Ship Your Car to or from Moncton
The city of Moncton is located in Westmoreland County in the southeastern part of New Brunswick Province, Canada. This city is located in the Petitcodiac River Valley; Moncton is located in the center of the Maritime Provinces.
Moncton is called the "Hub City" because it is centrally located in the region and it has deep railway history and land transport hubs for all Maritimes.
If you want to ship a vehicle to Moncton, you will need the assistance of a reputable transport company like A1 Auto Transport Service. When you hire a transport company like A1, you are choosing a less stressful way to transport your vehicle with a company that is well known for transporting a vehicle within all rules and regulations. Once you hire A1 Transport Service, you will need to immediately give them the paperwork that they will need to get the process started for you. They will need:
- A copy of your driver's license.
- A copy of your vehicle title.
- Signed Power of Attorney.
An agent with A1 Auto Transport Service will be assigned to you and they will go over everything that you need to know in order to transport successfully. You will also need to know how to better prepare your vehicle for the transport which will include:
- Vacuuming the vehicle inside and cleaning it on the outside.
- Fill all fluids in the vehicle.
- Charge your battery.
- Leave one-fourth tank of gas in the vehicle's gas tank.
- Turn off and disable any car alarms and security systems.
- Remove all interior items that can be moved.
It's important to know that your vehicle will need to go through a rigorous inspection prior to shipping so if anything is left behind in your vehicle or if you forget to clean your vehicle, then you will be subject to delays which will ultimately cost you because while your vehicle is in quarantine, it will also be cleaned in order to finish the importing process.
When shipping a vehicle from the United States to Canada, you will soon learn that it is not a very expensive project to take on. Once you know where your vehicle will be shipping out of when it leaves the United States and what port it will make it to in Canada, you will be able to calculate your shipping cost. Most of the time, transport costs will run $700.00 to $2500.00. The higher prices are due to the ports being so far away from each other. Your vehicle will need to be eligible for importing from the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) as well as the Transport Canada and meet all requirements from both places before you can proceed. You will need to have paid taxes on your import; duty, excise, Goods and Service Tax and provincial/ territorial sales tax as well depending on when you apply for your license.
If your vehicle is coming from another country other than the United States, and you have paid the 5% goods and service tax, you will need to pay an additional 8% provincial part of the harmonized sales tax, or HST whenever you license your vehicle in Canada.
Methods of transporting.
There are three ways that you can transport your vehicle; open container shipping, Roll On/ Roll Off shipping, and air freight. Open car carrier shipping is a way to ship your vehicle through an open transport carrier. These carriers haul several cars at one time so your vehicle will only be charged for the slot it occupies on the trailer. Your vehicle will be rolled onto the trailer where it is secured tightly before it leaves the United States. Once it reaches its destination, it will then be driven off of the trailer and into the hands of customs. This method of shipping is the most chosen way to ship your vehicle throughout the United States because the shipping schedules are convenient, the delivery times are quicker, and it is more affordable. You can know more about the latest regulations by contacting the Embassy of Canada.
The next method of shipping is the enclosed car carrier. With this method of shipping, your vehicle is placed inside an enclosed carrier or shipping container so it can be shipped. These enclosed carriers allow for higher protection for your automobiles to avoid any flying debris that may be on the roadway as well as unpredictable weather. Your vehicle will also be protected from theft as well as vandalism when you choose this method of shipping.
Air freight shipping is another option for vehicle transport to Canada. With air freight, your vehicle is flown by air to its destination. This method is normally chosen when the vehicle is extremely valuable and you need to ship over personal items as well. This is the most expensive way to ship a vehicle.
