Ship Car To Halifax

Car Shipping Halifax

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:

Your license and social security number will be checked against government databases to verify your identity as the vehicle's legal owner. If you want someone else to drive your car to a new location, they'll need a signed Power of Attorney from you. This document authorizes the carrier to move the vehicle 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.

Ship Your Car Halifax
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.

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.
