well: for maximum convenience, try door-to-door service, in which the shipper collects your car right from your doorstep and transports it to the place of your choice within Edmonton. Terminal-to-terminal services are more affordable, though they require customers to drop off and pick-up the vehicle themselves at the terminals of departure and arrival, respectively.

Will I need to complete lots of paperwork?

Fortunately, close coordination between the US and Canadian governments has streamlined the shipping process, and it’s a relatively pain-free process. You will need to arrive with the following documents in tow:

  • The vehicle’s original title, or a certified copy.
  • Photo ID.

The title must be submitted to the border crossing at least 72 hours in advance, as per the aptly named US Customs 72 Hour Export Law. Note as well that some vehicles may be restricted – check the Canadian Registrar of Imported Vehicles for an overview of exactly which ones are admissible into Canada.

How can I ensure my vehicle is prepared?

Following these steps will get your vehicle ready for shipping quick:

  • Clean and vacuum the car to speed along the inspection process.
  • Hold onto personal effects – they should not be left in the vehicle.
  • Check the functionality of the brakes.
  • Conserve battery life by shutting off the alarm system.
  • Remove external accessories, like bike racks or auxiliary antennae.
  • Fill the fuel tank to roughly 25% of capacity.
