Car Shipping Kelowna

Kelowna is a large tourist city in the Okanagan Valley of Canada. With many events throughout the year including music and art festivals, skiing and boat races, the city has become a very popular destination for travelers from around the world. Traffic can be very congested on the highways entering the city due to the large number of tourists coming and going and public transportation is a shared resource between Kelowna and the District of Lake County in Central Okanagan. The transit system is often not a very reliable source of transit for residents and visitors and it is suggested to have access to a personal motor vehicle when you need to arrive at your destination on time. With 6 universities and colleges in the city, students from the United States and other countries often relocate for educational purposes. For employment, there are many schools, housing development corporations and tourist attractions like parks, museum and retail shopping centers to work in. Shipping a car into Kelowna is usually not a difficult thing to do as long as you have carefully planned the transport and provided all necessary information to customs.

Automobile Shipment.

As you near the time you will need to have your car shipped to Kelowna, you will need to hire a professional automobile transport company to handle the shipment for you. There will be some things you need to provide to them in advance including:

  • Social Security Card.
  • Driver’s License or Photo Identification.
  • Signed Power of Attorney.
  • Signed Automobile Shipping Contract.

The company will need to know the make, model and manufacture year of the vehicle so they can schedule the correct carrier to pick the car up. You will usually be able to use door to door shipping unless you will need to have the car shipped from one terminal to another.  You will have a shipping contract that will include insurance coverage, the type of transportation that will be used and all fees that will be included in the total cost to ship your motor vehicle.

Customs Rules for Motor Vehicle Imports to Kelowna.

Customs in both the United States as well as Canada have specific rules for exportation and importation of motor vehicles. You will need to file export documents for approval with the United States within 72 hours prior to the car shipping out. You will also need to send a copy of your motor vehicle title to the specific border crossing that the car will go through 72 hours ahead of the expected date of arrival as well. You will need to have your driver’s license and a copy of the motor vehicle title ready for customs as well. You can import a personal car that is new or used. Cars manufactured in the United States are generally up to date with the Canadian motor vehicle standards but if the car was manufactured in another country you may need to have alterations to emissions, brakes or headlights. Your transport agent will be able to let you know if anything will need to be taken care of mechanically prior to shipment.

How to Transport.

You can have your automobile transported with the use of either open or enclosed transport via the interstate or the sea. The following are the types of transport available to ship a car from the United States to Kelowna:

RORO- RORO, or roll-on roll-off transport is the most used way to ship a car throughout the world today. RORO is a type of open transport where cars are loaded onto trucks or ships and not sealed inside a container. Cars must be shipped alone with nothing left inside them during open transport and your shipping agent will let you know what steps to take to prepare the car for shipment. RORO is the least expensive mode of automobile transport available to ship a car from the U.S. to Canada.

Enclosed- Enclosed, or containerized shipping is preferred by owners of valuable classic and luxury model automobiles that need to have more protection to reduce the risk of damage during shipment. Enclosed transport cost more than open transport but is valuable to those that may need to relocate their personal belongings with the car.

Air- Shipping a car by air is usually reserved for very expensive exotic and luxury automobiles. It is the most expensive way to transport a car but it is also the fastest.

When you speak to your automobile transport agent they will be able to help you schedule the type of transport and will be able to arrange for pickup and delivery to and from the sea port if you will be shipping by sea instead of interstate transportation.

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.

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.
