*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.

Canada’s capital sits in southern Ontario, at the confluence of three major rivers: the Ottawa, Gatineau, and Rideau. This is a popular location for expats, with over 20% of the city’s population being foreign-born. Being so close to the border means no lack of reliable vehicle transportation options, and the city boasts numerous rail and road connections to locations all over the USA.

Options for Transport.

Shipping to Ottawa takes two forms – pick the one that’s right for your needs:

  • Ro/Ro Shipping: Roll-on/roll-off services are economical and convenient for the bulk of customers. Your vehicle will be driven directly aboard the transport vessel, and off again once it reaches Ottawa. Straps secure the vehicles in place during transit.
  • Container Shipping: Vehicles may instead be loaded into cargo containers, which offer additional protection from damage and the elements. Those shipping antiques or other highly valuable vehicles may appreciate the safety factor.

The actual delivery can take two forms as well:

  • Terminal-to-Terminal: The vehicle will be dropped off by you at the port of departure, and picked up at the terminal in Ottawa upon arrival.
  • Door-to-Door: Door-to-door service brings the shipper to you. Your car will be collected at your home, and delivered to the point of your choosing in Ottawa.

Check Canada’s Registrar of Imported Vehicles to ensure that your vehicle is permissible. Note as well that the 72 Hour Export Law requires you to submit a copy of the title to the border crossing at least 72 hours in advance. If everything is in order, make sure you can provide the following documents on arrival:

  • The vehicle’s original title, or a DMV-certified copy.
  • Notarized copy of your photo ID (passport or other).
  • Note that vehicles arriving in Ottawa from the US are subject to customs duties, which are dependent on value and other specifications. For full details, refer to the Canada Border Services Agency.
Final Preparations.

Completing the checks on this list will ensure that your vehicle is ready to roll:

  • Scrub and vacuum the vehicle thoroughly. This will speed along the inspection process considerably.
  • Remove all personal belongings and external fixtures like ski racks.
  • Ensure that both the foot and emergency brakes are working properly.
  • Fill the gas tank roughly one-quarter full.
  • Check the battery level, and disable the alarm system (otherwise, it’s likely to drain the battery during transit).
