Ship Car To Halifax
🇨🇦 Canada, (CA)

Halifax is one of the largest economic centers in Canada and many government services and private employers are in the area. This is an excellent city to move to for social, economic and personal advancement in life. Money Sense Magazine has listed Halifax as the 4th best place to live in Canada and it has been named as one of the best places to live in the world as well as one of the top cities for the future. Roadways in Halifax are in excellent condition for driving and there are many options for public transportation. The drawback to public transportation however, is that it begins to be quite expensive when you need to travel daily and hire a car or take a bus. Using your own car will make things easy for travel and you won’t need to wait on a car or bus to arrive and then chance arriving late or spending the extra out of pocket money to go where you need to go. Taking a bus to the many historical sites or the festivals can often be out of the way for public transport, so having a car is the logical thing to do.

Auto Transport to Halifax.

When you contact an agent at A-1 Auto Transport, they will walk you through the steps to transporting your car to Halifax, will assist with the necessary paperwork for transport as well as customs and will detail every aspect of the shipping bill and transport to Canada from the United States. Fortunately, shipping a car to Canada is a fairly simple matter to accomplish, but you will need to provide some information to the transport company. Information they will need will be:

The license and social will be used to identify you as the owner of the vehicle. The signed Power of Attorney is s standard required document when having another entity relocate your automobile. It essentially gives the carrier legal permission to transport the car without your physical presence.

Car Preparation for Shipping.

You will need to prepare your car for shipment to Canada by doing some of the following prior to the car being loaded onto the carrier:

  • Clean the car inside and out.
  • Make sure fluid levels are full.
  • Check tire pressure.
  • Fully charge the battery.
  • Disable security alarms.
  • Have the fuel level at a quarter tank.
  • Complete a full vehicle inspection with the carrier driver.
  • Pay all shipping fees, taxes and import duties.
  • ‘Make sure all paperwork is complete and turned in.

Your agent will help with the paperwork and will let you know what fees must be paid, if you can waive any fees and what type of transport will work best for your motor vehicle.

Types of Transport to Halifax.

There are a few ways that a person can ship a car to Halifax from the United States.

RORO, or roll/on roll/off is the most preferred way to ship a car. It’s an open transport where cars are driven onto a truck or RORO ship, secured into place and then transported either by land or sea. Shipping rates for this type of transport are generally less than with other types of transport because many cars can be hauled on a RORO carrier at one time, thus lowering the fuel cost per vehicle owner. If you own an expensive car or you need to ship items with the car, another option would be to ship with an enclosed transport carrier or in a shipping container by sea. Enclosed carriers offer added protection from the elements and debris that is often flying around on roadways as well as the weather on the sea. The last way to ship a car to Halifax is to ship by air cargo. Air cargo is generally used for shipping extremely valuable cars and other personal items and is not used as widely as RORO or enclosed shipping.

Crossing the Border.

As you make plans to have your car shipped to Halifax, you will need to prepare for the time that your car crosses the border into Canada from the United States. Customs will need you to pay import duties and taxes prior to the shipment and your motor vehicle title will need to be sent to the border that your car will cross into Canada. They will need this at least 3 days prior to the expected date. You can ship new or used cars into Canada from the U.S. Cars that are older than 10 years are often eligible for exemption from import duties. Your agent will let you know if your car qualifies for any tax or import exemptions. They will also let you know what paperwork you need to provide to Canadian Customs, but the primary paperwork you will need will be your driver’s license and a copy of the motor vehicle title.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my 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.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to 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!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
