*Prices and times are estimated. They can vary depending on the season and the type of vehicle.

*Save the ground transport cost by delivering the vehicle to the nearest port.

*Allow an additional 10 days to process the documents.

*Prices are for 1 car in a dedicated 20ft container. This is the safest and most reliable way to transport a vehicle internationally. Other items may be included in the container to help save you money when moving.

*Using the RoRo (roll on, roll off) method is less expensive and shipments can be completed in fewer days. Contact us now for a free RoRo quote.

Location.

Located in the province of Quebec, Montreal is Canada’s second-largest city. It’s located on the Island of Montreal, and has its own port on the St. Lawrence River, predictably called the Port of Montreal. With three international container terminals, this port is a bustling one that sees more than 2,000 cargo ships annually.

Shipping Options.

You’ve got a couple of delivery options to select from when shipping from the US to Montreal:

  • Door-to-Door Shipping: With door-to-door service, your car will be picked up from your doorstep and transported to the port or rail station of departure (if applicable), or simply loaded onto a truck. Following arrival in Canada, it will be delivered to the destination of your choosing.
  • Terminal-to-Terminal Shipping: You may also elect to drop off the vehicle at a shipping terminal, and pick it up directly at the terminal of arrival in Montreal.

There are also two primary types of transportation options to choose from, depending on your needs and budget:

  • Ro/Ro Shipping: Roll-on/roll-off services are available in Montreal. Favored for its affordability and convenience, this option allows your car to be driven directly onto the vessel, and off again after arrival. Once it is in place, it will be secured to prevent movement.
  • Container Shipping: Vehicles can also be loaded into cargo containers for heightened protection from the elements and from collisions. Hardy straps secure the vehicle and container each in place. A popular choice with owners of antique vehicles who don’t mind the extra cost.
Required Documents and Permissions.

Ensure that your specific vehicle is admissible as per Canada’s Registrar of Imported Vehicles. Other documents that you will need to provide include:

  • Original vehicle title/DMV certified copy
  • Copy of your photo ID

According to the 72 Hour Export Law, the United States Customs office requires you to send a copy of the vehicle’s original title to the border crossing that you’ll be using. This must be done at least 72 hours beforehand. Failure to do so will result in the vehicle being held up at the border, and can incur a $500 fine.

Preparing Your Car for Shipping.

Be sure to complete the items on this list, in order to prepare your vehicle for the shipping process.

  • Clean your car thoroughly to expedite the inspection process and avoid long times spent in quarantine.
  • Remove all personal belongings from the car.
  • Ensure that the brakes (both foot and emergency) are fully functional.
  • Leave the gas tank roughly ΒΌ full.
  • Ensure that the insurance documents are either left inside the car, or carried with you at inspection time.
  • Shut the alarms off, and lower/remove any antennae.
Customs Duties.

Vehicles arriving in Montreal from a U.S. point of origin are subject to certain customs duties, dependent on value and a variety of other factors. Refer to the Canada Border Services Agency for specifics.
