Shipping a vehicle to Kingston could be quite seamless, especially if you decide to rely on the services of a transport company such as the A1 Auto Transport service. Hiring a reputable shipping agent is going to guarantee that your vehicle is going to be taken care of properly throughout the entire process and it’s going to arrive safely. You are going to have to ensure that all of the information is properly provided to the customs. The shipping company should have the necessary documents required for the shipping. They include:

  • Social Security card.
  • Title deed.
  • Driver’s License.
  • Power of Attorney – signed.

The shipping agent at A1 Auto Transport is going to go through all of the details and we will explain what you are going to need and how the car is going to get transported. They will inform you how to actually prepare the car for the process. The preparation includes some of the following, of not all of them:

  • Vacuum cleaning the entire vehicle inside and out.
  • Filling all of the fluids.
  • Changing the batter.
  • Have ¼ of the gas tank full.
  • Disable security systems.
  • Remove all items from the interior and exterior.

All of these are going to guarantee that there are no unnecessary delays at the customs prior to getting clearance. This is going to ensure that the entire process is going to be hassle-free and quick.

The truth is that shipping to Canada might actually get rather expensive, depending on the exit point in the USA. For the majority of the customers, the shipping itself is going to cost somewhere between $700 and about $2,500. However, if your vehicle is actually eligible for the shipment according to the Transport Canada and CBSA requirements, you are also going to have to pay duty, excise tax, and 5% GST.  If you import from outside of the USA, you are also going to be required to pay 8% provincial part when you license your vehicle.

Papers and documents for import.

Once you decide to ship your vehicle, you will need to gather up all the necessary paperwork and turn them into the United States Customs and the Canadian Customs. You will need to submit the paperwork at least seventy-two hours in advance of when you need to ship your vehicle. You will need to have this much time to process everything and verify the information you supplied on the forms. Your documents need to arrive in both customs at least seventy two hours in advance. All duties will need to be paid for before any vehicle can be transported. Cars that are manufactured in the United States normally pass all emissions regulations but if you have a vehicle manufactured in the EU or any other country, you need to have modifications done before your vehicle can be transported.

Shipping Methods.

You are given a wide range of shipping options. If you want to get your car to Kingston, you can choose between:

  • Air Shipping - This is the quickest and most convenient way to get your vehicle transported. However, it’s particularly expensive and a lot of people refrain from it.
  • Open Car Carrier – this is the traditional Roll On/Roll Off shipping method and it’s going to allow you to transport your vehicle quickly and without additional hassle. It’s also the cheapest and fastest water-bound transportation method. However, you wouldn’t be able to ship any personal belongings.
  • Enclosed Car Carrier – this particular method is also known as container shipping. You can choose between 20ft and 40ft container in which you can store as many personal belongings as you can. It is, however, more expensive and slower than RORO because of the higher amount of checkpoints.

Documentation and Customs.

When it comes to handling the paperwork, it is absolutely mandatory for you to send the filled documents to the U.S. Customs at least 72 hours in advance. If you work with A1 Auto Shipping, we are going to take care of this. What is more, you would have to provide the Canadian Customs Authority with a whole lot of different documentation such as your driver’s license, a title of the vehicle, registration and much more.

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!
